Jobs and Process Instances

A workflow process defines the steps that must take place before CA Identity Manager can complete a particular task. A job is a runtime instance of a workflow process.

For example, the default workflow process CreateUserApproveProcess defines the steps that must occur for a new user to be approved. When a new user is actually created in CA Identity Manager and the task is submitted for approval, a job instance of CreateUserApproveProcess is created in WorkPoint Designer.

You can open, view, and modify jobs in WorkPoint Designer using an interface that is very similar to that used for editing workflow processes.

Multiple jobs based on the same process can exist simultaneously.
