tables as the basis of its operation. Behind its very pleasant and user-friendly GUI, It‟s the database tables which store every piece of information regarding the attributes, functions, process, m essages you create while designing a workflow. If you really want to know Workflow and discover how it works, you have to understand its table structures. In this article, I have covered the tables which got affected, when you create or modify a workflow process. However it doesn ‟t include the tables which capture information at run time when you run a workflow. I have taken the „PO Approval Workflow‟ (POAPPRV) for example purpose. 1] WF_ITEM_TYPES: The wf_item_types table contains one record for each item_type created. The eight character name o f the item_type represents the “Internal Name” of the item. It also functions as the primary key for this table. Some key columns are:
NAME: It is a mandatory field. It represents the internal name of the item type. PROTECT_LEVEL: Level at which the data is protected. A mandatory field. CUSTOM_LEVEL: Level of user who last updated the row. Again a mandatory field. WF_SELECTOR: It stores the name of the PL/SQL procedure which implements selector function. This is an optional field. PERSISTENCE_TYPE: Indicates whether item type is temporary or permanent. PERSISTENCE_DAYS: Number of days until purge if persistence is temporary. Workflow Item Type Display Name and description can be found in WF_ITEM_TYPES _TL table. Also check the viewWF_ITEM_TYPES_VL.
1 SELECT * FROM WF_ITEM_TYPES WHERE NAME='POAPPRV'; 2 SELECT * FROM WF_ITEM_TYPES_TL WHERE NAME='POAPPRV'; 3 SELECT * FROM WF_ITEM_TYPES_VL WHERE NAME='POAPPRV';
2] WF_ITEM_ATTRIBUTES: This table stores definitions of attributes associated with a process. The entries in this table correspond to the “Attributes” subheading in the Workflow Builder. An item attribute works like a variable which can hold values that are specific to the process instance or which may change at run time. Some key columns are:
ITEM_TYPE: Internal name for the item type that owns the attribute. A mandatory field. NAME: Internal name of the attribute. A mandatory field. SEQUENCE: Order of the attribute within the message TYPE: Each item attribute is assigned a datatype, such as “Character”, “Number”, or “Date”. There are three fields to hold a default value, but only one of them will be populated for any item attribute, depending upon the datatype. For example, if you create an item attribute with a datatype of “Number”, and then supply a default value, that value would be stored in the “number_default” field. The “format” field stores information about a format mask that should be applied to number or date values, and the “subtype” field contains “SEND” or “RECEIVE”. The Translation table is WF_ITEM_ATTRIBUTES_TL and the related view is WF_ITEM_ATTRIBUTES_VL.
1 SELECT * FROM WF_ITEM_ATTRIBUTES WHERE ITEM_TYPE='POAPPRV' AND NAME='PO_DESCRIP TION'; 2 SELECT * FROM WF_ITEM_ATTRIBUTES_TL WHERE ITEM_TYPE='POAPPRV' AND NAME='PO_DESC RIPTION'; 3 SELECT * FROM WF_ITEM_ATTRIBUTES_VL WHERE ITEM_TYPE='POAPPRV' AND NAME='PO_DESC RIPTION';
3] WF_ACTIVITIES: This table stores the definition of an activity. Activities can be processes, notifications, functions or folders. A process activity is a modeled workflow process, which can be included as an activity in other processes to represent a sub-process. A notification activity sends a message to a performer. A functions activity performs an automated function that is written as a PL/SQL stored procedure. A folder activity is not part of a process, but it provides a means of grouping activities. Some key columns are:
ITEM_TYPE: Internal name for the Item Type that owns the message. NAME: Internal name for the activity. VERSION: It is used to support multiple versions of the same process running at the same time. The version number works in concert wit h the “begin_date” and “end_date” fields, to ensure that only one version of any activity is active at any given time. By versioning, the previously launched processes retain the process definition that was in force at the time they were launched. TYPE: The “type” field is the way that the individual types of activities can be distinguished. There are five valid values found in the “type” field: “FUNCTION”, “NOTICE”, “EVENT”, “PROCESS”, and “FOLDER”. RERUN: Determines if activity is rerun during looping. EXPAND_ROLE: Determines how many roles are required to respond to a notification activity. FUNCTION: For function activities only, the field is used to store the name of the PLSQL procedure that the Workflow Engine should call to implement the function. RESULT_TYPE: If you intend to model transitions in a process based upon values returned by an activity node, then the expected results must be predefined by supplying a lookup type, which is stored in this field. ICON_NAME: Name of activity icon used in process window. MESSAGE: For notification activities only, the field called “message” will be populated. In these cases, it will contain the internal name of the message that the notification will deliver. ERROR_PROCESS: Workflow process to run in case of an error. ERROR_ITEM_TYPE: Name of item type to execute in case of error. RUNNABLE_FLAG: Flag (Y or N) to indicate if activity is runnable. FUNCTION_TYPE: Indicates whether function type is pl/sql or internal. The Translation table is WF_ACTIVITIES_TL and the related view is WF_ACTIVITIES_VL.
To join this table to the wf_activities tables you must join all three of these fields to their corresponding fields in that table. and VARCHAR2. Some key columns are: ACTIVITY_ITEM_TYPE: Item type the activity is associated with ACTIVITY_NAME: Internal name of the activity ACTIVITY_VERSION: Version of the activity NAME: Internal name of the attribute SEQUENCE: Order of the attribute within the message TYPE: This field refers to the datatype of the values that the attribute will contain. 4] WF_ACTIVITY_ATTRIBUTES: This table defines attributes which behave as parameters for an activity. and version of the activity. LOOKUP. name. FORM. type of attribute. Activity attributes are only used by function activities. and the format used by the activity. Examples of valid attribute types are DATE. 6 7 SELECT * FROM WF_ACTIVITIES_VL WHERE ITEM_TYPE='POAPPRV' AND NAME='FIND_APPROVE R'. The Translation table is WF_ACTIVITY_ATTRIBUTES_TL and the related view is WF_ACTIVITY_ATTRIBUTES_VL. VALUE_TYPE: Defines if the default is a constant or a reference to an item attribute. DOCUMENT. Notice that the table requires three fields just to identify to which activity the attribute is attached: the item_type. . 3 4 SELECT * FROM WF_ACTIVITIES_TL WHERE ITEM_TYPE='POAPPRV' 5 AND NAME='FIND_APPROVER'. Each row includes the associated activity. ITEMATTR.1 SELECT * FROM WF_ACTIVITIES WHERE ITEM_TYPE='POAPPRV' 2 AND NAME='FIND_APPROVER'.
Each message. so the only way to uniquely identify the node to which this attribute is attached is to use the process_activity_id.01 SELECT * 02 FROM WF_ACTIVITY_ATTRIBUTES 03 WHERE ACTIVITY_ITEM_TYPE='POAPPRV' 04 AND ACTIVITY_NAME 05 AND ACTIVITY_VERSION 06 07 08 09 (SELECT VERSION FROM WF_ACTIVITIES WHERE ITEM_TYPE='POAPPRV' AND NAME ='GET_NOTIFICATION_ATTRIBUTE' ='GET_NOTIFICATION_ATTRIBUTE' = 1 AND TRUNC(SYSDATE) BETWEEN TRUNC(BEGIN_DATE) AND TRUNC(NVL(END_DATE. They can found in the “body” and “html_body” fields. Each row includes the process activity id and the associated value for the attribute. which is uniquely identified by the combination of item_type and message_name (stored in the fields “type” and “name”) receives a single record in the wf_messages table. The interesting thing about this table is that it uses the process_activity_id to identify the activity to which the attribute is attached. The same activity can be inserted into a process more than one time. 5] WF_ACTIVITY_ATTR_VALUES: This table used to track values contained in activity attributes. This table is identical in purpose to wf_item_attribute_values except it holds values for activity attributes instead of item attributes.SYSDATE 0 )) 11 ). . 6] WF_MESSAGES: The messages that are associated with notifications are stored in this table. The actual text of the message is stored only in its localization table (wf_messages_tl). 1 SELECT * FROM WF_ACTIVITY_ATTR_VALUES WHERE NAME='NTF_USER_NAME'.
Message attributes define additional information that is to be sent to. or received from the user. 3 4 SELECT * FROM WF_MESSAGES_TL 5 WHERE TYPE='POAPPRV' AND NAME='NOTIFY_BUYER'. 7] WF_MESSAGE_ATTRIBUTES: This table contains message attribute definitions. Each message may have zero or more message attributes. .1 SELECT * FROM WF_MESSAGES 2 WHERE TYPE='POAPPRV' AND NAME='NOTIFY_BUYER'. These attributes can be used as tokens in the subject or body of a message template to place variables values into the message at runtime.
='APPROVE_PO_SUB_PROCESS'. The values stored in “from_process_activity” and “to_process_activity” are numbers which represe nt the instance_id of the records from wf_process_activities from which and to which the transition is moving. Instead this information is stored in this table. and “result_code”. the node toward which the arrow points. causes the transition to be followed. When you create a process definition in the Workflow Builder by dragging various notifications and functions into the process window. the records created by the Builder are stored into this table. Not surprisingly.1 SELECT * FROM WF_MESSAGE_ATTRIBUTES 2 WHERE MESSAGE_TYPE='POAPPRV' 3 AND MESSAGE_NAME 4 AND NAME 8] WF_PROCESS_ACTIVITIES: A process is a sequence of activities performed in a pre-determined order. it is those three fields which are the most impor tant fields in this table: “from_process_activity”. when returned by the beginning node. ='NOTIFY_BUYER' ='BUYER_DISPLAY_NAME'. and the result which. 1 SELECT * FROM WF_PROCESS_ACTIVITIES 2 WHERE PROCESS_ITEM_TYPE='POAPPRV' 3 AND PROCESS_NAME 9] WF_ACTIVITY_TRANSITIONS: The flow of a process from node to node as indicated by the transition arrows is not saved in the wf_process_activities table. A transition is defined by three discrete pieces of information: the node where the arrow begins. 01 SELECT * . “to_process_activity”.

A category set is a categorization scheme for a group of items. It contains the entity definition for category sets. MTL_CATEGORIES_B This is the code combinations table for item categories. MTL_CATEGORY_SETS_TL table holds translated Name and Description for Category Sets. depending on the Multiple Assignments Allowed attribute value in a given category set definition. An item may be assigned to only one category within a category set. STRUCTURE_ID identifies the flexfield structure associated with the category set. This table stores demand and reservation information used in Available To Promise. however. MTL_CATEGORIES_TL table holds translated Description for Categories. MLS is implemented with a pair of tables: MTL_CATEGORIES_B and MTL_CATEGORIES_TL. Items always may be assigned to multiple category sets. Items are grouped into categories within the context of a category set to provide flexible grouping schemes. Category Sets now support multilingual category set name and description. However. Planning and MTL_CATEGORY_SETS_B MTL_DEMAND . the category set. MLS is implemented with a pair of tables: MTL_CATEGORY_SETS_B and MTL_CATEGORY_SETS_TL.

It is maintained as a stack of receipt records. USER_DEFINED_FLAG will distinguish the two. There are three major row types stored in the table: Summary Demand rows. and Reservation Rows. This table stores a record of every material transaction or cost update performed in Inventory. indicating a list of valid places where this item will physically exist in inventory. TRANSACTION_SOURCE_ID and TRANSACTION_SOURCE_NAME describe what the transaction is and MTL_ONHAND_QUANTITIES MTL_TRANSACTION_TYPES MTL_MATERIAL_TRANSACTIONS . i. The table also stores the TRANSACTION_ACTION_ID and TRANSACTION_SOURCE_TYPE_ID that is associated with each transaction type. etc. The quantity on hand of an item at any particular control level and location can be found by summing TRANSACTION_QUANTITY for all records that match the criteria.other Manufacturing functions.

MTL_SECONDARY_INVENTORIES This is the definition table for the subinventory. A subinventory is a section of inventory. Records are inserted into this table either through the transaction processor or by the standard cost update program. It contains seeded transaction types and the user defined ones. Subinventories are assigned to items (in a many to one relationship). Open Demand Rows.
MTL_ITEM_CATALOG_GROUPS_B MTL_ITEM_REVISIONS_B MTL_ITEM_TEMPLATES_B MTL_DESCRIPTIVE_ELEMENTS MTL_DESCR_ELEMENT_VALUES ORG_ACCT_PERIODS . When an item is defined a starting revision record is written out to this table. It stores the descriptive element values for a specific item. It stores the descriptive element definitions for an item catalog group. An item catalog group consists of items that can be described by the same set of descriptive elements or item properties. This is the definition table for item templates. Descriptive elements are defining properties used to describe in the catalog group. It stores revision levels for an inventory item. When an item is associated with a particular item catalog group. This is the code combinations table for item catalog groups. one row per descriptive element (for that catalog group) is inserted into this table. MTL_ITEM_ATTRIBUTES This table stores information on item attributes. the item inherits the descriptive elements for that group which then behave like additional item attributes. and the kind of validation enforced on the attribute.against what entity it was performed. When an item is associated with an item catalog group. so every item will at least have one starting revision. The table stores the attribute name. It contains the user-defined name (TEMPLATE_NAME) and description (DESCRIPTION) ONLY for backward compatibility. You can use a template to set certain item attributes. the corresponding user-friendly name seen by the users. It holds the open and closed financial periods for organizations. Each row in the table corresponds to an attribute.
