Oracle APEX 23.2 introduces a groundbreaking new feature – Workflows – that revolutionizes the way developers automate business processes within their applications. This fully integrated workflow solution empowers developers to design, manage, and execute intricate workflows without the complexities of external integration or coding.
With Workflows, you can design, manage, and execute intricate workflows without the complexities of external integration or coding. The intuitive, visual workflow designer allows you to drag and drop various workflow activities, such as sending emails, approving tasks, or executing SQL statements, onto the canvas. These activities are interconnected using transitions, defining the flow of the workflow based on specific conditions.
Unleashing the Power of Visual Workflow Design
At the heart of Oracle APEX 23.2’s Workflow feature lies an intuitive, visual workflow designer, seamlessly integrated into the APEX development environment. This drag-and-drop interface makes constructing complex workflows effortless, enabling developers to swiftly visualize and orchestrate business processes.
