WebSphere Portal 8 - Unified Task List Portlet with BPM 8.5
It's been a while since I posted anything about WebSphere Portal.
When I started this blog, seven years ago, I was working in the Technical Sales team, within the IBM Collaboration Solutions (ICS) Brand of IBM's Software Group ( fka Lotus ), and WebSphere Portal was one of the software products upon which I specialised, along with IBM Connections ( fka Lotus Connections ) and IBM Web Content Manager ( fka IBM Lotus Web Content Management ).
Times have a-changed, and I now focus on pure WebSphere technologies, including ( ironically ) PureApplication System ( did you see what I did there ? ), IBM Business Process Manager etc. In fact, if it runs on WebSphere Application Server OR is cloudy, I work on it :-)
That being said, someone pinged me a few weeks ago with regard to the Unified Task List portlet, on which I last worked in late 2012.
So, long story short, here's a new Wiki article that should answer the question that I was most recently asked - does UTL work with BPM 8.5 ?
The answer is …. YES :-)
This document describes how to configure the Unified Task List portlet in Portal 8 to handle tasks within IBM BPM 8.5.
