Invoking long lived process by watched folder?

Yan_Kliaver

Hi,

I have to build a long lived process that starts when xml data is dropped into a folder.

Once the xml is received it should be populated in the form and assigned as a task in Process Management.

Long lived process should be defined  with a task manager end point but when using watched folder to invoke process it is a watched folder..

How can I define such a process?

Thanks, Yan

Hi Yan,

actually, the process doesn't need to have a task manager end point. The task manager end point is only used if you want users to start the process from Workspace.

For your process, use a watched folder end point. In the process, the first step is an Assing Task operation that uses the xml data that you dropped in the watched folder (assuming the xml is in the correct structure for the form you are using).
