Feeds

You can include feeds in an application that enable users to stay current with process milestones and other important process-driven events.

When users subscribe to these feeds, any feed entry associated with them shows up in their personal News feed.

  • When a feed is published with an application, only users with at least Viewer rights to the application are able to subscribe to it through the feeds catalog.

When you create a feed, it also becomes available for use in the Post Event and Post System Event smart services.

  • You must create a feed in order to publish an event or system event to the News feed.
  • All users targeted in the Viewer Group of the smart service can see the event or system event in their News feed regardless of their rights to the associated application.
  • Users can subscribe/unsubscribe to a feed through the event or system event feed entry on the News feed.
