Searching for a Process Step within a Process

Searching for an Entry within a Process

To search for an entry within a process

  1. Open the search dialog box using CTRL + F.
  2. Enter the search text under Text.
  3. Start the search with Search.
  4. Use F3 to search next.

This searches for the text in the process and process steps.

Process step Name, description, generating condition, server selection script

Comparing Processes

To find differences between two processes

  1. Open the process in the Process Editor.
  2. Select Process | Compare processes... from the menu.

    The current process is already selected as Process A.

  3. Select the process to compare it with in Process B.
  4. (Optional) use the button to specify which process properties you want to include in the comparison. By default, all the properties of the processes, process steps and events are compared.
  5. Start the comparison with .

    Differences in the processes are highlighted in the output text.

    TIP: Mark the text and click the button to copy the text to the clipboard.

Exporting and Importing Processes

Exporting and importing processes is implemented through XML files.

To export a process to an XML file

  1. Open the process in the Process Editor.
  2. Select Process | Export... from the menu.
  3. Enter the file name and click Save.

To import a process from an XML file

  1. Select the category Process Orchestration in the Designer.
  2. Start the import by selecting Import process in the task view.
  3. Select the XML file and click Next.

    The process is opened in the Process Editor.

Simulating Process Generation

You can use simulation to test whether a selected process can be generated successfully or whether the syntax for passing parameters is correct. This makes it easier to alter processes if necessary.

NOTE: The option Do no generate is not taken into account when you simulate a process. Disable this option for process simulation.

TIP: An entry in the Process Editor toolbar is created for every simulation, which you can use to rerun the simulation without having to specify the simulation data again.

To generate a process for testing

  1. Open the process in the Process Editor.
  2. Select Process | View | Simulation view from the menu.

    This starts the process simulation wizard.

  3. Click Next.
  4. Select the event for which the process will be generated and specify the database connection for simulating. Select Designer database or Main database.
  5. Click Next.
  6. Select the object to simulate with this event.
  7. Click Next.
  8. (Optional) Change the object properties.
  9. Click Next.
  10. (Optional) Define parameters for the parameter collection. Enter the parameter name and value.

    NOTE: For processes generated with these parameter collection, you must specify the parameter and the value to pass (for example, parameter SourceDir when copying profiles or parameter ConfigName for loading a target system). No parameter collection is used for processes generated for the default events (insert, update, delete).

    Table 232: Actions for Defining Parameters
    Action Description
    Load process steps Loads process steps and their parameters.
    Insert Inserts a parameter in the parameter collection.
    Delete Deletes a parameter from the parameter collection.
  11. Click Next.
  12. (Optional) Specify global session object variables to use for simulation, for example "FullSync". Enter the parameter name and the parameter value.
    Table 233: Actions for Defining Variables
    Action Description
    Insert Inserts a variable.
    Delete Deletes a variable.
  13. Click Next.
  14. Select preprocessor conditions to be taken into account when the process is generated.
  15. Click Next.
  16. Start the simulation with Finish.

    The simulation process can take some time. The assemblies generated are saved locally on the workstation on which the simulation is executed. A simulation does not, therefore, have any effect on other users.

After the simulation is complete the generated process is shown in the Process Editor. The process steps are shown in color depending on the generation result.

Table 234: Simulation Color Code
Color Meaning
Gray Process step not generated.
Blue Process step successfully generated.

NOTE: Double-click on a successfully generated process step to display properties and parameters with the simulated data in the edit view.

NOTE: You can swap between the edit view and the simulation view using the menu Process | View in order to make any further changes.

To display a process generator log

  • Select Process | View | process generator log.
