Configuring settings for the object-centric Open Purchase Order Management app

Use the Open Purchase Order Management app’s Settings view to configure the app’s runtime variables. The values that you set for the runtime variables in this view are used for the Knowledge Model variables in the Open Purchase Order Management app’s Knowledge Model.


After you publish an app for the first time, changing runtime variable values in the Settings view in Studio doesn’t change their values in Apps. The Open Purchase Order Management app needs to be published right away. So you’ll need to work with the view in the Apps area in order for the values of the settings to be applied for end users. It’s best to keep the two sets of variable values in sync so that your results in Studio match those in Apps.

Here’s how to work with the Settings view in Apps:

  1. In the Celonis navigation menu, select Apps.

  2. Find the Open Purchase Order Management app in the left navigation.

  3. Expand the app’s structure using the arrow.

  4. Select the Settings view.

  5. Update the values of any variables that you need to. If you haven’t selected a value, the app is using the default value.

  6. When you’ve finished configuring the settings, make the same changes to the settings in the Studio package for the app, to keep them in sync.


When you’ve finished setup and the app is in use by business users, to avoid accidental changes, consider limiting the availability of the Settings view. You could restrict it to a specific group of business users who are responsible for making adjustments to the variable values.
