Creating Custom Service/Workflow Catalog Using Page Builder

Last Updated: 12/06/2018 Introduced in Version: 2.0

Overview

Decisions offers a dynamically generated page for Workflow Catalog items. However, a user may want a Workflow Catalog page with more flexibility than the dynamically generated one. To accomplish this, the user would need to build a new page with buttons that call the desired flows. This solution offers the most flexibility of design, but will be harder to maintain and build out than using the dynamically generated Service Catalog page.

Note: Service Catalog was renamed in Decisions 3.5 to Workflow Catalog.

 

Example

This example assumes that you have two flows already built that you want to include on your Workflow Catalog page.
 
Create a new portal page named Custom Service Catalog. This will open a blank page that looks like this:
 
 
 
 
In the Toolbox expand the Actions > Flows category. Navigate to the flow you want to add to the page and drag and drop onto the page. After the flow has been dropped onto the page, select the flow  to edit the properties. 
 
 
 
 
You can also adjust the look of your button by selecting different styles from the Button Type drop down.
 

 

Below are examples of how each button type looks:
Link: 
 
 
 
 
Button
 
Image Button:
 
(displays any image you select)
 
 
Action Button : Primary: 
 
 
 
 
Action Button : Secondary: 
 
 
Because this is a custom page, you can add any page control to customize the look and feel of you page. We’ll add a short description label under this Run Flow button.
 
Under the category of Data drag over a Rich Text Display and drop under your button.
 
Enter text to describe your flow.
 
 
 
Repeat the previous steps for each flow you want to add to your custom Workflow Catalog page. For this example we have added one more flow and label. 
 
You can now click Preview to see what your page looks like. Save and close your page.
 
 
 
 
Now that you have built your page, you need to create a root level folder where you will display this page. Create a new root folder called Quick Links.
 
 
 
Navigate to the folder you just created and click Actions > Manage > Page > Add Page. Select the page you just created and click OK.
 
 
 
 
Navigate away from your Quick Links folder and then back to it. Now you should see that it loads your custom Workflow Catalog page.
 
 
 
 
Any changes you make to the original page will show up on this Quick Links page.
