As many other employees, my colleagues and I have to do our expenses manually. Luckily, we have K2 and, therefore, we automated the process. We created an Expense Claim App with the workflow in the background. However, it still takes a lot of time to submit the request. That is why I have been challenged by one of my colleagues to add the OCR functionality. I accepted the challenge and here is the article, which will quickly guide you, how to integrate a K2 Expense Claim App with ABBYY OCR. As a result, you will get a tool, that can scan your receipts and auto-fill the rest of your fields with the recognized values. And before I proceed any further, this is the final result, how all this can work.

I could not find a clear explanation on K2 Knowledge Center, how workflow versioning works in the new designer (K2 Five and/or K2 Cloud). I still receive some questions from my colleagues, therefore, I find it helpful to create a short article and explain all the details. However, you need to understand, that everything was tested on K2 Cloud Update 7 and K2 Five 5.2. K2 might change the behavior, which make the following article invalid. So let's go.
Such scenarios are not common, that you need to use K2 with NoSQL databases. However, I would still like to show the possibility of a K2 platform to connect to NoSQL databases to 'CRUD' data. Moreover, the REST API I am trying to show is kind of dynamic. The object schema as well as the collection you are working with completely depends on the swagger schema you use with K2 REST Broker. The current approach is also suitable for a K2 Cloud platform.
After release of Microsoft SQL Server 2016, Microsoft added a feature, which is called Row-Level Security. It allows users to control row permissions in a database table based on the characteristics of the user executing a query (for example, group membership or execution context). In this article I will try to describe the approach you can take to use Row Level Security with K2 and SQL ServiceBroker, when building K2 applications.
Making dynamic Email Templates is a frequent requirement from many customers. The idea is to be able to change the email subject and body without redeploying the workflow. There are a lot of different ways how you can implement this. In this post I will show how dynamic email templating functionality can be achieved with the help of several tables and a stored procedures in SQL. I deem this approach as a very useful one for those applications/projects, where most of the data is stored in the SQL Database.
