Hiring tutorial > Model the process

To contain the Standard HR Open New Position process, you create the process application. The process application is stored in the Process Center repository, which you can access from Process Designer.

This lesson uses the following concepts:

Concept Description
process application A container in the Process Center repository that stores process models and supporting implementations. A process application typically includes processes, the services that implement activities and integrate with other systems, and other items required to run the processes. Each process application can include one or more tracks.
Process Center A central repository for all project assets that are created in Process Designer. When multiple Process Designer clients connect to Process Center, users can share items, such as processes and services. Users can also see changes that other users make as they happen.
Process Designer An authoring tool that you use to model and implement your business processes and demonstrate a process design and flow during development.


  1. Using the Process Center URL, open the Process Center. The Process Apps page displays the list of process applications that are available in Process Center.
