|Notifications and Approvals Pattern Group||Version 188.8.131.52|
Workflow tasks are those routed and tracked to completion by the system. Workflow tasks that require human intervention are directed through the appropriate users in the form of approvals, requests for action, and information only. Workflow can also trigger notifications to route tasks to the user through external channels, such as email.
This pattern set addresses how users access workflow tasks and notifications in Oracle Fusion, the page structure and components to be used in task and notification detail pages, and the base components that can be embedded in other contexts when appropriate. An important goal of this pattern set is to ensure consistency across the Oracle Fusion Applications by providing a common page structure to be followed by all teams when designing and developing their task and notification pages.
|Patterns Contained in This Group|
|Workflow Task Page Details Pattern Group: Approvals, Request for Action and Information Only||
Workflow tasks that require human intervention are presented to the user in a task details page. This pattern set describes the page structure to be followed when designing approval, request for action, and information only task detail pages.
|Worklist Tables Pattern Set||
Worklist tables are be used in dashboards and work areas to display a list of workflow tasks relevant to a particular user. This pattern set describes the available options.
This pattern describes two components that support tabular and graphical views. The action history displays the full list of participants, including those who have already taken action, as well as those participants who are still in the queue. The tabular view provides optional editing features based on user privileges. The participant list is a version of the action history list that is used to display who the task will be routed to before the task is initiated. The participant list also includes editing features based on user privileges.
|Workflow Task Actions||This pattern describes the different types of workflow task actions and how they are presented to the user in task detail pages and worklist tables.|
|Email Notifications||This pattern describes how email notifications are automatically generated from the online version of the task detail pages (approvals, request for action, and information only).|
There are nine worklist servers in Oracle Fusion, one per domain. The Worklist servers appear in a dialog box accessible through the Servers option from the View menu of the federated Worklist on the Oracle Fusion Applications Home page. The dialog box provides links to launch the BPM Worklist application for the corresponding server. Note that the server configuration may vary by customer implementation. Here are the worklist servers:
Human tasks are presented to the user by leveraging the Worklist table component and the BPM Worklist application provided by the Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) team.
