Would you like to notify the user to take action (approve/reject) or just simply notify that some action has happened in middle of the process? Here is the article which helps you to enable the notifications in Oracle Process Cloud Service.
This article will not take more than 5 minutes to complete. Oracle PCS provides the Notify activity which allows us to send email notifications.

  • Select the Notify activity and click on the Open Properties
  • Select the Expression parallel to the “To” field. Here we can add hardcoded or dynamic recipient. We’ll take “To” from the Leave Form.  Select the Simple from the Expression Mode and enter below expression
leaveFormDataObject.email

  • Select the Expression parallel to the “Body” field and enter below dynamic expression
“Your leave has been approved from “+leaveFormDataObject.from+” to”+leaveFormDataObject.to
