Trigger Step

image0 The Trigger Step element is located in the Activity drawer of the process editor palette.

Element Details

With the Trigger element its possible to start a new workflow. The trigger element triggers a Start element, which has an enabled triggered start mechanism. On call, the trigger element creates a case and a task with the defined configuration on the Start. element. The new created task is returned to the Trigger element.

On call, after the creation of the new case and task, the workflow goes ahead through the process. When the created task starts (some time later, by user interaction or automatically by the system), the process starts at the Triggered Start element.
