After you have finished modeling your process with various forms, it is time to run it. Before you can run your process project, you have to first release and deploy it.
- The first step is to "release" a process project which creates a snapshot of its current status and gives it a dedicated version number. If you are releasing your process project for the first time, the version number will be 1.0.0.
- "Deploying" your process project can only be done after its release. The deployment makes it available for others to use. Please note that you cannot edit released or deployed process projects. If you need to make changes to an already released process project and deploy it, you will need to edit the process project and then re-release and re-deploy it.
- "Running" the process will demonstrate that the workflow has been triggered and the approval process project has started. To do this, you have to open the process builder of the deployed version and choose the form to get to the URL which is opened from the web browser.
Now that your process project is running, we need to follow how well it is working. Monitoring business processes is key to successful automation. Using monitoring capabilities, you can proactively and consistently monitor process performance, identify any issues in the process project, and take necessary actions to ensure business process continuity.
