A wall is a theoretical holding place for a component or an order. An active wall creates a break in the workflow, so that the user may manually inspect and continue the process as they choose. There are three types of walls: General, Reconcile, Assembly. A General Wall can occur anywhere in the workflow. A Reconcile Wall takes place during the reconciliation point of the workflow. An Assembly Wall takes place only during the point of order assembly.
In this section, you will learn how to set up and edit a wall in your Site Flow process.
