About Human Activity Tool
When designing the process flow (Collection of elements that graphically implement the behavior of a process. You can have flow control elements (Start, Decision, ..., End), activity elements, and you can invoke other processes. Elements in an process flow are linked through Connectors.) of your process (Implements a business process of your organization. A process behavior is defined by its process flow. A process can handle input and output parameters.), you can add work to be carried out by the end-user. This behavior is implemented through the Human Activity process activity, which you can drag onto your canvas from the Process Flow Toolbox.
The Human Activity allows you to specify and assign a work to be carried out by the end-users in your application. Once the process flow execution reaches a Human Activity the end-user or end-users are informed (in their Taskbox) of the work that has to be carried out. Then, one of them executes the activity and signals that it has been done in the Taskbox, and the Human Activity execution finishes and the process flow execution continues to the next process activity in the flow path.
A Human Activity can have input parameters, output parameters, and callback actions.
Assigning a Human Activity to the End-Users
If no configuration is done, the Human Activity is assigned to all end-users, that is, it is displayed in the Taskbox of each end-user until it is executed by one of them. However, to force the assignment of a Human Activity to a specific end-user, simply set the User property to the desired end-user. For advanced cases, you may set an expression that returns the user that handles the activity, using the expression editor.
Setting Conditions for the Entity Action
Once you select an Entity Action for the On Close property, a list of entity attributes is displayed for you to set the condition for which the human activity is closed (end its execution). The listed attributes are the primary key and reference attributes.
You may add security to your Human Activities to be sure that only authorized end-users can execute the activity, which is especially useful for critical or high responsibility activities. For this, simply check the roles allowed to execute the Human Activity. Learn more about security.
Using Human Activity References
Service Studio provides you with mechanisms to access Human Activity process activities among eSpaces. You can expose your Human Activity process activities to other eSpaces or use Human Activity process activities defined in another eSpace.
