Process page is the main process modeling and configuring tool.
The top control panel displays buttons for recording, saving, and running the process.
The diagram displaying the sequence of activities is created in the modeling area in the center of the page. A mini map is displayed in the bottom right corner. It allows you to easily navigate through the process diagram and displays your current position.
There are three tabs to the left of the diagram:
- Palette. Activities and execution flows for modeling the process;
- Context. Process variables;
- Process. Name and description given to the process when it was created. You can change them if you need to.
Process diagram is a visual representation of the process. It shows the combination of activities, events, and execution flows following each other. It is created automatically during the recording of user actions.
To edit the diagram, drag the required activity/gateway/loop from the left panel to the element it has to follow.
These are the basic elements for creating a process: for example, clicking buttons in a program window, printing text in a field, starting a program, etc. Read more about activities in the "Activities" article.
Each process diagram contains events that manage the process state: run the process or end a certain branch.
There are two types of events: Start Event and End Event.
Start Event initiates the process and indicates its beginning. A process can contain only one start event.
End Event indicates a process or a branch end. The end events cannot have outgoing connectors. The number of such events in the process is unlimited.
The events are added automatically and cannot be deleted.
You can change the diagram scale in two ways:
- using a slider in the top left corner;
- using a mouse wheel while holding the Ctrl key.
