    I've never done this myself, but I think you need to be calling the InvokeAction web-service to do this.

    Some discussion here ; InvokeAction - Process WSDL (and in other threads on here)

    You can call the InvokeAction web service using javascript via XMLHttpRequest within a CA PPM html portlet or an external web page.

     

    From within a CA PPM portlet, you are able to get the user's session id.  From an external web page/tool you will need an account that has rights to the web service along and the process to be invoked.

     

    V/r,
