Select a Stencil

Stencil names describe the category or sub-category of services and adapters for the icons they contain, with the exception of the Business Process Modeling Language (BPML) stencil. The BPML stencil contains icons only for BPML activities and instructions that coordinate the flow of activities within a business process model.

To select a stencil for use in the Graphical Process Modeler (GPM):
  1. Start the GPM.
  2. From the View menu, select Stencil > Stencil_Name.
    Look for the category of service and any sub-category that you need. Depending on the stencil category selected, there may be another level of stencils to select from.
  3. If you want to display all services (but not BPML activities) in one single stencil, from the View menu select View > Stencil > All Services.
For more information, see GPM Stencil Descriptions.
