Attribute Management

Attribute Groups

In this section, you define how attributes are grouped and displayed across the workspace.

  • Before you create any groups, all attributes are listed in Ungrouped attributes. This means that by default there are no attribute groups in SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub. You can manage attribute visibility in the Attribute visibility section of the settings without creating groups.
  • When you create attribute groups, only the attributes added to a group are shown, depending on visibility settings. This means that attributes listed in Ungrouped attributes are no longer shown.
  • Each attribute can only belong to one group. After you move an attribute to a group, the attribute is no longer listed in Ungrouped attributes.

Add an Attribute Group

To add attributes to a new group, follow these steps:

  1. Select a Notation set from the drop-down list.

  2. Select New group.

  3. Enter a name for the group.

  4. To add attributes, select them in the Add Attribute drop-down list. To find an attribute, enter a search term.

  5. To reorder an attribute, select and drag the attribute to its new position.

  6. Apply your changes with Save.

Move attributes between groups

To move attributes from one group to another, follow these steps:

  1. Select a group to open the attribute list for this group.

  2. Select all attributes you want to move. Selected attributes are highlighted.

  3. In Send to, choose a group from the drop-down list.

  4. To move the attributes to the chosen group, select Move.

  5. Apply your changes with Save.

You can move attributes from Ungrouped attributes to your groups this way.

Preview by Shape

To check if your attribute selection looks as expected when groups and attributes are sorted by shape, select Preview by shape.

Delete an Attribute Group

  1. Select in the group you want to delete.

  2. Confirm with Delete in the dialog. The group's attributes are moved to Ungrouped attributes.

  3. Apply your changes with Save.

Recreate the Diagram Overview from Classic SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub

In the classic version of SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub, detailed diagram information was calculated automatically and shown in diagram overviews.

If you want to show the same information in the diagram overview, add the following attributes to an attribute group:

Attribute name Attribute type BPMN Value chain DMN
Activities Text x    
Input/Output Documents Text or Dictionary list x    
Dictionary items Dictionary list x x x
IT Systems Dictionary list x    
Linked diagrams Model link list x x x
Linked documents File list x    
Linking diagrams Model link list x x x
Parent processes Model link list x x  
Process result Text x    
Roles Text x    
Process Level Text x x  
Process Trigger Text x    

Which attributes are shown in the overview depends on the notation.
