Adding an Event to a Process
If you want to add a boundary event to an existing activity or subprocess event, see Adding a Boundary Intermediate Event.
To add an event to a process
1. Open the process model you want to work with in the process editor and do one of the following:
*Drag the event you want to add from the palette to the design canvas, or, in the process editor palette, click the event type you want to add, then click in the design canvas where you want to place the new event. You must use one of these methods the first time you add an event to an empty canvas.
*Drag an EDA event from the Registry Explorer, Package Navigator, or Search view onto the process editor canvas to create a Message Start Event.
*Use the palette view to add a BPM event step. You can also drag and drop an EDA event onto an existing None Start, Message Start, Message Intermediate, or Message End Event. The target event step is automatically associated with the document dropped onto it.
*Hover the cursor over an existing event on the canvas to display the speed buttons. Click the speed button for the event type you want to add, and then click the canvas at the location where you want to add the event. A transition line is created automatically from the source event to the target event.
Start events cannot be created from the speed buttons. The purpose of the speed buttons is to be able to add a process object such as an activity, event, or gateway, with an automatic transition from the source object. Because start events have no incoming transitions, they are not available as a speed button.
If the event is not the one you want, right-click the event and click Change Event Type to specify a different event type.
You can set the label of the event to be empty, or to have the same name as another step in the process. You can also change the placement of the label. For more information, see About Step Labels.
2. Add transition lines if needed and configure the event as necessary in the Properties view.
3. Save the process.
You can change the event type after you add it. For more information, see Changing an Activity, Event, or Gateway Type.
