View all workflow instances in CQ5 (cq.workflow.superuser)

To view all workflows instances in workflow console/inbox & perform workflow actions on them, a user :

Must be a workflow superuser to view all workflow instances.

There is a OSGi config Day CQ Workflow Service[1] which has a property “cq.workflow.superuser”.

This property is a  list of workflow superusers & superuser groups. OOTB only admin user &  administrators group are added to it.

Should have Read/Modify/Create/Delete (RMCD) permissions on ‘/etc/workflow/instances’ to perform all workflow actions.

Please follow the steps given below to achieve this :

1) Go to /useradmin console and create a group e.g. workflow-su

2) Add this group to the “Contributors” group so that it has basic read permissions.

3) Then give RMCD (Right Modify, Create, Delete) permissions on ‘/etc/workflow/instances’ to this group.

4) Go to the config [1] and add the group workflow-su to the list of superusers & superuser groups (cq.workflow.superuser)

5) Assign group ‘wf-supuser’ to the users.

Cheers,

SolutionCenter.msi installer package pop up

This is one of the common and known issue that comes over on one or the other computers which had installation of hp printer software a number of times and rarely disturbs new hp connections.

The error message comes up with the following message :

‘The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable’

SolutionCenterMsi

The above picture is just an example for the same pop up but for another package. It can be a solutioncenter.msi, hpproductassistant.msi, status.msi, trayapp.msi or any other pop up asking for msi installation package.

Follow the simple steps to give a permanent solution, though there are other solutions in which you locate the *.msi file in the setup folder on software package/CD. The other way is to use windows installer cleanup utility, but the best solution is here.

  1. Open registry editor.
  2. Browse to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products
  3. Under this you will see a long list of keys with alphanumeric names. Locate the key with the product name as “solution center” and delete it.

After deleting this entry it will be a hassle free experience for you.

All the best ~ justgurpreet
