9 Managing Process Workspace (for Administrators)

This chapter explains the various tasks an administrator can perform in Process Workspace, including setting the display of the Work Items panel, and administering and configuring task-related information.

This chapter contains these topics:

9.1 Setting the Display of the Work Items Panel in Process Workspace

To set the display of the Work Items panel, administrators can specify various application preferences. To do this in Process Workspace, click Administration, then click Application Preferences.

Figure 9-1 Setting Application Preferences

This graphic is described in the text.

This section contains these topics:

9.1.1 How to Specify the Login Page Realm Label in Process Workspace

If the identity service is configured with multiple realms, then, when a user logs in to Oracle BPM Worklist, the login page displays a list of realm names. LABEL_LOGIN_REALM specifies the resource bundle key used to look up the label to display these realms. You can change the term realm to fit the user community—terms such as country, company, division, or department may be more appropriate. To change the term realm, customize the resource bundle, specify a resource bundle key for this string, and then set the Login page realm label parameter to point to that resource bundle key.

For information about customizing the resource bundle, see Appendix B, "Customizing a Resource Bundle".

For information about specifying a resource bundle, see Section 9.1.2, "How to Specify the Resource Bundle in Process Workspace."

9.1.2 How to Specify the Resource Bundle in Process Workspace

The resource bundle provides the strings displayed in the Worklist Application. By default, the class path to the resource bundle is:

As an administrator, you can add or modify strings shown in the application by creating a custom resource bundle. You can then use the Resource Bundle field in the Application Preferences page to specify the class path to your custom resource bundle.

For more information about customizing the resource bundle, see Appendix B, "Customizing a Resource Bundle."

9.1.3 How to Specify the Language Locale Information in Process Workspace

From the Application Preferences page, you can specify how the Process Workspace display language is determined. Information about the language locale can be derived from either the user's browser or the identity provider that stores information on worklist users.

You reach the Application Preferences page by clicking Administration on the global toolbar at the very top of Process Workspace, then, under Administration Areas, selecting Application Preferences. The Application Preferences panel appears in the right pane. To specify the display language, in the Use language settings of field, select either Browser or Identity Provider.

Figure 9-2 Specifying Language Local Information

Description of Figure 9-2 follows
Description of "Figure 9-2 Specifying Language Local Information"

9.1.4 How to Specify a Branding Logo in Process Workspace

A branding logo is the image displayed in the top left corner of every page of the Worklist Application. The Oracle logo is the default, and you can change it to one of your choosing.

Note:

The ideal image size is 120px x 40px (length x width) for proper display. Although images with high resolution and size are compressed to fit the branding logo size, smaller images display better.

To specify the branding logo:

Do one of the following:

  • Refer to an external image-hosting website. To do this: In the Branding Logo field, enter the URL of the image.

  • Upload an image to a particular location on the server and, in the Branding Logo field, enter its relative path, for example, /afr/my_logo.png.

  • Refer to an image from the shared library. To do this: In the Branding Logo field, enter the path of the logo name as found in the shared library, for example, /my_logo.png

Note:

Customizing the branding logo from either the Worklist Application or Process Workspace changes the logo in both applications. For example, if you change the logo from Worklist Application, then the Process Workspace logo is changed automatically.

For more information about deploying images in a shared library, see Appendix D, "Deploying Images and JAR files as Part of a Shared Library JAR file".

9.1.5 How to Specify the Branding Title in Process Workspace

You can specify the title for your site, changing the default title, BPM Worklist, to one that you choose.

To specify the branding title:

Do one of the following:

  • In the Branding Title field, enter a simple string for your title.

  • In the Branding Title field, enter a label that refers to a key-value pair in the Resource Bundle. In this way, you can internationalize your title, for example, LABEL_WORKLIST_TITLE.

9.1.6 How to Choose a Skin in Process Workspace

A skin determines the look and feel of your graphical interface.

To choose a skin:

Do one of the following:

  • From the Choose a Skin list, select one of the default ADF skins

  • Upload your own customized skin .css file in a .JAR file and deploy it as a part of shared library. Then, when you restart your application from the console, your custom skin appears in the Choose a Skin list.

To create a customized skin:

  1. Create a directory structure similar to the following example:

    C:\temp\META-INF\adf\oracle\skin\images
         META-INF\skins\custom.css
         META-INF\trinidad-skins.xml
    

    Note that, in this example, you can change the word custom to the name of your own customized skin.

  2. Make sure the content of trinidad-skins.xml file is as follows:

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
    <skins xmlns="http://myfaces.apache.org/trinidad/skin">
       <skin>
         <id>custom.desktop</id>
         <family>custom</family>
         <extends>custom.desktop</extends>
         <render-kit-id>org.apache.myfaces.trinidad.desktop</render-kit-id>
         <style-sheet-name>skins/custom.css</style-sheet-name>
       </skin>
    </skins>
    
  3. Create the .JAR file by issuing the following command from the c:\temp directory:

    jar -cvf customSkin.jar META-INF/
    
  4. Copy this Jar file to the directory /scratch/username/sharedLib.

Note:

Refer to the images in your CSS file this way:

../adf/oracle/skin/images/example.gif (with the two trailing dots).

This allows the search for the META-INF root to start one directory above the META-INF/skin directory in which the .css file is located.

For more information about deploying images in a shared library, see Appendix D, "Deploying Images and JAR files as Part of a Shared Library JAR file".

9.1.7 How to Enable Customized Applications and Links in Process Workspace

For Process Workspace, you can create customized external applications and links that become available in the External Applications panel. Moreover, in both Process Workspace and the Worklist Application, you can specify the columns that appear in the Task Details pane.

To enable customized applications:

  1. In the Application Preferences page, enter the class name of your custom application in the Application customization class name field.

  2. Restart the application from the console.

    Depending on your customization, you can now see it's effects.

    If your customization is for Process Workspace and involves either creating an external application or specifying inbox columns in the Task Details pane or both, you will see the following:

    For information about customizing applications, se Appendix C, "Customizing Applications in Process Workspace and the Worklist Application".

9.1.8 How to Show or Hide the Default Tab Pages in Process Workspace

If you are an administrator, you can specify whether to show or hide the Process Workspace standard tabs, for example, Tasks, Activity Guides, Process Tracking, and Standard Dashboards. Also, from the tabs you decide to show, you can select the one to be the default tab when a user logs in.

To Show or Hide the Standard Process Workspace Tabs:

  1. Select Administration, then Application Preferences.

  2. From the Show Standard Tabs row, select the checkboxes for the tabs you want to show, or deselect them for the tabs you want to hide.

  3. From the tabs you decide to show, specify which is the default tab when a user logs in. Do this by selecting the radio button next to the check box for that tab. If you do not select a default tab, then the standard tabs will not show or hide as you specified.

Figure 9-4 shows the Application Preferences page with the Show Standard Tabs row highlighted. It calls out a check box for selecting a tab to show or hide, and a radio button for selecting a tab to be the default at user login.

Figure 9-4 Show Standard Tabs Selection

This graphic is described in the text.

9.2 Administering and Configuring Task-Related Information in Process Workspace

This section contains these topics:

9.2.1 Managing Mapped Attributes (Flex Fields) in Process Workspace

Human workflow mapped attributes (formerly referred to as flex fields) store and query use case-specific custom attributes. These custom attributes typically come from the task payload values. Storing custom attributes in mapped attributes provides the following benefits:

  • They can be displayed as a column in the task listing

  • They can filter tasks in custom views and advanced searches

  • They can be used for a keyword-based search

For example the Requester, PurchaseOrderID, and Amount fields in a purchase order request payload of a task can be stored in the mapped attributes. An approver logging into Process Workspace can see these fields as column values in the task list and decide which task to access. The user can define views that filter tasks based on the mapped attributes. For example, a user can create views for purchase order approvals based on different amount ranges. If the user must also retrieve tasks related to a specific requester or a purchase order ID, the user can specify this in the keyword field and perform a search to retrieve the relevant tasks.

For the mapped attributes to be populated, an administrator must create mapped attribute mappings, as follows:

  1. Specify a label for the mapped attribute to be populated.

  2. Map the payload attribute that contains the data to the label.

These mappings are valid for a certain task type. Therefore, each task type can have different mapped attribute mappings. After the mapping is complete and a new task is initiated, the value of the payload is transferred to the mapped attribute that has just been mapped. Tasks initiated before the mapping do not contain the value in the mapped attribute. Only top-level simple type attributes in the payload can be transferred to a mapped attribute. Complex attributes or simple types nested inside a complex attribute cannot be promoted. It is important to define the payload for a task in the Human Task Editor, keeping in mind which attributes from the payload may must promoted to a mapped attribute. All text and number mapped attributes are automatically included in the keyword-based search.

Essentially, the Human Task Editor is used only when defining the payload for a task. All other operations are performed at runtime.

Directory naming is not available concomitantly with the flex file naming convention.

Note:

Mapped attributes must be defined before instances of the business process are generated. Only instances generated after mapped attributes are created reflect the correct mapped attributes. Older instances of the business process do not reflect subsequent mapped attribute changes.

For more information about how to map mapped attributes, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite.

9.2.1.1 How to Specify Mapped Attributes

An administrator, or users with the necessary privileges, can use mapped attributes, shown in Figure 9-5, to transfer data from the payload to inline mapped attributes. By promoting data to mapped attributes, the data becomes searchable and can be displayed as columns on the task list.

Administrators and users with the appropriate privileges can map both public and protected mapped attributes. They see both a Public Flex Fields node and a Protected Flex Fields node in the Administration panel as shown in Figure 9-5.

Figure 9-5 Specifying a Mapped Attribute

Description of this graphic follows.
Description of "Figure 9-5 Specifying a Mapped Attribute"

For more information about public and protected mapped attributes, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Modeling and Implementation Guide for Oracle Business Process Management.

To create labels: 

To create a mapped attribute mapping, an administrator first defines a semantic label, which provides a more meaningful display name for the mapped attribute. Click Add to use the Create Label dialog box shown in Figure 9-6.

Figure 9-6 Creating a Label

Description of this graphic follows.

As the figure shows, labelName is mapped to the task attribute TextAttribute1. The payload attribute is also mapped to the label. In this example, the Text attribute type is associated with labelName. The result is that the value of the Text attribute is stored in the TextAttribute3 column, and labelName is the column label displayed in the user's task list. Labels can be reused for different task types. You can delete a label only if it is not used in any mappings.

A mapped payload attribute can also be displayed as a column in a custom view and used as a filter condition in both custom views and workflow rules. The display name of the payload attribute is the attribute label that is selected when doing the mapping.

Note the following restrictions:

  • Only simple type payload attributes can be mapped.

  • A mapped attribute (and thus a label) can be used only once per task type.

  • Data type conversion is not supported for the number or date data types. For example, you cannot map a payload attribute that is assigned the string datatype to a label that is assigned the datatype number.

To browse all mappings: 

  1. Click Browse all mappings.

  2. Select a row in the label table to display all the payload attributes mapped to a particular label.

To edit mappings by task type: 

  1. Click Edit mappings by task type, optionally provide a task type, and click Search.

  2. Select a task type and click OK.

  3. With the task type displayed in the Edit mappings by task type field, click Go.

  4. Select a mapping label and click Select.

9.2.2 Administering Approval Groups in Process Workspace

An approval group consists of a name and a predefined set of users configured to act on a task in a certain pattern. This pattern is similar to a human workflow routing slip pattern where users can act on tasks in serial or parallel. An approval group also can contain a nested approval group in the pattern.

The name of an approval group is necessary when specifying the approval group list builder as discussed in Oracle Fusion Middleware Modeling and Implementation Guide for Oracle Business Process Management. The pattern configured in the approval group is used by default to order the users who must act on the task. However, when creating the list builder, the default pattern can be overridden by specifying the voting method.

The sections that follow describe the user interface that enables users with administrator rights to manage approval groups.

9.2.2.1 How to View Approval Groups

To view approval groups: 

  1. From the Process Workspace toolbar, click Administration. The Administration Areas panel appears in the left pane.

  2. Under Task Administration, click Approval Groups. The Groups page appears in the right pane.

  3. In the navigation pane of the Approval Groups page, select an approval group. A details page for that approval group appears in the right pane, similar to the one shown in Figure 9-7.

9.2.2.8 How to Rename an Approval Group

To rename an approval group: 

  1. Enter the new name of the approval group in the Name field.

  2. Click Apply.

The name change is reflected in other approvals groups in which this approval group is nested.

9.2.2.9 Using Dynamic Approval Groups

Dynamic Approval Groups provide a way to create approval groups through a custom Java class at runtime. This requires the following:

  • Writing a custom dynamic approval group class for the custom implementation by the developer

  • Registering the custom dynamic approval group using the worklist apps UI by the IT department

  • Making the class file available in a globally well known directory that is part of the Service Integration class path

9.2.2.9.1 How to Write a custom Dynamic Approval Group Class

To define a dynamic approval group, the user must define an implementation class using the interface file IDynamicApprovalGroup.java, defined by AMX for dynamic approval groups in the package oracle.bpel.services.workflow.task. This package contains only one public method that gets the approval group members. The Task object will be the only input parameter. The primary key list can be obtained from the task task/systemAttributes/collectionTarget.

Example 9-1 Implementation Class

************** IDynamicApprovalGroup.java ******************

public interface IDynamicApprovalGroup {

    /**
        *  Get members of this dynamic approval group 
        *  @param task Property bag containing information required to generate 
             the approver list
        *  @return list of IApprovalListMember including sequence, member, member_
             type; null for empty group
        *  The primary key list can be obtained from task:
             task/systemAttributes/collectionTarget
       */

   public List getMembers(Task task )
       throws WorkflowException; 
}
**********************************************************

Figure 9-11 shows a code snippet for a sample dynamic approval group class.

Figure 9-11 Code for Dynamic Approval Group Class

Code snippet for a sample dynamic approval group class
9.2.2.9.2 How to Register the Custom Dynamic Approval Group Class

For more information, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Modeling and Implementation Guide for Oracle Business Process Management

9.2.2.9.3 How to Make the Custom Dynamic Approval Group Class Available

To make the class file available in a globally well-known directory that is part of the Service Integration class path, put your class files in the following WebLogic Server directory:

$BEAHOME/AS11gR1SOA/soa/modules/oracle.soa.ext_11.1.1/classes

For example, for the Java class oracle.apps.DynamicAG, the path would be $BEAHOME/AS11gR1SOA/soa/modules/oracle.soa.ext_11.1.1/classes/oracle/apps/DynamicAG.class. You must restart WebLogic Server after you put your class files there.

9.2.2.9.4 How to Add a Dynamic Approval Group

The following procedure explains how to add a dynamic approval group.

  1. In the left pane, click the Add (+) button and select Create Dynamic from the list

  2. Enter a name and a class for the group.

  3. Click Apply to save the group.

9.2.2.10 How to Delete an Approval Group

To delete an approval group: 

  1. In the Approval Group page, choose the approval group you want to delete.

  2. Click the Delete (-) button.

    A confirmation dialog box appears.

  3. Click OK.

    The approval group is deleted.

Note:

If the approval group you deleted is nested in other approval groups, it also is deleted from those parent groups.

9.2.3 Using Task Configuration in Process Workspace

Task Configuration in Process Workspace lets business users and administrators review the rules that were configured automatically by the workflow designer. These predefined rules can be changed for a specific customer based on the customer's applicable corporate policies.

For example, if a corporate policy requiring two levels of approvals for expense amounts greater than 1000 is changed to a policy requiring three levels, the customer can use this web-based application to change the rule rather than having its IT department modify the rule in the underlying process and then deploy it again. Any change made to the rule will be applied starting with the next instance; instances that are already in progress will use the current rule definitions.

Task Configuration enables you to edit the event driven and data-driven rules associated with an approval flow at run time; that is, when the workflow has already been deployed.

To access the Task Configuration page:

  1. From the Process Workspace toolbar, click Administration. The Administration Panel appears in the left pane.

  2. In the Administration Panel, under Task Administration, click Task Configuration. The Task Configuration page appears in the right pane, as illustrated in Figure 9-12.

Figure 9-12 Task Configuration: Main Page

This illustration is described in the text.
Description of "Figure 9-12 Task Configuration: Main Page"

The Tasks to be configured section in the right pane lists all workflow tasks that have been configured to use approval-flow rules. It also provides a search capability. In the view mode, the right panel displays the default configuration and rules for overriding the approval-flow list builder configuration. The rule configurations are displayed based on the stages defined in the approval flow.

9.2.3.1 How to Edit Event-Driven Settings

This section contains information about event-driven settings (task metadata).

To edit an event-driven setting: 

  1. From the Process Workspace toolbar, click Administration. The Administration Panel appears in the left pane.

  2. In the Administration Panel, under Task Administration, click Task Configuration. The Task Configuration page appears in the right pane.

  3. In the Tasks to be configured pane, select a task. The main page refreshes in edit mode.

  4. Make your changes and click Apply to save them.

Note:

An improper or incomplete rules definition in a list-creation rule set can cause runtime errors. Errors can be caused by the following:

  • No rule was defined in the rule set.

  • None of the conditions defined in the rule was met.

Ensure that rules are properly defined to handle all conditions.

9.2.3.1.1 How to Specify Routing Settings

The Event Driven page contains a limited set of the routing options available in the Human Task Editor.

Approval aggregation requirements can be any of the following:

  • None

  • Once per task

  • Once per stage

9.2.3.1.2 How to Define Expiration and Escalation Policies

Defining expiration and escalation policies in Process Workspace is similar to how it is done in the Human Task Editor. For more information, see the section "How to Escalate, Renew, or End the Task" in the chapter "Designing Human Tasks" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite.

9.2.3.1.3 How to Specify Notification Settings

Creating or updating notification settings for a task in Process Workspace is similar to how it is done in the Human Task Editor. For more information, see the section "How to Specify Participant Notification Preferences" in the chapter "Designing Human Tasks" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite.

9.2.3.1.4 How to Allow Task Access

Access-rule settings can be set to control the actions a user can perform and is similar to how it can be done in the Human Task Editor. Content and action permissions can be specified based on the logical role of a user, such as creator (inititator), owner, assignee, and reviewers.

For more information, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Modeling and Implementation Guide for Oracle Business Process Management.

9.2.3.2 How to Edit Data-Driven Settings

To edit a data-driven setting (a rule or condition):

  1. From the Process Workspace toolbar, click Administration. The Administration Panel appears in the left pane.

  2. In the Administration Panel, under Task Administration, click Task Configuration. The Task Configuration page appears in the right pane.

  3. In the Task Configuration page, select the Data Driven page.

  4. In the Tasks to be configured pane, select a task.

    The right panel refreshes in edit mode.

  5. Do any of the following:

    • Add

    • Update

    • Delete

    • Change assertions (which depend on the type of list builder for which the rule has been configured)

    • Add variables

  6. When you have finished making your changes, click Apply.

    The changes are saved to the rule definitions in the rules dictionary.

For more information about editing tasks see Oracle Fusion Middleware Modeling and Implementation Guide for Oracle Business Process Management.

9.2.3.2.1 How to Add a Variable

To add a variable:

  1. In the Data Driven page, click Add variable.

    The Add Variable window appears.

  2. Enter a name for the variable.

  3. Click the down arrow to select a variable type from the list.

    The types displayed in the list correspond to those that are available in the rule dictionary (built-in and others that have been registered).

  4. Enter a value.

  5. Click OK.

    The variable can now be used to define conditions.

9.2.3.2.2 How to Define Conditions

You can set the left and right sides of a condition by selecting operands from condition browsers. Clicking the magnifying glass icon displays the browsers.

The operator for comparing the operands of the condition will change based on the type of operand selected for the left side of the condition.

You also can define more complex conditions using the Expression Builder.

For more information, see the section "Creating ADF Data Binding EL Expressions" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Fusion Developer's Guide for Oracle Application Development Framework. See also the section "Creating EL Expressions" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Web User Interface Developer's Guide for Oracle Application Development Framework.

9.2.3.2.3 How to Define Assertions

You can specify an assertion by selecting the appropriate rule function from the list.

9.2.4 Using Evidence Search in Process Workspace

The evidence store service is used for digital signature storage and nonrepudiation of digitally signed human tasks.

To search the evidence store:

  1. In the Process Workspace toolbar in the upper right corner, click Administration. The Administration Areas panel appears in the left pane.

  2. In the Administration Areas panel, under Task Administration, select Evidence Search. The Evidence Search page appears in the right pane, as shown in Figure 9-13.

    Figure 9-13 Searching the Evidence Store

    Description of this graphic follows
    Description of "Figure 9-13 Searching the Evidence Store"

  3. Fill in the search fields, then click Search Evidence Store.

For information about the evidence store for digital signatures, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite.

9.2.5 Managing Exceptions in Process Workspace

Under certain circumstances—for example, an employee who has left the company being assigned to a task—an exception can occur. When an exception occurs, the task gets put into an alerted state. The task then gets assigned to the error assignee or, if one is not specified, to the administrator.

For information about configuring the error assignee, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Developer's Guide for Oracle SOA Suite.

There are other scenarios in which an exception can happen.

9.3 Using the User Metadata Migration Utility

The user metadata migration utility, hwfMigrator, is a tool that automates the process of migrating workflow user-configurable data from one Service Integration server to another by executing a shell script. The tool also includes a property file that contains key-value pairs and all the input parameters required to perform the migration operation. You customize the property file and then perform the migration by executing the shell script.

For information about using the User Metadata Migration Utility, see Oracle Fusion Middleware Modeling and Implementation Guide for Oracle Business Process Management.

For information about moving Oracle BPM from a test site to a production site, see Oracle Application Server Administrator's Guide.
