Required Setup Steps

Required Setup Steps 1. Set system-wide preferences and default user preferences for your installation of Oracle Workflow using the Workflow Configuration page in Oracle E-Business Suite or the Global Workflow Preferences page in standalone Oracle Workflow. 2. Ensure that a directory service is set up to provide information about the individuals and roles in your organization who may utilize Oracle Workflow functionality and receive workflow notifications.. 3. If you are using the standalone version of Oracle Workflow and your Workflow server is installed on a UNIX platform, define an environment variable called WF_RESOURCES. 4. Set up background Workflow engines to manage the load on the primary Workflow Engine by processing deferred and timed out activities and stuck processes. 5. Configure the Business Event System for event communication. For more information, refer to the Setting Up Oracle Workflow chapter in the Oracle Workflow Administrators Guide.

Step 1 Setting Global Workflow Preferences

Setting Global Workflow Preferences Use a Web browser to navigate to the Workflow Configuration page, using a responsibility and navigation path specified by your system administrator. Some possible navigation paths in the seeded Workflow responsibilities are: Workflow Administrator Web Applications: Administration > Workflow Preferences Workflow Administrator Web (New): Administration > Workflow Preferences Workflow Administrator Event Manager: Administration > Workflow Preferences You can also navigate to the Workflow Configuration page from other Oracle Workflow administrator Web pages by choosing the Administration tab or selecting the Administration link at the end of the page. You must have workflow administrator privileges to set global workflow preferences in the Workflow Configuration page. If you do not have administrator privileges, you can view global workflow preferences, but you cannot modify them. Workflow Administrator Select the role to which you want to assign workflow administrator privileges. If you want all users and roles to have workflow administrator privileges, such as in a development environment, enter an asterisk (*).Copyright Oracle Corporation, 2005. All rights reserved.

LDAP If you are integrating with Oracle Internet Directory, specify the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server information for the LDAP directory to which you will connect. If you already configured these parameters while installing Oracle Application Server with Oracle EBusiness Suite, Oracle Workflow displays those values here. For more information, see: Installing Oracle Application Server 10g with Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i (OracleMetaLink note 233436.1) and Integrating Oracle E-Business Suite Release 11i with Oracle Internet Directory and Oracle Single Sign-On (OracleMetaLink note 261914.1). Host - The host on which the LDAP directory resides. Port- The port on the host. Username - The LDAP user account used to connect to the LDAP server. This user name must have write privileges and is required to bind to the LDAP directory. Old Password - Enter your current LDAP password. Oracle Workflow validates this password before letting you change it. New Password - Enter the new LDAP password you want to use. The password must be at least five characters long. Repeat Password - Enter your new LDAP password again in this field to confirm it. You must enter exactly the same value that you entered in the New LDAP Password field. Change Log Base Directory - The LDAP node under which change logs are located. User Base Directory - The LDAP node under which user records can be found. Local System Specify the system name for the database where this installation of Oracle Workflow is located, to identify it in the Business Event System. Oracle Workflow automatically creates the system definition for this database in the Event Manager during installation. Select the execution status for the local system. Enabled Subscriptions are executed on all events. Oracle Workflow sets the system status to Enabled by default. Local Only Subscriptions are executed only on events raised on the local system. External Only Subscriptions are executed only on events received by inbound agents on the local system. Disabled No subscriptions are executed on any events. Default Notification Style Specify whether Oracle Workflow should send e-mail notifications to users, and if so, in what format. A user can override this default setting by specifying a different notification style in his or her individual Oracle EBusiness Suite preferences. HTML mail with attachments Plain text mail with HTML attachments Plain text mail Plain text summary mail Do not send me mail HTML mail HTML summary mailCopyright Oracle Corporation, 2005.

Browser Signing DLL Location Specify the location of the Capicom.dll file that is used for Web page operations with encryption in the Microsoft Internet Explorer browser. This preference is required only if you plan to use certificate-based digital signatures to confirm notification responses, and your users access Oracle Applications with Microsoft Internet Explorer. By default, this preference is set to a URL at which the Capicom.dll file can be downloaded from Microsofts Web site. In most cases, you do not need to change this setting. However, you can update this preference if the location of the Capicom.dll file changes, or if you choose to store a copy of the file on your local network and point to that location instead. JInitiator Review details about the JInitiator plugin in your Oracle E-Business Suite installation. Oracle Workflow uses JInitiator to launch Oracle Applications forms linked to notifications. Class ID The class identifier for this version of JInitiator. Download Location The location where the JInitiator executable is staged for download to users client machines. Version The JInitiator version number. For more information, refer to OracleMetaLink note 162488.1, Complete Guide to JInitiator for Oracles EBusiness Suite: 11.5.x (11i). Instructor Note The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) is a standard, extensible directory access protocol. It is a common language that LDAP clients and servers use to communicate. LDAP was conceived as an internetready, lightweight implementation of the International Standardization Organization (ISO) X.500 standard for directory services. It requires a minimal amount of networking software on the client side, which makes it particularly attractive for internetbased, thin client applications. For more information, see the Oracle Internet Directory Administrators Guide.

Step 1 Setting Global Workflow Preferences

Setting Global Workflow Preferences To access the Global Workflow Preferences Web page for standalone Oracle Workflow, use a Web browser to connect to the Oracle Workflow home page at the following URL: /wfa_html.home Replace with the base URL of the Web agent configured for Oracle Workflow in your Web server. Then choose the Global Preferences link. Note: You must have workflow administrator privileges to access the Global Workflow Preferences Web page. Workflow Administrator Enter the role with workflow administrator privileges. If you want all users and roles to have workflow administrator privileges, such as in a development environment, enter an asterisk (*).

When you install Oracle Workflow, the database where the installation is located is automatically defined as a system in the Event Manger and set as the local system in the Global Workflow Preferences page. System Status Enabled - Subscriptions are executed on all events. Local Only - Subscriptions are executed only on events raised on the local system. External Only - Subscriptions are executed only on events received from external systems. Disabled - No subscriptions are executed on any events. Ora
