Process visualization

A read-only graphical utility is provided as part of the Process Definition Tool, which enables process administrators to visualize processes as they are being created or modified. This tool allows administrators to view all activities and transitions in a process definition and provides a high-level view of all the possible paths through the workflow process during execution. The following figure shows an example of a graphical representation of a workflow process definition.

Figure 1. Visualization of Close Case Workflow Process DefinitionThis image displays the visualization of a workflow process within the process definition tool.

The visualized process comprises a number of nodes on a graph that represents the activities in the process. The nodes are linked by graph edges and these reflect the transitions that are defined in the process definition. Clicking an activity in the graph displays the details of the activity in the PDT. Similarly, clicking a transition between activities on the graph displays the details of the transition in the PDT.

The graphical tool displays the following information for each process visualized:
