Issue Creation Design and Implementation

[bok-callout]For a walk-through the steps of the workflow and its configuration, we refer to Issue Creation Walk-Through.[/bok-callout]


Step 1: Create a new Activiti project and/or Activiti diagram

The creation of a new Activiti project/diagram is explained in the section on Setting Up Your Workflow Design Workbench

Step 2: Change the Identifier, Name and Description of the Process

We refer to the section Designing Your First Workflow From Scratch, subsection “Change the Identifier, Name and Description of the Process” for an explanation on how  to change the identifier, name and description. For this case, name the workflow (e.g., the default would be “Issue Creation”) and give it an identifier (e.g., the default name would be “issueCreation”). 

Step 3: Create a Pool and Lanes

We refer to the section Designing Your First Workflow From Scratch, subsection “Defining a Pool and Lanes” for an explanation on how  to change the identifier, name and description.

Pool >  Properties Tab > Process 

Property Value Description
id issueCreation The Id of the workflow definition. This must be unique in Collibra
Name Cancel Process The default workflow label (description) in Collibra.

This process takes care of creating new issues and placing them in the correct responsible community. Any user can start this workflow and needs to fill in a list of required and optional parameters for the issue to be created.

This information is shown to the user when hovering over a workflow start button.

Step 4: Create a Start and End Event

Set the properties for the Start Event:

Start Event > Properties Tab > Main Config

Configuration Variables:

Form values Description
subject Title string   true true true   a text box to enter the title of the issue
description Description textarea   true true true   A text area to describe the issue
priority Priority enum Normal false true true Blocking:Blocking;Crititcal:Critical;Urgent:Urgent;Normal:Normal;Minor:Minor a combo box to rate the issue
responsibleCommunity Responsible Community community ${communityComponent.getCommunityByUri(‘‘).getId()} false true true defaultFromResource:true The community of the issue. Is auto-populated by the current community
relations Relevant Assets term multiValue:true;conceptType;0000000-0000-0000-0000-000000031000 false true true

You can only pick from this list.
submit Create Issue button false false true true   The submit Button

relations   ${relations} A CSV of related asset id’s to this issue
classifications   ${classifications} A CSV of issue classifications
requester   ${requester} The user name of the requester creating the issue
responsibleCommunity   ${responsibleCommunity} The responsible community for this issue

Expressions come from the the start form variables
