Business rules and business process flows

When a user enters a data step in a business process flow control, the data changes are also applied to the form fields and this will trigger the business rules and JavaScript for those form fields.

Changes applied by business rules and/or JavaScript are automatically applied to the business process flow control as follows:

  • If you hide a field in a form, the corresponding step will also be hidden in the business process flow control.
  • If you make a form field business-required, the corresponding step will be set to required.
  • If you set a value in a form field, that value will be set in the corresponding data step within the business process flow.
This only applies to actions performed by business rules and JavaScript. If, in the field properties on the form, you uncheck the Visible by default box, then this does not affect the business process flow control.
