Hello Everyone,

I'm relatively new in all things APG.  Our platform is still on 9.8, and I believe I was lead to understand that with APG you are able to create services.  Unfortunately, I've been finding it very challenging to get APG specific documentation/ manual to begin to understand the potential of this platform.  I'm currently interested (if it is possible) to create discrete ARIS services executing on the APG platform.  In order to be able to do this, I'll need the ability of an automated, hands-off or scheduled start triggering mechanism.

I'd like to begin with something simple such as the periodic execution of the database reorganization function for garbage collection, then perhaps the periodic export of an HTML export of a given ADB.  Possibly culminating in a full release system over multiple ADBs.

In many of the demo governance processes included in the APG implementation, they've all been modeled with a starting dialogue screen for a kickstart.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated in this regards.

Dear Edmund,

Have you attended the training course for APG Flexible Automation of Business Processes with ARIS?

That 3-days course provides the required APG knowledge, such as 

  • Flexibly design processes and dialogues
  • Realize automations with the help of pre-defined ARIS web services
  • Make your process models become executable workflow source code

Hello Edmund,

triggering the DB reorganization usually is done without APG simply using the task scheduler (Windows) or cron (Linux) and a command line script of ARIS administrative console. Maybe check out the capabilities of that first. APG is more adequate for coordinating and automating work between the stakeholders and shuffling things around inside and between the databases.

Regards, M. Zschuckelt
