CIM Message Processing
Workflow Manager has the capability to receive and process messages from your Work Management System (WMS). This functionality may be customized to work programmatically with your WMS. In this case, messaging will be handled programmatically and the user needs to do nothing more.
Workflow Manager may also process and output CIM-compliant XML using two tasks included in the ArcFM sample data (without requiring customization). To view these tasks, they must be configured according to the Upgrade Workflow Manager to 9.1.2 SP1 page in Set Up Process Framework section of the ArcFM Solution Configuration Guide. The following tasks may be named differently if your administrator has elected different names. These are the task names as they appear in the ArcFM sample data.
Process CIM Message
This task takes a CIM-compliant XML as an input parameter, reads the noun and verb provided in the request and processes the request. If the message asks for a return XML, it is written out to the path provided in the parameter when the task was configured. If the parameters for the incoming and outgoing XML were not given values, the user will be prompted to enter them when executing the task. In the sample data, this task is available when a filter node is selected.
Write Out CIM XML Message (get)
This task writes out to a CIM-compliant XML information about the currently selected design or work request node. The task takes a CIM-compliant XML as an input parameter. It reads the verb provided in the XML (an Administrator may also configure the New Verb parameter to change the verb) and processes the message on selected node. It writes out information about the node to a CIM-compliant XML. If the parameters for the incoming and outgoing XML were not given values when the Administrator configured the task, the user will be prompted to enter XML paths when executing the task. This task will be available only when a design or work request node is selected.
