There are 3 ways to define the workflow templates used to model workflows:
- Use the workflow API to create and manage a workflow template model with WorkflowTemplateService in the Service Layer. Implement ImpEx scripts to import a workflow template definition.
- Use the workflow workspace in Backoffice by directly creating a workflow template or configuring and managing existing workflow templates.
Using the workflow workspace directly isn’t always the best choice, as the lack of a visual representation of the workflow structure greatly complicates the management and design of workflow templates.
- Use the visual Workflow Template Designer, a graphical tool for creating and editing a workflow template, to offer a more visual and intuitive user experience.
