Disable POD start for an operation


Are there any possibilities to prevent a user from Starting an SFC through the POD in a certain operation?

E.g. In a operation performing a test we have a tester interface that we want to force the operator to use.
Today some operators use the POD instead of doing a re-test after repairing.

Naturally we are working with education for these operators, since we can see who they are 😉, but I am
anyhow wondering if it is possible to prevent in the system.

Best Regards,

    Dependend on your configuration and exact requirements you could build and use a custom activity hook, that checks if the SFC is allowed to be started on that operation.

    • Hi Dmitry,

      No, we did not go for using certifications because of two reasons:
      1) Not all our tester interfaces have the possibility to send a logged in user.

      2) Even if we have the tester interface sending the logged in user, someone must maintain the

      We actually went for a solution that is not mentioned here.

      1) Add a data-collection parameter with only valid value of 1.

      2) Tester interface sets this data-collection parameter to 1

      3) Data-collection permission is removed in POD.

      4) A Data-collection check (DC520) is added as a pre-complete to the test operation

      This way we achieve the same result. A normal operator can never complete a test operation manually.

      Best regards,
