The BPMN model contains your executable BPMN process - or processes, as a service may contain several BPMN models. A BPMN model opens in the BPMN model editor consisting of the diagram pane and the execution pane.
Adding a BPMN Model
BPMN models are managed within the Process folder.
To create a model, hover over the Process folder and click the quick action icon Add Model.
Alternatively, you can open the context menu of a Process folder and select the option Add Model.
Enter a name for the BPMN model in the pop-up window Create New Model. Click Save.
Restrictions on Element Names
A BPMN model name must be unique within one service.
In addition, the following name restrictions apply to all service panel elements:
... must not be empty.
... must not contain spaces.
... must not start with numbers.
... must not end with a period (.).
... must not contain one of the following characters: <, >, :, ", /, \, |, ?, *
Furthermore, the following strings must not be used as element names: CON, PRN, AUX, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, LPT9.
When you create a new model, it opens automatically in a new tab and you can directly start modeling.
Each application offers two basic functionalities during execution: The user can start a process (and create a so-called process instance) and he can view the existing instances that have not yet been completed. These "instances in progress" are displayed in the instance list. For each BPMN model, a dedicated instance list is generated. During modeling, you can define which data should be displayed in the instance list. The context menu option Edit Instance List opens the editor of the corresponding instance list.
