Jarvis Pizzeria: Creating a Custom Tasklist for PCS

So within Process Cloud Service (PCS) we have already shown the tasklist a couple of times. This is the default tasklist that comes with the product. You can use the left hand side filters and handle the actions in the tasks within the task screens.

However, as with all of the ‘one-size-fits-all’ solutions, the tasklist might not be exactly what you need for your organisation or use-case. In this case it is good to know, that you can create your own custom tasklist.

This compares to what we see at customers using BPM Suite on premises. We use a lot of features from BPM, but usually not the Worklist/Workspace that comes out of the box with BPM. Since there is an SOAP API to call your tasks, it is quite easy to talk to this API and create your custom tasklist in the on-premises world.

For PCS, we do not have SOAP APIs, but we do have REST APIs, if there is any need to create a custom tasklist, you can use these APIs to; Start an application, query for tasks, query for task details, handle the payload or outcome and much more.

Humantask Assignment: Assignment by Names And Expressions

This blog post is part of a series of posts about humantask assignment. You can find the starting point of this series by following the next link.

In BPEL it is not possible to assign a task to a lane participant. The most simple assignment in BPEL is by Names and Expressions. In this post I will show this kind of assignment for both a BPEL and a BPMN process. In fact there is no difference between BPEL and BPMN. In this example I created a composite with a BPM component and a BPEL component. Both the BPEL process and the BPM process only contain a humantask. Actually it is the same humantask as show in the picture below.

Humantask Assignment: sequential participants (four-eyes principle & sticky user)

This blog post is part of a blog post serie about humantask assignment. You can find the starting point of this series by following the next link.

If you look at the example in Humantask Assignment: not the same lane participant as previous task (four-eyes principle) you see two sequential humantasks. If these humantasks are both connected with the same task form there might be another method available to model the four-eyes principle. Namely: assigning participants sequentially to the same humantask. This means that there will be only one humantask in the process model.
