Manager provides job service templates, which are enhanced job controller services. Templates allow a user to customize collaboration jobs without having to modify the job service definition. Templates are organization agnostic and you can't edit them. Templates are predominantly used for reviews and approvals, so Manager comes with four default review and approval templates:

  • Review and Approval - 1 Step Group Review - v1.0.0
  • Review and Approval - 1 Step User Review - v1.0.0
  • Review and Approval - 2 Step Group Review - v1.0.0
  • Review and Approval - Multi Step Group Review - v1.0.0

The job service templates are especially useful for:

  • Business users and form builders to configure their forms without a developer.
  • Greater reuse of a single job controller.

To use a job service template:

  1. Locate a form version.
  2. Click the Services tab to view services configured for this form.

    • Review and Approval - 1 Step Group Review - v1.0.0
    • Review and Approval - 1 Step User Review - v1.0.0
    • Review and Approval - 2 Step Group Review - v1.0.0
    • Review and Approval - Multi Step Group Review - v1.0.0
  4. Click Save to update the changes.
  5. Select the Job Properties tab to configure the collaboration job's properties.
  6. Select the Job Reviewers from the Reviewer Group dropdown list.
  7. Select the Job Example 1 from the Review Form dropdown list.

A job service template has the Form Property Editor Definition service parameter, which is a JSONJSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a syntax for storing and exchanging data and is used in Maestro to store forms. If a Form Builder wants to transfer their form to another system, they can do so by using the Download JSON file button. file containing the form properties meta data.

You can create a new custom template by adding the Form Property Editor Definition parameter to a standard job controller.
