Adding a Stage
Note:
If you leave the Stages tab while adding a stage and before you have clicked Save, your changes will be discarded.
Note:
Before you make modifications to process model stage settings, be aware of the interaction of these settings between Designer and webMethods Monitor. For more information, see About Synchronizing Stages and Events with Software AG Designer .
*To add a stage
1. On the Business Processes page, locate the process model that you want to work with and click Edit icon Edit.
2. In the Process Stages and EDA Events window, click the Stages tab.
3. Click Add Stage. A new row appears in the stage list, populated with default information.
4. Configure the following fields to define the stage.
Note:
Any data entry validation errors are displayed within the stage row.
The table below explains how to configure the fields.
Column
Description
Name
Type a name for the stage.
Note:
The Name is not editable after you click Save. If you want to rename a stage, you must delete it and then recreate it with the new name.
Note:
There is an 80-character limit for the stage name when double-byte characters are used in an IBM DB2 database. If you are not using DB2, or if your characters are single byte, then the stage name is limited to 255 characters.
Description
Optional. Type a description of the stage.
Start Milestone
Click the list and select a milestone. Optionally, you can type characters in the text box to filter the list. The Start Milestone and End Milestone selections must be different.
Click the list to the right of the milestone selection, and click Start or Complete to specify the start or the completion of the selected milestone.
End Milestone
Click the list and select a milestone. Optionally, you can type characters in the text box to filter the list. The Start Milestone and End Milestone selections must be different.
Click the list to the right of the milestone selection, and click Start or Complete to specify the start or the completion of the selected milestone.
Condition
*Select < (less than) or > (greater than). Default is <.
*Enter a positive whole number. The maximum supported values are as follows:
*2,777,777 hours
*166,666,666 minutes
*9,999,999,999 seconds
*9,999,999,999,999 milliseconds
*Default is 1.
*Select hours, minutes, seconds, or milliseconds. Default is hours.
The result is a condition. If the condition specifies <, then the stage is breached when the cycle time exceeds the specified time period. If the condition specifies >, then the stage is breached when the cycle time is less than the specified time period. For example:
< 1 hours means that the stage must complete in less than 1 hour or a ProcessStageBreached event will be emitted.
Stop Tracking On Breach
Stops stage processing for all remaining stages in the process instance when a stage breach occurs in this stage, and only one stage breached EDA event is emitted. Remaining stages are not tracked and will be shown as Incomplete in Monitor. The check box is cleared by default.
5. Click Save.
