How do dynamic processes work in process applications?

Use the dynamic process editor as a canvas to define, configure, and activate dynamic processes for process applications.

Automate unpredictable processes that require expert knowledge or changing circumstances

Many business processes don’t follow a structured or sequential path. They might have many possible activities that experts could act on as needed, given the situation. Which tests should a doctor administer? Based on test results, does the patient need surgery? Which documents must be approved before a treatment stage can begin?

If you’re new to dynamic processes, start here to learn the basics by creating, configuring, and activating a dynamic process.

Combine dynamic and structured processes in process applications

Combine dynamic and structured processes in a process application to take advantage of their strengths. For example, orchestrate an overall unpredictable process with a dynamic process that accommodates a wide variety of activities, but use structured processes for activities that follow a structured path.
