Hi Ana,

IFAIK, right now there is no forge component which provides this feature to manage business workflows without changin any thing in code. And as per my understanding this can be do done using process alone. 

If you want something like this than it should be developed using custom actions with support of processes & timers.

Hi.


Thanks. Just another question, If I use this component after I should change code to reflect the actions in the code. Am I correct?


Thanks in advance

Hi Ana,

There is something new in OutSystems but not generally available that promises to simplify and speed up development of workflows in OutSystems.

For more info see

Hi Yogesh,

The  workflow-manager component seems like a access management like grant and revoke the roles based on the predefined state and not to create work flow dynamically without changing the code.

@Anna - Just wanted to understand what do you mean by manage workflow ? 

Is your intention to create new workflow from the screen or managing the existing workflow ? 

Outsystems Business Process Technology allow you create Process which includes different step of your business process and run asynchronously . Also to make a new process you need to do it through Service Studio which involves code changes and publishing of the module , however once the Process is created you can manage it from a screen to set input\output of the process , skip a activity of the process , execute , pause or terminate it as required.

Hi,


What I meant is, if there is a component to add / remove steps and add / change / remove settings within each step of a business workflow and the code is automatically generated by adding these changes to the business workflow without me having to change code.


Thanks in advance

Hi Ana and everyone,

Thank you for interest and contribution in this thread.  

@Ana, Although and for sure not able to contribute to the use case you were willing to address in March, let me complement this thread with 2 recent OutSystems launches that i believe will help you in new/future business processes and case management scenarios:

  • One is the Workflow Builder that allows business experts, non developers to build end-to-end business process workflow applications, on top of the OutSystems platform. You can find details about this tool here.  In a nutshell, the Workflow Builder allows you to have a ready-to-use case management application, with no code: From case creation, case status definition and workflow design til the end user experience, applications screens, for the case submitter and case operator/handler.


  • Additionally we launched the Case Management framework, built as well on top of the Business process technology core of the platform. This Framework enhances the BPT and provides pre-built process functions needed to implement custom-fit business process and case management solutions. Some of available functions are setup of SLA per case and task, define working calendars, delegation, all typical tasks operation (assign reassign , takeover) the ability to create sub cases. Take a look here for a deep dive in the framework . You can find the Case Management framework is available in forge 

My best regards

Hi,


So far as I know, at least workflow builder is not available for personal accounts (just enterprise).

I believe, like in everything else, for us to practice and learn the best way to work with that and be prepared to future scenarios, that would be awesome to have that feature available for personal accounts too.

Is that in your scope or is something that will not be available?


Thanks!
