Workflow queries—also called role queries—are queries that Oracle PeopleSoft Workflow uses as part of automated business processes to determine which users should receive work items.


Because workflow queries are run by the system rather than by users, the PeopleSoft application does not run the same prequery security checks.


In particular, the application does not check which access groups the user who is running a workflow query can access—because the user is a workflow agent. (For this reason, you may not want to allow all users to create workflow queries.)


Upon completion of this lesson, you will be able to define workflow queries.
