Configure Business Object Lifecycles
Lifecycle configuration tasks include adding controls to your forms and setting up reports to identify items in specific statuses.
To configure Business Object lifecycles:
- Decide whether users can edit items when in the final stages of a lifecycle or not. See Define Business Object Rights (Access to Data).
- Configure your forms so that users can access lifecycle functionality. See Add Lifecycle Controls to a Form.
- Set up any reports you require. An example of how to produce a report showing the number of open Incidents within the Incident lifecycle and a breakdown of the current status of each record. See Report on Business Objects Based on Lifecycle Status.
