Adding a profile definition

You can add a profile definition on the Lists and Profiles page in Process Manager.

See About the Lists and Profiles page.

To add a profile definition

  1. In the Process Manager portal, on the Admin tab, click Data > Lists and Profiles.

  2. On the far right, click the Add Profile Defintion symbol (the green plus sign).

  3. If you want to create a new profile definition, click Add Profile Definition.

  4. If you want to copy a new profile definition from an existing Process Manager database table, click Add Profile Definition (Existing Table).

    When you create a profile you create a table in the database. Adding a profile definition from an existing table assumes that data is already there. Usually these are created from ORM types.

    In the dialog box that appears, enter the following information:

    Reference Type

    The kind of profile that you want to create.

    Profile Definition Name

    The name of the existing profile that you want to copy.

    Table Name

    The name of the Process Manager table (in the database) that contains the profile that you want to copy. You do not need to include the .dbo syntax.

    After you enter the correct information and click Go, a new property appears. The property is called Select ID Field. Depending on which item you select in the drop-down menu, you can choose from the various fields that are exposed.

    Click Generate to finish

  5. If you do not want to copy a profile from an existing table, in the Add Profile Definition dialog box, enter the following information:

    Reference Type

    The kind of profile that you want to create.

    Name

    The name of your new profile.

    Description

    A description of your new profile.

    Hidden

    Sets whether your profile is enabled or disabled.

  6. Click Next.

  7. Click Add Definition Value to add a profile definition value.

    In the Profile Definition Values dialog box, enter the following values:

    Name

    The name of the profile definition value.

    Category

    The value category that is assigned to your value. These categories appear when you edit the profile definition.

    Description

    A description of the definition value.

    Data type

    The data type of the definition value.

    Is Array

    Sets whether the definition value has an array of values. If you want the definition to have only a single value, do not select this property.

    Is Default

    Sets whether the value uses the default value.

    Child Value

    Sets a child value for the definition value. If the profile does not have any other definition values, the drop-down list is empty.

    Default Value

    Sets a default value for the definition value.

    Sort Order

    Sets the order in which the definition value appears in the profile.

  8. When you finish adding definition values, click Finish.
