Uploading or saving models to Modeler Services repository

Overview

Every model stored in Modeler Services needs to be created using the Bizagi Modeler desktop application, and then uploaded to your subscription.

The user who uploads a model is known as the Owner of it.

 

You have two options to upload models:

 

Upload a model that has been stored locally in your computer

Save a new model directly to the Modeler Services repository
