Saving data in a data page as part of a case life cycle
Manage data in your application more efficiently by saving case data to a data page. As a result, you can save the data in a separate object, and then manage the data independently of the case. Consequently, you speed up your application development and promote reuse of resources.For example, in a financial application, if you save customer banking history as a data page, you can reuse the data in other rules or pages in your application that require the use of a data page.
The source of information that you want to reuse needs to be a savable data page or an autopopulated property that points to a savable data page. After updating information in a case, an application saves the information back to a selected data page.
- Add the Save data page step to your case life cycle:
- In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Case types, and then click the case type that you want to open.
- In a process where you want to preload a data page, click .
- Click Select.
- Optional: To provide a unique name for the step, in the Save data page
field, enter a value.
For example: Enter Save banking history.
- Configure how your application saves information to the data page:
Choices Actions Save data directly to the data page
- In the Step properties pane, in the Data Page Name field, enter the name of the savable data page.
- Optional: If the data page has parameters, in the Parameters section, specify values for the parameters.
Use an autopopulated property
- In the Step properties pane, select the Use associated property check box.
- In the Autopopulate Property Name field, enter the name of the property that you want to use.
- Optional: To provide more information for auditing purposes, in the Audit note field, press the Down arrow key, and then select an audit note to associate with the step.
- Optional: To enable users to navigate to this step from the case bread crumb navigation, select the Enable navigation link check box.
- Click Save.
