  1. So we have our change process that I have now seen this for the second time this week... where the BPM stops at a node. This has not happened before: In the change request, the task has been completed but it won't move on. In the instance log it says this: There is only one error in red but I have no idea what this means. If anyone can shed some light that would be great.
  2. I have had to draw this (apologies for my handwriting, strangely not a prerequisite for IT jobs!) We have a PCF that has a multiple choice question, which dependant on the answer would like to log it to a particular team (seems easy so far) but as it is multi choice the user can choose a variety of forms of help in one form, then we want to be able to duplicate the requests in the BPM so that the relevant team gets a request to work on with their workflow etc. Any help appreciated.
  3. Hello, I am trying to map an email template to pull through some custom text. Below is an example of the email template: and this is what comes through: Cuatom31 and 32 is set up correctly in the PCF but nothings is pulled through Also, how can i get the date field to just display the date in the UK format?
  4. This was working fine until this weekend without any changes that I am aware of. The BPM issue is a follows "Status : Failed Last Updated On : 09 Nov 2020 08:57:56 Xmlmc method invocation failed for BPM invocation node 's1/flowcode-b0352867-2f33-4f4c-804e-b6b6d6a26918': <methodCallResult status="fail"> <state> <code>0200</code> <service>apps</service> <operation>notifyEmailCustomer</operation> <error>FlowCode Exception (com.hornbill.servicemanager/entities/Requests/fc_bpm/notifyEmailCustomer): nodeName: Exception;
  5. Can I just check what time zone is used when retrieving a date/time field from the request in the BPM? The reason being is that we want to put a change request on hold until after it has been scheduled and until it is scheduled to be done. I am presuming the BPM works in UTC, so have used the Get Local Time node set to UTC and then using this to compare is the scheduled start date/time is greater than the local time. If the BPM using the session time zone then this potentially may not be correct, given the session may be user interactive or operate as the system context. H
  6. Is there any way to set an expiry period for a duration of 30 seconds? Im trying to find a workaround in a BPM whereby an analyst has a window of 30 seconds to add an asset to the call and putting decimals in the minute field doesn't seem to do the trick. Ideally I would like a function that suspends the flow until the analyst adds an asset, marking off a stage checkpoint in the process. At present there is no function I can find that will automatically continue a workflow after an asset has been added by the analyst and mark a stage checkpoint, in the same way as if you suspend a no
  7. Is it possible to create bulletins via a BPM? This would be great to allow the creation of these as we are looking to use the the Service Status functionality to mark services as impacted etc, however if there is a system that is down etc and as part of this we would like the opportunity to create a bulletin to display on the Employee Portal. Maybe we could have our own stock imagery for maintenance/failures etc to link for images and then the text is pulled from a custom field etc, also when the maintenance is over or the system is fixed via the BPM we can then remove or retire the
  8. HI, i wanted to combine some fields into h_description. found the concatting option. but instead of a sepperator i would like to add a Line feed would that be possible somehow?
  9. Hi all, Hopefully someone else has tried doing this. I'm trying to re-authorise a request after a rejection outcome. This is to allow the Agent to select a user with a collaborative license and resend the authorisation email on behalf on the requester. I'm trying to achieve this through a Human Task (select the user) then the authorisation node emails that user. See attached
  10. Hello. We have started using the "Custom Buttons" with "Auto Tasks". There is a key feature missing... Inputs into the "Auto Task" can only be given from existing variables. I would like to have an option for the input variable to pop up with a data entry box. I could then seamlessly "branch" from the input rather than creating several buttons with similar process. (I know i could use the Data Form and assign a Variable Text to that but this is not seamless) Thanks Jamie
  11. I am unable to access all the nodes on a BPM in the editor in the Admin Tool for Service Manager. Node(s) are off the top of the canvas and the scrollbar is fully up. Also browser, Chrome, zoom setting is at the normal 100%. Any idea? Cheers Martyn
  12. Would it be possible to have additional options added to the entity 'Timer' node to allow the manual pausing and unpausing of the Response and Resolution in the BPM, so that this can be controlled by workflow so having the option to control this outside of the automated status change process. Related to my earlier post link below. Cheers Martyn
  13. We are looking to implement Change Control requests in Hornbill to manage and record service subscription changes to Hornbill services for out external customers. As such we would like to automate the process of adding and removing service subscriptions both at the primary service and secondary catalog level. Therefore can we request a new BPM Node Object to allow interaction with Service Subscriptions. * Query Subscriptions - Pass in Subscriber Type and Subscriber ID, result list of Service ID object is subscribed too. * Query Service Subscription - Pass in Service ID, Subscri
  14. Following on from my previous request to be able to create new Assets from the Service Manage Request View, can we also request an enhancement to be able to create new assets from the Service Manager BPM. We would like to be able to:- Create New Asset, to be able to create a new asset passing the required fields. Link existing Asset, be able to link an asset to the current request, passing the asset id. Share Asset, i.e. turn on sharing and pass the id to the object to be shared too, in our case external organisation (Organisation ID) Update Asset, as per Create,
  15. I know this has been mentioned numerous times but I can't find the response to this, I have a date that I get via the Cloud Automation node e.g. But all I require is the day, month, year.... I have this node to convert but it comes back blank so the input format must be wrong?
  16. I have built my change management flow and i have noticed that one of the 'Hornbill' automation nodes doesn't seem to be doing what I have asked it to. This is my flow and i have highlighted what isnt working: The ticket should auto assign back to the change management queue, but it isnt. Here is the node config: what am i doing wrong?
  17. Can we request a enhancement to add a new BPM Node to allow the sending of Hornbill Notifications from the workflow to a user or team. In our example we are undertaking an auto assign process in the workflow and want to force the sending of a notification to a user/team based on the severity of the issue. At the moment we would have to send an email rather than use the inbuilt Hornbill platform. Cheers Martyn
  18. Hello. I am looking into ways that I can create a BPM that assigns tasks depending on if the User is in a group. I have attached a sketch BPM to show example. (The logic for the decisions has not been applied so ignore errors) Custom Attribute Solution I have considered using "Custom Attributes" to determine if a User has that software e.g "Custom Attribute A" = Yes / Custom Attribute = Software 1 My issue with this is we have more software than "Custom Attributes" and I dont know of an easy way to populate these fields automatically.
  19. Is there any update on having the ability to pause and unpause an event when interacting with a Contract Event via the BPM? Cheers Martyn
  20. I am sure I must be missing something simple, but how do you add a request to the Board in the New Board Manager from the BPM? I can see how you would do it with the Service Manager Boards, but not with the new Board Manager ones. I can also see how you do it in the SLA Escalations actions, but I want to add it to the board as soon as it is logged based on it fitting certain criteria. Hopefully someone can enlighten me what I have missed. Cheers Martyn
  21. Is there a way to have a decision based on time/date? e.g. we have a process which asks 'when is this person leaving' in a pcf with a date picker. We then use this to put requests on hold until this date, before closing thier accounts etc, however if someone selects a date in the past the on hold node can't cope with this and the BPM fails. So is there a way decision can be made, e.g. is this date (from variable) in the past?
  22. In Admin Tool 1202, it mentions the the ability to edit live instances of a BPM has now been moved to general availability. "Workflow - BPM - Editing Live Instances: Removed experimental flag. Feature is now generally available." Is there any documentation on this at all? Is it possible to make a correction to a previous version of a BPM and it applies to all current active requests, or do you have to make the change to each request instance of the BPM? Cheers Martyn
  23. So when I have gone into a decision today that looks for contains it seems that it has split the word/phase into separate individual components? Why has this happened and does this affect new decisions do we now need to set them up like this (as this is very labour intensive!)?
  24. I have noticed a few of our BPM's are showing the a really old version as the available one to publish. Is there a reason this is happening and is there any way to correct the one that is listed as available to publish to be the current one being used?
  25. Good Afternoon We want to move our Change Management process away from Sharepoint and use Hornbill Service Manager instead, one question I have is when a change has been approved is there a way for the Business Process Workflow to create a calendar event automatically for a CAB Meeting. Thanks Deejay
