The most flexible way to specify actual users to work on tasks or to receive notifications is with a Logical People Group query. You can create a query that searches your enabled JDBC or LDAP Identity service for the users or groups that meet the search criteria.
A People Query is not applicable for a file-based Identity service.
For example, you can create a query that performs the following search in a JDBC or LDAP Identity service: "Select the manager of the task owner to receive an email notification for an overdue task."
To Load the Identity Configuration:
The query you write is based on the users and groups and their attributes that are configured in your LDAP or JDBC Identity service. The Identity service is configured in the Process Console, and then you must set up communication with the server from within Designer, as described in
Setting up an Identity Service
After the set up is complete, select
Load Identity Configuration
. A message informs you if the configuration was successfully loaded. If the configuration is updated on the server, the updates are automatically loaded into Designer.
Select either the Users or Groups radio button, and then select
to create an expression for retrieving users.
To Use the People Query Builder:
When the People Query opens, you see the following items:
is SPARQL, a language well-suited for retrieving identities from a data store. This is the required language for people queries.
column lists the Identity service’s parameters that are currently available for queries. For example, users' attributes always include
, and may include many other attributes configured in Process Server.
column lists any parameters defined for the currently selected Logical People Group. For details on adding LPG parameters, see

text box contains the
keyword from a SPARQL query. The Filter clause is the only part of a SPARQL query that you need to complete. The fully qualified query is automatically generated by Process Developer.
To create a valid SPARQL query, you must complete the FILTER clause, as shown in the examples.
