A repository is a logical collection of entities that define a given business process.

The following entities are included in a repository:

  • Pipelines
  • Transactions
  • Statuses
  • Conditions
  • Actions
  • Services

Sterling Order Management System Software provides a repository for each of the process types. When creating a new process type from a base process type, the corresponding base repository entities are copied and attached to the new process type. For example, when a Sales Order Fulfillment process type is created from the Fulfillment base process type, the base repository entities contained in Fulfillment are copied and attached to Sales Order Fulfillment.
