    OIM 11gR2 - Out-of-the-box Approval Workflows

    974033
      Does anyone know of any good resources that describes the out-of-the-box approval/provisioning workflows of 11g R2? I have searched Google back and forth but found nothing. Some of the workflows are obvious by their name (such as default/BeneficiaryManagerApproval!1.0), but others are not so clear regarding their flows.

      On that same note, can one of the out-of-the-box approval workflows be configured to route to an approval group instead of single users?

      Thanks for your help!

          Instead of searching for docs in google i guess reverse-engineering on your own will be the best way to understand the approval workflows. Navigate to OIM_HOME/server/workflows/composites. It will contain all the approval workflow zip files. Unzip the required one which you want to understand and there will be a .jws file in it. Now open that in jdeveloper and open AprrovalProcess.bpel and composite.xml. It will show how the approval routes and what are the business rules written, everything. It is the best way to understand the approval workflows.

          In the same way u can make changes to the out-of-the-box approval workflows also. See this OBE tutorial to understand how you can assign the approval to a group

          Also please try the approval workflow given in the developer's guide which covers most of the basics.
