The functionality to extract pages from a document added to a process instance and pass those pages to a new process that will be started.
For details on extracting pages, refer to section Extract Pages Dialog of chapter Viewing TIFF Documents in the End User Handbook.
Consider a scenario of an organization that often receives work via fax or regular mail containing multiple requests for a single client. These documents enter Stardust as single multi-page TIFF documents and are attached to a single process instance.
The extracting pages functionality allows operators in the Stardust Process Platform to extract pages from these TIFF files and start a process instance for each separate request. Additionally, these process instances provide a linkage so that business units can track the separate requests as a single entity.
The workflow would be as follows:
Extracting pages creates a new document version for the target document. A version comment is automatically applied to the target document as follows:
Document created by extracting pages from source_doc_id.
In case Delete Pages is marked in the Extract Pages dialog for these pages, a new version of the source document is created and a version comment is automatically applied to the source document as follows:
Extracted pages x-y to document target_doc_id and started process process_id.
