Upload a process directly to the Workflow Server for execution without using BPM Studio. The application name is the top level process that is uploaded with all spaces removed.
- Right-click the top level process for the Bar file and select Upload to EPC Workflow engine.
The process is uploaded seamlessly to the Workflow Server. Epcadmin is the owner of the process as the EPC uses this account to upload to the iBPM Console. This can be changed in the IBPM Console after upload.
Conditions for the process to be exported to a Bar file:
- The Bar file name is the same as the top level process that was exported. An XPDL of the top process and each sub-process is created.
- The process and sub-processes must be checked-in.
- The process and sub-processes must not contain any special characters and must be limited to 64 characters.
- The attributes assigned to the E-form within the exported process must not contain special characters or be larger than 64 characters.
- All flow objects (gateway (including type), start event (no types), intermediate events (message or timer), end event (none type), task, links, coordinates of shapes on map) are included in the XPDL.
- The export must not contain more than one start event or any references.
- Performers of tasks are exported, but only the first performer which is a role (RACI takes the first role with that is Responsible). All performers which are resources are ignored.
- Owners of processes are exported, but o the first owner which is a role (RACI takes the first role with that is Responsible). All performers which are resources are ignored.
- All Meta Data associated with the e-Forms assigned to Tasks in the processes are exported:
None and Binary attribute types are not supported in Interstage.
Once the Bar file is generated, it is uploaded to the IBPM Console.
Conditions for the Bar file to be uploaded on IBPM Console:
- The IBPM Server must be online.
- If the application already exists, it must be in either offline or initial states.
- If the application already exists and is offline then a new version of the process definitions will be created.
- If a new top level process is being uploaded and it shares the name of a previously uploaded process, it will overwrite the previously uploaded process.
- If a top level process contains sub-processes that are named the same as other uploaded processes, the upload will fail.
If conditions are met, the process is uploaded seamlessly to the Workflow Server. Epcadmin is the owner of the process as the EPC uses this account to upload to the IBPM Console. This can be changed in the IBPM Console after upload. The application ID will be the same as the top level process uploaded. If there are spaces in the name then they will be replaced with underscores.
