I have a requirement with a customer to auto claim tasks. When a user selects a task from their task list (tasks by default are assigned to a role), it should be auto claimed. This is to prevent other users from working the task at the same time.
I appreciate I could educate / train the users to have to press the Claim button first, however I was investigating the feasibility of doing an Auto claim to reduce the need for the users to do this.
Does anyone know if this is supported Out of the box with BPM Suite? I have looked around the documentation and have seem no ways of doing this. An alternative would be to use the BPM API's however I ideally would prefer to not need to write custom logic for this.
Your thoughts and experiences would be appreciated
The default when you create a human task is that it is set to auto claim. To see this, open one of your human tasks -> click "Assignment" -> click the pencil icon in the upper right corner. There you should see the "Enable Auto Claim" checkbox already checked by default.
