process diagrams to represent the activities that are performed
in processes. Operations appear as rounded rectangles with an icon that
identifies the operation.
From the services that are available, many different operations
can be used to implement the process. The operation determines the
activity that the AEM forms Server performs when the operation is
executed at run time. For example, when a process diagram includes
an Assign Task operation, when the process is invoked and the operation
is executed, the User service assigns a task to a user or group.
Most operations have properties that you need to configure so
that they function properly. For example, an operation that acts
on process data requires you to specify the data to use. All operations
have general properties that you can configure, such as the name
and description of the operation and the order in which the routes
that follow the operation are evaluated. They also have properties
that are specific to the operation.
