Conceptual Overview of the People Activity

Conceptual Overview of the People Activity

A People activity is an extension activity that is a construct from the BPEL4-People specification. It contains a task or notification construct from the Human Task (WS-HT) specification.
A People activity can have one task or notification (plus overrides) and uses process variables to send data to the task or notification. It receives data into a process variable from a task. In addition to using a task or notification, a People activity has its own properties, including scheduled actions, attachments, and other attributes. If you are using Guide Designer, these are defined within the guide.
The following illustration shows the building blocks for a people activity:
A People activity includes a task or notification with additional built-in workflow actions. The building blocks are divided into several properties including:
  • Scheduled Actions.
    You can define a deferred time to start the activity and define an expiration time for the activity.
  • Task or Notification.
    A People activity uses either a local or inline activity. For details on local activities, see
    Human Interactions Extension Element
    .
  • Input and Output Variables.
    The task's interface, and optional call back interface, are used to provide the input and output data for the task. The notification's interface provides input data.
  • Optional Assignment and Priority Overrides.
    For a People activity using a local task or notification, you can define new people assignments and priority level.
