Workflow Different Roles, Types of notifications, Events and Workflows Best Practices | Print |  E-mail
Written by Anil Passi   
Sunday, 13 January 2008

A newbie to Oracle Apps might think that a workflow role is nothing but FND_USER itself.
Also being a started, you might think there are merely two different notification types.
In reality though, a workflow role can be any entity with which notification engine can communicate and take responses from.
Also, there are at least six different types of notifications that can be developed using Oracle Workflows.

In this presentation, you will see
            1. Different types of Workflow roles and their relation to business Entities
            2. Different possible type of Workflow Notifications
            3. Step by step instruction for creating pl/sql document type notifications
            4. Step by step instructions for creating OA Framework type notification
            5. Advantages of OA Framework based notification messages
            6. Best practices for Oracle Workflows
            7. Concept and example of Business Events in Oracle Workflows

Please click here to find the presentation that explains the above listed topics.
Different_Types_of_Roles_And_Notifications

 

Just a note for reference:-
Another point worth making here is that, Roles aren’t merely a mechanism to create recipients of Notifications.
Oracle is moving towards using ROLES to define security.
In fact, in Fusion Apps, there may not be any such thing called a responsibility.

Hi Anil,
Nice article. I am using document type attribute to get the data from table in tabular format. This is working fine. Now i want to display two text fields as last two columns and these should be editable. Also there should be button ( either at the end of the table or the response buttom in the response section) which when clicked should save the modified data into the table.

Can this be achieved ?

Pl. help

Hi Nikhilesh,

Sure this can be achieved using OA Framework based notification.

Thanks,

Hi Anil,

I am a regular reader of your articles on WF. I really apreciate your work.
I am new to oracle WF and currently working on a customization of OM wF.
I have a query in one design where I need to check if all the line status is "Ready for submmital" then I have to set the header status to "REady for submittal". "Ready for submittal" is the custom status for which I will be defining a lookup type and code. I was wondering If there is any OM API which I can use to set the Header Status of the order.
If you have any suggestion on the design then please kindly reply.

Regards,
Maddy

Hi Anil,

If through, OA frame work does it needs another page/form to open

Hi Nikhilesh

Other way is to make two WF Attributes, one for each field.
These attributes when attached to WD Message will be of type respond.

Hence, user will be able to enter values into these fields.
When user responds, you can capture and validate entered values via post-notification pl/sql

Thanks

Hi Anil,

Can we hide response type attribute? it should be displayed when required. (Scinario: created 3 response attrib for 3 lines now if there are only 2 lines it should display 2 response attrib).

Cheers,
Advait...

Hi Advait

You can not dynamically hide those.

However a workaround would be that, you can haev a switch node in WF prior notification. In this, you check the number of lines, and based upon that you branch to different notifications that have different set of attributes attached.
This workaround is not ideal though, which is why OA Fwk option is flexible.


Thanks,
Anil Passi

Hi Anil,

I have been reading your notes and training meterial for the past 3 weeks and lots of information. I need help from you. Could you please send one customised wft file from HRMS module along with pl/sql code? I am kind of new to WF and need your help. Specially, if employee gets a raise / terminate / transfer, I have to notify to the immediate manager, but also manager to immediate manager. 2 level of approval needed. I think in Oracle, we get one level of approval. Please help me. Thanks, Ranga

Remove submit button in a "for your information" notification NtfReviewRN
written by Mustapha Fassihi , March 11, 2008
Hi Anil,
I'd like use this standard region from Workflow call in 'for your information' notification:
oracle/apps/per/selfservice/review/webui/NtfReviewRN
I'd like create a specific region cggv/oracle/apps/per/selfservice/review/webui/NtfReviewRN
with this controller: CGGV/oracle/apps/per/selfservice/review/webui/NtfReviewCO.
My aim is to hide one button: the submit button.
I'd like replace this button(Submit button)by an other button(Ok button).
I don't know where to find the solution : in OAF region,controller or workflow?
Thank you for your help.
Regards
Mustapha
