Wait for Child Workflow Block
Wait for Child Workflow Block Properties
The Wait for Child workflow block waits for one of the following: a condition specified in the block to become true for a child business object, or for a timer to expire. By default, exit ports for this block allow for separate workflow paths based on these events.
Do not use the Wait for Child workflow block with approvals, because approvals have their own wait functionality.
The timeout behavior is as follows:
•If value-based timer (such as duration) is specified by values:
|days||==||null && hours == null && minutes == null,||then infinite timeout or never times out|
|days||==||-1 && hours == -1 && minutes == -1,||then infinite timeout or never times out|
|days||<=||0 && hours <= 0 && minutes <= 0,||then Immediately times out and timeout exit is used|
|days||>||0 && hours > 0 && minutes > 0,||then combined value is set as the timeout and exit timeout is used when the time passes.|
•If field-based timer:
|fieldvalue||==||null,||then infinite timeout or never times out|
|fieldvalue||<=||UtcNow,||then immediately times out and timeout exit used|
|fieldvalue||>||UtcNow,||then combined value is set as the timeout and exit timeout is used when the time passes|
You can define additional exit ports under the Exits Configuration tab. See Exits Configuration.
Continue to the next block.
General exit port for a failed integration action. A logical next step is to trigger a notification.
