This chapter discusses what you need to know as an administrator of Oracle Business Process Management Process Spaces, including roles and permissions, task flows, how to edit pages, and how to configure groups.
This chapter contains these topics:
Both Oracle WebCenter Portal and Oracle Business Process Management Process Spaces use an identity store, each with a different set of application roles. Process Spaces group spaces come with default WebCenter Portal roles—for example: moderator, participant viewer, and public user. However, an administrator can create more roles and provide appropriate permissions to them.
For more information about creating roles and providing permissions, see Oracle Fusion Middleware User's Guide for Oracle WebCenter Portal: Spaces.
Task flows in Process Spaces display the same information available in Process Workspace. These are reusable components that have been consumed in Oracle WebCenter Portal so they can be used in Process Spaces.
For more information about the various task flows and their parameters, see Appendix A, "Creating Custom ADF Applications with Oracle Business Process Management Workspace Task Flows."
To use Process Spaces specific group spaces and templates, use the BPM Process Spaces Catalog. The BPM Process Spaces Catalog includes all the resources from the default group space catalog.
If you have upgraded from an earlier release and you want to edit the existing Process Spaces group space, you can either change the settings to use BPM Process Spaces Catalog for the particular group space or change the settings globally so that all group spaces in the application use the BPM Process Spaces Catalog.
For information about how to use a resource catalog, see Oracle Fusion Middleware User's Guide for Oracle WebCenter Portal: Spaces.
BPM Process Spaces Catalog includes the following folders:
Process Work Space Resources
Available processes: All available processes that a logged-in user can instantiate
Charts: Charts that show various statistics
Process instance list: All process instances a user can access
Task list: List of tasks that user has to act upon
Process Instance Space Resources
Audit trail: Audit trail of a given instance in tabular and graphical forms
Process calendar: Calendar that shows various important dates for a given process instance. Also capable of showing dates for all process instances of a user in context.
Stake holders: List of stake holders for a given instance.
Process Modeling Space Resources
Process catalog: Process catalog viewer that shows all published processes.
While there are no restrictions about using these task flows, they are grouped based on the group spaces to which they belong. However when a custom group space is created, you can mix and match the task flow.
For task flows to function correctly, you must pass the appropriate parameters to them. For configuring task flow parameters, see the Oracle WebCenter Portal documentation
For information about each task flow, see Appendix A, "Creating Custom ADF Applications with Oracle Business Process Management Workspace Task Flows."
You edit a page just as you would any other group space page. For more information, see Oracle Fusion Middleware User's Guide for Oracle WebCenter Portal: Spaces.
Each group space has a settings page for administering the group space. Process Workspace settings are configured to enable self-subscription for users. You can change these settings as needed. The rest of the default group space settings are similar to any other group space.
For information about configuring a group space, see Section 16.3, "Editing Pages in Process Spaces".
