If business trip type is “to another region”, a human resource inspector receives task “make an official order”. The employee receives task “sign an order” and human resource inspector receives a task “receive a signature on the order” concurrently.

Note. If to click on the "Start process" menu option and then click on a business process name this business process graph can be seen along with some other information.

Upload a file

A short description:

In the start form of the process the user uploads a file. Then in the first task of this business process a user downloads the uploaded file.

  • The business process will start and a new task will appear on the Julius task list

WF-system Demo FU en pic2.png

  • Open the task. If you click the file name in the task form, you will trigger the file download.

  • Click "Task is done" to finish the process.

Execute Formula Demo

A short description:

This process is an example of ExecuteFormulaActionHandler handler. It's a universal ActionHanlder that is used to change business process variables values. This process is an example of ExecuteFormulaActionHandler usage. ExecuteFormulaActionHandler is a universal ActionHandler designed for mutation of business process variable values.

The business process graph:

WF-system Demo ExecuteFormula pic1.png

How to use demo-process:

  • Log in as a user who is a member of manager group (e.g. Julius)
  • Click on "Start process" menu item.
  • In the appeared table find a line with «Execute Formula Demo» business process and click on the process icon.
  • Then the ExecuteFormulaActionHandlers are executed one by one. They are placed into transitions to activity nodes and they perform calculations by given formulas. The calculation results are presented in the corresponding forms:

STATE 1:

WF-system Demo ExecuteFormula en pic1.png

Here the logical operations are carried on:

STATE 2:

WF-system Demo ExecuteFormula en pic2.png

STATE 3:

WF-system Demo ExecuteFormula en pic3.png

Operations on DateFormat

STATE 4:

WF-system Demo ExecuteFormula en pic4.png

STATE 5:

WF-system Demo ExecuteFormula en pic5.png

DateTimeFormat:

STATE 6:

WF-system Demo ExecuteFormula en pic6.png

STATE 7:

WF-system Demo ExecuteFormula en pic7.png


  • On the form 8 it is necessary to choose a file. An ExecuteFormulaActionHandler with the following configuration is called on transition to form 9:

file2 = file1

This means that the handler makes a copy of the uploaded file and the result can be seen on the form 9 where you can download both files.

STATE 8:

MainProcess with SubProcess

Any process many be included into other process as its subprocess. A subprocess can be independent (that means it can be run without parent processes) or dependent from its parent (that means it cannot exist without parent context). One and the same subprocess may be included into several different processes.

There's a subprocess element in graphical process designer to manage subprocess in the process graph. See Graphical Process Designer User Guide for details.

An example of MainProcess (left) and SubProcess (right) graphs:


WF-system Demo description ris27 2.jpg WF-system Demo description ris27 3.jpg


  • Login as user that is in manager group (e.g. Julius)
  • Click on "Start process" menu item
  • Find "MainProcess" process in the list and click the name of the process. The process will start.
  • On the "before subprocess" task form click "Task is done"

WF-system Demo SubProc en pic1.png

  • Find tasks that belong to the MainProcess instance in the task list. In fact these tasks belong to subprocess SubProcess, but in the "Process Definition" column you will see the name of the parent process. Do the subprocess tasks by opening them and clicking "Task is done" button.

WF-system Demo SubProc en pic2.png

WF-system Demo SubProc en pic3.png

Then do the last parent process task "after subprocess". The process will be over.

WF-system Demo SubProc en pic4.png

  • If you want to view the process properties, go to "Started processes". Open just finished MainProcess instance. On the process graph click on the subprocess state and the page with subprocess instance properties will appear.

# MultiInstanceProcess

When it's necessary to perform one and the same sequence of actions for each element value of a list in RunaWFE it's possible to use MultiInstance or MultiTaskState.


In this example MultiInstance is used. For the sequence of action a MultiInstance subprocess is created and in each main process instance there will be as many MultiInstance subprocess instances started as many elements in the variable of multiinstancelink.

See more details creating process with multisubprocess.

A client has several addresses. The order implies delivery to each of the client addresses. In addressArray variable there´s a list of client addresses. In the main process instance there will be as many subprocess instances created as addresses in the list. In each subprocess there will be a variable with one of the addresses.


An example of process graph (left) with MultiInstance element and MultiInstance subprocess (right):


WF-system Demo Multi en pic1 1.png

  • In order to start "MultiInstanceProcess" click on "Start process" menu item, find "MultiInstanceProcess" in the list and click on the process name.

WF-system Demo Multi en pic1.png

  • On the starting form type in the addresses of a client (the number of addresses equals the number of started MultiInstance subprocesses.

WF-system Demo Multi ru pic2 2.png

  • Go to the "Task list" and confirm the order.

WF-system Demo Multi en pic3.png

  • Just to see it with your own eyes go to the "Started processes" and see how many MultiInstanceSubProcess are started. Click on one of them and check out the address variable value in subprocess properties. Check out this value in another subprocess of this process instance.

WF-system Demo Multi en pic4 1.png


WF-system Demo Multi en pic5 1.png

  • Go to the "Task list" and form suborder for delivery in each subprocess.

The process finishes.
