Default Priority Aquire Resource in ProcessFlow

Hi,

I´m looking for a fast and easy way to prioritise the way one resource is aquired in ProcessFlow. Since there are many different Points asking to aquired the resource, I want to give one point the highest priority.

Does anybody have a good solution for me?

Default

If the resource is not numeric, then you can use its Queue Strategy field (this is just the internal list's back order queue strategy brought forward in the UI). In this case the list pullers are the tokens that are acquiring the resource, so you can give the acquiring tokens priority labels, and then have the resource queue strategy be ORDER BY Puller.priority DESC. This means if there are multiple tokens wanting to acquire the resource, the token with the highest priority label will get it first.

Note that this will only work if the resource is not numeric. If you don't have objects to associate the resource with, but still want to use the queue strategy, you can just have the Reference field return an array of numbers:
Code:
intarray values = makearray(10);
fillarray(values, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10);
return values;
