How to avoid goup's other member's process on one workflow in GP

Hello experts,

I've got a question on GP. I need a group of users to start the workflow in GP. So I added a group as the initiator in my GP process' design time. Then each one in the group could start his own workflow process. The problem is that if one started the GP process but exited without passing the workflow to the next approver, everyone in the group could see this started workflow process in his todo action list and could proceed with the existing workflow process. But I want only the initiator to see his own workflow process. Is there anyone who could help me? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Xian,

    You need a group of users to start a GP process in which there may be more than 1 Actions in the sequential block. Now, you want only the user who has completed Action1 of the process to see the new task generated for Action2 in his UWL rather than the other users in the group. Correct me if I am wrong.

    So, what you can do to restrict the other users in the group is pass the userId as a GP Parameter (type-string) in the Output Parameter of Callable Object 1 and then have UserId as Input GP Parameter for second callable object. Now within the block, one of the properties tab woub be Roles. Go to this and you can see a list of block roles and a column saying "Filled from Context Parameter". For the Second action, select the UserId Parameter from the drop down to mention the Filled from Context Parameter of the Action which will in turn be the Processor of the Second Action. Similarly, you can do the same for Action 3 and above and same userId passed from Callable Object 1 would be the processor of all the actions for a specific process started, although anybody in the group can start the process.

    All the best,
