Process Timers – Controlling the time in which your process executes by Jose Rodrigues

clip_image002

Following up a series of questions around setting timers in the Oracle Community forums, I decided to write this article to try and guide their use and how these can be used to control process execution.

Let’s start!

The Use Case

We’ll begin by setting up the scenario in which we’ll have to control our process flow.

Imagine that you want to have a part of your process that executes immediately if the current time is between 08:00am and 04:00pm (16:00 hours for us Europeans), or wait until 08:00am if it’s outside that interval.

It’s frequent to have some kind of control in parts of the processes, for instance when you want to send SMS to your customers. You certainly don’t want to do it at 03:00am.

How will we make this?

We should use a Catch Timer event, of course, and XPATH’s DateTime functions to check the current time and to set the timer to way for next morning’s 08:00.

The Catch Timer event has several ways to be configured (triggered at specific dates and times, on a specific schedule – every day at 10:28:00 (repeatable), or in a time cycle – every 2 minutes), but we’ll focus on the one where we configure the timer to wait for a specific time and date. More on the others perhaps in another article.

We’ll illustrate the use of timers with an example process. You can, of course, adapt it to your needs.

Defining the execution conditions

So you start by defining a gateway that will split the execution between:

  • Immediate
  • Wait for 08:00am
    • This will have to be split into prior to midnight and after midnight. but for now, we’ll consider the scenario of only two options.

So, you set the expression on the conditional flow that will do the immediate execution, leaving the condition that must wait for 08:00 as the unconditional (default) branch.

The expression should be something like this: Read the complete article here.

In drei Schritten zur Onlinehypothek – Hypothekar-Antrags-Prozess auf der Cloud Prozessplattform von Oracle (Oracle PCS) by Richard Schaller

imageIn drei Schritten erstellen wir einen einfachen Hypothekar-Antrags-Prozess auf der Cloud Prozessplattform von Oracle (Oracle PCS). Der Prozess kann direkt nach Erstellung auf dem Handy, Tablet oder Laptop genutzt werden.

Im letzten Teil der Blog-Serie wie die Prozessautomatisierung den Digitalisierungs-Initiativen zum Erfolg verhilft, setzen wir beispielhaft einen einfachen Hypothekar-Antrags-Prozess in drei Schritten um. Wir verwenden dazu die Cloud-Prozessplattform von Oracle.

Schritt 1: Formular erstellen

Das zentrale Element ist ein Formular, das die geschäftlichen Daten beinhaltet. Der Workflow (Prozess) verwendet das Formular vom Anfang bis zum Ende. Der Nutzer startet den Prozess indem er das Formular ausfüllt, Dokumente hinzufügt und versendet. Im Verlauf des Workflows wird das Formular vom Kunden und von Sachbearbeitern fortlaufend ergänzt. Der Arbeitsfluss wird von der Cloud-Plattform gesteuert.

Die Erstellung von Formularen ist intuitiv. Die einzelnen Elemente können bequem mittels «Drag und Drop» angeordnet werden. Die nachfolgende Abbildung zeigt die verfügbaren Formular-Elemente der Oracle Process Cloud (PCS).

Die Formular-Elemente werden ohne Programmierung individuell angepasst. Im Vordergrund steht die Konfiguration von Name, Tipp und Eingabeformat (Text, Datum, E-Mail, Zahl, Auswahl, etc.). Dank der Unterstützung für Mehrsprachigkeit wird das Formular dem Benutzer in seiner Sprache dargestellt. Die nachfolgende Abbildung zeigt ein mögliches Formular.

Schritt 2: Hypothekar-Antrags-Prozess konfigurieren

Der Prozess ist ein sogenannter Antragsprozess. Wir wählen deshalb die dafür vorbereitete Vorlage aus. Oracle PCS stellt eine Reihe von Prozess-/Workflow-Vorlagen zur Verfügung.

Oracle PCS erstellt einen einfachen Antragsprozess. Dieser sieht zu Beginn wie folgt aus:

Nun geht es darum, den einfachen Prozess an die eigenen Bedürfnisse anzupassen. In unserem Fall sind folgende Anpassungen erforderlich:

  • Das Formular aus Schritt 1 den einzelnen Prozessschritten (grüne Boxen) zuweisen
  • Dem Antragsprozess konkrete Benutzergruppen (Antragsteller, Sachbearbeiter, Manager) zuweisen.

Process Cloud Services 16.2.1 available

clip_image002ANNOUNCING…Oracle Process Cloud Service

16.2.1 Release

We are pleased to announce the availability of the 16.2.1 release of Process Cloud Service (PCS)

What's New!

  • Document Workflow Process Apps
  • Business Indicators and Analytics Dashboard
  • REST Service Connectors
  • New Process Composer
  • New Data Association and Transformation Editor
  • Federated SSO
  • OAuth Authentication for REST API

Document Workflow Process Apps

Oracle Process Cloud Service introduces a new Document Start activity to create Document Workflow Process Applications specifically designed to process documents and document folders from Documents Cloud Service. Documents and folders used to initiate a Document Workflow Process Application are automatically associated to the process, providing participants easy access to the content within the context of their assigned tasks. The introduction of first class Document Workflow capabilities makes it easy to create processes to manage document review and approval, transactional document management and light weight case management use cases. 

Business Indicators and Analytics Dashboard

Business indicators enable you to capture and display business metrics specific to your applications. Use the Business Analytics Dashboard to plot and view charts, graphs and reports for business metrics captured as business indicators. Create charts that display business indicator values. In Composer, developers create business indicators for data objects whose metrics they want to capture and display as X axis, Y axis, and filter values. In Workspace, you select business or system indicators to plot them in charts, graphs and reports.

REST Service Connectors

Use the new REST Service Connector to invoke RESTful services directly from within a process flow. The Service Activity has been enhanced to support both SOAP and REST Service Connectors, providing a familiar approach to interacting with external data sources and systems. Using the REST Service Connector you can easily define the resources, operations and payloads needed to connect to a REST service, regardless of the description language used to define the service.

New Process Composer

The new Process Composer has a more flexible and intuitive user Interface that can now be accessed through mobile tablets. The BPMN palette is easier to navigate. The process Activities are easier to access. And improved process flow layout makes it easier to create professional and organized looking process maps. Select an Activity to choose from a contextual set of actions and properties to configure the Activity behavior. Changing process sequence is more intuitive and provides contextual instructions on sequence flow alternatives.

New Data Association and Transformation Editor

The new Data Association editor greatly simplifies the task of mapping data between process Data Objects and Activities. Separate Input and Output associations allow for a more natural experience that makes it easy to map and review associations. Simply drag-and-drop Data Objects and Activity Payloads or use the intelligent auto-complete data entry. Even create new Data Objects right in the editor. Define reusable Transformations to associate different data types or reduce complex mappings. Define them once and apply wherever they’re needed in the application.

Federated SSO

Oracle Process Cloud Service now supports federated single sign-on (SSO) and authentication. Users who enter their valid credentials are authenticated through the their identity provider such as Oracle Identity Federation (OIF) or Active Directory Federation Services (ADFS) using the Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) protocol, and redirected to the Oracle Process Cloud Service Workspace or Composer home page.

OAuth Authentication for REST API

Oracle Process Cloud Service now accepts OAuth tokens as an alternative to basic authentication for our REST APIs

Process Analytics with Oracle BPM Suite 12c and BAM – slides from OGh session for SIG SOA & BPM by Lucas Jellema

clip_image002Business Processes implemented in BPEL and BPM(N) and running on Oracle BPM Suite 12c or SOA Suite 12c have to fulfill a business purpose and as such must meet business requirements – both functionally and non-functionally. SLAs for throughput, response time, quality are usually associated with these processes and we typically also would like insight in the number of process executions (per group) and the paths taken through our processes.

This presentation introduces process analytics in both BPEL and BPM processes in Oracle SOA Suite and BPM Suite 12c. It explains how to configure out of the box generic analytics and process specific business indicators. The presentation than introduces BAM 12c. It demonstrates the out of the box process analytics reports and dashboards. Then it explains how to create custom reports on the unified process analytics star schema or on custom tables. Finally the presentation goes into real-time monitoring in BAM using JMS and enterprise message resources in combination with the event processing templates in BAM. Read the complete article here.

Comparing a brand new Oracle Process Cloud Service (PCS) with traditional on-premise Oracle BPM Suite by Lukasz Romaszewski

clip_image002As you may have heard, Oracle is quickly extending its middleware stack to the public cloud platform, by implementing there, one by one, every possible piece of technology from its portfolio. One of the most successful and powerful component of the traditional Fusion Middleware stack is Oracle BPM, which has been widely adopted in many organizations and companies to drive down the costs and increase agility and business control over all of the business processes in place. No surprise that BPM is one of the first technology to become available in the cloud, in the form of Process Cloud Services. In this blog post I would like to take you in the quick tour over PCS, how it looks like, and most important thing - what are the differences between the traditional on-premise version and the new cloudify BPM.

Just to make things clear - I have based all my comparisons on some early beta version of PCS, which may look and behave differently from the final GA version.

Similar to all other PaaS components, PCS is totally web based and there is no such thing as IDE/JDeveloper tool to install and run on the local environment. Which of course clearly puts this product into the business toolbox, rather than developer/IT one. The very first thing which you notice once you open your instance of PCS is the new Alta look&feel, consistent with every other cloud product made by Oracle:

Once you log in, you will end up at the cloud version of old, good BPM Composer's starting page, with some more or less visible changes in the layout and names of particular modules: Read the complete part 1 here and part 2 here.
