Jarvis Pizzeria: Custom Reports & Dashboards

In our previous blog we showed the out of the box functionality of Dashboard & Reporting. Next to the default dashboards, you can also create your own custom dashboards. However, before we can create dashboards on this, we need to set up some indicators within our application. In the composer we have to go to the tab Indicators.

There are three types of indicators that you can create here:

  • A Dimension represents the grouping on the X axis,
  • A Measure will be the value of the Y Axis.
  • An Attribute, in turn, will act as a filter.

Jarvis Pizzeria: Markers and Conditions

In this post we do a deep dive into the fundamentals of markers and conditions. But first one step back, what are markers and conditions and what do they have to do with each other?

For Dynamic Processes we recognize the following markers:

  • Repeatable: controls whether a stage, activity or milestone is repeatable.
  • Auto Complete: controls the completion of a stage instance.
  • Manually Activated: controls the activation of a stage or activity instance.
  • Required: controls whether a stage, activity or milestone is required.

Next we have the following conditions:

  • Activation: additional entry criteria for a stage.
  • Enablement: additional entry criteria for a activity.
  • Termination: additional exit criteria for a stage or activity.
  • Completion: addition exit criteria for a milestone.

Jarvis Pizzeria: The Mobile app

PCS also comes with a mobile app for the end users. It’s available for iOS and Android devices (search for ‘Oracle Process Mobile’ in the PlayStore or the AppStore) . The app provides access to tasks in both connected and disconnected mode.

Compared to the browser features, there are a few differences. These are listed in the table below (this table comes directly from the oracle documentation).

But let’s just have a look at how the app works. We have installed the app on an iPad 2017 and a Samsung Galaxy S8 phone. Continue reading

My first 100 blogs listed

This blog is a very special one for me. It is the hundredth since I started the MyFMW blog in December 2010. In 7 years and a view months writing 100 blogs brings an average of 1.14 per month. Of the 100, however, there were 43 in 2017, and the last 9 (including this one) is from 2018. So the average does not say that much.

The hundredth blog is a moment for me to look back on the past 7 years as a ‘blogger’. A lot has changed in those years. For many, blogging has now been replaced by vlogging. I also made a single attempt last year, but I did not like it that very much. But who knows, there will be a renewed attempt in 2018.

Also a question that I want to answer for myself: why do I actually blog?
I do not immediately have the illusion that my blog is extremely popular, so I do not have to do it for an audience. It will probably bring some recognition within the community, but that is what it is. But what then is the reason that I continue with it … ???
That is actually very simple. I really love learning new things, finding out how something works, exploring the limits of the possibilities, and so on. By writing down my findings, I do not forget them, and by setting goals I want to achieve, I remain motivated to continue during the tough moments. Conclusion is actually that I am just very selfish by writing for myself.

This has been the case for years, but strangely enough that has been changing lately. I am not just concerned anymore that I want to record my findings so that I do not forget them. I would also like to record a beating story from beginning to end and not just write standalone pieces. This is reflected in my BAM and PCS blogs. Although I do not know if it will ever come of it, but in line of this development I do not exclude that I will write a book someday.

Looking back
