What is a Business Process?

Business Process refers to the collection of one or more pre-built Business Components  that can be used across different Test Cases.

* It cannot be executed Individually.

Once you have created any Business Process, it can be easily modified and reused repetitively.

For example:

Let’s Suppose you are a Admin of an Enterprise Application say, Workday. Your requirement is to add a new user having  valid login credentials and assign privileges to him.

For this purpose, you can create a Business Process for by calling the pre-built  Business Component for adding a new user in to it.

Once, the Business Component  is added to the Business Process, you can add another pre-built Business Component  for assign privileges to the User.

Likewise, You can add other Business Components to the Business Processes depending upon the requirement of the Test Scenario.
