What's the solution about data persistence in BPM?

In some cases,data of completed processes need to be stored and reused in some applications.But in current BPM,I can't find where the data is stored and applications can't find interfaces to acquire these data.For example,if I want to check last month's or season's finished processes including detailed data in a Web Dynpro UI,what's the solution?

    not sure what exactly you are looking for. NW BPM offers a BW integration which allows you to do reporting about such things. Some information can be found here:

    Besides that there is a public API introduced in BPM 7.30 which allows you to access data via java api. But I guess the apis offered by the public API are not suited yet for your use case as it does not provide such advanced search capabilities.

    Best regards.,

    Adding to Stefan's need to develop your own reporting data sources in BPM along with the outof the box VC datasources to see more useful information in your dashboards.

    If you are looking for purely in terms of reporting prespective, check out this blog too /people/radostina.kasova/blog/2010/03/16/6-sample-sap-netweaver-bpm-720-dashboards-implemented-with-visual-composer

      Hi Abe,

      The workaround I see is create another reporting data source for the complex type and map the fields from complex type to the data source fields.There should be a unique/primary key field in the data source so that you can retrieve the correct data later on...

      Lets see if any one else in the BPM community implemented this kind of scenario

      Regards, Anil
