Customizing Oracle Workflow Notifications for iStore and other Oracle Modules
Oracle workflow embedded in Oracle Applications provides ease of change and ease of implementation, enabling you to quickly respond in the rapidly changing world of e-business.
We can customize Oracle Applications workflow to enable transactions to reflect your business practices. We can create alternative processing paths to accommodate new business processing rules or introduce new procedures.
Oracle Workflow is tightly integrated with Oracle iStore. It sends notifications to users on events like User Registration, User Approval, Share Cart, Order confirmation, User inactivation.
Following are the some of the workflows those we usually customize to implement business requirements. Those send notifications for different events occurred in Oracle iStore.
iStore Alerts Workflow – IBEALERT.wft
JTF Approval – JTF_APPR.wft
JTF Send Password – JTAUMPSW.wft
JTF UM Email Notification – JTAUMEMN.wft
System : Mailer – WFMAIL.wft
System : Error – WFERROR.wft
Oracle Workflow gives a protection and customization level to all the workflow stored in the database and requires the entire user to operate at a certain access level. The level is a numeric value ranging from 0 to 1000.
