Description

The activity GroupVote is responsible for collecting necessary data about the voting of a group on a special topic. Unlike the UserVote, it is not possbile to delegate the task. A user that is part of a group can accept or decline a vote and also leave a comment that justifies their decision. The voting result is determined by whatever threshold has been reached first and ends the activity.

Extension elements

Name of extension element Description Type
threshold Multiple thresholds can be defined element
threshold/type Arbitraty identifier, to be used in the connected gateway string
threshold/value Either absolute or relative number of users. Depends on unit. int
threshold/unit Either user or percent. string

Example

<bpmn:extensionElements>
   <wf:type>group_vote</wf:type>
   <wf:threshold>
   		<wf:type>yes</wf:type>
<wf:value>3</wf:value>
<wf:unit>user</wf:unit>
    </wf:threshold>
    <wf:threshold>
   		<wf:type>no</wf:type>
<wf:value>10</wf:value>
<wf:unit>percent</wf:unit>
    </wf:threshold>
</bpmn:extensionElements>

<bpmn:outgoing>FromGroupVoteToGatewayGroupVote</bpmn:outgoing>

Once one of the thresholds is reached, the activity will be completed and a <bpmn:exclusiveGateway> (referenced by <bpmn:outgoing>) will be called. It will choose its outgoing <bpmn:sequenceFlow> by mapping its name to the "type" of the threshold that has been reached.

<bpmn:exclusiveGateway id="GatewayGroupVote">
  <bpmn:incoming>FromGroupVoteToGatewayGroupVote</bpmn:incoming>
  <bpmn:outgoing>FromGatewayUserVoteToApproveRevision</bpmn:outgoing>
  <bpmn:outgoing>FromGatewayUserVoteToSendMail</bpmn:outgoing>
</bpmn:exclusiveGateway>
<bpmn:sequenceFlow
    name="yes"
    id="FromGatewayGroupVoteToApproveRevision"
    sourceRef="GatewayGroupVote" 
    targetRef="ApproveRevision"
/>
<bpmn:sequenceFlow
    name="no"
    id="FromGatewayGroupVoteToSendMail"
    sourceRef="GatewayGroupVote"
    targetRef="SendMail"
/>
