Is there documentation : Auto Processes assigned to Ojbects

  • 1.  Is there documentation : Auto Processes assigned to Ojbects

    Posted 03-09-2018 05:26 PM

    I am trying to build a process which will kick off automatically based on an Object event.  More specifically a subobject create event.  My main object is IDEA and my subobject is DIARY NOTE.  What I want to do is execute my process for each DiaryNote that is created for an IDEA that meets a further qualification (e.g., an idea element (custom) has a value assigned).  I realize that I may have to define the last part in the query run by the GEL Script and I am fine with that. 

     

    What I am looking for here is guidance on where to find documentation that is comprehensive on creating Processes and how to link them to Ojbects; and the additional things that must take place and be set up to actually run them.  For example, I created a process and tried to run it, only to find that my Object needed to have additional set up items to be created which link the process to the object. I would also like to find documentation which will guide me in the expression language and what I can do there (e.g, it is not TSQL, it is not Java, etc).

     

    Thank you for the help.

    Process information is in the "administrating" area of the documents ; https://docops.ca.com/ca-ppm/15-3/en/administration/configure-processes 

     

    The procedural language used with processes is Generic Execution Language (GEL) - there are a lot of discussions in this community around GEL (just search!), but the documents are here ; https://docops.ca.com/ca-ppm/15-3/en/reference/xml-open-gateway-xog-development/xog-gel-scripting/gel-basics

    David,

     

    Thank you for the two links.  They were both very helpful I have book marked them for future reference.  However, I am still looking for the expression language used.  And, hopefully, a dictionary for the expression language.

    Well as I said, there are many discussions on these boards about GEL, just search for them! 

     

    But, I'll help you a little bit ; the FAQ thread here ; CA Clarity General Discussion - FAQs contains some links to the underlying (apache) documentation (which is not really that good) but also attached to that FAQ thread are a couple of CA documents with examples and explanations of GEL. The website linked here GelScripting.com  is also really neat in terms of writing GEL.

    Thank you David, you have been very helpful in my search for documentation.  As you have suggested, I will continue to refine my search terms to search and utilize this community to garner the information I need to be more successful in utilizing Clarity in general and Gel Scripting in particular.
