Can you change the groups or users that are associated as Administrators or Creator of a Human task during runtime? If so How? Can't find it in the Admin Console

    I don't believe so.

    You can change it but I don't believe it will take effect as these LDAP groups are loaded into memory at startup time and I don't think you can refresh the link to your LDAP server during runtime.
    I do see and entry in my WPS logs , just after mid night, where is states which LDAP server it is connected to, but if it refreshes it, I don't know.

      Can you change it and restart? we run in a clustered environment I can do a rolling restart to get the changes to take effect. If you can make these changes in the Admin Console can you please send me the path I can't seem to find it. Thanks in advance.

        I may have misread you initial post.

        Just give more details what it is you are trying to achieve?

          I would like to change a user or a group that is associated with one of the roles (administrator, contributor, reader) through the admin console. Otherwise I would have to change via WID and redeploy.

            Maybe something you could do is rather than enter the name of the group in WID you store the name of the group as a custom property of the task (or process) and then if you need to change it, you can just change the custom property.

            If you have a look at:

            http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/dmndhelp/v7r0mx/index.jsp?topic=%2Fcom.ibm.wbit.help.bpel.doc%2Ftopics%2Fcrepstff3.html

            It tells you the sorts of sunstitutions you can use.

            Now having said that, I'm not sure how dynamic your scenario needs to be or what it means for processes that are already in flight and how you might go about getting all of them changed etc.

            But at least it is something that you can investigate to see if it is right for your situation.
