Extension points for case-type creation

Suggest edit Updated on November 26, 2021

You can use extension points to customize the processing that occurs when you add or import case types to your application. For example, you can copy records from built-on applications to reuse resources.

The following extension points are supported by the New Application wizard and the Case Type Explorer:

  • @baseclass.pyIsFrameworkAssetGenerationForCasesEnabled

  • @baseclass.pyPrepareFrameworkAssetsForGenerationSetup

  • Rule-Obj-CaseType.pyPrepareFrameworkAssetsForGeneration

  • @baseclass.pyPrepareFrameworkAssetsForGenerationPost

Do not use the Obj-Save or Commit methods in your overridden versions because it can lead to unexpected results. All records that are created by your extension points are saved to the database by an activity that is higher in the call stack.
