Who can access the process through the web link
Anyone with the link can access the process model, through the url or through the pages where you have published the model. The receiver of the link only has to have a web browser to view the process, no additional programs are needed.
NOTE: The process model is not password protected, literally anyone with the link can access your model.
If you have links or documents connected in the process model, these will be available to the receiver according to the links secondary access settings.
NOTE: If you have uploaded documents to the process model these documents will be available to anyone with the web link.
If the process is deployed and the receiver of the link has a Barium Live account with the access to start instances for the specific process model, the start event is active and an instance can be started directly from the model. Otherwise the start symbol is shown without the "play" symbol, but other interactive links and documents are still available.
How to disable the use of web link
If you want to remove the ability to access the process model externally through the link, go to Process settings and tick off the Enable weblink. Done!
This disables the link instantly for everyone.
When to use external web link
Use the external web link to share your process models to consumers without Barium Live accounts or show the models on your intranets. Everyone with the url can access the process model with its links and documents according to other secondary access settings.
