Netigma application involves a process manager that enables the user to follow the process. The process manager is a Netigma tool that identifies and designs work processes.
In order to ensure that the defined processes relate to the objects, a data column is used, which is also held in the process stages. When the data properties of this column are defined, the corresponding process name is written in the "Process Name" field. In this way, the name of the object is linked to the process.
When you insert a new record (row insert); the application registers this record in the process manager and writes the initial stage information (Id) to this process column. As the process continues, the current stage information is always updated in this process column. What should be noted here is the avoidance of operations such as manual change/deletion of the value or proceeding of the process from another application, which may cause a difference between the information in the process column and the process manager.
Another important issue is that different object forms can be opened in different process stages. Progressive stages can be traced by the forms of the object in question, such as "show A form while the record is in this state, show B form in this state" etc. Thus, while going through the registration process, the user may be prompted to enter different information in turn.
Process Manager Settings
A new column is added in the database to follow the relevant object. Click on the "..." button next to the column "Process Name" to enter information about the process. The process definition and synchronization window are opened.
Through the "process text box", the process that the field (column) matches is determined. After a value is written to the process field, the field-process mapping is completed by pressing the "Save" button.
The entered process name completes the match process if it is defined in the process manager.
If not defined, the application automatically opens the process edit screen, assuming a new process definition is requested.
Another function in the process operations window is to synchronize the process states, the application's database, and the values in the process column, and synchronize the values in the process column with the process manager.
When you click on"Click to get the statuses of the process manager, correct the Lookup definition and complete the integration", the status definitions found in the process manager are moved to the application's own database. For this, a database table named st_'ProcessName 'is created in the database. Each time this button is clicked, the status information in this lookup table is synchronized with the definitions in the process manager.
This synchronization process needs to be repeated when a new status is added to the process manager.
When you click on "Click to write the values from the Process Manager to the Status column and to register the Process Manager with no records in the Process Manager..." the current status information in the process column is updated with the actual information in the process manager. Also, if a record is not recorded in the process manager due to any reason, this record is also created. If a record can not be registered to the process manager due to a fault, or if there are records found before the table process column is created, this button will be clicked to automatically register all empty records with the process column to the process manager.
To create a new process, write the name of the process to be created and press Save to open the process editing screen. The process edit window can also be opened by clicking the "Edit" button.
Process Form Matching
The steps to follow for process - form matching are as follows:
The form editor of the field (column) to be used as the process follow-up column should be selected as "State Edit".
In this editorial specification, Group> Target Area information must be set to "Action".
On the process edit screen, click on the setting button next to the defined statuses to open the Status tab and match the status - Netigma form using the controls in the row labeled "Netifma Form" at the bottom of the window.
