organizational extension in XES

Hi everyone,

I have a question regarding the XES format, more precisely the organizational extension. 
I followed the link and I generated a log with "role" extension, however, I have some issue with that.

So, my question is there any event log that I can download with the "role" extension?
I'm looking at this link but it is huge and I don't how to search it properly.

Thanks in advance,


  • Hi Rawan,

    Please look for the BPI Challenge 2013 data set. Both the incidents and the closed problems logs contain events with the "org:role" attribute.

    Note that "role" is an attribute as declared by the organizational ("org") extension. As such, when the "org" extension is declared, the "org:role" attribute has a fixed meaning: the (functional) role of the resource that triggered the event. In contrast, the meaning of the "org:group" attribute is the (organizational) group of that resource. Roles correspond more to a job description (like secretary, lecturer, manager, ...) whereas groups correspond to the organizational entity one is working in (sales, production, HR, ...).

    Kind regards,
  • Hi Eric,

    Many many thanks for the dataset and the clarification.
    I found the dataset and it is what I need now.

    You are always a great help, thanks.
