Flow-based requirements

Updated on January 18, 2022

Some business needs involve more than document validation. They may involve performing business processes that include multiple steps and multi ple users, external integrations, complicated process branching, and so on. In this case, the application launches a requirement on a process flow written specifically to meet the business need. This allows a requirement to support complicated business processes in addition to document validation.


In the Requirement above, there are no document entries at all. Instead, the Processing Flow Class and Processing Flow Name fields indicate that when this Requirement rule is instantiated as a Requirement object, it will be launched on the following flow in order to be satisfied.

Runtime results

At runtime, the Requirement rule shown above creates a Requirement object and launches it on the specified flow. Then, you receive the first assignment of the flow.

The Where Am I screen shows that you are currently on the first assignment of the specified flow.
