Workflow Participant List in WebCenter Sites

73081940-1-617x250.png

When you are using step workflows you must define the method to assign the participants in each step. To achieve this, you have three options:

  1. Choose assignees when step is taken (manually)
  2. Assign to Everyone (based on roles)
  3. Assign from list of participants

If the last option is used, the list of participants is taken from the Start Menu List. If new participants are added to the Start Menu list, new assets will have the new list, but old assets will keep the list that was initially available when the assets were created.

The old assets will be able to update the participants with the following customisation in the code /OpenMarket/Xcelerate/Actions/SetStatusPost.xml

<!-- Beginning of customisation -- The participants will be taken from the start menu list -->
      <!--The site is obtained from session variable.-->    
      <WorkflowAsset.Load ASSETTYPE="Variables.AssetType" ID="Variables.id" OBJVARNAME="workflowasset" />    
   
      <SETVAR NAME="site" VALUE="SessionVariables.pubid"/>
