Feeds allow users to stay up-to-date with process milestones and other important process-driven events.
In Appian, users must subscribe to a feed in order to see it contents. When subscribed, any feed entry associated with that user shows up in their personal News feed.
Feeds are published with their referenced applications. In order for users to be able to view and subscribe to a feed, the feed must belong to a published application. Only users with at least Viewer permissions to the application will be able to subscribe to a feed through their user settings.
Once a feed is created it becomes available for use in the Post Event and Post System Event smart services. Note that:
To create a feed:
Feeds are only visible in Tempo to viewers of the published application.
The security role map of a feed controls which developers can see or modify it and its properties. By default, only the feed creator and system administrators have access to the feed. See Editing Object Security to modify a feed's security.
The following table outlines the actions that can be completed for each permission level in a feed's security role map:
|Edit the site definition||Yes||Yes|
|View the security||Yes||Yes|
|Delete the feed||Yes||No|
|Update the security||Yes||No|
To edit a feed, click on the name.
To delete a feed, select the appropriate feed and click the Delete button in the application view toolbar. Deleting a feed does not delete its entries in the News feed and does not prevent users from subscribing or unsubscribing from its entries.
