Hi All Experts,
Our company will be going to implement Teamcenter. We will like to know whether
Author users are able to create workflow ?
Reason being : we have a lot of workflow from several department and we will like the respective process owners to be responsible for their own workflow. IT will be there to verify it.
Many thanks in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Users with Teamcenter author license can launch a workflow.
Teamcenter workflow process template can be set up to fine grain your business process further in terms of who specifically gets to launch the workflow etc
Is there more to your question that I missed answering?
Many thanks for your reply. Have some queries in mind, hope you can clear my doubts.
- When you mention author users can launch a workflow, does it mean user can start and cannot create a workflow from scratch ?
- Can author users create a workflow process template ?
- Can author users modify a exisiting workflow ?
To answer your question, I will have to touch upon a simplistic view of Teamcenter groups:
In Teamcenter organization module, users (for our discusion, user with author license) can be assigned to:
For understanding, each workflow job (workflow job is created on click of OK of 'new process dialog' launched by using Ctrl + P) requires a workflow process template.
Question: When you mention author users can launch a workflow, does it mean user can start and cannot create a workflow from scratch ?
Answer: Teamcenter users with author license can start and create a workflow job (instanced when user selects a workflow template from Teamcenter 'new process dialog')
Question: Can author users create a workflow process template ?
Answer: Authors in administrator group are usually allowed to author a workflow process template. Due to the importance of creating a workflow process template, it is usually recommended to limit it to a small number of administrators who model a business process into Teamcenter.
Question: Can author users modify a exisiting workflow ?
Answer: Existing workflow instance can be modified by administrators.
