Workflow engine operation order

The workflow engine runs in a predefined order relative to business rules and database operations. It caches commonly-used published workflows to improve performance.

The Run after bus. rules run workflow property defines if a workflow is Default or Deferred.

The diagram below shows the workflow engine order of operations and when Default and Deferred flows are executed. For a more general overview of engine operation order, see Execution order of scripts and engines.
