About Collaboration Processes
A collaboration process is a unique type of process in the My webMethods Server environment and must not be confused with a standard webMethods business process.
A unique collaboration process is created any time a task user creates a collaboration task on the Collaboration tab of a parent task (the task must be enabled for collaboration). The collaboration process remains running until the parent task is completed, and any additional collaboration tasks that are created are added to the collaboration process. The collaboration process is owned by the user who created the first collaboration task, and the collaboration process owner has full access and privileges to the collaboration process and the collaboration tasks in it.
The key consideration concerning the collaboration process within Designer is the ability to specify sharing of comments and attachments among all child tasks in a collaboration process by setting the comments and attachments scope. For more information about setting task scope, see About Task Comments and Attachments Sharing.
