Hi,

Is it possible to make a task visible to a specified ROLE but only one user can Run it ?

illustration : i want to assign a task to a user in a specific department, but i also want all the users in that department to be able to see the task and track it, but they cannot work on it.

a work-around i came up with is to assign the task to the whole department, but hide the "run" button based on a custom field value in the task. also I added another layer of authentication when the task starts in order to increase security.(see the diagram ) alt text

is this work-around secure ?

is there a general solution for this issue ?

i am using v 7.0.2

your workaround is not secure. it is never secure if you just hide some in the user interface. the responsible role/user can see and can run the task.

but if someone takes the task no other can take the same task, this is the default behavior of the engine.

Hi @Alex, thanks for your contribution, can you suggest a proper work-around for this issue ?

i think you could modify your task list and query also tasks which are in state resumed. which workflow ui do you use? jsf workflowui, portal or a custom one?

@Alex i use a custom jsfworkflowui, i have modified the task list query, but eventually the users can only see the tasks that are part of their responsibility (assigned to a role they have or assigned to them directly ).
