Getting instance id

Hi All,
Can somebody tell me how i can get instance id of a particular bpel instance just invoked. I'm aware of 2 options : using ora:getInstanceId() in the bpel process and using locater class to get the handle of the instance. Is there any other way to get the instance id other than these two. I cannot use these two options for some reason.. So i'm looking for some other alternative to get the instance id of the bpel instance. Can somebody help me out?

ora:getInstanceId() i can use only in the bpel process. I have a requirement where i have to invoke the bpel process programmatically and give feature to monitor the bpel instance just invoked. I have to construct the bpel instance url for which i require the instance id. As i understand the only way to get the instance id back is to return that value as part of the response of the bpel process which is not the way i expect. Hence looking out for some other alternative.

  • How to get instance notes in a global

    I have a global in a utility project that gets called through PAPI WS from an external client.
    I want this global to take an instance id as the input argument. It should then get a reference to the instance, get the instance notes currently associated with that instance and pass them back (as an array of delimited strings). The instance will be residing in one of many other projects.
    I can use PAPI in the global to connect to a BusinessProcess:
    connectTo bp
    using url = Fuego.Server.directoryURL,
    user = String(BusinessParameter.getValue(name : "GENIE_UID")),
    password = String(BusinessParameter.getValue(name : "GENIE_PW")),
    process = "/" + ou + "/" + process
    and I can get a reference to the instance using bp.getInstance(), but I can not see anywhere in any of the PAPI methods where I can get the instance notes for that instance.
    BTW I am using both ALBPM 5.5 and 6.0, so I need a solution for both.
    Basically this external client wants to get instance notes for a given instance (and there is other processing I need to do as well - I need to add in custom notes from a custom table before I return the results, so they can't just use PAPI WS directly to get the instance notes).

    I ran into this problem and requested from Product Management that they allow PBL code to get instance notes, audit info, etc. It's been a while since I've run into this problem but I'm sure it's the same issue. You can only get information about the instance notes, audit info, etc from PAPI.
    The architecture of BPM is such that the BPM workspace actually uses PAPI to do all its work. So in other words anything the workspace does, PAPI can do. But from within a process, PBL code doesn't have access to all PAPI functionality. You may want to raise this issue up with product management and see if they have any recommendations.
    BTW - It is not recommended to instrospect BPM tables to use from within your process. Although this would solve your problem, it is not recommended...

  • Get instance status through RESTful SDK

    I am working with a client who has integrated some BO 3.1 functionality into their application using the .NET SDK.  I am evaluating their code because they are upgrading to BI4.1 and a lot of the code will have to be scrapped and rewritten because they are using classes that are no longer available in the 4.1 .NET SDK.
    Ideally I'd like to rewrite the code using the RESTful web services.  I can see how to get folders and reports, how to schedule reports, and most of the other functionality they'll need.  However, I'm trying to figure out how to get a list of instances that belong to a report (Crystal or Webi) and the status of the instance (e.g., Success, Fail, Recurring, etc.)  Is this capability available in the RESTful web services?  If so, what is the request URI to get it?

  • Singleton Class using a constructor not a get Instance method ?

    I have a class with a couple of contructors, the class is instantiated many times in the application.
    Is there any way by which I can return a single instance of the class when the contructor is called ?.
    I dont want to declare a get instance method to return a single instance is it somehow possible to do this in the contructor itself.
    This is done so I dont have to refactor the whole application and change all the places where this class is instantiated.
    XXXClass xxx = new XXXClass();
    every time new XXXClass() is called the single instance of the class must be returned.
    I dont want to implement
    XXXClass xxx = XXXClass.getInstance();
    Thanks in advance
    Pradeep Thomas

    Pradeep ,
    You see a constructor does not return anything
    when you tell java
    String str = new String();
    It is into the reference str that a Object of the type String is assigned and used ..
    If you want a single instance to exist in your application ..the best way is to use the singelton approach.
    Alternatively you could create one static instance of the object in a parent class and all the classes that inherit from it will then share access .

  • Get instance into wf-steps

    Hi Experts!
    i look into 2 steps-WF,
    each task connect with corresponding instance-public method of class (with interface if_workflow).
    i complete my FIND_BY_LPOR and LPOR (as it's explained in Jocelyn Dart's blog)
    so,the first step is executed without errors and filled internal table (=puplic attribute of class)
    the second step returns empty table (i saw it through debugger)
    i suppose that is another(or new) instance of my zclass.
    should i get instance directly into wiobject_id and pass
    into second task container  via  wf container ?
    it works correctly ,
    when i used WF with BO and i saw table in the second step.
    Thanks for answers.

  • How to set filter to get instances for external variable

    I am trying to get instances based on external variable. Below is my code
    bp.connectTo(url : Fuego.Server.directoryURL, user : "test", password : "test", process : processName);
    fltr.create(processService : bp.processService);
    fltr.searchScope = SearchScope(participantScope : ParticipantScope.ALL, statusScope : StatusScope.ONLY_INPROCESS);
    //fltr.addAttributeTo(variable : "PREDEFINE_INSTANCE_NUMBER", comparator : Comparison.IS, value : Integer.parseInt(requestId));
    fltr.addAttributeTo(variable : "requestIdExt", comparator : Comparison.IS, value : Integer.parseInt(requestId));
    When I try to set the filter for PREDEFINE_INSTANCE_NUMBER, I am able to get the instance but not for external variable. Is there any other way to get instances based on external variables?
    Thanks in advance

    You can use a inputdate, which allows you to selecte a moth, year and a day. Once the selection is made you convert it to only allow moth and date like
            <af:inputDate label="Label 1" id="id1" autoSubmit="true" value="#{bindings.myMonthYear1.inputValue}">
              <f:convertDateTime pattern="MM/yyyy"/> 
            <af:outputText value="Selected #{bindings.myMonthYear1.inputValue}" id="ot1" partialTriggers="id1"/>
    then you have a string holding month and year only. This value you split into two variables you or pass it as a whole parameter to the query and split it there.
    Another way is to add two static lovs one for month and one for year and use them to get to the filter values.

  • Creating view to get instances to user in wich he has taken part

    I have a question. I should to create custom view inside Oracle BPM. This view should get only instances in wich current user has taken part, for a example, some user "test" has assigned in the instance to make some task. Part "Test" has done this task and he whant to look this instance after his task. But participant is not a initiator of the instance...
    This view is similar to another view, where participant create the instance and this participant - initiator. In this case, we should only add a condition in our view like "initiator is current user"....
    But what should I do in my case, when participat is not initiator of the instance but he whants to look tasks in the instance where he have taken part.
    Thank you very much.

    I have seen this requirement come up quite often but unfortunately it is not easily supported out of the box. The limitation is that you can only filter a view based on a project variable, and user defined project variables can only be primitive types. Because of this you cannot for example keep a list of participants as a project variable. The best you can get is a comma separated list of participant ids in a string, but this is still limited to 255 characters. The next limitation is that you can only compare the current user to a Participant project variable, so the initiator or current user, not against a string. The only way we have found to get the current user in to the filter against a string was to do some workspace customizations that were not all that straight forward.

  • How to get instance of Class with its type parameters

    #1. Is there a way to get my parameterized type (classarg) without resorting to using the bogus (proto) object?
    #2. Can anyone understand why the "C" and "D" attempts are different? (All I did was use an intermediate variable????) Is this a bug?

  • Doubt: How to get Instance Id of a BPEL Process

    Hi All,
    I have a doubt in BPEL as to how we can get the Instance Id of a particular faulted process.
    Business Scenario
    We have a process which does the following:
    1. Dequeue message from a queue.
    2. Do the Transformation
    3. Insert the Output message into a Database Table by calling a Stored Procedure
    The BPEL Process will create multiple instances of the process after successful completion.
    Now we want to add fault handlers at each of the above steps which will catch any exception that will basically get the Instance Id of the particular faulted process and send it to a mailing list using E-mail notification Service mentioning the Instance Id of the Faulted Process.
    Currently we could not find any way on how to capture the Instance Id of the Faulted Process. We have this requirement because in Production Environment many instances of the process will be spawned and it will be difficult to know which Instance has faulted.
    Anybody familiar with a similar requirement or any pointers on how to achieve this, please post it and let us know.
    Thanks In Advance,

    This xpath function returns current instance id of running process ora:getInstanceId().
    But in your case I would do this flow in ESB. Because this kind of "provisioning" of data can be done in ESB. Each execution I would define as async. And when exception occurs it will be logged by ESB and moved to error hospital. Administrator can easily use ESB console to query faulted instances and if neccesary he can resubmit them.
    Just an idea how to make it faster, without doing some special development.
