Accessing the Oracle Workflow Home Page

Use the Oracle Workflow home page to link to all of Oracle Workflow's web-based features. This page centralizes your access to the features so you do not have to remember individual URLs.

Note: If Oracle Internet Directory/Single Sign-On integration has been implemented for your installation of Oracle Workflow, you can use single sign-on when accessing Oracle Workflow's web-based features. With single sign-on, a user who is logged into any participating component is automatically authenticated when accessing any other participating component and does not need to log in again. See: Synchronizing Workflow Directory Services with Oracle Internet Directory, Oracle Workflow Administrator's Guide.
Note: For information about the self-service home page in the Oracle Applications Framework user interface format, currently available with the version of Oracle Workflow embedded in Oracle Applications, see: Accessing the Oracle Workflow Self-Service Home Page.

arrow icon   To Access the Oracle Workflow Home Page

1. Use a web browser to connect to the URL for the home page:
<webagent> represents the base URL of the web agent configured for Oracle Workflow in your Web server. See: Setting Global User Preferences, Oracle Workflow Administrator's Guide.
Attention: This is a secured page, so if you have not yet logged on as a valid user in the current web session, you will be prompted to do so before the page appears.
2. The web page identifies the current version of Oracle Workflow.
3. A toolbar appears in the upper left corner of the Oracle Workflow home page, as well as on every other Oracle Workflow web page. The Home icon returns you to the Oracle Workflow home page. The name of the current page appears in the middle of the toolbar. The Logout icon logs you out of your current Oracle Workflow web session and the Help icon displays online help for the current screen. Some of the Event Manager web pages also include a Query icon that lets you enter query details to search for Event Manager objects.
4. Choose the Worklist link to display your list of workflow notifications. You can close or reassign your notifications directly from the Worklist or you can drill down to the details of each specific notification and close, reassign, or respond to them individually. See: To View Notifications from the Worklist.
5. Choose the Find Notifications link to locate notifications that match specific criteria and act on those notifications. See: To Find Notifications.
6. Choose the Notification Rules link to view and define your automatic notification routing rules. If you are logged in as a role with workflow administrator privileges, the Find Automatic Notification Processing Rules web page appears, letting you first display the routing rules for the role you specify. See: To Define a Rule for Automatic Notification Routing.
7. Choose the Find Processes link to query for a list of workflow process instances that match certain search criteria. Once you find a specific process instance, you can view its status details in the Workflow Monitor. See: Using the Find Processes Web Page, Oracle Workflow Administrator's Guide.
8. Choose the User Preferences link to set the preferences that control how you interact with Oracle Workflow. See: Setting User Preferences.
