Step specification

A workflow definition specifies the following items (among others):

  • Who processes the work for the step
  • The step processor application that the participant is to use
  • The attachments that are required
  • What data is necessary
  • What responses the participant can choose

Route logic

A workflow definition contains routing logic that specifies how work advances from one step to the next.
