Linking Processes to Business Process DiagramsLocate this document in the navigation structure

While you can decompose processes into sub-processes in a process map, it is common practice to model the steps of lower-level processes in a business process diagram. The process map is commonly maintained by an enterprise architect or process analyst, while the modeling of fourth-level process steps is often done by process owners.


Note You must create the business process diagram before you can link it to a process in your process map.


  1. Select the process in the process map, and click the Diagrams facet of its property sheet.
  2. Click the Add diagram link and, in the dialog, navigate to the business process model containing the diagram you want to link to in the left pane.
  3. Select the diagram that you want to link to and then click Add.
    The business process diagram is now associated with the process. You can navigate to it from the process by double-clicking the process symbol.
