Optional: Displaying additional assignment and operator fields

Updated on August 26, 2022

Apart from reporting and routing purposes, you can also display additional assignment and operator fields in the UI of Pega Process Fabric Hub. For example, in Interwoven Worklist, you can display a field that includes a geographical region that is related to an assignment or a field that includes the rating of a skill that is required to resolve the assignment.

Before you begin: Ensure that you prepare your Pega Process Fabric Hub and your remote system for publication. For more information, see Preparing for extending your data model with additional fields.

To display additional fields you configure the GetTasks and GetTasksCount report definitions, as well as a UnifiedWorkListTable section. All rules that you configure apply to the PPF-Work-Task class. The GetTasks report definition adds a relevant field to the assignment information, while the GetTasksCount report definition ensures that the assignment count in Interwoven Worklist is correct. You use the UnifiedWorkListTable section to display an additional field in Interwoven Worklist. You perform the configuration in Pega Process Fabric Hub.

  1. Configure the GetTasks report definition:
    1. In the navigation pane of Dev Studio, click Records.
    2. Expand the Reports category, and then click Report Definition.
    3. In the list of report definition instances, click the GetTasks report definition that applies to the PPF-Work-Task class.
    4. On the rule form header, click Save as.
    5. On the Save as report definition form, in the Context section, in the Add to ruleset list, select a ruleset to store the report definition, and then click Create and open.
    6. On the Query tab, click Add column.
    7. In the Column source column, enter the property from Pega Process Fabric Hub that you want to display.

    8. In the Column name column, enter a label for the field that you want to use in reports.For example: Enter Region.
