Discussion

Represents the workflow structure of a job. A workflow contains steps representing individual tasks, connected by paths that define the flow. Each individual task that must be completed to complete the business process is identified and created as a step. Steps are instances of step types and are associated with a specific workflow. A workflow can have multiple instances of the same step type, and each of the instances can have properties configured in a different way from others.
