Manage entities while viewing their actions

Overview

Once you have defined Actions as described in Actions, you may want to switch to a different view holding them, while grouped by the entities they apply to.

Switching to this view will allow you to manage entities (or their diagrams) from the Design experience, while getting a better idea on which actions can be affected upon changes in the underlying entities.

 

Using Group by entities

In order to switch to this view, toggle the Group by entities button while at the Actions tab:

 

Actions_11

 

Once this view is presented, you will notice you may see the full list of actions while viewing their applicable entities:

 

GroupedByEntities01

 

 

Notice that this view is read-only when it comes to defined actions.

Further possibilities to manage entities allow you to click on the 3-dotted option and use the following:

 

Edit: Allows you to modify the definition for the given entity, just as you would do when creating or modifying an entity in Bizagi. Notice such entity is not necessarily a stakeholder entity:

 

GroupedByEntities03

 

Diagrams: Lists all the diagrams defined for that entity (taking it as the starting viewpoint). Hover on this drop-drop to click on a given diagram and load it up, or to click on New diagram to define a new one:

 

GroupedByEntities02

 

Recall that the diagram for an entity serves an useful view where you can create or modify other entities, while never leaving the Experience Design (while having stakeholder definitions in perspective).
