Human Interactions is an element in the BPEL4People namespace that is an extension to BPEL. This element contains the child elements you can use to build a People activity, namely Logical People Groups, tasks and notifications.
You can add a Human Interactions element to the process or to a scope. As you define Logical People Groups, tasks and notifications at the process or scope level, they become available to the People activities at that level. Using a Human Interaction is a flexible and optional choice. The benefit is that the people assignments, tasks, and notifications within it are available to all People activities in a process.
The Human Interactions element is automatically added to the process when you use the
view to create people and tasks.
To manually add a human interactions element to the process:
From the Outline View, right mouse click on the process name.
Add > Human Interactions
The Outline View displays the BPEL4People elements you can use to build one or more People activities.
Use the Logical People Groups, tasks, and notifications to define generic elements that you can use in one or more People activities. You can override some of the general settings in each People activity.
Add a Human Interactions element to a scope to create local definitions.
It is optional to define a human interactions element. You can define a task or notification inline within a People activity, for use only within that activity.
