Custom Activity Templates xCelerator


Activity Templates allow process designers to configure activities for use in their process, implementing business requirements without writing custom code. This xCelerator introduces 13 new activity templates to the out-of-the-box set:


  1. Advanced XML Transform Enables a process to request an XSLT transformation of an XML package


  2. Copy Object Copies a document or folder structure and its contents to a case location


  3. Deep Export Recursively exports a folder structure from the repository to the file system


  4. Is Document Checked In? Ensures that a task is not left checked out unintentionally


  5. Generate Number Generates unique, sequential numbers in a wide variety of formats


  6. Post Event to Object Posts an event to a workflow instance or object.


  7. Alter ACL Grants or revokes access either to an individual object or to an ACL.


  8. Create Version Creates a new version of an object


  9. Alter Group Creates, deletes or updates the group membership


  10. Create Audit Event Adds custom events to the audit trail


  11. Create Process Summary Summarize the complete workflow information, all process variable values, and SDT values into an XML document


  12. Create Audit Summary Saves the full audit trail (if enabled) of a document or object as an XML document


  13. Transform XML to PDF Transforms an XML document to a PDF file using an XSL-FO stylesheet
