Create a New Workflow Category for Your Product Management Workflows

Now that we have the editor in the right place, we can start building our framework for the workflows themselves. The first step is to create a Workflow Category to store all of our new workflows against.

NOTE: This is part of the Developing a Product Approval Workflow in Dynamics AX 2012 blog series where we show how to develop a completely new workflow to manage the new product approval process. If you want to see all of the other posts in this series, click here.

How to do it…

To create a new Workflow Category, follow these steps:

  1. From within the workflow development project, right-mouse-click on the parent folder, and from the New menu, select Workflow and then Workflow Category to create a new category for your workflows.
  2. Change the Name of the workflow category to ProductManagementWFCategory and change the Label to be Product information management workflows.
  3. Change the Module parameter to Inventory.

    Note: This is the same as the EnumParameter of the workflow editor that we just created which tells the editor to use the workflows that are assigned this category.

  4. When you have done that, save your project to make sure that you didn’t introduce any errors.
