ELEMENT

CONSIDERATIONS

PROPERTIES

Exclusive gateway

Exclusive Gateway

When two or more transitions exit this shape at least one should be “Else”. The other outgoing sequence flows must have business conditions for Bizagi to evaluate. Only one can be met.

 

This figure is also used to synchronize paths. The first token to reach the shape will continue the flow.

Basic Properties

 

Display Name: This is the display name of the Gateway that is shown in the Work Portal.

 

Name: This is the name of the Gateway in database.

 

Description: Displays additional information for the Gateway.

Event based gateway

Event Based Gateway

A transition that exits this shape cannot enter a Sub-Process, Multiple Sub-Process or Exclusive Gateway.

 

Valid shapes following this shape are: Tasks, and Events.

Basic Properties

 

Display Name: This is the display name of the Gateway that is shown in the Work Portal.

 

Name: This is the name of the Gateway in database.

 

Description: Displays additional information for the Gateway.

Parallel gateway

Parallel Gateway

Does not require business rules because all the transitions that come out of this shape are always fulfilled

 

When the element is used to synchronize, as a convergence element, only one transition exits it. As a divergence element many transitions exit.

 

It is strongly recommended using a Parallel Gateways used as a convergent element after one or more Parallel Gateways used as a divergent elements, to be able to synchronize.

Basic Properties

 

Display Name: This is the display name of the Gateway that is shown in the Work Portal.

 

Name: This is the name of the Gateway in database.

 

Description: Displays additional information for the Gateway.

Complex gateway

Complex Gateway

When a Process reaches this element, the end user will be presented with a user interface that shows the names of the Activities following this shape as options.

 

The user interface may be configured as an Activity form.

 

As a convergence element the business condition will be evaluated at this point in the Process every time a transition arrives at this shape.

Basic Properties

 

Display Name: This is the display name of the Gateway that is shown in the Work Portal.

 

Name: This is the name of the Gateway in database.

 

Description: Displays additional information for the Gateway.

 

Inclusive gateway

Inclusive Gateway

When you use an Inclusive Gateway (divergence element), make sure there is at least one valid path. We recommend to add a transition with "Else" condition in case none of the conditions is fulfilled.

 

As a divergence element at least one path should be activated to be able to continue with the Process flow.

 

As a convergence element, more than one sequence flow should reach it, and just one sequence flow should exit from it.

 

Inclusive Gateways must be defined in pairs if they are going to be synchronized. One Inclusive Gateway (divergent element) must be defined to activate the paths and another Inclusive Gateway (convergent element) to synchronize them.

Basic Properties

 

Display Name: This is the display name of the Gateway that is shown in the Work Portal.

 

Name: This is the name of the Gateway in database.

 

Description: Displays additional information for the Gateway.

 

Extended Properties

 

Expressions or actions: On Enter and On Exit expressions can be associated to Gateways.
