Select object and event types
Object types

If one of the standard process types was selected, a set of default object types are included in your model, but you can add or remove object types from the model using the Select object & event types panel. You can select objects to include in the baseline model by clicking on any object in the Object types list or remove any of the default objects by clicking the name in the Selected object types list.

You can also change the default lead object, which is the object from whose perspective you want to explore the process. Every process must have a lead object selected and the lead object can be any object type currently included in your model.

Note

If you remove the current lead object from the model, you will be required to select a new lead object.

If you selected "custom process", you are required to manually select object types to include in the model as well as specify the lead object.

  1. In the Select object & event types panel you can see all the default object types assigned for this process type.
