Re: How can I filter the workflows that each user/ user group can see/launch?

Do you want it by Admin/DBA privileges?

Yes, I dont know if there is another way of doing that but I was thinking about doing it with the dba user

Set CR_allow_alternate_procedures=none

Template Filter
Using the Template Filter in the Workflow Designer you can assign a list of workflows for a specific object type and group.

SETUP:
• Open Workflow Designer
• Edit -> Template Filter
• Select Group Name and Object Type
• Select one or many processes and add to the Assigned Process Template List
• Ok the dialog

Creates preference TC_<ObjectType>_release_procedure with list of valid workflows.

Note: This process is deprecated in Tc11.2.3 which now uses BMIDE conditions to "exclude" workflows (opposite logic) unless you set WRKFLW_use_legacy_template_filter=true.

Thank you very much

With this knowledge of the method being deprecated, we can toggle that on, for a quick fix in Tc 11.2, but will it remain available, or should we move to doing it via BMIDE, in that we will be forced that way eventually?

 

I presume this move was based on some security reason?

I don't know the reason for it @DaveK and can't say that I agree with the new method. For the record, I have not tried the new method yet so take my advice with a grain of salt. First, it is harder to get to since it resides in BMIDE which will require a deployment and down time. Second, the original method was inclusive while the new method is exclusive, they functionally don't match. Including the WF's you want users to see is MUCH easier than excluding all the WF's you don't want them to see. Imagine a company with 100 WF's and now try to exclude 98 of them across 20 Groups. Yikes!

Gotcha.  Thanks for the bit of insight, I may go to an IR for information on the change.
