The following topic shows how you can create an approval for a rich client or web client in a Microsoft Dynamics AX workflow. Before you can create approvals, you must have a workflow type. For more information, see Creating a Workflow Type.

  1. Create an approval in the Application Object Tree (AOT). For more information, see, How to: Create a Workflow Approval.

  2. Create approval event handler classes for the StartedEventHandler and CanceledEventHandler property settings and then bind the event handlers to the approval. For more information, see How to: Create a Workflow Event Handler.

  3. Set the Document property for the workflow approval to match the workflow type Document property setting. For more information, see How to: Create a New Workflow Type.

  4. Create a display menu item and then bind the menu item to the DocumentMenuItem property for the approval. For more information, see How to: Associate a Display Menu item with a Workflow Task or Approval.

  5. Create menu item classes for Resubmit and Delegate. Bind the classes to the action menu items that you will create in the next step. For more information, see Classes in X++.

    NoteNote

    You can optionally use the WorkflowWorkItemActionManager Class for the Delegate action menu item. Optionally, create your own class to handle the approval delegate action.

  6. Create action menu items for the approval ResubmitMenuItem and DelegateMenuItem properties and then bind the actions to the approval. For more information, see How to: Associate an Action Menu Item with a Workflow Task or Approval Outcome.

  7. Create classes for each approval outcome. Bind the classes to the action menu items that you will create in the next step. For more information, see Classes in X++.
