Rather than start your creator and action processes with a single form where you want a user to enter some data, you can now choose whether you want any other tasks to be performed before the case creation or action is initiated. You can:
Using the Get data from all matching list items function, you can look up items in a list, and copy them to another list. This is useful if your process contains tasks that are dependent on data that is contained in the list.
You can also use the Get data from first matching item function to look up a single item from a list.
TIBCO Scribe® Online Connector for TIBCO Cloud™ Live Apps allows you to build data integrations between TIBCO® Live Apps applications and any combination of other cloud-based and on-premise applications. From TIBCO Scribe®, you can connect to a Live Apps service, find and retrieve your case information, create cases and perform case actions.
Any API call to a TIBCO® Live Apps service must include valid authentication information. You can include authentication information using the methods provided by the Authentication Service.
For more information about how to use these methods, see "Authenticating API Access to TIBCO Cloud™ Live Apps Services" in the TIBCO Cloud™ Live Apps API, at <liveapps domain>/apps/api-explorer/index.html.
You can now add a task to a Live Apps creator or action process and configure it to log Live Apps events to a shared audit log in TIBCO Cloud™ AuditSafe. This is useful if your Live Apps application is participating in applications using several cloud services in your organization and you want to quickly and easily get an overall view of what has happened for a whole instance of a business process.
You can use the TIBCO Cloud™ Live Apps API to start a case creator or a case action for an application. You do this by using a combination of methods provided by the Authorization Engine Service, the Case Manager Service and the Business Process Management Service.
For more information about how to use these methods, see "Starting Case Creators or Case Actions" in the TIBCO Cloud™ Live Apps API, at <liveapps domain>/apps/api-explorer/index.html.
A case action can now be configured to automatically start after a defined period of time when a case reaches a certain state or states. This is useful if you want to specify a period of time that a case can be in a particular state or states before some remedial action is taken.
A new web link data type that records a URL is available. Using the web link data type:
A new reports dashboard is available in TIBCO Cloud Live Apps that allows you to access summary data about your cases and work items. For example, you may want to see the number of cases that have reached the Pending state, so that you can take remedial action to progress those cases.
A new Live Apps Assistant is available in TIBCO Cloud Live Apps Mobile that allows you to create and interact with your cases using an automated chat-style interface. You can create cases and start case actions using text or voice. TIBCO Cloud Live Apps Mobile is available via the appropriate application store. The Live Apps Assistant is available in the US and Europe.
A new participant group data type that records a selected group:
Your application can use a conditional flow to decide how a case should proceed based on the participant data field.
You can now restrict case actions to one or more users or groups of users that have been selected from a participant data field.
A case action can now be configured to start automatically when a case reaches a certain state or set of states. This is useful, for example, if you have tasks in a case action that follow on from tasks in another case action. In this scenario, you may want to start a case action automatically, without waiting for a user to do something.
Data picklists enable your application users to choose from a set of data that’s available in your case. When completing a form, an application user can choose one or more items from a list of data. This is useful, if you want to get a list of items from a company data service, such as a list of different types of paint that an application user can order.
When designing an application in Live Apps Designer, you can now share a copy of your application with people outside your Live Apps subscription. In this way, applications can be used like templates.
You can now configure a user task to send a work item to one or more specific users in your subscription. Previously, user tasks could be directed to groups of users. Now, an application user can select specific people in their organization to send a subsequent work item to.
New feature help videos have been added to Live Apps that now describe, user tasks and work items, associating data with forms and state availability and exit states. Videos are now situated in the appropriate areas within Live apps as well as in Live Apps Help sidebars.
