Restricting participants to region specific instances thru Views

We have multiple OUs such as NAM, APAC and LATAM created for each geographical region and our process is deployed against each OU. Users of respective OU will create instances and act on them. We have another set of users who belong to "ALLRegions" OU are assigned with Lead role. AllRegions is the parent OU for NAM, APAC and LATAM. Lead users of ALLRegions OU are able to see instances of all sub OUs. Some way we need to restrict them to see only instances of one or more sub OUs but not all. One such scenario is a user should be able to only NAM and APAC region instances. So we created view called NAM-APAC and assigned NAM and APAC regions processes to it and he is able to see only those region instances. But I have a difficulty in assigning this view as the default view to the user. Also the user should not be able to choose default inbox view after logging in to the workspace. Please help.

    This may not be possible using BPM workspace alone. You cannot prevent the user from picking the Inbox view in the view panel on the BPM workspace app. The are two alternatives if you want to restrict users from selecting the inbox view and getting a specific view to display by default:

    *1. Use Webcenter Portal/Spaces to display the SOA Worklist ADF Region (you can use BPM Process spaces if you are using spaces - it comes out of the box)*
    - you have to select the parameter option not to display the View panel - See Tamer Qumhieh's blog https://blogs.oracle.com/webcenterportal/entry/oracle_bpm_suite_oracle_webcenter on how to setup SOA worklist on Webcenter Custom Portal

    *2. Create a custom ADF application and add the SOA worklist ADF region*

    In both options you can use the region/Taskflow parameter ViewFilter - setting that parameter with the ViewId dynamically will display that specific view by default. You have to retrieve the viewId on your SOA server by extracting it using the ant-t2p-worklist.xml ant script - see the SOA Admin guide for more details here http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E15523_01/integration.1111/e10226/hwf_mang.htm#BABEBBGJ .

    There is a third alternative in changing BPM workspace features like Inbox columns and things of that nature here http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E23943_01/user.1111/e15175/bpmug_ext_apps.htm
