About this course

Introduction

This course will introduce you to the Alfresco Process Services (APS) Step Editor and guide you through creating an example process using a Citizen Services example.

Alfresco Process Services (powered by Activiti) is an enterprise Business Process Management (BPM) solution targeted at business people and developers. At its core is a high performance open-source business process engine based on Activiti with the flexibility and scalability to handle a wide variety of critical processes. Alfresco Process Services provides a powerful suite of end user tools and integrates with a range of enterprise systems, including Alfresco Content Services, Box and Google Drive.

Alfresco’s process management capabilities lay the foundation for an agile digital business. Simple tools let business users design and adapt their own processes. Dynamic processes allow people to break out of rigid workflows and collaborate on issue resolution. And the integration of content with process adds intelligence to automated information flows so employees work more efficiently and effectively.

We will start with launching a pre-configured Docker Compose APS environment and then dive right into working with the Step Editor - defining various tasks as part of the overall process.

The course will finish by deploying and running your newly created process.

  • Install and launch a Docker Alfresco Process Services (APS) environment
  • Create and modify a process using the APS Step Editor
  • Use Human Tasks, Decision Logic, and Generate Document Tasks
