Getting the most out of your BPM Task Controls
June 02, 2016
Recently, two of our Rubicon Red consultants, Arun Pareek, and Ganesh Kumar Krishnan, were working on a client project using Oracle BPM Suite, and faced an important requirement to audit all user actions on workflow tasks, to comply with organizational auditing policies.
In Oracle BPM, Task Approval controls are available at both the individual Task Level as well as the Workspace. At a Task Level, there is a mechanism to suppress approval controls, but with 5-10 tasks and thousands of task instances in a single application, this was not an elegant approach. Therefore, in developing the auditing solution, the team identified a nifty way to suppress BPM task approvals at the Workspace level.
The final solution provides a nice, clean, configuration-based approach that applies to all tasks in the BPM Workspace and can be turned on or off by an administrator with ease. It also simplifies the testing effort, and if there are further changes there is no need to redeploy the BPM application.
Want the nitty gritty on two options to suppress approval controls in Oracle BPM, and the pro’s and con’s of each? Check out the blog post here – leave us a comment to let us know what you think.
