After creating a customized form for any workflow task that needs human intervention as outlined in Creating customized forms for workflow tasks, you can use a Talend web template for this customized form. Later when a data steward accesses the workflow task detail in Talend MDM Web User Interface, the task detail will open with this Talend web template by default.
Prerequisite(s): You have already connected to the MDM server from Talend Studio. At least one workflow has been created.
To use a Talend web template for a workflow task, do the following:
Open the workflow process in the BPM perspective of Talend Studio.
Click in the workflow pool to select the workflow.
In this example, to use 6.x legacy forms, firstly go to the Execution panel, click the Instantiation form tab, and select the 6.x option; then in the 6.x Application panel, click the Look'n'Feel tab to open the corresponding view.
Click the Apply a look'n'Feel to open a dialog box where you can select one of the available templates.
Select a web template according to your needs. Here you want to use the Talend web template.
The dialog box closes and the details of the Talend template display in the fields in the Look'n'Feel view.
Save your modifications.
On the menu bar, click Deploy to MDM Server and select Deploy the Custom Form.
A dialog box appears, prompting you to select a server location.
Select from the list the MDM server on which you want to deploy the custom form, and click OK.
You can find in this list all connections to the MDM server defined when launching the Studio. For further information, see Connecting to the MDM server.
If there are active workflow tasks, a confirmation dialog box pops up, asking you whether to proceed with deployment. Click OK.
If no errors occur, a dialog box pops up, indicating that the deployment operation is successful.
Click OK to close the confirmation message.
From now on when a data steward accesses the workflow task detail in Talend MDM Web User Interface, the task detail will open with this Talend web template by default.
This custom form will show only the variable you define when creating the custom form while the default form will show all the MDM variables defined in the workflow.
For further information on using the two forms, see Talend MDM Web User Interface User Guide.
