Create a Structured Process

A structured process contains a start event, an end event, and possibly other activities. You can start your process from scratch (that is, with an empty start event), with a form, or when a message is received.

To create a structured process:
  1. On the application main page, click Add.
  2. In the Add component pane, expand Processes, and then choose Structured.
  3. Enter a title in the Title field.

    The field is populated with a default name, such as MyStructuredProcess, MyStructuredProcess1, and so on.

    Note that the Identifier Name field gets auto-populated with the name you entered as the title, but without any spaces.

  4. Optionally enter a suitable description (such as, what it’s about, and why you would use it) in the Description field.
  5. Click Create.

A confirmation dialog lets you know that the process is created. You can open the process by clicking the Open now link in the dialog.

The newly created process gets listed in the Processes page. If you missed the Open now link, click the process from the Processes page and open it.

Delete a Structured Process

You can delete structured processes from your application anytime.

Before you delete, make sure that the process isn't referenced anywhere in your application. You get validation errors if any remaining references to the deleted process exist.

To delete a process:

  1. Open the application.
  2. In the application main page, select the structured process you want to delete.
  3. Click the options menu icon options menu icon and then click Delete.
