Specifying general properties of Adapter workstep

Similar to that for an Activity workstep (Specifying general properties of Activity workstep), you can use the General tab to define the general properties of an Adapter workstep.
1. Identify the workstep by entering a name in the Name box. Workstep names can contain only alphanumeric characters and the underscore (_) character can be used.
Note: There is no default duration shown in the Overdue in box for Custom and Managed Adapters. There is no Performer box for managed adapters.
2. To define other general properties of an Adapter workstep that are identical to those already described for Activity worksteps, refer to Specifying general properties of Activity workstep.
Note: You can enter a description (optional) for the adapter workstep in the Description tab. A description can be up to 4095 characters.
Note: For Business Processes, you can use the Alerts tab to associate an alert with the Adapter workstep when it is initially activated, completed, or as an Overdue action when it is overdue. For more information, see Associating an alert with a workstep.
