Problem in mapping GP parameters and process completion

Hi,

I have a block which is sequential and it contains:

1. action ( the first screen of the process)

2. an alternative block ( 4 actions)

3. when i run the process, following happen:

a. the first screen opens up with proper details

b. on click of button, second screen as well opens up. But the data that gets passed is only the gp single attributes. Any tabular structure data doesnt get passed.

c. on second screen, if i click reject, it displays the last screen as per the result state set, but again no data gets passed ( in this not even the single attributes)

d. on second screen, if i click accept, it goest to the third screen as per the result state set, but no structure data gets passed. Only single attributes are displayed.

e. on the second screen, when i click next button, it doesnt display the thrid screen, just a message that action is completed. Whereas, ideally it should take the user to the fourth screen.

4. i have mapped all the attributes in the alternative block.

5. when i created sequential block, in that as well, all the attributes of first action and alternative block were grouped. ( whats the difference between group and propose consolidation functionality)

6. i have set the targets in the result states of second and third screens.

Second screen has 2 conditions: if approved, goes to third screen, and if rejected, it goes to the last summary screen.( both happening, but data not getting passed)

Third screen has only one result state - success. for this also , i have set the target as fourth screen, but it doesnt appear.( not happening)

Can anyone please help in this regard.

Thanks & regards,

Anupreet

    Hi

    Try mapping at process level.

    In general

    Propose Consolidation proposes the "like parameters". i.e for eg...

    when you select "Price" and click Propose Consolidation then all the "Price" parameters will be selected and you will be able to group those.

    and

    Group is used to map the parameters.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I think your process flow is like that

    Process

    Sequential block

    Action

    Alternative block

    Action 1

    Action 2

    Action 3

    Action 3

    The Hierachy of Action in Sequential block and Action in Alternative block is different.

    use the process flow like this

    Process

    Sequential block

    Action

    Alternative block

    Action 1

    Action 2

    Action 3

    Action 4

    create the Sequential block and Alternative block in the process level and u map the Attributes in the process level.The Attributes will be mapped in the Process Level.The Attributes will be mapped both in Process level and in Block level if it is in same Hierachy level.

    Hi Anupreet,

    Have the decision action(ie. the one with approve/reject) ONLY in Alternative Block. Then have the rest of the action in sequential block. Let me give u a simple example

    Action1 - input form - have this in Block1(Seq)

    Action2 - Decision form - have this in Block2(Alternatives Block)

    Action3 - Resubmit input form(incase of REJECT in Action 2) - have this in Block3(Seq) - the target for this Resubmit should be Action2(Block2). Set this target at Process level.

    Action4 - Final Form - Block4(Seq)

    And coming to the mapping of parameters, try grouping them first at block level and then map the grouped parameters with that of the individual parameters at the Process level.

    Let me know if you have any queries. The same problem I faced sometime back.

    Cheers,

    Madhu

      Hi Anupreet,

      You are facing this only in the reject? Coz as far what I have done, I will map the parameters(if i have more than 1 Action in a Block) within the Block itself and if there is only one Action, I map the parameters at the Process level. Here the catch is, if you map the parameters at Process level, you should take the mapped Parametersin Blocks (if present) else take the I/P and O/P parameters separately. Try this and let me know if you have any problem.

      Cheers
