B BPMN Flow Object Property Reference

This appendix provides information for each of the BPMN flow object properties. It contains these topics:

B.1 Common Properties

This section describes common properties shared by multiple BPMN flow objects.

B.1.1 Basic Properties

Table B-1 lists the properties shared by all activities and gateways. These properties appear in the properties popup.

Table B-1 Basic Properties for Activities and Gateways

Property Description

Name

Defines the name of this flow object. This becomes the name of the flow object within your process.

Description

Provides an optional description of this flow object. Adding a description can make your process more readable.

Type:

Determines the type of flow object. When editing a project you can change the type of flow object by selecting from the drop-down menu.

Icon:

Displays the icon used for this flow object. You can click Change to select a different icon.


B.1.2 Implementation Properties

Table B-2 lists the implementation properties that are shared by multiple BPMN flow objects.

Table B-2 Implementation Properties

Property Description

Is Draft

.When selected, specifies that the flow object is a draft.

Sampling Point

Use to configure sampling points for this flow object.

  • Inherit Process Default: Select to use the default sampling configuration defined at the process level.

  • Generate: Select to generate sampling point data for this activity. This will override the default configuration defined at the process or project level.

  • Do Not Generate: Select to not generate sampling point data. This is primarily used for performance reasons.

Sampling points enable you to generate information about the performance of an flow object within in a running process. The data generated according to this configuration is stored in the Process Analytics Database.

Sampling point generation specified at the project level is applied to all of the processes within the project. See Section 4.4.12, "How to View and Edit Project Properties" for procedures for setting sampling point for a project.

However, you can override project-level settings within a process. Likewise, sampling point generation specified at the process level is applied to all of the flow objects within the process. You can also override process-level settings within each flow object.

Overriding sampling point generation at the project or process level is usually done to improve performance. For example, if your project contains a process that contains a great number of activities and you are not interested in obtaining process metrics for this process, you might choose to set its sampling point configuration so that the process does not generate sampling points.

Likewise, if you are interested in measuring only one process within your project, you might choose to set the project not to generate sampling point and configure that particular process to generate sampling points.

By default, the project sampling configuration is set to generate sampling points only for interactive activities.
