When I remove the start point the process still fails. It seem to be when I add an event to a user block that causes the issue. I simply want to call an activity that writes to a log when the task is claimed.
To answer your other questions, I am using a xpd and it is specified in a variable.
Thanks for your help.
" It seem to be when I add an event to a user block that causes the issue."
What do you mean by that? Are you trying to add an event catch to an actual user step.
I don't think you want to do that. What are you trying to do?
What I want to do is use an activity to write to a log when a task is claimed from a group. I would like to have the name of who claimed the task but at this point that is just for bonus points.
I have an activity that will write to my log (we use copies of this on several other steps). I want to use that activity to write a message to our log when a task is claimed. We create our reports and assign them to a group. I want to use our log writer activity when the report is claimed from that group. Here are a few of the things I have tried:
I placed an event on the corner of the user group
I wired this to a throw event thinking the startpoint process would catch it and write to the log but the process died
I wired this to the activity that writes to our log but the process died
I wired this to the activity that writes to our log and then back to the user but that caused issues
I placed a throw event on the process and did not link it to anything but it never fired
I placed an activity on the process and placed an even in the corner thinking it would catch the task claimed event but it didn't
Thank you for your help,
The predefined events such as TaskCreated, TaskClaimed, TaskCompleted etc are always thrown automatically.
Which means, you need not drag those events into the corners of User activity.
It is just a matter of receiving those event (through event start points) by applying appropriate filters.
For a quick test,
Create a simple (short-lived) process and add a event start point (say TaskCreated).
Enable process recording.
Initiate any process which has an user activity.
You must be able to see the process recording if a task is assign to a user.
I faced Template Not Found exception. After a long research, I scraped my database and re-initialized. Because its just a TEST environment.
Thanks $Nith$, I got that to work. Sorry for the delayed response, I took a fews days vacation.
I am now trying to pass data, specifially the reportName and the user that claimed it. I am just starting to look at that and have not search the help or forums yet.
