Install the Graphical Process Modeler

Although the Graphical Process Modeler (GPM) is an included feature of Sterling B2B Integrator, it does not automatically install with Sterling B2B Integrator, because it operates as a separate, Web-deployed application. The GPM must be installed on each computer from which a user will access Sterling B2B Integrator and work with the GPM. This enables Sterling B2B Integrator and the GPM to interact. For example, you can check in and out business process models from the GPM, and update a service configuration in the GPM after making changes to it in Sterling B2B Integrator.
