This post is part of the SAP Build Community Challenge (April 2023)

dan_wroblewski_0-1680162815071.png

This challenge will focus on the other major part of SAP Build Process Automation: Building workflows.

For this last SAP Build challenge, we want you to do 2 things:

  • Go back to all 5 challenges in this Group, and give kudos to the ones you liked. If you liked all of them, yes, kudo all of them.
  • Build an automation that will let you select a Zodiac sign, and then sends a message with your name and your personality trait.

 

Setup

To set up SAP Build Process Automation, use the SAP BTP Free trial.

  1. Create an SAP BTP Free Trial account, as described in the tutorial Get a Free Account on SAP BTP Trial.
  2. Set up SAP Build Process Automation on the trial account, as described in the blog post SAP Process Automation now available in your Trial Account.

 

Challenge

  1. Create a new Process Automation project.
  2. Create a new process.
  3. In the process, create a trigger form that looks like this, with a dropdown with all the Zodiac signs:2023-04-30_14-42-51.jpg
  4. Add 2 decisions:
    • One decision determines your personality trait (a list will be given below).
    • One decision will add at the end of your name the title "the Great" (e.g., Daniel the Great). 
  5. Finally, create a form that prints the entered user's name (with "the Great" at the end) and his personality trait. Something like this:2023-04-30_14-43-14.jpg

Upload pictures of:

  • Trigger form with your name and selected Zodiac sign selected.
  • Final form with name and personality trait.
  • Picture of your process.

Here are the Zodiac signs and personality traits we used.

SignTrait
AriesYou are courageous person
TaurusYou are a stable person
GeminiYou are a spontaneous person
CancerYou are both an emotional and material person

VirgoYou are a logical person
LibraYou are a person in equilibrium
ScorpioYou are a mysterious person
SagittariusYou are a curious person

If you need, here’s a quick tutorial that will teach how to create a simple business process in SAP Build Process Automation:

You will need to create a Decision task, so here’s another tutorial specifically to show you how to do a decision:

Hi @Dan_Wroblewski ,

You are really altruistic about giving kudos to everyone but there is a SAP restriction to do it 😅 ..... in only one shot:

In the meantime, let's enjoy developing the new challenge.

Thanks!

My submission for week 5 is below. I also gave kudos to the previous weeks' posts that helped me achieve the missions. For this week, adding 'the Great' to the name was not straightforward.

@MioYasutake It took a while for me to understand the format to put in the IF..ELSE part for text rule. The messages at the error console were not clear enough. The build App formulas have some examples to help. Wish we had similar here for process automation.

I agree with you about the helpfulness of the help inside the formula editor, and we should have such things all throughout.

The Decision step is a little tricky and it also took me a while to understand what was going on (I still have trouble sometimes). Thanks for completing 😺

Great work ... how come you decided on the branch step?




--------------

Hi Dan, as the steps are not dependent and can be executed in parallel, I put those on the branch. I did try the serial one first, then decided to go ahead with parallel branches.

Both the decision steps are independent and can be executed parallelly. So I thought Branch would be suitable for this scenario.

INteresting you used a branch ... I just did my in a straight line (serial). Why did you decide to use a branch?

Hi @Dan_Wroblewski ,

Was just trying out Branch and Merge method instead of direct line flow .

Hi,

And the last part is over, thanks for the challenge, looking forward to the new one.

In the decision part for zodiacs, I used the "Text Rule" for the decision and it was a bit difficult to identify all zodiacs, I think it would be more effective if it was possible to use like SAP Build App.

At first I didn't use the branches, but then I thought it would be more user-friendly and I did.

Hi @Dan_Wroblewski 

Here is my submission for the challange :

Input Form :

Final Form with Trait :

bharatbajaj_1-1683105260098.png

Overall Process Flow :

bharatbajaj_2-1683105279402.png


One issue I found with the Decision table was with adding each row one-by-one, that was time consuming. So I tried to import an excel file with the Zodiac-Trait mapping, but that didn't work. probably my excel format was not correct, despite having only 2 columns in the excel sheet. it would be nice to have an example of import/export decision tables in the SAP help document.

Regards,

Bharat Bajaj

I didn't think about providing an import file for the traits. But if you create the rule and then export, you will get the header information. And then I could give you the values that you can copy from my exported file.

2023-05-03_13-40-45.png

I did not find any documentation on the format, but above you can see the format you get when exporting.
