Defining event handlers

You can define event handlers that determine the types of actions that are performed when an event in a transaction occurs. You can provide conditions that apply to the event handler.

About this task

Note: Event handlers defined for a transaction in a particular pipeline are also applicable if the same transaction is used in another pipeline.
Note: When associating a condition with an event, refer to the IBM Sterling Order Management: Javadoc to ensure that the applicable condition variables coincide with the event's key data and data published.

To set up event handlers:

  2. In the Process Modeling window, select the Order, Load, or General tab to view the corresponding process modeling tree for that base document type.

  4. Choose the Transactions tab.
  5. From the Transaction Detail window, choose the Events tab.
  6. Select the applicable event and choose the Configure Event Handler button. The Event Handler Definition work area activates.
  7. Drag the applicable actions and conditions into the work area and connect them as per the rules detailed in this section.
