Business event Overview

Business events provide a mechanism that lets external systems receive notifications from finance and operations apps. In this way, business actions can be performed in response to the business events.

Business events occur when a business process is run. During a business process, users who participate in it perform business actions to complete the tasks that make up the business process.

A business action that a user performs can be either a workflow action or a non-workflow action. Approval of a purchase requisition is an example of a workflow action, whereas confirmation of a purchase order is an example of a non-workflow action. Both types of actions can generate business events that external systems can use in integration and notification scenarios.
