SBM Orchestration Guide → Orchestration Concepts → About Application Links and Event Definitions
An event definition is a specific format that lets SBM applications and external products declare the events they can raise, and lets receiving applications understand these events so they can respond to them. Event definitions are listed under the Application Links heading in App Explorer.
An event definition includes data specific to the application or external product, and the following event values: EventType, ObjectType, Product, ProductVersion, and ProductInstance. SBM uses the event definition to construct an event map that is deployed to the Event Manager. At runtime, the Event Manager receives the event, and if the event is in a deployed event map, it invokes the associated asynchronous orchestration workflow, passing the event definition data to the workflow.
