process definition security

Hi,

Does BPMN2 foresee a way to secure the start event in a process ? Like you have assignment groups for a task, is there something similar for the start event ? In our case not every user is allowed to start (or even see) all available workflows, they are divided by business department with each their own responsibilities.

What i am trying to get to with above question is this: if we have one activiti database per organization, and all process definitions are put there, how can we prevent users from starting workflows they have no business starting ? One way would be to dedicate one activiti database to an application, this is doable but has its own set of advantages/disadvantages in terms of management.

How do other people deploy activiti for multiple applications / departments ?
