There are numerous 'inconveniences' that can't be too difficult to fix...

I'm sure we can get a long list of issues. Examples:

And many more.

For a tool that's based on Eclipse the Script Editor seems extremely crippled.

Can you please enhance the editor as per Eclipse just a little as follows:

Double clicking a word highlights all occurrences of the word in the script.
Allow word to word skipping as ever other editor allows i.e. CNTRL&(L|R) Arrow

These two very small changes would make the editor so much easier to use.

Many thanks and best regards
Seán

In Bonita 7.0, in the Tasks screen, we have the estimated duration for each task.
Depending on the remaining duration is displayed "in 3 days", "in 3 months" etc.

But in some cases, it is more accurate to display the date in days even for a large number of days.
For example: instead of "in 2 months" > "in 64 days"

I don't see any easy way to do this with Bonita yet.

So it would be interesting to have a configurable option to choose the granularity of the date calculations, something like:

hi there,

now that BDM is firmly fixed in Bonitasoft as the way to do things it would be nice if Organization was changed to a BDM(O) as well.

This would facilitate development and ease of use for organization parameters in select statements such as

I would love to create several custom widgets and give back to the community. It would be great to have a catalog button on the UI Designer which went to some catalog. Then we could see a list of all the community created widgets, pick one, then it downloaded into our UI Designer. The catalog could include a search, descriptions, responsive (yes/no), supported browsers, and which BPM versions it works with. Also an upload button for us to upload a widget we create.

Of course, all uploaded widgets would need to be reviewed by someone to check for any known security issues.

It would be nice to have a Organization/Processes Authority report which allows us to see how people gain their access to a process.

For example I have Organization/Groups and Roles but where does user X get his authority to execute process X, Y or Z?

This could/should be exported as CSV format for use in spreadsheets etc.

It would have to exclude Custom Actor filters for obvious reasons, impossible to do.

This would be very good for AUDIT personnel who need to verify security etc.

thanks and regards

Hi everyone,

I believe it would be an incredible improvement if Bonitasoft had plans to extend its BPM solution as a Mobile App Development Platform in future versions. Ideally, I am describing business needs beyond mobile portal. To be more specific I am proposing the availability of the following features in a future version or as a new release;

Hi there,

Is there any way you can change the release notes to specify where fixes apply?

For example

XXX-nnnn Comm - fix title
XXX-nnnn Team - fix title

Etc.

Of course fixes in comm are automatically uploaded to subs etc...

Regards
Sean

Is really a serious problem that Bonita BPM do not manage staff replacements on holiday.

The replacements may have three types:

  1. user by user between two dates

  2. user by user with process filtering between two dates

  3. user by user with process and task (both) filtering

Hello, we are on a forum for IT people, so there are many needs to copy-paste large amounts of Java/Groovy code in the different forums. I don't know if it's just me, but it's almost impossible to add a well indented code with the currently available tools.

3 times on 4, only "Code block" button is working, but all my code is put in only one line!
So I have to declare my code as a "quote", but there is no syntax coloration, and the code is really big.

With many, many faults being found in Java isn't it about time to add another scripting language to the system rather than rely just on Java based tools?

This is one example of a scary situation:

Bonjour,
Je commence d'abord par remercier Philippe Ozil sans qui bien des choses resteraient difficiles pour des debutants comme moi.
j'aimerais avec la contribution de chacun faire une version améliorer du Angular-portal proposé par PHIL pour y inclure les nouvelles fonctionnalités proposées par la version 7.2 du meilleur outil en gestion de processus BONITASOFT.

We have a process where in we try to update the business data as part of human task operations. The data gets updated in BDM DB schema instantly. But it doesn't reflect in business object model instantly. We use BDM search API to search for the business data, but we don't get the latest copy of data. Latest data gets reflected in business object model after some delay. There has to be a way to search for latest business data immediately after its updated by the process. Looks like there is some type of caching that is preventing to get the latest data. Please provide solution to this.

BDM currently only overwrites the previous ones. This is dreadful in it's implementation.

BDM needs to be 'non-zipped' and built as other resources and allowed the freedom it deserves.

This applies to Studio and Portal.

Thanks and regards

hi there,

Add an Application Tab to the Portal for Users so they can access the application.

While we can go straight to the process we can't go to an application...

I would suggest a lay out something like

Two Columns
Application Title Application Title
Application Description Application Description

Nothing more nothing less, for Community that is, subscription versions could have a layout applied etc.

Thanks and regards
Seán

We are starting to use the community version of Bonita BPM here at Snow College. Our auth system is based on Active Directory. I didn't want to confuse our users with yet another account, so I have modified the 7.1.5 Community version to talk to our Active Directory server by using the Apache Directory LDAP API. I made an earler 6.x version of this, but I had hard-coded the LDAP parameters into the code. Thanks to Sean McPoland for suggesting a way to put this in a properties file. I have implemented some of the code he suggested to separate out the LDAP settings into a new properties file. It should also be possible to take this file and turn it into something that uses the engine's authentication service, rather than modifying the original authentication implementation.

The LDAP properties file has a "fallThrough" parameter. If you set it to true, then if LDAP auth fails, the system will use the existing code written by BonitaSoft to query the local password of the user.

When you leave a living application open for a longer time, the session of the user (either the web session or the bonita session) might expire.
You will see this in the console as a developer, but the user won't directly see it.

What about a popup message and a redirection to the login page?

When exporting an Application it should Package all linked Resources, pages etc.

It seems dumb to have to import page after page before importing an Application that already knows about them.

For that matter, it would be good to be able to import more than one page at a time...

and then it would be great to be able to assign several pages to an application in one go rather than individually (from a select list that transforms into an editable table for data inputs).

Thanks and regards
Seán

Bonita doesn't have an OOTB user picker widget. I was able to build a widget that calls the identity API, but it has trouble when there are many people with a particular name. It would be great if there was a method I could call that accepted strings for first and last name and returned possible users.
