In the Process folder you can create new BPMN models. If you create a new service in the Explorer, it automatically contains a Process folder in the service panel.

Process Folder Options

If you hover over the Process folder, two quick action icons are displayed:

Right click a Process folder to open its context menu.

The context menu displays all options available for the Process folder:

Adding a Folder

Use the quick action icon Add Folder to add another folder within a Process folder.

Alternatively, you can add another folder within a Process folder via the context menu by selecting Add Subfolder.

Enter a name for the folder in the pop-up window Create New Folder.

Click Save.

The new folder is created and displayed in the tree.

Adding a BPMN Model

In the Process folder you can create your BPMN models. One service can contain several BPMN models.

To create a model, hover over the Process folder to display the quick start icons and click 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.

A BPMN model name must be unique within one service.

In addition, the following name restrictions apply to all service panel elements:
