Assigning Subprocesses to End Users to Create Collaborative Long-Running Workflows
Using the subprocess step, you can configure workflows that assign interactive subprocess workflows to end users to create collaborative workflow processes. An example of a collaborative workflow is one that includes a requirement for approvals; the route the workflow takes as tasks is a route across multiple users.
Use the Step Recipient field on a subprocess step to create collaborative workflows. Assignment occurs based on the login name, not on the Position or User ID. This login name may be a literal value, it may be held in a process property or a buscomp field, or it may be the result of an expression.
NOTE: The Process Designer cannot validate the data supplied to make sure that it represents a valid login name at design time.
To assign subprocesses to end users
- Create a subprocess step.
- Right-click the subprocess step and choose Show Recipients.
- In the WF Step Recipients applet, set the Recipient Name field to the login name of the assignee (the end user who will be assigned the subprocess).
