SBM Orchestration Guide → Orchestration User Interface → Event Definition Configuration Dialog Box
This dialog box opens when you right-click Application Links under an orchestration name in App Explorer and then select Add New Event Definition.
The following table describes the configuration settings for a new custom event definition. These settings are present when Create new custom event definition is selected in the dialog box (the default selection). The Event Manager uses these settings (and the event notice, object type, and event type that you define later) to identify the orchestration workflow that will be called in response to an event raised from an external product or another process app.
|Event definition name||A unique name for the new event definition. This name does not affect the mapping of an event to a workflow.|
|Event definition version||The event definition version. This information is used to distinguish between event definitions used by the same product.|
The name of the external product or application raising the event associated with the event definition.
The instance of the event definition. This information is used to distinguish between event definitions used by the same product.
The following table describes the configuration settings for a new event definition that uses an existing event definition (.mtd) file or .wsdl file that was exported from another event definition. These configuration settings are present when you select Create from event definition file in the dialog box.
|MTD||The name of the event definition file that defines the
event definition. This file was exported from another event
definition, and contains the available messages, object
types, and event types.
Browse for a file with an .mtd (or .wsdl) extension that defines the event you want to process. Alternatively, you could enter a URL to a Web page containing information that defines the event definition.
When you are satisfied with your selection, click OK.
Note: Be sure to specify a file that contains valid ALF event definitions. Otherwise, when you click OK, SBM Composer reminds you to select a valid file.
|Documentation||Information about the event definition, as defined in the event definition file.|
|Operations||The operations defined in the process event definition file.|
