The Human Resources (HR) department wants the ability to add a new hire to the company payroll. The PegaHR application includes a case type to perform this work. A business architect has determined that the business process is sufficient for TGB's needs at this time. However, the process uses a work queue that does not match the organizational structure at TGB. The Human Resources (HR) department has asked that you create a new work queue and work group to match the organizational structure at TGB.

Override the default work queue (PayrollReviewWB) used in the Complete enrollment process of the Payroll Setup case type in the PegaHR application. To do this:

  1. Create a new work group for processing Payroll Setup cases

  2. Create a new work queue for routing assignments to review Payroll Setup cases

  3. Create a copy of the Complete enrollment process in the TGB-HRApps-Work-PayrollSetup class. In the new process copy, route the Review Selections assignment to the new TGBPayrollWB work queue.

The following table provides the credentials you need to complete the challenge.
