How can I display the processes linked to my start and end event on my diagram page?

Hi Signavio-Community,

we have individually configured our Diagram Page for display in the Collaboration Hub. The attributes "Vorgängerprozess" and "Nachfolgeprozess" (which I believe are "native" Signavio fields, as I cannot edit them in the setup) have been added to an attribute group which is configured for display on the diagram page.

We have added links to our start and end events and when we click on the events in the Collaboration hub they show up in the panel on the right.

Anyhow - they do not show up in the attribute group we have configured for the diagram page (other attributes of this group show up). I noticed that in the configuration dialog all types of start and end events are listed, but the normal "Start event" is not listed:

Am I missing something or can anyone confirm that this is unwanted behaviour? Can I add the "start event" to the configuration somehow?

Thank you,

Anna

Please go to Signavio Process Manager and Quick Model option. You Cn see the start event tin the Left-hand side tool bar and incorporate appropriate event name as per SAP recommended naming convention is data Dictionary. Start Event and End Event can be triggered by the applicable event name.

Hey Anna,

this is Martin from the SAP Signavio Customer Success organization.
Irrespective of whether an attribute is within an attribute group or not, the attribute will always only be shown on the element where it is linked. So it is standard behavior that an attribute on the start and end events will only be shown when you click on it.

Two possible solutions:

1. Instead of using the attribute on the start and end event, you create a new custom attribute on diagram level for both the predecessor and subsequent process, which then would be shown immediately.
2. You can see all linking and linked diagrams by using the computed attributes "Linking diagrams" and "Linked diagrams". However, these would also show all sub-processes or otherwise linked processes.



Best,
Martin

Thank you, martin_fischer - we are heading or the second approach indeed, otherwise we would have to manage the linked process in two attributes (the start-/end-event and the custom attribute in the diagram).

Have a good christmas time, Anna

Hi Selwyn,

unfortunatelty this is not what I was looking for. I have the start and end events in my diagrams, have namend them and they are displayed as expected, but I have linked the events to my predecessing and subsequent processes. I want to be able to see those processes in the diagram page of my current diagram.

Therefore I have configured my diagram page in the Collaboration Hub accordingly, but the diagram page only lists the predecessing and subsequent processes when actually clicking on the start and end events. Maybe this is expected behaviour, but I would rather have them displayed for the diagram as a whole and not only for the start and end events.
