About time triggered transactions

A time-triggered transaction, or agent, is a program that performs a variety of individual functions, automatically and at specific time intervals. It is not triggered by conditions, events, or user input.

There are three types of time-triggered transactions:
  • Business process transactions - responsible for processing day-to-day transactions
  • Monitors - watch and send alerts for processing delays and exceptions
  • Purges - clear out data that may be discarded after having been processed
You can extend the transactions provided by the application by using one of the following mechanisms:
  • User exits
  • Event handlers
