Feeds allow users to stay up-to-date with process milestones and other important process-driven events.
Users can subscribe to a feed in order to see it contents. When subscribed, any feed entry associated with that user will appear in their personal News feed.
To allow users to view and subscribe to a feed, the feed must belong to an application where the Publish application actions in Tempo option is enabled. Learn how to enable this setting.
Once a feed is created it becomes available for use in the Post Event to Feed and Post System Event to Feed smart services. Note that:
To create a feed:
|Name||The name of the feed. We recommend that you follow the standard object naming conventions.|
|Description||A short description of the feed.|
|Show in Catalog||Determines whether users can subscribe to this feed in their user settings. By default, this checkbox is selected.|
To allow users to view and subscribe to the feed, it must belong to an application where the Publish application actions in Tempo option is enabled.
To enable this setting:
To edit a feed:
To delete a feed:
In the Delete Feed? dialog, ensure there are no objects that depend on the feed.
If there are objects that depend on the feed, then deleting the feed will cause an error to appear in those objects.
Deleting a feed does not delete its entries in the News feed and does not prevent users from subscribing or unsubscribing from its entries.
Only users with at least Viewer permissions to the application will be able to subscribe to a feed through their user settings.
The security role map of a feed controls which developers can see or modify it and its properties.
If default security groups are configured for your application, the default security groups prepopulate the role map when you create a feed. If default security groups are not configured for your application, you are automatically assigned Administrator permissions for any feed you create. System administrators can always access a feed, regardless of object-level permissions.
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|
