The Process Designer provides a range of abilities to actively
engage in the creation of feeds and notifications. The following
actions are available:
2. Plugin feed action
This action responds to data group events or timer events.
First, select a data group whose events you would like to
respond to. Connect the plugin feed action to the event.
A data group context is not absolutely necessary at
this point. The action can be associated with all
data group event handlers. For the
subsequent primary key mapping, the value to be assigned can, for
example, be taken from the processing context, if no data group context
3. Text feed action
The text feed action makes it possible to create a customized feed.
This is useful when a feed cannot be assigned directly to a data group.
In this way, you can, for example, send automated system monitoring messages to
IT staff (e.g. disk space quota), notices about scheduled maintenance,
employees’ birthdays, etc.
4. System message action
This action does not generate a feed but rather a notification that is shown
in the additional control Share messages
or in the Notifications
portlet. This helps users stay up to date about an approval process, for example.
5. Create a group / Manage a group
With these process elements, you can use a process to create or manage a group, respectively.
