Issue/Introduction

Description:

This document explains the new feature of take, reassign and delegate in CA Workflow 1.1 of ServiceDesk R12

Solution:

CA Workflow 1.1 has the following options in the workflow worklist:

Take: (Available when viewing a group queue only.) Takes the selected task from the group queue and adds it to your personal queue.

Reassign: Opens the Reassign Task screen to give task ownership to a new user or group and remove ownership from the original owner.

Delegate: Opens the Reassign Task screen to delegate the selected task to a user. After delegating the task, you still retain ownership.

Note: All the above options require EEM authentication as CA Workflow uses EEM as the contact repository.

  1. Login to CA Workflow worklist using the url http://server_name:tomcat_port/wl
