BAM Queries

In my previous two blogs, I have made a start with the study of the BAM components. I have started with the Data Objects (BAM Data Objecten, BAM Calculated Fields). In this post I will talk about Queries.

BAM Project Requirements

In recent posts I treated BAM Data Objecten and BAM Calculated Fields. I am now at the point to start with a so called BAM project. But before I will do that, first something else.

The problem of last week (BAM Projects get corrupted) has given me extra time to think about the rest of the blog series. In doing so, I came to the conclusion that I had not yet taken the functional requirements as a subject. But without these requirements the upcoming blogs are hard to follow, so in this post I first will mention the functional requirements, from a technical point of view (and briefly describe them). I have translated a drawn dashboard image into the following requirements.

  1. Click through to humantask. Link to a rule action. Add ability to click through to the related humantask, to view it or act on it as assigned rep.
  2. Change View type at runtime. Possibility to switch from view of e.g. a line chart to a bar chart or a list view.
  3. Click through to case details via the used hierarchical organization structure (Judicial System, Department, Team and Employee).
  4. Summary of tasks. Showing number of open tasks, newly opened tasks and recently closed tasks. Increase/decrease in percentage of number of tasks.
  5. Starting a related system. Link to a view action. E.g. start the worklist application or a specific website.
  6. Filter of displayed data in multiple views at once. E.g. all views in which a department is shown, and where it is possible to filter on the department, display information of the same department(s).
  7. Showing tasks and deadline’s. Indicate how many urgent tasks there are on the basis of urgency.
  8. Change parameters at runtime such as the degree of urgency. Urgency is the number of days for due before it is urgent.
  9. Updating views without pressing the refresh button. Use active data so that the view is dynamically updated.
  10. Dynamic displaying images. Depending on the selected data a different picture is shown.
