To Create a Notification Activity
You can also select a message in the navigator tree and drag and drop the message into the Notifications branch of the same item type to create a notification activity that sends that message.
2. A notification activity must have an Internal Name (all uppercase and no leading/trailing spaces) and a Display Name, which is the translatable name that appears in your process diagram. Use the description to provide an explanation about this activity.
Attention: To update the internal name for an activity once it is defined, you must use a special SQL script called wfchact.sql. You should only use this script to correct errors in an activity's internal name during design time. Do not use this script to rename activities that are involved in running instances of processes. See: Wfchact.sql, Oracle Workflow Administrator's Guide.
Caution: Do not include colons ":" or leading/trailing spaces in your internal name.
You can choose <None> as the result type if your activity does not return a value, or if your workflow process does not depend on the value returned.
4. Select the name of the message you want this notification to send. See: To Create a Message
If you check Expand Roles and you assign a message that has a special Result, to this notification activity, then use the Function field to specify the name of a custom PL/SQL stored procedure that tallies the responses you get back from each of the recipients of this notification. Specify the procedure using the format: <package_name
>. See: Voting Activity
You can also drag and drop icon files from the Windows Explorer or File Manager onto an activity in your navigator tree to assign that icon to the activity.
8. Choose Apply to save your changes.
10. Select the Roles tab page to specify the roles that have access to this notification activity. (This functionality will be supported in a future release.)
12. Choose OK to save your changes and close the property pages.
13. The notification activity now appears beneath Notifications in the navigator tree. You can review or edit the properties of this activity at any time by double-clicking on the activity in the navigator tree or by selecting the activity and choosing Properties from the Edit menu or by pressing Enter on your keyboard.
