This article gives an overview of the main components of the GXflow Client.
The following subsections describe each one of the components indicated in the above figure.
It indicates the name of the user currently logged into the system. Also, it allows the user to log out from the application in order to log in with another user.
A set of actions that allow users to perform actions on the selected row/s of the grid.
Through the Navigator, the user can select the applications of the GXflow client that he/she wants to work with.
The options shown in this tree depend on the profile of the user currently logged into the system. Basically, there are three user profiles:
- Normal user: this is the typical workflow system user. Each one of these users will normally have a group of roles assigned that will allow them to work with specific tasks of the workflow processes. They have the most restricted access level to the system and are not able to access any administration application.
- Process administrator user: in addition to the same rights as normal users, these users can access process administration applications. This implies that a user with this profile will be able to execute actions such as suspend or quit processes, assign tasks to users, etc.
- Administrator user: this is the profile with the highest access level and is aimed at system administrator users. These users will be able to access all GXflow client applications, which will allow them to execute actions such as creating new users, assigning/removing roles to/from users as well as setting up certain global options of the workflow system.
The assignment of profiles to users is performed in the Users application of the Administration Console.
The following table shows in detail the different options in the navigator:
