Developing an application : Using performers in activity worksteps

Using performers in activity worksteps

For each Activity workstep in Assign_A_Task_V1, you can assign a performer in the Performer box in the General tab of the Properties view. In the DoTask workstep, the performer is "Value of ‘Assignee’", that is, the initial performer is linked to the Assignee dataslot. You can dynamically change the initialized performer by changing the value in the Assignee dataslot.
1. In the Performer dialog box, click Modify to open the Performer box.
2. Click the ellipsis button beside the Name box and then the Select a Dataslot option to display the Select a Dataslot dialog box.
3. Select the dataslot and then click OK to modify the performer.
In the ReviewTask workstep, the Performer is shown as "Value of ‘Creator’". Here, the performer is specified as a variable in the process definition, the variable being the dataslot name preceded by the character '@'. The performer is the run-time value of the dataslot when the task is performed.
Note: For additional information about setting the Performer values in application development, see the OpenEdge Getting Started: Developing BPM Applications with Developer Studio.
