    websale - process definition - doubts

      A swimlane without an actor assignment does not imply any limitation as to who can perform a task or to whom a task is assigned. The swimlane only associates multiple tasks to a single named role. In the case of the websale example, the default process definition doesn't assign the 'buyer' role to anyone until a new process instance is actually started, at which point the logged in user is assigned to the 'buyer' role.

      If you want to ensure that only certain individuals or groups can start a new process, you'll probably need to handle that restriction in your user interface. I believe the swimlanes/task assignments are intended only to manage a process after it has already been started.
