Process Initiation Authorization

Hello,

i want to restrict users from starting new process instance.

i tried following example :

https://www.activiti.org/userguide/#security

but it didn't work.

i also used eclipse to set candidate groups but it didn't work too.

 

what i am trying to do is add identity link at ACT_RU_IDENTITYLINK table related to PROC_DEF_ID_ on deploying without using REST or API.

it should get candidate from bpmn xml itself.

sorry for bad english and i am new to activiti .

regards

Hi @AmirElsaeed & welcome to Alfresco!

Can you outline the exact steps that you took & also what didn't work - was there any output to screen or in the logs to say what hasn't worked, for example?

Thanks,

Re: Process Initiation Authorization

1- i opened actitivi-app

2- draw bpm process

3- exported bpm.xml file 

4- update it with the following 

<process id="potentialStarter"  activiti:candidateStarterGroups="myGroup">

5- import the file again.

nothing happen (still any user can start process instance although user is not in that group).

---

same with eclipse

although i set candidate starter and imported xml to actitivi app still any one can start process instance.

 

another thing is this table "ACT_RU_IDENTITYLINK" somehow related with process Initiation Authorization?

if yes how to add record with PROC_DEF_ID_ and candidate
