The FYI Task in Oracle BPM 12c can be used to notify a task recipient by displaying a task on the BPM worklist without holding up the business process, it just continues to the next activity in the process flow. But for the task to go away, it has to be specifically dismissed by the task recipient by clicking on the “Dismiss” button under the Actions menu.
But what if we wanted these tasks to go away automatically or be auto-dismissed by the system? To Demonstrate this we created a simple BPM process that contains an FYI Task and a second task.
The human tasks are assigned to swim lane roles “FYIRole” and “ReviewerRole”. After deploying this BPM process, we startup an instance using the Test feature in Enterprise Manager to invoke the message start.
When we startup the process instance, we can login as a member of the “FYIRole” to see that the task exists in the Swim Lane role inbox. Read the complete article here.
