To manage the life cycle of your processes or process activities of your eSpace you're provided with Process Extended Actions and Process Activities Extended Actions. You can find them under your processes and process activities in the Processes Layer of the eSpace Tree.

Execute a Process Extended Action or Process Activity Extended Action

An extended action can have input parameters and output parameters.

Input parameters

Instantiated when the action is invoked, through the Arguments property of the Launch<Process Name> element.

Output parameters

You can use the output parameters of the Launch<Process Name> process extended action in one of the following ways:
