Create a process

The first step in the life cycle of a process in Iterop Design corresponds to its creation. The process is modeled in the form of a BPMN diagram using the process modeler.

Create a new template

  1. Click on the “Templates” tab in the menu.
  2. Click on the button Create a new template (top right).
  3. A new window opens. Indicate a name for this new template, then validate by clicking on Create a new template.
  4. The process drawing tool opens :
  • The steps:
    • 1️⃣ Start-event : A first BPMN element allows you to start modeling the process.
    • 2️⃣ Toolbar on the left : Groups together the essential BPMN elements.
    • 3️⃣ Top toolbar: Allows interaction with the modeller interface.
  • Start designing your process with the different BPMN elements
À noter

The template thus created is accessible from the interface “Templates”  which lists all the templates created.

Drawing a process

Avant de commencer

To design your process, you need to master the BPMN standard and associated elements. See the BPMN elements sheet.

Here is the process modeling interface:

  1. Click on the start event: the Start-Event. Icons representing BPMN items are displayed to the right of the selected item.
  2. Click on the XOR logic gate to add it and continue with the other elements.
  3. End the process by adding an end event.

Here is an example of process modeling:

Setting up a process

Here is an example of a process configuration :

Suspend/Stop a process

It is possible to suspend the start of a process.

For example, you have set up a recruitment process, but the company does not plan to recruit until next year. This allows you to temporarily suspend the start of this process to avoid unnecessary new tasks.

  1. Click on the tab “Deployments” (1) in the menu
  2. Choose the deployment to be suspended from the table (2)
  3. Click on one of the action buttons (3) according to what you want:
EtatBoutonEffet

Activated
The process can be started from IteropPlay or
from an external URL if one is configured. When a model is deployed, the deployment is
automatically activated.

Order
The process can no longer be started from IteropPlay,
and all current instances will be deleted and placed
in id=”gid_0″>”Tracking”

Warning, this action is irreversible.

Suspended
The process can no longer be started from IteropPlay,
If a process is suspended and has no more instances in
the status of this one is automatically changed to Stop.

Export/Import a process

It is possible to export or import processes in .bpmn format directly in iterop.

Export a model

  1. In Iterop Design, go to the “Templates” tab
  2. Choose the template you wish to export
  3. Right click on the Export button
export button

You can choose two formats: .iterop or .bpmn.

Import a model

  1. In iterop Design, go to the “Templates” tab and click in the top right corner on Import a template.

  2. Choose the file to import in .bpmn format
  3. Click on import.
  4. Your process is now accessible in the “Templates” tab.

Before importing your model, make sure that your actors or groups of actors, if any, are present on your instance.
