just to add in this, i see the notification about the workflow in AEM inbox for both user A and User B. But if i open the page in classic UI, the sidekick has the correct information under 'Workflows' tab. the message says, that the page is subjected to workflow and there is no option to proceed. But only User B can perform the next step in the page in classic UI.
Just to reiterate the findings,
- In Touch UI, notification about the workflow present in AEM inbox of both users and both can interact with the workflow. Ideally User B should perform the next step
- In Classic UI, notification is present in AEM inbox of both users and both users can select the next step from AEM inbox. But only User B can interact with the workflow from side kick when page is opened in classic UI. Ideally user B should be able to select the next step from AEM inbox or the sidekick.
Anybody else experiencing this? Any idea whats going wrong here?
Can you post the screenshot of the workflow model?
Does it show up in User K inbox?
Yes, User K and User A both can see the notifications in their respective AEM inboxes and both can choose the next step.
But according to workflow only user K should be able to work on the workflow to choose the next step and not user A.
I want to attempt to reduplicate your model and experience. Can you post back and tell me exactly which workflow steps you did and show the dialog boxes too so i can setup this model.
OK - i did this -- i created a model similar to yours. Two user UserA and User B - both belong to workflow user group.
User A has the 1st step assigned to them. As User B - i kicked off the workflow.
User B inbox view here -- http://localhost:4502/inbox :
So no message that lets me interact with the workflow.
In User A - i see here -- http://localhost:4502/inbox :
Now i can see the Workflow properly assigned to User A - not User B.
So in your 1st step - make sure it clearly has User A --
Scott, i can share the zip file (package) of the workflow i created. Can you please let me know how can i share that? i doubt if i can attach it here. But to provide more details, i can mention the dialog values below:
Step 1: Add participant chooser step
- Step 2: Add OR Split
- Step 3: Add Process step in left hand side
Step 4: Add Initiator participant chooser step on right hand side of OR Split:
I hope this helps. Thanks
That is what happened - in your 1st step - you did not assign a specific user - like I did, I assigned User A and User B cannot see it.
i see.. that was a silly mistake. Actually we migrated the workflow from AEM 6.0 to AEM 6.3 and seems like we had to do some authoring again to select the appropriate user/group. it looks fine after that. But we have observed that the admin or user who is part of administrators group are getting all the notifications in the inbox. Seems ok but we did not notice this thing in 6.0 version.
Thanks for the help here though.
I am glad you got it solved - i sent you a follow up email. Thanks!
