Create Object Workflow Block

The Create Object workflow block creates a business object in the workflow. With the Create Object workflow block, you can create a business object that is unrelated to the business object in context.

You can also use the Create Object workflow block to create a business object on a recurring basis by linking it to a schedule entry. For example, to create an incident every month to handle some recurring activity, such as monitoring the disk spaces of your test servers, create a schedule entry record that runs each month, then create a workflow using the Create Object workflow block that creates an incident, and associate it to the schedule entry record.

Exit ports for the Create Object workflow block allow workflow paths for successful and failed update actions.
