Process Framework

  1. If you wish to reconcile or post sessions and/or designs using Geodatabase Manager, select the "Enable Processing of Sessions and Designs" checkbox. If you don't plan to process sessions or designs, skip to the Connection Properties section.
  2. Select an option from the Provider field. This indicates whether the Process Framework is Oracle or SQLServer.
  3. Enter the TNS name for the database in the Data Source field.
  4. Enter the user name that should be used to log into the Process Framework database when reconciling or posting. This login user must have permissions to read/write the Process Framework tables and have the roles assigned that allow it to execute any tasks that may be executed during reconcile or post. Most commonly this will be the login that is used to log into the Process Framework Administrator tool (by default, the PROCESS user).
  5. Enter the password for the user. This should be the password for the Process user.
  6. If you have selected SQLOLEDB as a Provider, enter the Database name (sde). If you selected OraOLEDB.Oracle as the Provider, this field is disabled.
  7. Select the extension(s) available in the Process Framework database. You may select either Session Manager, Workflow Manager, both, or neither.
  8. Click Test Connection to ensure the properties entered are valid.
  9. If you want to set a new connection, click Clear Connection and start with step 1.
