Version 7.13.0

New features

Receive translation suggestions via DeepL connector (separate licensing)

In the public workspace of the new user interface, translation suggestions for language-dependent text attributes can be requested via the DeepL API. This enables even faster translation of multilingual content from diagrams and catalog entries. The feature is available in diagram and catalog translation modes and requires a connection to a DeepL account. Administrators can easily link their company’s DeepL account in the new BIC Process Design administration to connect their system to the DeepL API.


Please note that DeepL integration is separately licensed and needs to be activated for your account. Before linking a DeepL account, ensure your company policies allow data exchange with DeepL.

Bulk editing of diagram attributes in the public workspace

In the new user interface, we have significantly simplified the management of existing diagrams. Administrators and Editors can now comfortably make bulk changes to the assignment attributes of diagrams in the public workspace. The bulk editing function allows for efficient updating of an attribute value for multiple diagrams simultaneously.

Creation of a BPMN Quick Model including resources

In the BPMN Quick Model Excel template, resources for an activity can now also be captured. When importing the completed Excel template, the associated resources are automatically included in the generated BPMN diagram.


Please note that importing resources may generate new catalog suggestions and does not rely on existing catalog entries.

Open PDF attachments directly in your browser’s integrated PDF viewer

PDF attachments in both the old and new user interfaces are now opened directly in the browser’s integrated PDF viewer. This allows you to easily view PDF documents even if you do not have a separate PDF viewer installed on your device or if you want to view the document before downloading it.

Existing functions available in the new user interface

Translate diagrams in the public workspace

We have improved the translation mode for diagrams. You can now access it in the public workspace without having to check out the diagram. The translation mode can be found in the diagram options.

Export repository

Administrators can export a repository via the category tree to download the data from the public workspace, preview, or publication.

Publish repository

Administrators and Editors can now publish repositories from the public workspace. To avoid unintended publications, we have implemented an additional security measure: Before publishing a repository, a confirmation dialog is displayed. This ensures users that the publication is intentional.

Improvements in the new user interface

Display diagram and object type

The type of a diagram or selected object is now displayed in the properties.

Integrated forward and backward navigation

We have improved navigation in the new user interface. You can now use the integrated forward and backward navigation to navigate forward and backward along your navigation path.

Property view for relationship attributes

You can now also open and display the properties of relationship attributes in diagrams and objects. This feature was already available for assignments and has been extended to relationship attributes.

Marking objects with comments in the diagram

We have improved interaction with object comments. Users can now select commented objects directly from the comment area to mark them in the diagram and move them into the visible area.

Displaying occurrence attributes in all diagram views

The values of occurrence attributes are now displayed in all diagram views. Please note that you may need to customize the profile view of objects to display the desired attribute.

Existing administration functions available in the new user interface

The new user interface provides access to familiar administration functions. You can now easily:

In upcoming versions, we will integrate additional missing administration functions into the new user interface.


Timestamp in case overview

Users can now see in the case overview when a task was started and completed. Intermediate timer events are also displayed in the process flow view of a case. The trigger time of the intermediate event is also displayed. This promotes the transparency and traceability of your work processes.

Event-based process control

From now on, a message with the event ID is sent for throwing events such as end events or certain intermediate events. A corresponding catching event such as start events or certain intermediate events with the same identifier are automatically triggered by this message. This function enables a more transparent and precise control over your work processes.

Immediate process termination by end event

Cases can now be instantly terminated by terminating end events. This is useful whenever the process contains parallel paths, and the parallel activities no longer need to be executed when a certain end event is reached.

Configuration of output document reports

With Service Tasks, documents can now be created based on templates, like BIC Process Design. Users have the option to fill a Word template with data from the case and to flexibly choose between output formats Word and PDF. This extension enables efficient document creation and opens a wide range of application options for individual process requirements.

Defining multiple expected HTTP status codes

Users now have the option to specify multiple expected HTTP status codes when configuring REST requests. This new feature provides enhanced flexibility in API usage, allowing you to make your applications more robust and reliable. This is important, for example, if a particular endpoint sometimes responds with 200 and sometimes with 201. With the introduction of a new variable, “_response”, you can access to the status code, enabling you to control the further course of the case.

Summary of case information in a variable

Until now, various pieces of information about the case were available in individual variables (e.g., creatorName). With the introduction of the new smart variable “_case”, we have now summarised this information for all newly created processes. With the “_case” variable, customers can easily access case information.

Input documents in subprocess

As a user, you now have the option to provide documents in the case for a subprocess. To do this, you simply need to model the document as input in the main process for the subprocess, and the file will be automatically made available in the subprocess.

Corporate Design and Redesign

The color configurations from BIC Process Design are now also adopted in BIC Process Execution to ensure a consistent design of the application. Additionally, we have further optimized the UI in BIC Process Execution and aligned it with the new UI from BIC Process Design.

Process variables for archived cases

From now on, ProcessApp Administrators can also access process variables for archived cases. For the ProcessApp Creator role, access to these variables remains limited to the Studio and testing environment.

Quick identification of signature tasks

Users can now identify which tasks are configured as signature tasks in their task list. This function allows for quickly identifying signature tasks and determining where additional authentication is required.

Notification for unsupported browsers

From now on, users will receive a notification when attempting to access the application using an unsupported browser. This notification aims to ensure that users have the best possible experience with the application and encounter no limitations due to their used browser.

Version 7.12.0

New features

Automatically create a BPMN diagram via Excel import

Administrators and editors can now download an Excel template for BPMN diagrams from the online help and easily, consistently, and efficiently capture their processes in Excel. Add activities and responsible roles and import the Excel file into the public workspace of the new user interface. A graphical BPMN diagram is automatically generated with the specified responsible roles as pools and lanes. Activities are connected by a continuous sequence flow.


Please note that this feature is only available in the new user interface. If further editing of the graphical BPMN diagram is required, users need to switch to the old user interface. In future versions, we plan to add support for satellites.

Restructured occurrence list and extended evaluation for assignment attributes

We have made significant optimizations to the occurrence list in the catalog and diagram options for modeled objects to enhance clarity and detail.

The structure of the occurrence list has been reorganized to include a dedicated entry for each diagram. Instead of a long list of uses, you will now find separate entries for each diagram in which the object is used. These entries are easily accessible and give you a detailed view of how the object is used in that diagram. With just one click, you can seamlessly navigate to the precise usage and quickly visualize connections.

Additionally, we have extended the occurrence list to display the usage of assignment attributes. This means that you can easily review all instances of an object’s usage, allowing you to navigate to specific use cases effortlessly.

New sorting for multivalued attribute values

We have improved the search for specific attribute values when dealing with multiple entries in the new user interface. The user’s current content language is now automatically used to sort the values of assignment attributes, text attributes, links, and files alphabetically. Examples of such attributes are standard attributes like ‘author’, ‘reviewer’, ‘keyword’ and ‘attachment (URL)’. Custom attributes are sorted similarly. The sort order is applied in the matrix view, in the properties, in the quick access under an icon in a diagram, and on the details page of a catalog entry.


Please note that alphabetical sorting is currently not supported in reports and exports. We are actively working to remove this limitation in future updates. This sorting is not available in the old user interface.

Execute reports on archived diagram versions

The new user interface now allows you to run reports on archived process versions. You can simply open the archive of a diagram version and execute a report on that version without the need to manually restore the diagram version. This saves time and greatly simplifies your work. You can run reports at any time, which is important for long-term projects that started with an archived process version.


Please note that reports do not explicitly indicate whether the version is archived.

Change of report templates for add-ons

Administrators now have full control over the change of add-on-provided report templates.


Please be aware that the customization options for add-on templates may differ from the standard ones. Changing templates can impact the functionality of these reports.

Converting timestamps for reporting and exporting

The time zone of a logged-in user is now considered when creating reports and exports to ensure that the timestamps refer to the same reference time zone as in the user interface.

Additional content language

Persian can now be enabled as a content language in the administration.


Method for modeling in attributes

The standard method has been updated to faciliate the transition to modeling resources and satellites within attributes, if you are considering this innovative approach. The default method now includes predefined relationship attributes that can be activated in activities. Additionally, an alternative symbol has been added to indicate that there are resources that are not graphically visible on the modeling interface.

The following attributes are available in the standard method:

· A - Responsible role(s)

· C - Contributing role(s)

· I - Role(s) to be informed

· Supporting application(s)

· Required input(s)

· Produced output(s)

· Risk(s) Occurring

When these relationship attributes have a value, an icon is displayed within the alternate activity symbol, drawing attention to the specific attribute.


Please note that we recommend making any necessary changes to the method either after training or by requesting us to make the customization. The configuration may not be suitable for inexperienced users. To customize your method, access to the BIC Method Editor is necessary.

Validation of properties of assigned objects

The properties of objects within a diagram can now be validated using OCL in validation.


Please note that the default validation does not contain a rule that uses this possibility. To customize the validation rules, you need access to the BIC Methods Editor.

Existing functions available in the new user interface

Manage repositories in the administration of the new user interface

In the new user interface, repository management has been moved to Administration. You can find all existing repositories there and edit and delete them. Deleting a repository has been provided with an additional security confirmation prompt to minimize the risk of accidentally deleting it and losing valuable data.

Currently, the list of repositories does not include repositories that have access restrictions set that exclude the administrator. In future versions, administrators will be able to view and manage all repositories. However, they will not have direct access to the contents of a repository if access restrictions prohibit it.

Printing with individual print settings

The print settings can now be customized in the diagram options. All print options that were available in the old user interface are still available.


Intermediate Timer-Events

Designers can now define intermediate timer events, enabling fine-tuned control over case progression. This feature allows you to specify a waiting time, ensuring that your cases pause for the defined duration. This precision enhances process orchestration and helps you optimize your case management.

Data Mapping in Service Task

When configuring a service task, you can now set it to ignore the response. This additional control prevents the automatic mapping of response bodies to process variables, enabling you to customize the handling of service task responses according to your specific needs.

Service Task Response Handling

When using a service task , the response is now automatically stored in a process variable named “_response.”. This variable provides access to the header of the response, allowing for greater flexibility in handling and utilizing the data in subsequent process steps.

Enhanced Task Monitoring

In this release, we’ve made it easier for case managers to track the tasks by introducing the ability to view open tasks organized by assignee. This feature simplifies task management and provides clear visibility into assignments, making it more convenient to manage and prioritize work.

File Fields in Form Editor

When configuring forms, you can now add a file field, providing you with additional customization options for handling files within your processes. This enhancement empowers you to tailor file-related configurations to meet your specific requirements, making form design more versatile.

Enhanced File Upload Experience

When interacting with file uploads in forms, users will now see a visual representation of the uploaded file’s name. This feature enhances the user experience by making it easier to identify and manage uploaded files.

Integrated Browser Viewer

You can now open PDF files directly in the integrated browser viewer, allowing you to quickly view file content without the need to download. This feature saves time and improves accessibility, making it easier to access and review files within your processes.

Full Text Search for Case Names

Users can now perform comprehensive full-text searches in the case list, enhancing your ability to find and access specific cases quickly. This feature streamlines case discovery, saving you time and effort in navigating your cases.

Case and Task List Sorting

Users now have the option to sort the task list and the case list, enabling efficient management and prioritization. With this feature, you can quickly identify and focus on the most critical tasks or cases at hand.

Access Control

Access control has been refined in this release to provide more tailored permissions. Please note that with Version 7.12, it’s essential to assign the specific ProcessApp roles to your users. These roles are now checked for compliance, and proper role assignment is crucial to ensure a seamless and secure experience with BIC Process Execution:

  • ProcessApp Creators now have exclusive access to execution editors, granting greater control over process execution and refinement. In previous versions, all authors had the ability to configure tasks in Process Execution Editors.

  • ProcessApp Creators can seamlessly view and edit process variables directly in the studio stage, streamlining ProcessApp development and customization.

  • Creating new instances now requires the ProcessApp User role, giving you greater control over different stages in your processes.

  • Task assignment and work can only be carried out by ProcessApp Participants. This helps maintain clear responsibilities and ensures that only authorized users can interact with tasks.

  • The admin area is now exclusively accessible to ProcessApp Administrators, ensuring the secure and efficient administration. It’s worth noting that a BIC Design Administrator can no longer access the administration area in BIC Process Execution.

Gateway Task Assignment

Tasks created at gateways are now automatically assigned to the corresponding lane, providing more effective responsibility allocation. This feature simplifies task management, ensuring that tasks are consistently assigned to the right team or individual.

Version 7.11.0

New Features

Set validation scope of languages for mandatory attributes

Administrators now have more control over the validation of mandatory language-dependent text attributes during publishing workflows. With this update, administrators can now specify whether these attributes should contain a value in any content language, a value in the enabled default content language, or a value in all enabled content languages. These settings apply to new workflows from the beginning, while ongoing workflows keep their existing settings. This configuration can only be set in the new user interface administration.

Improved notifications for editorial releases and favorites

In this release, we have made adjustments to the default behavior for scope e-mails in editorial releases and notifications for updated favorites. By default, the scope will no longer receive notifications about changes when an editorial workflow is initiated. However, users still have the option to send scope e-mails by selecting the mail sending feature in the workflow start dialog.

Similarly, in the new user interface, we have updated the default behavior for change notifications related to newly marked favorites. By default, we will no longer send change e-mails for newly marked favorites. Instead, users are now required to actively subscribe to receive change notifications for their favorites. Change e-mails will continue to be sent for favorites marked in the old user interface.

It is important to note that we will continue to send change notifications for existing favorites to facilitate a smooth transition to the new default behavior. Users can manage their change mail subscriptions, including subscribing and unsubscribing, on their myBIC page within the new user interface.

Favorite catalog lists

In the new user interface, we have introduced a new feature that allows users to mark lists in the catalog as favorites. Once marked a catalog list as favorite, this lists will conveniently appear as tiles on the user’s myBIC page, providing easy access to their preferred catalog items. We do not send change notification e-mails when a favorite catalog list is updated. Additionally, at present, there is no explicit subscription option available for these updates.

It is important to note that the catalog favorites feature is exclusively available in the new user interface. If you are using the old user interface, you will not find the Catalog Favorite tile on your myBIC page, and you will not be able to mark a catalog list as a favorite in the catalog of the old user interface. Furthermore, Administrators cannot set a catalog favorite as a myBIC configuration for their organization.

Alternative to the graphical modeling of resources

We have introduced a new feature that allows you to model the relation between resources and activities within the activity attributes. Once you have prepared your method accordingly, you can select a catalog entry in the corresponding activity attribute or directly create a catalog proposal from the suggestion list. This automatically establishes the configured relationship between the selected catalog entry and its activity.

This alternative approach to graphical modeling offers many advantages. For example, the resources of an activity no longer need to be arranged graphically, and existing processes can be more easily maintained throughout their lifecycle. Readers see the resources in a more natural representation and do not need to learn a specific notation to understand the process.

Please note that this new capability needs to be activated in your method and is not available automatically. Before enabling this feature, we recommend checking its impact on your modeling conventions. Currently, the functionality of this new modeling option is still limited. Version comparison is not yet optimized for this new approach, and validation needs to be extended. However, these limitations will be improved shortly.

Save simulation parameters and continue working with them

We have optimized the simulation to enhance usability. From now on, you can assign individual names to simulation scenarios, enabling better navigation among different scenarios. Additionally, you can now save the entered parameters of a scenario and continue working on them later if needed. These saved scenarios are also visible to other simulation users, promoting collaboration.

Please note that scenario names cannot be changed afterwards and that scenarios saved in new diagram versions will no longer be available if the previous diagram version has been archived.

Existing features available in new user interface

Rename personal favorites on myBIC

On your myBIC page, you can now rename diagram, catalog list, and search result favorites using the context menu of each respective tile. Renaming does not affect the content of the personal favorite but exclusively contributes to better user clarity. The changes made apply only to the active content language.

Please note that standard favorites defined by the administrator cannot be renamed.

Process Execution

Filter Facet Date Range Options

We are excited to introduce a brand-new feature that enhances your task and case management experience. As a user, you now have the power to conveniently filter your lists of tasks and cases based on specific date ranges for due dates. This means you can easily narrow down your workload and focus on the tasks that matter most within your desired timeframe.

Task Status Monitoring

We have added a task status monitoring feature that displays the status of your open tasks. This means you will have quick and easy access to see how your tasks are progressing without having to dig through details. Stay informed and in control with this new addition.

Global Variable Management

We are thrilled to announce that users can now use global variables in their processes. This powerful addition allows you to create more dynamic and adaptable workflows, utilizing variables that can be accessed throughout your processes.

We have also rolled out a handy enhancement that gives you more control over your application’s configuration. You now have the ability to delete global variables that are no longer needed. This helps keep your application clutter-free and ensures you’re utilizing resources efficiently.

Process Enhancement - Task Start Restrictions

Authors and users working with ProcessApps, this one is for you. We’ve added a feature that allows authors to define restrictions on manually starting tasks. This means you can have better control over your process flow, ensuring tasks are initiated only when appropriate. This enhancement provides a more streamlined and efficient process.

Process Enhancement - Skip Case Creation Start Form

We are all about optimizing your workflow. Authors, we heard you! You can now define that the case creation start form will be skipped. By skipping this form, you gain the advantage of creating a specific form as the first task in a process. This opens up possibilities for delivering a tailored and engaging user experience right from the start.

Seamless Navigation to BIC Process Design

Users can now seamlessly jump from their ProcessApp to the corresponding diagram in BIC Process Design. This feature enhances collaboration and ensures a smoother transition between design and implementation.

Base64 Encoded File Transfer

Need to send files as part of your JSON request? We have got you covered. With this new feature, users can now send files as base64 encoded strings in JSON request bodies. This simplifies the process of sharing files and streamlines data integration across your systems.

Starting Timer Event Option

We have tidied things up to ensure a clean and user-friendly experience. You will notice that when a process has a starting timer event, this event will not appear as an option during manual process initiation. This design decision emphasizes the automatic triggering nature of timer events, ensuring a more intuitive and efficient user experience. This subtle adjustment helps maintain clarity in your process options.

Version 7.10.0

New Features

Relationships between catalog items

We’ve enhanced the analysis capabilities for catalog items by adding relationships to other catalog items in the occurrences lists of the catalog. The new user interface catalog now includes a comprehensive list of all assignments of a catalog item to other catalog items, making it easier to analyze relationships between items. In a separate panel, you can view all catalog items to which the selected item has been assigned. By clicking on a listed catalog item, you can access more details about that item.

If you’ve already assigned a catalog item to another item (e.g., you’ve assigned a person as the author of a document), you can immediately see the assigned item in the occurrences list.

Switch stage and repository in top bar

We have added two new features that make it easy for you to switch between different stages and repositories while working in the new user interface. The active stage and repository you are working on are now always displayed at the top of your screen. This allows you to quickly switch between the different stages and repositories, navigate between them, view the contents, and keep track of the stage and repository you are currently working in. Both features are available in the stage- and repository-specific areas, such as diagram list, catalog, or central search.


Users can only select stages that they have access to. Since Readers have access only to the Publication stage, they do not see the stage switch at all.

Reassign the connection between symbols

We’ve made modeling easier by enabling the reassignment of connections between two symbols. To reassign a connection, simply drag it from the original symbol and drop it onto the desired new symbol. It’s important to note, however, that the new symbol must allow the connection for the edge to be successfully reassigned.

This new feature streamlines the modeling process and allows for more efficient editing and updating of diagrams. With the ability to reassign connections quickly and easily, users can make changes to their diagrams with ease without the need to redraw entire connections of the diagram.

Session lifetime reminder

In the new user interface, users now receive a session lifetime reminder 5 minutes before they are automatically logged out. This feature allows users to refresh their session without the need to log in again, ensuring uninterrupted work.

Improvements in process simulation

We have added new functionalities for customers who have licensed our simulation component. They can now view the resource utilization of a simulation run as a bar chart in the Charts tab, in addition to the Heatmap tab. Furthermore, simulation results can be exported as a CSV file, allowing for easy analysis of the results in other applications. Please note that all KPIs are listed in the CSV file with varying levels of granularity, which may require adjustments to fit your specific needs.

Furthermore, it is now possible to enable the simulation component in Public Cloud systems. If you are interested in utilizing the simulation component and your system is hosted in a Public Cloud environment, you can now benefit from this functionality. However, please note that an additional license is required for the simulation component.

Additional validation rules for governance attributes

We’ve added new validation rules to the validation hub that help you keep track of the maintenance of governance attributes. The validation hub will show you if a diagram has no assigned responsible person, if the diagram’s scope hasn’t been maintained, if the valid-to date is earlier than the valid-from date, or if the valid-to or valid-from date is in the past. You can customize the rules that are applied or deactivate them entirely, according to your preferences. Note that this is done in the BIC Method Editor.

Additional resubmission decision “End task and inform Governance participants”

The resubmission task has received an additional decision option called “End task and inform Governance participants”. This option is designed to streamline the resubmission process and make it easier to manage tasks. When a task assignee selects the “End task and inform Governance participants” option, they’ll be prompted to enter a comment explaining why the task is being closed. Furthermore, the governance group will be automatically notified of the decision, ensuring that all parties involved are kept up to date with the task’s progress. This feature is particularly useful in cases where a decision may not be required or if a task can be closed without further action.

Switch currency in process costs/simulation report

The Excel-based process costs/simulation report now includes support for Dollar as a currency. Users can conveniently switch between currencies within the Activities worksheet. Please be aware that the default currency in your method is Euro, but it can be easily modified in the BIC Method Editor.

Existing features available in new user interface

New design for top bar, menu, and category explorer

We have implemented major redesigns and added new functionalities to the category explorer, menu, and top bar. The category explorer is now easily expandable by clicking on the repository bar besides the diagram list and can be collapsed with the repository or collapse icon at the edge of the category explorer. The edge of the category explorer can also be used to broaden the category explorer for easy access to even deep category structures.

The menu on the left side and the top bar have been reworked. The menu is collapsible and can still be used for navigation, with icons representing menu entries available in the collapsed state. Users can now access the most important profile settings in a card by clicking on the profile icon. To adjust further settings, the “open complete profile” button needs to be clicked. Additionally, search fields for diagrams, catalog items, and governance workflows have been moved to their respective filter sections. These improvements provide a more streamlined user experience and easier navigation within the application.

Select any diagram version for comparison to see changes

The version of a diagram open in the content area in a stage can now be compared with any version from different stages to see the changes between them. Administrators, Editors, and Authors can choose between the Public Workspace, Preview, and Publication, and select a diagram version from these stages for comparison with the version currently opened in the content area. Readers can only see the comparison with the latest version in the Publication and cannot select any other stage or chart version. Reviewers have only access to diagram versions in Preview and Publication.

Import and export diagram archives, BPMN files, and categories

Diagram archives, BPMN diagrams, and categories can now be imported from the context menu of the repository and category, as well as from the options panel of an opened category. To export a diagram, you can access it from the diagram list via the context menu of the diagram or from the options panel of the diagram’s details page. Category import and export options can only be accessed from the context menu of a category.


Please note that the repository import and export options are only available to Administrators and will be located in the administration area of the new user interface. This functionality is currently not available and will be added in upcoming versions.

Depublish catalog items and diagrams

We’ve added the depublication feature, which allows published catalog items and diagrams to be removed from the Publication. The depublish option can be found in the options panel on the details page of the catalog item and diagram, as well as on the list view.

Both Administrators and Editors have the ability to initiate an editorial depublication as well as a depublication that requires approval. Authors, on the other hand, are only able to depublish diagrams and catalog items using an approval workflow.

Publish a category

Administrators and Editors can now publish categories from the Public Workspace. This option is available in the context menu of a category and triggers the publication workflow for all subordinated diagrams, including those in sub-categories. We’ve added a confirmation dialog that requires the user to enter the category name before the publication can be confirmed. This ensures that the user is intentionally publishing the correct category and prevents accidental publication.

Create, rename, and delete a category

Categories can be created, renamed, or deleted by Administrators, Editors, and Authors in Public Workspace.

Cut and paste categories and diagrams

Diagrams and categories in Public workspace can now be cut and pasted into a different category in the same repository. Please note that a cut diagram or category cannot be pasted to a different repository.

Import and update catalog items

Administrators and Editors can now import and update catalog items using the process warehouse report for catalog items. To import items, simply filter the catalog by entity type and set the content language to the language of the items being imported. This will automatically determine the entity type and language for the import.

Translate catalog items

We’ve introduced a new translation mode for catalog items in the Public Workspace catalog. This feature is activated after applying a filter for a specific entity type, and you can further refine the list of catalog items to be translated by applying additional filters or a search term. The translation mode displays all language-dependent attributes of a catalog item and provides a column for each content language defined in your tenant. The first column in the translation mode represents the active content language and remains visible as you scroll through other language columns. Administrators and Editors can translate all catalog items, while Authors are only permitted to translate catalog items to which they have been assigned as an Author.


This feature is not available on small resolution devices.

Reorganize unused catalog items

Administrators and Editors can reorganize the Public Workspace catalog to delete catalog items that are no longer needed (not referenced in diagrams or attributes). This feature is activated after applying a filter for a specific entity type. We have improved this feature by adding a confirmation dialog that requires the user to enter the entity type name before the reorganization dialog can be confirmed. This ensures that the user is intentionally deleting the correct entity types and prevents accidental deletion.


This feature is not available on small resolution devices.

Approve or reject catalog suggestions

Administrators and Editors can now make decisions about catalog items either directly from the catalog list or by accessing the options on the details page of a catalog item. You can use the “Only show suggested” filter to view catalog suggestions and determine which items need a decision. Once a catalog suggestion is approved, it can no longer be modified during the modeling process. Conversely, if a suggestion is rejected, the object will remain in the diagram or attribute as a standalone object without any connection to the catalog.

Publish catalog item from catalog list

In addition to the option to publish a catalog item in the options panel on the details page, catalog items can now also be published from the context menu of a catalog item in the catalog list.

Process Execution

Monitoring dashboard now available for running cases

We have added a monitoring dashboard next to the case list. This dashboard provides first metrics of all running cases, including those that are on time, overdue, and have no due date. This is the first step towards providing various metrics for instances.

Export feature enables quick and easy process data analysis in BIC Process Mining

The application now supports exporting an event stream as an Excel file. This file can be easily used for analyzing instances in process mining tools, such as our own product, BIC Process Mining. Exporting event streams as an Excel file allows administrators to quickly and easily analyze process data and identify areas for improvement. It also makes it easier to share process information with other stakeholders, such as process owners or auditors.

Improved form fields with dynamic options using process variables for flexible choices

Previously, single and multiple-choice fields in forms could only provide static values. Now, you can use a process variable to provide dynamic options. The ability to use process variables for dynamic choices in forms makes it easier to maintain and update forms as business needs change. It also allows greater flexibility in the types of choices that can be offered to users.

Skeleton screens added for improved user experience

Using skeleton screens helps to improve the perceived performance of the application by providing users with visual feedback that content is loading. This can help to reduce a users frustration and improve the overall user experience.

Dynamic due dates for process tasks

We have renamed the “Process time in days” attribute to “Due Date” attribute for activities. You can still use numbers to provide the number of days for performing an activity. Additionally, you can use date variables from the process to set the due date for a task. The ability to use date variables from the process to set due dates for tasks makes it easier to manage and track task deadlines. It also provides greater flexibility for users, as they can set due dates based on the specific needs of their process.

The reminder emails that inform users about due tasks now include tasks that were assigned within the last day. This helps users organize their work more efficiently. Including newly assigned tasks in reminder emails helps users stay on top of their work and prioritize their tasks more effectively. It also helps to reduce the risk of tasks being missed, which can improve process efficiency.

Prediction of upcoming tasks based on previous completed cases

The application now displays an automatic forecast for instance if historical data is available. Based on past instances for a process version, the application shows the most likely next steps in an instance. The automatic forecast feature helps users anticipate upcoming tasks and plan their work more effectively. This can help to reduce delays and bottlenecks in the process and improve overall process efficiency.

Restriction of task completion for synchronous call activities to administrators only

Previously, users could finish call activity tasks manually before the subprocess was finished, which could cause problems. Restricting the complete action to administrators for synchronously started call activities helps to prevent users from inadvertently causing problems in the process by prematurely completing tasks. This will help to improve process accuracy and reduce the risk of errors.

New Features

Analyze views of published diagrams

All user roles, except Reader, can now analyze views of published diagrams. When you open the publication in the new user interface, you will find the “Diagram views” filter in the filter area to filter a range of values of views. If you want to see the number of views of a particular diagram, you can find the exact number of views in the system attributes of the diagram.


Evaluation starts after installation of this version. Logins before installation cannot be evaluated.


Views in the old and in the new user interface are all counted.

Analyze user logins in the administration

In the administration of the new user interface you now have the possibility to analyze user logins. The logins are summarized per month and are listed for the past 12 months.


Evaluation starts after installation of this version. A login before installation cannot be evaluated.


Currently you will find only this entry in the administration of the new user interface. In upcoming versions, you will be able to access other administration options as well.

Export workflow tasks to Excel

In the Governance Cockpit of the new user interface, users with the appropriate user role (Administrator or Editor) can now export all workflow tasks to Excel. You can use the search or the filters to determine the workflows that should be exported to Excel.


If you do not filter the workflow list and thus export all workflows including their tasks, then the generation of the Excel file may take a long time.

Waypoint of edge trajectories can be set while dragging

If you want to create the sequence flow between two symbols on the modeling interface, then you can set the waypoints directly when dragging to define the flow. To do this, click once on the edge in the mini symbol palette at the output symbol to be able to set the manual sequence flow. If you want to set a waypoint, click with the left mouse button on the desired position. The manual flow will end when you click on the target symbol. The manually drawn sequence flow is considered by the layout assistant and is not changed.

Create catalog proposals in assigned attributes

You can now create a catalog suggestion directly in an assigned attribute if the desired catalog entry does not exist yet. The configuration of the attribute determines for which object type you can create a catalog suggestion. If several object types are provided for an attribute, you can choose between these object types.

Automatically check language-dependent mandatory attributes on publication

If a language-dependent mandatory attribute is assigned to a diagram, then it is checked whether the mandatory attribute has a value in the default language of your system (can be configured by the administrator), when the publication is started. If the standard language does not contain a value, the publication will be rejected. All other languages of your system will not be checked.

Automatically check mandatory attributes when publishing catalog entries

When the publication workflow for a catalog entry is started, it is checked whether all mandatory attributes have a value. Please consider for language-dependent mandatory attributes that only the set standard language is checked (analogous to the publication of diagrams).


Classification as a mandatory attribute is applied to the attribute definition and is not dependent on the context (diagram or object attribute). For example, if you have classified the description as a mandatory attribute, then it will now check for diagrams and objects if a value exists in the default language of their system.

Publishing of governed catalog entries in diagrams during diagram publishing

If you use a governed catalog entry in a diagram that is not yet published, the governed catalog entry is published as a draft with the diagram so that the diagram publication can continue without releasing the approving catalog entry first. The maintained attribute values of the catalog entry are not available in the publication until it is released.

Switch analysis data in the Governance Cockpit

In the Analysis tab of the Governance Cockpit of the new user interface, you can now easily switch between your repositories to change the data basis of the evaluations. If you have only created one repository in your system, the selection option is deactivated.

Create your own Word-based reports in administration

Administrators can now create their own reports and define Word-based report templates for them. With this feature, you can create your own reporting scenarios or offer existing report templates in different variations.

Change report templates for the manual with assignments report

In the administration area all report templates of the manual with assignments can be downloaded as a ZIP file to adapt the report templates to your needs. After adjusting the templates, you have to save all report templates again in a ZIP file to be able to upload the customized report templates. Please read the corresponding chapter in our documentation beforehand and keep the downloaded ZIP file, because the default templates cannot be restored.

Monitor licensing status in user report

The user report has been revised and now keeps the group and role membership of users in separate spreadsheets. In addition, you will now find an overview of purchased and used licenses in the user report. On the first spreadsheet you will find an aggregated overview as table and diagram.

Manage BIC Process Execution Roles in administration

In the user management, you can assign BIC Process Execution roles to users. Users can have multiple roles at the same time.

Extension of the Customer Journey Map

In the Customer Journey Map (CJM), you will now find alternative symbols for the Touchpoint, Customer Step and Journey Stage. Additionally, the Document, Application and Backstage Process symbols have been added so that you can model the Customer Journey in more detail and do not have to maintain this information in attributes.

“Decomposition” is now called “Subprocess” for activities

The “Decomposition” attribute on activities has been renamed to “Subprocess”.

Existing features available in new user interface

Central search

The central search can be used to search for catalog entries, diagrams, or modeling objects in diagrams at the same time. You can use the expert search or save a search query as a favorite. After the search shows results, you can use the filters to further narrow down the search results. When you save a search query as a favorite, it is saved on your MyBIC page and you can navigate directly to your search query from the MyBIC.

Category tree

On the diagram list, the category tree is now available for navigation. If you use filters on the diagram list, then the selected category is also used as a filter so that you only see hits that are in the category or subcategories.


With the introduction of the category tree, the appearance of subcategories in the diagram list has been removed for high screen resolutions.


If you are accessing from an end device with a small screen resolution, then the embedded categories are still available for navigation. The category tree, though, will then not be offered for navigation.

Comparison of the current version with the direct predecessor version

In the new user interface, you can compare the active version in a stage with the direct previous version. Removed and added symbols are shown, as well as objects whose attributes have been changed. If the attributes of an object have changed, then you can compare the difference in tabular form.


You can currently run the version comparison only on the previous version. In future versions, you will be able to select another version of the diagram for comparison

Deputies can take over tasks from the task owner

In the task management of the new user interface, you can take over and execute deputy and group tasks.

Number of tasks in the menu

In the new user interface, the number of your own open tasks is shown as a badge on the menu entry. Substitute tasks and group tasks are not counted.

Perform tasks directly on the diagram or catalog entry

If you click on a task in your tasks, you will be directed to the diagram or catalog entry where you can perform your task.

Diagrams can be published

Users with the appropriate user role can start publication of a diagram on the diagram list and detail page of a diagram in public workspace.

Catalog entries can be deleted

In the catalog of the new user interface, you can now delete catalog entries and suggestions from corresponding user roles.

Labeling of catalog proposals in proposal lists

Non-accepted catalog entries are marked as catalog suggestions in suggestion lists.

Automatic search for keywords

You can click on a keyword to perform a search for the keyword.

Process Execution

New development of the process execution

With the version 7.9 the calculation of the process execution was substantially revised and accelerated. This has resulted in a higher reliability of process execution. Unfortunately, this improvement made it necessary to temporarily remove the forecast of future tasks. The forecast will be available again in the next version of BIC Process Execution.

BIC Process Execution also allows the execution of processes where no conditions were specified at sequence flows after gateways. Until now, the decision of these gateways was integrated into the task immediately before the gateway. This procedure was not always reliable and predictable for the user. With the new version, gateways where no conditions were specified now become active tasks for the task creator. The user is thus prompted by an explicit task to make a decision for the further process flow.

In processes that have multiple start events, it was previously necessary to start the case after creation. With the new version the creator of the process gets a task to decide with which event the case should be started. In this way, the process can no longer be simply overlooked.


Running cases must be terminated before updating to version 7.9. Unfortunately, it is not possible to migrate running cases to the new version 7.9. All processes that have not yet been finished will be automatically archived when updating to version 7.9.

Enhancements in the form editor

The form editor now provides a field that supports the selection of users and user groups during process execution. This makes it even easier to dynamically assign roles in the process to users or user groups.

Selection fields in the form editor were previously simple texts. These now optionally support a key. So you have the possibility to use the key e.g. in formulas and don’t have to use the display text.

Enhancements in the REST editor

The REST editor now allows to send configuration files as binary. This form of REST call is necessary e.g. when using MS-Sharepoint to upload a file.

In addition, more HTTP methods (e.g. HEAD, PATCH) are now available in the REST configuration. This allows to cover a wider range of API calls for external systems.

CI configuration in BIC Process Execution

BIC Process Execution now also adopts the CI configuration from BIC Process Design to achieve a consistent web presence of both products in the organization.

Filter in the case and task list

The case list of a ProcessApp and the task list can now be filtered. The first filter available here is the owner or creator of the case and the ProcessApp to which a task belongs. More filters will follow in the next version.

Group tasks in the process

Group tasks can now also be claimed directly within the case. If the group task is not assigned to anyone yet, a button “Assign to me” is displayed. This eliminates the need to navigate to the task list to take ownership of the task there.

More compact task list

The task list has been redesigned to provide a more compact view that allows you to see more tasks on one page.

Changed display of tabs

The tabs in different areas of the application have been unified and show the name of the tab in addition to an icon.

Version 7.8.0

New Features

Governance Analytics

We extended the Governance Cockpit of the new user interface with an analytics tab. There you can display the most important information aggregated in charts and get an even better overview of your diagrams and catalog items.

Various evaluations are available to analyze your governance:

All diagrams or catalog items of a repository

The two evaluations show you the number of diagrams or catalog items per stage and offer you the possibility of drilling down on the aggregated view to get to the detailed view.

Upcoming diagram or catalog item resubmissions

The evaluations give you an outlook of how many diagrams or catalog items become invalid in which month so that a check of their validity is necessary. The outlook covers the next 12 months. The reminder interval for resubmissions is not considered here.

Finished publications of diagrams or catalog items

The evaluations present the past publications of diagrams or catalog items within the last 12 months and summarizes them per month.

After updating to the current version, it may take some time until all the data is available in the evaluations.

Resubmission and repository filter in the Governance Cockpit

In the Governance Cockpit, you can now filter for diagram or object resubmissions as well as for workflows originating from certain repositories. Both filters are available in the new and old user interface.

Bulk publication of catalog items

In the new user interface, you now have the option of publishing several catalog items at the same time. The function is in the options panel if you are in the catalog on the catalog list. If you select bulk publication, BIC Process Design pre-filters the catalog list so that you can only select catalog entries that can be published. Each entry is displayed with a checkbox. As soon as you have selected several entries, you can start the bulk publication for these catalog entries.

Please note that for each selected catalog entry a publishing workflow is initiated, and tasks and notifications are triggered (depending on the release type).

Document stamping with language localized attribute values and dynamic date values

If you publish your documents in BIC Process Design, then you can use document stamping to include values from governance attributes in the document. We have extended the function so that you can now also use the values of language-dependent text and enumeration attributes. It is necessary that you configure the intended language in the document beforehand.

Furthermore, you can now leave the “Valid from” date empty and use it in the stamping. If you have subscribed to the Extended Approval Package, you have the possibility to use the date values in the stamping that are set when the workflow is executed.

Please note the necessary preparation to stamp attribute values in a published document.

Configure cut process image in Word reports

In Word-based reports it is now possible to include a process as a cut graphic instead of an uncut graphic. To do this, you must first adapt the corresponding template by exchanging the placeholder for the graphic. After that you need to set the number of pages to be used to cut the process in the print settings of the process. The print settings are also applied to the print function.

Additional validation possibilities via OCL

We extended the validation possibilities and give you the opportunity to …

  • … check the values of diagram attributes.

  • … double check date values against the current date.

  • … double check date values against defined intervals.

  • … classify rules as blocker to prevent the check-in in case of a violation.

Please note that OCL rules are configured in the method editor. Currently, none of these options is applied in a validation rule in the standard method.

Pre-configured report scenarios in the Process Matrix report

We have extended the Process Matrix report with common reporting scenarios and integrated the existing report as additional pivot matrices. The pre-configured reporting scenarios are:

  • Application usage (per activity and process)

  • Document usage (per activity and process)

  • RACI mapping (per activity and process)

  • Risk occurrence (per activity and process)

  • Diagram metrics (per process)

You specify the scope of the report, i.e., whether a diagram, the diagrams of a category or the entire repository should be included in the report, directly when generating the report. All processes listed in the content area are considered. If essential relationships or objects are not available in the report context, the affected report scenarios remain empty.

User overview as Excel report

Administrators can export a user overview as Excel report in the user administration. In the Excel file you can see the number of licenses used per user role, all users of your system and other details about a user such as name, email, user role, language, and stored user groups. If several user groups have been stored for a user, an entry is created for each user group.

Please note that activated filters or search terms are not considered for the export.

Existing features available in new user interface

Central search

The new user interface gained a central search which helps you to find diagrams, modeling objects and catalog entries.

Please note that the search does not yet include all functions and we will integrate them in the coming versions.

Set a deputy for tasks

Task owners can set a deputy in their profile. This setting could be made in the “My Tasks” area of the old user interface and has been moved to the user profile.

After a deputy has been chosen, all tasks also appear in the “Deputy tasks” list of the deputy and can be taken over, for example, if the task owner is absent.

Remove favorites

Favorite diagrams or search favorites can be removed from your MyBIC page at the corresponding tile. This option was available in the old user interface in the favorites panel above the current repository. Please note that you cannot remove favorites set for you by your administrators. Therefore, these tiles have no context menu.

Change catalog entry to suggestion

If you open the details view of an accepted catalog entry in the catalog of the public workspace, you have the possibility to change the catalog entry into a catalog suggestion in the options.

Please note that catalog suggestions, in contrast to catalog entries, can be changed in the modeling and the changes affect all occurrences.

Process Execution

Task form on your task list

Working on tasks is the main use case you will face in BIC Process Execution. Therefore, we have now enhanced the focus on your tasks and how to work on them. When opening your task list and clicking on one of them, the task form will open in this view as pop-up. You can then work on your task just in the same way as in the task form within the process flow view. When you complete the task, the pop-up closes, and the task is marked as completed in the task list. The option to provide a comment when completing a task is also integrated in the pop-up task form. In this way, it is now possible to edit all your tasks directly within the task list and no longer have to navigate into the process flow.

Remark: The pop-up task form will not include auto generated decisions for gateways without expressions! This is only a backup mechanism. You should always define expressions on the outgoing edges of a gateway. Please check the documentation for the pop-up task form to get more information.

E-Mail and URL as new inputs field for the user form

We have added two new input field types to the user form editor. As an author you can now add an email and an URL field to your user form. The fields provide built-in validation for emails and URLs. As an author you have the option to provide own definitions for the validation of the user inputs.

The URL field supports the URL functions of the browser, such as opening the URL when clicked. The email field also supports the mailto feature so that your local email client will be triggered to open the send email window.

Define default values on your input fields

There are some cases where it is necessary to have a default value on an input field. This can be a number, text, selection, or anything else. As an author you can define a default value that can be a fixed or calculated value and refer to process variables in the case. You can use the same formulas and options as on a formula field. The defined value will be calculated once the task is started. You are then able to change the value before completing the task.

Attachments in automatically sent emails

E-Mails can be sent automatically via send tasks in BIC Process Execution. You can provide all necessary information like the receiver, cc, bcc, subject, and body. Now also attachments will be included in automatically sent emails via send tasks. To add an attachment, you only need to model an input document on a send activity. When a document was uploaded in a step before, this document will be attached to the email. When you want to send multiple attachments, you simply need to model one input document for each attachment on the activity in BIC Process Design.

API key as dedicated authentication option for REST-Calls

We have improved the configuration for the API key authentication. You can now select the API key as authentication type in the connection section of the REST-Call configuration. When you have selected the API key authentication you can provide the name and the value of the API key and select whether to place it in the header or request parameters of the request.

OAuth2 as authentication for REST-Calls

Oauth2 is a common authentication method and provides various authentication workflows. BIC Process Execution now supports the OAuth2 client credentials flow for the REST-Calls in the service tasks. You can provide all necessary information in the editor when you select OAuth2 as authentication type.

Improved error messaging in user form editor

There are some conventions and mandatory fields to configure for a user form. When you try to save a form configuration that contains errors, the system will not allow you to save these settings and will give you feedback on the errors and where they occur. By that you can find and resolve the issues quickly.

Favorites as dedicated ProcessApp Collection

When you are using ProcessApp Collection, you now have a dedicated collection for your ProcessApp favorites. All ProcessApps that you marked as favorite are included in this collection automatically. This collection is shown by default when the ProcessApp Collections are configured. The favorites collection is always shown as the first collection in the ProcessApp Collections view.

“More ProcessApps” Collection to collect unassigned ProcessApps

When you are using ProcessApp Collection, you now have a dedicated collection for ProcessApps that are not assigned to any collection. This collection is shown by default when the ProcessApp Collections are configured. The “More ProcessApps” collection always appears as the last collection in the ProcessApp Collections view.

Edit ProcessApp Collection configuration

If you are an administrator, you can now edit the configured ProcessApp Collections. All settings except the collection ID can be adjusted. If you want to change the ID, you must delete and recreate the collection.

Improved usability in the header configuration of a REST-Call

We improved the usability in the header configuration of the REST configuration for service tasks. Adding new parameters to the header is now more intuitive and predictive. The provided fields are now also saved when not clicking explicitly on the plus icon.

New entry point for editors in the configuration panel of a diagram

When editing a diagram, you now have a new entry point for the BIC Process Execution editors of the different element types in a diagram. In the details section on the right side of the screen, you will find a new option for the editors. In the first step this is a place where you can open the existing editors. In the future, editors will be integrated into the side bar so that you can do the configuration in this place without opening a pop-up.

Redesign of the process flow view

We have updated the process flow view that you see when you open a case. Like this, we provide a better overview of the different tasks and types of activities that have been completed, are active and will be relevant in the future.

Redesign of DMN editor

In the past the DMN editor did not fit the design of the other editors. Therefore, we updated the design to align it and have a consistent UX on overall BIC Process Execution editors. The changes bring a better readability, better UX and add explicit buttons to save and cancel the changes.

Automatic group task assignment

Some cases contain group tasks that can be claimed by a member of these groups. Usually, a user who takes over a task for a group should automatically be responsible for all tasks of the respective case. Therefore, when you claim a group task, the system now assigns all following tasks for this group to you. By that you do not have to claim the tasks on your own.

Only the responsible for a task can now complete this task

In the past, you could complete tasks that were not assigned to you. This was a comfort function that we changed in this release. If you are not the responsible of a task, you cannot work on a task and cannot complete it. The task form is disabled, and the complete button is not shown. When you want to complete the task, you must be the assignee.

Only an authorized user can now delegate a task

Delegation of a task was previously available to all users. This was a comfort function that we changed in this release. If you now want to delegate a task, you must be the assignee, an administrator, or part of the group if it is a group task.

Store multiple-choice selection in an array

Multiple choice fields save the user selection in a process variable with the data type string. To have an easy handling of the selection in expressions, evaluations, etc., this data can now be saved as data type array. As an author you can set the type of storing in the configuration for the multiple choice field. Each field can be configured separately.

Remark: The use of storing multiple choice selection as string is no longer recommended. This functionality is deprecated and will be removed in 2023. Please check your processes and update them in the next months.

New features

Dashboards for diagrams

The new user interface provides a dashboard view for diagrams now. The dashboards evaluate the attributes of your diagrams in donut charts and since they are interactive, you can easily analyze your repository. The dashboard is an alternative view to the diagrams of your diagrams list. If you select pieces in a donut chart and navigate back to the list view, the list will contain exactly the diagrams which match your criteria.

To see dashboards for diagram attributes, you need to select those attributes in the administration. You can apply the same procedure to your self-configured attributes to evaluate them in the dashboards. In addition, these attributes are available as filter options in the diagrams list.

Process Warehouse export includes state of catalog entries

We added the column „Catalog state” in the Process Warehouse export for catalog entries. The values in the column indicate if the respecting entry is an accepted catalog entry or a catalog suggestion.

You can change the catalog state in a Process Warehouse export and import it to accept a large quantity of catalog suggestions or reset accepted entries to suggestions. If you create new catalog entries using a Process Warehouse import and change their catalog state to “APPROVED”, these new entries do not have to be accepted manually in the catalog.

Please note that you should only display the columns of the attributes you would like to update with an import.

Including of graphics to diagrams and modelling objects

You can include graphics as a background of a symbol. For example, this can be helpful if the graphic serves as a navigation element. To do so, you must model and format a navigable object first and then add the graphic.


The formatting options do not show yet that a graphic has been included as background.

Moreover, you have the possibility to paste graphics directly from your clipboard. In the past, the pasting of a graphic had to be done via drag and drop which meant that you had to save it locally to add it.


If you have several items in your clipboard, all items will be pasted.

New catalog design

The design of the catalog in the new user interface has been reworked and adapted to the diagrams view. The dashboards are displayed in a new design which matches the diagram dashboards. The bar charts have been removed in the new user interface since this form of evaluation was redundant.

List of expired catalog entries in publication stage

Until now, BIC Process Design informed about expired catalog entries (“Valid to” date in the past) contained in a diagram via a banner in the new user interface. From now on, those entries are listed in the validation. You can simply click on an entry in the validation to highlight the expired catalog entry in the diagram and easily identify the specific occurrences.

Process Execution

Group ProcessApps in ProcessApp Collections

You can now group your ProcessApps in ProcessApp Collections. You can define your Collections in the BIC Process Execution Administration and create Collections based on departments, areas, topics and any other structure you need. A ProcessApp then can be assigned to one or multiple Collections. The Collections let you group your ProcessApps so that you have a clear structure and can find your relevant ProcessApps even quicker.

Single- and multiple-choice fields as dropdowns

When creating a user form, you can now configure single-choice and multiple-choice fields to be shown as dropdown fields. You do not need to create new input fields to do so. You can simply update your existing input fields and change the radio buttons and checkboxes into dropdowns.

Introducing the user profile

We implemented a user profile area in the application. Here you find your user information, the selection for the content language, and new profile settings. The user profile will include even more features in the future.

Define your deputy who will get your tasks when you are out of office

In the new user profile area, you are now able to configure your deputy and your availability status. Both features in combination ensure that your tasks will be handled even if you are out of office. You can define another user as your deputy and when you set your availability status to “Out of office”, all new tasks assigned to you, will be delegated to your deputy.

When you are back in the office, you set your availability status back to “Available” and all new tasks will be again assigned to you.

Provide hint text for input fields

Some input fields need to provide more information to the user. We already have placeholders to provide information and from now on you can use hint texts for most of the input fields. The hint text will be shown right under the input field. In contrast to the placeholder, the hint text is visible even if there is a value in the input field.

Payload for case creation via REST API adjusted

In BIC Process Execution, you can create new cases for a process via REST call. You can include data for the case, like process variables, the case name, and roles in the payload of the REST call. The structure was a bit different to the structure we accept and the way we handle the payload in the REST calls of service activities. Therefore, we now have aligned this in the case creation API, so that creating the payload is more in common with the rest of the application.


You can use both variants, the old one and the new one. By that you do not need to adjust existing configurations.

Roles are included as process variable

Every case has some process variables that are created automatically when starting a case. Until now these process variables were the case name, creator name, creator email and creation date. We added the functionality that also roles are available when creating a case.

To have a role as a process variable, you must set an identifier on the role. By that the system creates a process variable with the defined identifier as name when creating a new case.

When you have defined a staffing for a role, the process variable contains either the email of the user or the name of the user group.

Copy and paste of symbols between different diagram types and automatic symbol conversion

You can copy single or multiple symbols and paste them into a different diagram type. We automatically change the symbols copied to your clipboard to match the notation of the targeted diagram type and transfer the modeling objects. The object types must be allowed in the target diagram to enable copying and symbol conversion. Prohibited objects will not be pasted and you will receive a note. You can manage object types in the method to allowed entity types in diagram types and set the default for symbol types.

Please be aware of the limitations:

  • The BPMN standard differentiates between start, intermediate, and end events. EPCs only have a generic event which can be used for all circumstances. Therefore, events will not be pasted.

  • When pasting into a BPMN diagram, pools will not be automatically created.

Special retention periods for diagrams and catalog entries

You can assign a special retention period to diagrams and catalog entries for the publication stage, which differs from the general setting in the administration area. Use the governance attribute “Special retention period (in years)” to configure a special retention period to assign an individual retention period in years.

Please be aware that the attribute “Special retention period (in years)” is disabled in the standard method. You need to enable it in your method for productive use.

Declaration for expired catalog entries in published diagrams

When a catalog item is used in a published diagram and its validity period is reached the user will see a banner which informs them about that.

The banner text can be customized if it does not fit your needs, but only for Private SaaS or on-premises installation. Please contact your GBTEC project team.

Exchange symbol color settings

Administrators have the possibility to change the symbol color settings to easily switch between different designs or use predefined symbol color settings. You have the option to download the current symbol color settings in the administration. At the same place you can upload your own symbol color settings for example to use predefined symbol color settings.

Distribution types in the simulation

You now have the possibility to use different types of distributions when using parameters for the simulation. This allows you, for example to specify more precisely the duration of an activity or the incoming of a process instance.

EPC Symbol classified by task type

The EPC symbol for activities now shows an icon to visually identify the task type of the activity. Before that you could choose a task type, but it was not visible in the modeling surface.

Please be aware that already modeled symbols will not automatically change. You need to reassign the symbol in that case.

EPC symbol classified as external

The EPC symbol for roles now switches its color to visualize external roles. Before that you could classify roles as external, but the symbol stayed in the same color.

Please be aware that already modeled symbols will not automatically change. You need to reassign the symbol in that case.

Process Execution

Introducing signature tasks

Some processes contain critical tasks where you, as the task owner, must confirm that you and not someone else performed the task. You can obtain this confirmation with signing tasks. To complete the task, you must first authenticate yourself with your credentials. If the authentication is successful, the task is completed, otherwise the system refuses to complete it. The authentication follows your company’s rules and is even requested when SSO is enabled by default.

Dynamic role assignment

Within a process flow, you can model different roles and store a default assignment for them. With our new feature, you can define which user or user group is responsible for a role during the runtime of a process. To achieve this, you can use different task types and methods. Roles can be assigned wherever process variables can be modified. This can occur, for example, within activities or also at the start when creating an operation from another system via the API interface.

Create cases automatically by timer

You can now define timers on start events. The system then automatically creates cases according to the defined timer. By that you can automate recurring processes and ensure that these processes will not be forgotten. When you have reached a state of full automation of a process, you will not even have to do one manual step.

Setting dynamic due dates on tasks

Tasks often need to be done in a specific time to keep projects and processes on track. Therefore, you can now define a processing time for each task in the processes. When reaching such a task during runtime, the due date will be calculated dynamically. You as assignee can see the due date on the task in the task list and in the case flow overview. By that, the tasks can be completed on time.

Getting reminders for due tasks

By having due dates on tasks, you can ensure that your cases will be handled in a proper time. To keep the task owners up to date and remind them about due and overdue tasks, the system sends reminder emails with a task overview. The tasks are grouped into pending, due today and overdue, so you can get the tasks listed by urgency and work through them.

If you are assigned a task that is already overdue or needs to be completed within the next 24 hours, the system sends a separate email for this task immediately after the assignment.

Every task mentioned in the reminder email contains a link to the task in BIC Process Execution so that you can directly access and work on it.

Perform subprocesses asynchronously

With release version 7.5 we introduced call activities that allow you to refer another process via call activity and by that create a subcase for that process automatically. In that version, the subcase will be processed synchronously. That means that the main case waits for the subcase to be completed to continue with the next steps.

Now you can mark a call activity as asynchronous. By doing so, the call activity task in the main process will be continued instantly when the case for the subprocess was created. The next task is started, and the main case can continue without waiting for the subcase to be completed.

Delete ProcessApp data in Studio and Test stage

When you create a ProcessApp, you usually test it intensively to make sure that everything works as defined. Some process designers duplicate ProcessApps and then work with that version. In the long run, this creates a lot of data that you will eventually no longer need. The Studio and Test environments are automatically cleared of ProcessApp operations when a new version of the process is checked in. Now you have the additional option of deleting the entire ProcessApp in the Studio and the Test environment in order to manually clean up the system.

JavaScript in script tasks

We introduced script tasks with release 7.5 where you can provide Groovy script to the ProcessApp and handle data in script tasks. Now BIC Process Execution is also supporting JavaScript as script language. You can switch between JavaScript and Groovy and will get syntax highlighting and code suggestions for both languages. With JavaScript, you have an easier access to script tasks.

Change case name

The case name is a specification that is also available as process variable within a case. There are use cases where you need to change the case name in a running case and see the change in the case list. We have improved the application there so that this change takes effect in all places where the case name is displayed.

Favourites within the ProcessApp list

The ProcessApp list was separated into “All ProcessApps” and “Favorites”. We have merged these views as a preparation for features that will be available in the next release. When you have marked a ProcessApp as favorite, then you will see the favorite icon on this ProcessApp.

Actions on a ProcessApp

We changed the icons and the access to the functions of a ProcessApp in the ProcessApp overview. Additionally, to the ProcessApp icon there is only the favorite icon left. Other actions like the create case action are now placed in a context menu that can be accessed on the ProcessApp.

Improved error handling on send tasks

Send tasks can be configured to be sent automatically. But there can be an issue e.g., with the email server so that the task cannot be sent and is in an error state. When this happens, this task now becomes a user human task, and you can handle this task manually. The error is shown on this task and you can decide whether to send the task manually or try to send it again automatically.

Automatic email sending when placeholders are missing

Email templates can contain placeholders for process variables. In a generic email, you sometimes add placeholders for variables that are not provided in all cases. For these cases you can now specify the option to set an empty string at this point. In manual send task, you will not be confused by the placeholder any longer. In automatic send task, the system will send the email with an empty string.

Redesigning the task list

We redesigned the task list to provide a better overview of the pending tasks. The task entries now show the information in a more structured way. It also shows the due date for a task if one is set. Additionally, status icons will be shown when a task is in error state or overdue.

Updated application name and favicon

To ensure a consistent look and feel for all products, we have updated the application name and the favicon. Both changes can be seen in the browser tab.

Key features

Easy inserting of a symbol in an existing sequence flow

Symbols can now be dropped on a sequence flow to automatically embed the new symbol in an existing sequence flow. You will see a visual feedback which signals that a symbol can be embedded in a sequence flow.

For example, you can drop an Activity or Gateway on the sequence flow between two other Activities and the new Activity is directly embedded in the sequence flow and connected to the other Activities.

Access to publication archives

Until now the archive export of depublished diagrams or catalog items were provided at the depublication workflow in Governance Cockpit. Users wanting to view an archived version in BIC Process Design needed to download the archive export and import it again.

The archived versions of diagrams and catalog items can now be accessed from the Governance Cockpit. When a diagram or catalog item was depublished, users can access the archived version from the audit trail of the depublication workflow. You will be informed that the diagram or catalog item has been depublished and have the option to open the archive. If you choose to open the archive you will directly see the diagram or catalog item and easily navigate through the different versions. Your Readers won’t be able to access archived versions in publication since the archive access is in the Governance Cockpit, but you can share the URL to the diagram or catalog item with them, if they need to access an archive.

Please note that this is only available in the new user interface.

Linking Governance Workflows to diagrams or catalog items

In the old user interface, it was not possible to navigate from a workflow to a diagram or catalog item which is subject of the workflow. We enabled this navigation in the new user interface where you can now easily navigate from the workflow. The accessing link is located on the audit trail of a governance workflow and leads to the diagram or catalog item in the corresponding stage depending on the current state of the workflow (whether it is pending, rework or closed).

Displaying effective time span of archives

Archives were declared with the time stamp of the archive generation in the old user interface. In the new user interface, archive entries of diagrams and catalog items now display the actual time span in which the archive entry was the active version. This time span may differ from the governance attributes “valid from” and “valid to” since it displays the effective time span and not the set values in those attributes.

With the new declaration it is now easily possible to e. g. identify gaps in publication archives.

Arabic and Polish user interface

BIC Process Design now speaks Arabic and Polish in the new user interface! Both languages could already be chosen as content languages, but our user interface did not support those languages. The language of the user interface is determined by the set browser language. Our online help remains in English when accessing from an Arabic or Polish browser.

Serbian added as content language

We implemented Serbian as content languages, so that processes or catalog entries can be maintained in Serbian. Please note that this does not count for the language of the user interface.

Optimized search in catalog

We deactivated the alphabetical order of search results in the catalog search so that the list of search results is sorted by the relevance of each item. The alphabetical sorting of catalog items is still possible but not on search result list.

Optimization of task summary mail

Delegated tasks are now included in the task summary mail once a day. The task is still directly assigned in BIC Process Design and a toast informs the new task owner about the delegation.

Additional customization capabilities

We extended our customization capabilities so that some attributes can be excluded from being transferred to preview and publication stage. This is helpful if some attributes should not be archived in those stages, e. g. when they are only used in modeling.

We also enabled customization projects to perform validation on the start of publication workflows, so that individual rules can be validated. The workflow continues if the rule evaluation is positive and will be aborted if the rule evaluation is negative. In this manner, we can implement a variety of validations for you, for example to check whether the assigned Author is not also assigned as Responsible or whether the validity period is set correctly according to your governance definition.

Please note that both capabilities are highly individual and that your requirements can only be implemented by customization projects.

Existing features available in new user interface

Declaration of expired content in publication stage

When the validity period of a catalog item or diagram is reached the user will see a banner in publication that the catalog item or diagram exceeds the set “valid to”-date in the governance attributes. If the standard banner text does not fit the wording of your organization, then it can be adjusted for Private SaaS or on-premises systems. Please talk to your GBTEC project team about it.

Abort workflows and delegate tasks

In Governance Cockpit

  • Administrators, Editors, and the initiator of a Governance Workflow can abort running workflows in Governance Cockpit. Simply open the audit trail of a Governance Workflow and you will find the option to abort in the option panel.

  • Administrators and Editors can delegate a pending task of a Governance Workflow to a user in BIC Process Design. Users only need to open the audit trail of a Governance Workflow and click on the Delegation-Button on the pending task to delegate it to another user.

Filter catalog suggestions and access archives

In Catalog, users can now

  • filter the catalog list in Public Workspace for catalog suggestions. Reviewers can filter the catalog list in Preview Stage for catalog items which need an approval.

  • distinguish catalog suggestions from approved catalog items on the catalog list and on the details page of a catalog item.

  • access archived versions of catalog items on the details page of a catalog item. Please note that a catalog item needs the Responsible being set to archive the version of a catalog item. You also need to set a Responsible to access the archived versions.

Process Execution

Introducing call activities in BIC Process Execution

Process designers are now able to include call activities in their processes. With call activities you can refer to other processes and create cases for them. During runtime a sub case will be created automatically when the call activity has been reached. All process variables and roles are transferred to the sub case and are available there. When the sub case is completed, the changes for the process variables will then be handed over to the main case.

Send emails from send tasks automatically

Process designers can already define email template for send tasks, so that users have predefined emails. With this release the designer can mark a send task, so that the email will be sent automatically by the system. The system completes the task when the mail was sent, so that no user interaction is needed in the case.

Write own scripts and run them within script task

It is sometimes necessary to do complex calculations or interactions with process data. Many things can be done with formula fields within user forms. But sometimes this is not sufficient, so designers can now use script tasks for this. As the name already says, designers can write scripts that will be executed during run time. You can use all available process variables within the script, change them and create new process variables that will be available in the following steps of the case.

Define a retention period for your cases

Due to data protection purposes and system cleanups designers can now define a retention period for their processes. The retention period for a case starts when it is completed. BIC Process Execution deletes the case and all its data automatically after the defined period.

Use basic authentication in REST calls

It is best practice to use authentications when running REST calls against other systems. We introduce the basic authentication to extend our REST functionality. Process designers can configure the authentication easily in the REST configuration.

Possibility to handle data objects within user forms

Service tasks and REST are a common and powerful way to get data from external systems. That data is mostly structured as objects. User forms now support data object handling, so that the process designer can directly address attributes in data objects.

Updated administration page as preparation for coming features

The administration only contained the API-key configuration. With the coming releases there will be more things that need to be configured in the administration. That’s why we’ve added a new page as overview of those things as administration entry page.

Mark a Boolean field as mandatory

Process designers can now mark a Boolean field in a user form as mandatory. As a result, a user must check this Boolean field to complete the task. By that you can force the user to actively accept or confirm data, information, etc.

User form editor design improvements

The design of the user form editor was improved. The preview section was increased, and the details section decreased in size. But both sections benefit from the change. The input fields in the details have now a row for their own. By that the size of the fields increases and the user can see even longer inputs.

Improve behavior of environments when deleting cases

User now get more detailed information when a case in the studio and test environment was deleted. Additionally, the user will be redirected to the instance when the case he/she had opened was deleted.

Include case functions in case flow menu

In the flow view of a case there were two menus – one at the top and one at the bottom of the flow. These menus have been merged so that there is only one menu left that contains all menu options from the former ones. It is shown at the top of the flow so that users can access it easily.

Use all output elements as document containers

By now it was only possible to use document objects as container for input- and output documents in BIC Process Execution. We improved the system so that business objects and other containers can be used. The user has now options to upload and download documents on those objects.

Show user error message on wrong REST response HTTP status code

Process designers usually define an expected HTTP status code for the response of their REST calls. When something goes wrong or the system simply returns an unexpected HTTP status code, then the user needs to know what happened. Therefore, BIC Process Execution now shows an error message to provide that information.

Show different start pages depending on user tasks

Different users have a different workload and a different type of work. Some have a lot of tasks in their task list, some have mostly group tasks, and some have most of their time no tasks and only create new cases. To match all those use cases and to improve the usability, we changed the behavior for the starting page when logging into BIC Process Execution. When the user has personal tasks to do, then he/she will see the task list. If there are no personal tasks but group tasks, the user will get the group tasks list. If there are no personal and no group tasks the user will be redirected to the ProcessApp overview to be able to create a new case quickly.

Version 7.4.0

New features

Analyze repository with diagram filters

Up to now it was not possible to filter diagrams for diagram attributes and the only way to achieve filtered lists was to receive the process warehouse export and filter the diagrams in Excel or via the overall search. We now introduce filter for diagrams to analyze your repository. When you open the diagram view in the new user interface you will see the filter panel on the right side to tailor the diagram list. The feature enables you to quickly answer plenty of questions, like

  • What resubmission effort will come up next month?

    Use Valid To filter and set time span to next month

  • Which processes are in my department?

    Use Scope filter and set your department

  • Which diagrams are maintained by me?

    Use Author filter and set yourself as author

  • Which diagrams are in responsibility of a colleague who leaves the company next month?

    Use Responsible filter and set the leaving person as responsible

  • Which are currently in modelling or needs to be reviewed?

    Use State filter and set the desired state

It is also possible to extend your method by custom attributes which then can be used to filter the diagrams. Just add them in the diagram type in your method, maintain the attribute in BIC Process Design and the filter will directly be available.

Apply custom colors to symbols

Administrators can change the symbol colors, namely border color, background color and font color, in the administration without changing the symbol definition in the method. A custom symbol code can be set for almost all symbols and can be directly applied to all diagrams in all stages.

Please note that changes to the symbol colors might have a huge impact on the appearance of the modeled processes in your organization. We recommend to carefully plan, coordinate, and communicate those changes.

Editors are now Governance Cockpit administrators

Until now Administrators where the only ones who could see and manage all governance workflows. This gave them a heavy workload besides their system administration tasks. We enabled Editors to take over the administrative tasks for governance workflows to ease the situation for Administrators. Users with the Editor role now can see and manage all governance workflows. They have the same rights in governance cockpit like Administrators, e.g. delegating or aborting a workflow.

Please note that Editors did not receive any other administrator rights. This feature only allows them to administer workflows.

Resubmission tasks for catalog items

Until now, the responsible or responsible (resubmission) received only an e-mail notification about the upcoming resubmission of a catalog item. We now introduce the resubmission task for catalog items, which is already available for diagrams. When a catalog item is going to be invalid, then the responsible or responsible (resubmission) is assigned to the task. The resubmission workflow for the catalog item is listed in the governance cockpit and the task will appear directly in the user’s task list in BIC Process Design. We will also inform the task recipient in the task summary mail once a day. The resubmission task has the options to extend the validity for 1 year or depublish the catalog item (will be depublished when “valid to”-date is reached).

Please note that it is currently not possible to filter for resubmission workflows in the Governance Cockpit.

Participating Reviewer can access the Governance Cockpit

We introduced in version 7.3 that task owner can track progress of their governance workflows </a>. We kept on improving this feature so that Reviewers can also access the Governance Cockpit in BIC Process Design to track the progress of their governance workflows where they have or had a task.

Resubmission information mail for governance participants

All governance participants (persons assigned to governance attributes) can receive an information mail that a resubmission for a catalog item or diagram has been initiated. This mail serves only for their information and is independent to the resubmission workflows. We also introduced an additional governance attribute “Do not send information mail (resubmission)” to deactivate the mail for a diagram or catalog item so that you can decide whether you want to inform the governance participants or not. This mail gets send per default and the attribute can be configured in the method, e.g. if you do not want modelers to deactivate the mail or if you want this mail to be never send. Please contact us if you have questions regarding the right method configuration.

Please note that the information mail can only be send for diagrams or catalog items published after this version.

Configure granular retention period for archives

Administrators can set the retention period for the publication stage up to 30 years with a yearly interval. The retention period for the public workspace and preview stage can be set up to 365 days with a daily interval. Please consider that changes to the retention period only affect newly created archives and that a newly set retention period does not affect already created archives.

Please note that we limited the archive period for the public workspace and preview stage to 365 days, but we will not change your configuration. When you already configured a higher period before version 7.4, then we will retain this period and convert it to days. When you change the period after the update, then you can only set the new limit for the public workspace and preview stage.

Copy & paste between diagram types

Copying & pasting modelled objects was only possible between the same diagram type until now, e.g. copying an activity from a BPMN diagram and paste it into another BPMN diagram. From now on you can copy a selection of modeling elements and copy them to your clipboard to paste the elements in a different diagram type, e.g. copy a risk from a risk diagram and paste it into a BPMN diagram. The only precondition is that the modeled object (symbol type, entity type and association type) is allowed in the target diagram type. We will remove the modelled objects during pasting if you have modeled objects in your clipboard which are not allowed in the target diagram type while allowed modeling objects are pasted.

Please note that you can configure the diagram types in the method and thereby allow modeling objects in a diagram type which are not enabled in the standard method. Thereby you could extend the transfer of modelling objects between diagram types according to your requirements.

Existing functionalities available in the new user interface

Please note that not all functionalities of the old user interface are yet available in the new user interface. You might miss some functions but be sure that we will transfer all. The new user interface is a work in progress state. We offer you the possibility to get used to the new user interface and give us feedback on it, so that we can keep on improving it.

Adding and editing catalog items

Catalog items can now be added in the new user interface. You can also edit existing catalog items and maintain the attributes. Please note that some catalog features, e.g. deleting catalog items or the catalog re-organization, are not yet available. We are working on the catalog to enable the whole functionality!

Process Execution

Introducing studio, test and production environment

In order to create and test your ProcessApps, you now have two additional environments in BIC Process Execution. We added the studio and test environments to enable authors and reviews to test their ProcessApps without creating testing data on the production environment and mix production and testing data. A big bonus of studio and test environments is that the test cases and data will be deleted automatically when you check in a new version of your ProcessApp. By that you will always have a clean system.

Create case and access BIC Process Execution directly from BIC Portal

You are now able to access BIC Process Execution directly from BIC Portal. You will find a button in the top right corner of the documented processes. As an author in the common stage, you will create a test case in the studio environment and as a reviewer in the review stage, you will create a test case in the test environment of BIC Process Execution in order to test the process quickly. As a “normal” user in the publication stage you will create a case in the public/production stage in BIC Process Execution.

Assign task to case owner as fallback

There are several cases where a task needs to be assigned automatically to a user. That can be an error on a service task, a missing role assignment, etc. To avoid that these tasks will not be recognized, they now will be assigned to the case owner as fallback. The case owner then can see this task in the task list and decide what to do.

Define a conditional expression for the mandatory property of a form field

We have already introduced the conditional expression for the “readonly” and “hidden” property of input fields. You can now define a conditional expression for the “mandatory” property, too.

By that you are now able to create complete dynamic user forms that will react to the process and form data provided by the tasks and users.

Drag & drop form field from the field palette

You are now able to drag & drop a new form field directly from the field palette to the place of the form where you want it to be.

Default id for input fields in user form editor

When you are editing a user form in the designer and adding new input fields to your form, these input field will now get an automatic generated id. By that you are no longer forced to set an id by yourself. But you are still able to change the id to a more user friendly one.

Admins can start any task manually

It is sometimes necessary to start a task which is not the next one in flow of the documented process. Therefore, admins are able to start any task they want.

That function should only be used on an exceptional basis and only by admins who know what this action can lead to!

See datatype of process variables

When you are in the case flow view, you have the option to see all process variables in the “Edit process variables” dialog. In order to evaluate issues with these variables in the process, we added the datatype as information to each variable in this list.

Design improvement Text area

We improved the design of the text area input field to have a better look and feel in the user form.

Design improvement Menu Bar

We improved the design of the menu bar to have a more consistent look and feel over all BIC products.

Dates are shown in the format of your browser language

Dates will now be shown in your local format. The system evaluates the language and format from your browser settings. When you have set British English as language in your browser, the dates will be shown in British English format. When you have set American English as language in your browser, the dates will be shown in American English format. Same behavior for other languages.

Version 7.3.3

New features

Process Execution

REST Configuration editor to define the details of a REST call

As a process designer you are able to do the configuration for the REST call within a dialog. This dialog structures the configuration in three steps. The connection, the request and the response. With that changes the user has a better experience and overview. It is also the basis for more configuration options in order to use REST with all its features.

Configure the header of a REST call

One new feature that we provide in REST calls is the request header. As a process designer you can add additional data in the request header. You can either use static key value pairs, or use placeholders to provide dynamic data from a case as request parameters.

Define a file as request body for a REST call

Sometimes it is necessary to send files and document via REST call to other systems. Therefore you can now configure in the new REST configuration a file that will be send in the request of the REST call.

Receive a file as response in a REST call

When doing REST calls, you always get a response from the system you are calling. This response can contain different data and data types. You can now receive a file as response, map it to an modeled output document and use it in further steps of your process.

Set a conditional expression for the hidden property of a form field

In order to create less complex diagrams and to improve the user experience, a process designer can now configure whether an input field in a user form should be hidden or not on a dynamic basis. Therefore you can define an expression that will be evaluated during runtime and decide on the basis of the output if the field will be displayed or not.

Set a conditional expression for the read only property of a form field

Like the dynamic configuration for the hidden property of a field in a user form, you have the same option for the read only property. A process designer can define an expression do decide during runtime if that field is read only or not.

Version 7.3.0

New features

Archive access for depublished catalog entries

We introduced the archive access for depublished diagrams in version 7.1 and continued our improvements. You can now also access the archived version of a depublished catalog entry in the corresponding depublication workflow in governance cockpit. Like for depublished diagrams, the archive of the depublished catalog entry is stored in the audit trail of the depublication workflow and can be downloaded there. We also enabled the archive access of already depublished catalog entries before this version.

Please note that this feature is only available in the new user interface and that we will also improve this feature in future versions.

Option to delete attachments in all content languages

We introduced localized attachments in version 7.2 and continued to improve this feature. When you uploaded a file or maintained an URL in all content languages, then you can delete those attachments with one click instead of deleting each attachment in all content languages. This reduces the maintenance effort a lot.

Task owner can track progress of their governance workflows

Governance participants who have an open task or had completed a task in a governance workflow can access the workflow in governance cockpit to track the progress of the workflow. You can also see your workflows even though you delegate the task to another user to track the progress of your delegation. All functionalities of the governance cockpit, like searching for a workflow or filtering the list of workflows, can be used.

Please note that reviewers cannot access the Governance Cockpit at the moment.

Alignment of BIC Process Design standard method with BIC GRC

Attribute “Risk category” for Risks

We adjusted the standard method and changed the attribute context from occurrence to entity. This means that the set value now counts for the whole entity and no longer for an occurrence of this entity. We migrated the set values to the entity just in case the values of all occurrences were unique. For all other cases we discarded the value in modeling (public workspace). You might need to set a value again.

Please note that the migration was only executed in public workspace and does not affect the preview, publication, or archived versions.

“Obsolete” flag for Controls

The catalog entry “Risks” has already the option to maintain it as “Obsolete”. We adjusted the standard method so that you can also maintain Controls as “Obsolete”, e. g. when the corresponding Risk is obsolete.

Enhanced OCL custom validation

We enhanced our OCL (Object Constraint Language), so that it now uses the entity instead of its graphical nodes. For example, you can now create a validation rule (in method editor) to check weather an activity inside an application pool is typed as service task. You can also set a more specific validation context for an OCL rule (in method editor), modelling or validation, to define when the rule should be validated (during modelling or when a user check in a diagram).

Hindi and Indonesian added as content language

We implemented Hindi and Indonesian as content languages, so that processes or catalog entries can be maintained in those languages. Please note that this does not count for the language of the user interface.

Do you need to maintain your processes in a content language which is not yet available in BIC Process Design? Then please request the language at our Support team. We will give you a feedback whether we can provide your desired content language.

Administration in a new tab

When you open the administration in the application, then the administration gets opened in a new tab. You can then simply close the administration tab and all changes are saved.

Existing functionalities available in the new user interface

Identity validation for governance tasks

When you are working in the new user interface and your organization activated the re-validation of your identity for governance tasks, this feature is now also active in the new user interface. Task owner are directed to the login screen when deciding upon a governance task to validate their identity.

Process Execution

Create an API key in order to connect to BIC Execution

An API key can now be created in BIC Process Execution. This function enables you to securely connect external systems to BIC Process Execution so that only authenticated systems can access BIC Process Execution via REST call. API keys can be created and deleted in the administration area.

Create new cases via REST call

Cases can now be created from external systems. Therefore, a higher degree of automation can be reached for your processes. Technically speaking a HTTP POST request is sent to BIC Process Execution via a REST call. For a safe authentication, this call must contain an API key, which can be created in the administration area of BIC Process Execution. In addition, the case’s name and process variables can be specified within the request. As soon as the HTTP POST request has been processed, the new case is available in BIC Process Execution and can be worked on immediately.

Search for ProcessApps

If you have many different processes that are made available as executable ProcessApps in BIC Process Execution, it can sometimes be difficult to find the right ProcessApp quickly. To ease this task for you, we have implemented a search function. Simply type in the name or a part of the name of the ProcessApp in the search bar and press enter to filter the ProcessApps.

Mark ProcessApps as favourites

As a user you have usually a couple of ProcessApps you are working with. To have a quick access to these ProcessApps, you are now able to mark ProcessApps as favourites. You can can do this for every app in the ProcessApps view. There you can also switch to the favorites tab in the top right corner.

Calculate data in user forms

User forms are powerful tools to get relevant data from the user during the process flow. But sometimes it is necessary not only to collect the data, but also to do calculations, checks, transformations, etc. To this purpose we have introduced the “Formula” field in the form editor. With that field, you can use different formulas to access and process data within your process instance.

All available formulas can be checked in the documentation of Formula.js.

Create an e-mail template for a send task

You can now create and configure e-mail templates in send tasks via the “Email template editor” in BIC Process Design. Process variables will be replaced during runtime to provide data dynamically for defined placeholders in the e-mail template, such as the recipient of the e-mail. The users who have been assigned to such a task in BIC Process Execution can see the email template in the corresponding task’s form. With a simple click the e-mail template can then be transferred to their local email client for further editing, file attaching and sending.

Create a new case from the process’s case list

Through the usage of a new implemented button the process’s case list you can now create new cases directly for the corresponding process.

User form editor improvements

We implemented some improvements in the user form editor to provide a better user experience when creating a user form.

  • The field type icon is displayed at the right side of a form field to show the user which form fields are already included in the form.

  • The field type name is added to the details header on the right side of the user form editor.

  • The error messages have been updated to provide a clear and more understandable error message.

Process Execution

As an admin or instance owner, I want to set a due date for an instance

When you create a new instance of a process, you can add a due date. You can also add and edit the due date for an instance, when you go to the details of the instance. When you set a due date on an instance, it will be shown in the instance list. If the due date is expired, the entry for this instance will be shown with a red due date in the instance list.

As a user I want to see archived entries in the case list

You can move instances of a process into the archive. When you are on the instance list, you have the option to switch from your active instances to the archive by selecting the archive register at the top of the list. You can switch between the two available registers to show active or archived instances.

When a DMN Task has all input it should be executed automatically

DMN tasks will now be executed automatically, if all input variables are available. The calculation will be done as soon as the task starts and the output will be shown directly.

Version 7.2.0

New features

View diagram archives directly

When a diagram has an archived version, then you can view the archive directly in BIC Process Design. Just select the intended stage (e.g. publication) of the diagram and click on the archive entry! The displayed archive can only be viewed and so some functionalities are not available for the diagram archive. You can still download the archive and import it to use all functionalities.

Please note that this feature is available only in the new user interface.

Language dependent attachments

Attachments are now language dependent. Therefore, uploaded files will be stored in a specific content language. This enables you to provide attachments to users in their language, like you provide process translation in every content language. You can use the translation mode for diagram and catalog items to maintain the attachments for each content language or to gain an overview about the maintained attachments in each content language.

When you do not want to provide attachments in each content language, then you can still maintain only one attachment for each content language. The procedure is then the same as before, just do not uncheck the option to Upload the attachment for all content languages. The option is active per default.

Please note that you might want to rework your attachments for language localization to provide your current attachments in only specific languages.

Path sorting of activities in reports

Activities of a process are now ordered in accordance with their sequence flow in a process when they are enumerated in reports. If gateways or operators are modeled in a process, then we will rely on the maintained probability of the following activity to determine the order if the activities.

Resubmission workflows in workflow list

Resubmission workflows for diagrams and catalog entries now appear in the workflow list (and in governance cockpit of the nw user interface). You can now track the process of a resubmission workflow, delegate a task, or abort the workflow.

Please note that you are not yet able to filter for resubmission workflows.

Summary mail for new tasks

We optimized our task notification. Your task will be directly available in the application, but we will not send you one mail per task each time a new task was assigned to you. We gather all new tasks and summarize them in a single mail once a day (during night).

Edit mode without alternative language

We still provide the fallback language, when a process or catalog item is in public workspace, preview or publication stage. But we do not show the fallback language when you are editing a diagram or catalog item. This adjustment enables you to complete your translation tasks faster and have a clearer overview about missing translations.

Explicit editing of catalog items

We also introduced a check out mechanism to edit catalog items. This mechanism avoids unintended changes to catalog items and allows you to view the fallback language when you only want to view a catalog item in public workspace.

Adjustments of standard method

The customer journey map attribute Key performance indicator is now a multi value attribute, so that you can assign several KPI to this attribute.

Adjustment of layout settings

In the administration area, the list of configurable layouts was reduced so that only diagram types appear for which a process layout can be configured. Those diagram types are EPC, BPMN and VCD.

Quick start guide

When you click on the quick start guide, then you do not receive a file any longer. Instead, you are directing to the quick start guide section in our documentation. If you have replaced our quick start guide file with organization specific files, those files will still be provided, and the users can receive them.

Existing features available in new user interface

Working with workflow tasks

Your workflow tasks go an audit trail, so that you can see the previous workflow steps including all given comments. You can navigate from the task directly to the process or catalog entry or perform the task directly in the task list. If you navigate from a task to a process, you can also perform the task directly on the process.

Searching for diagrams

The diagram search was aligned with known search logic from the old user interface:

  • The list of search hits is no longer alphabetically ordered. The order is determined based on the ranking of a search hit so that more relevant hits are ranked higher.

  • When you search for diagrams, the content of all diagram attributes will be searched now. For example, when you search for a diagram of a certain author you can just type the name to find all related diagrams.

Further improvements

  • Catalog entries can be published from the catalog if you have maintained at least the responsible.

  • The RACI-Matrix can be filtered, e.g., when you want to see only your process role.

Process Execution

  • With the new version the user gets a push notification when a new task is assigned. Thus, each user stays informed about new events even if the application is not directly used at the moment.

  • When a decision in a case was changed, the new tasks are shown directly without the need to press the update button on the gateway. The update button is only shown, if the user current selected task would be vanished.

  • When the process flow is recalculated, the gateway shows a :loading indicator to make ot visible for the user, that the process flow is about to be updated.

  • Only administrators are now able to edit case variables.

New features

Process Execution

  • In the main menu next to the “Tasks” menu item, the user can see how many tasks are assigned to him. This counter also changes immediately when a new task is assigned.

  • The task list is also automatically updated when the status of a task changes or a new task is assigned. This keeps the user up to date while the task list is open.

  • Application systems have a new attribute “Integration link”. Here you can enter one or more URLs that will be used to call other systems. Within these URLs, data from the current process can also be transferred to a third-party system as parameters.

  • The checklist for the process is now recalculated immediately if data changes within the process. Previously, data-based gateways were only calculated when the previous activity was completed. You can now see the consequences for the process after the data entry.

  • If a task has an output (usually a document), the user can now upload his work result to the task. This file is then made available to other users in the following tasks if they have this document as input for their task. Files no longer have to be sent back and forth between users via email. The current file is always available in the context of the task.

Version 7.1.0

New features

Governance Cockpit

  • The Governance Cockpit is available in the user interface so that you can manage and analyze your workflows centrally.

  • We implemented existing features in the new user interface:
    • You can access the complete workflow audit trail.

    • You can filter the workflow list and search for workflows.

  • We also added new features to the new user interface:
    • The initiator of a workflow is the first entry of a workflow audit trail.

    • All comments of the examination steps and approval given in a workflow are accessible in the audit trail of this workflow.

    • Depublished diagrams are stored in the audit trail of the depublishing workflow and can be retrieved in the audit trail.

Utilization of external Functional Allocation Diagrams (FAD)

  • When you use external FAD to model the resources of a process flow, then those activities are now utilized in the process flow. For example, the resources of the external FAD are utilized for the process flow in reports (both new and old user interface) or are displayed in the process flow view as integral resources of the process flow (only new user interface).

Extension options for Governance Workflow

  • Governance-Workflows can be extended for individual validations prior to publishing diagrams or catalog entries. Customers have the option to implement industry-specific validations (for example FDA 21 Part 11). Industry-specific validations are individual, thus a custom-service is required to implement those requirements. Our customizing would be glad to realize your requirements.

Version 7.0.0

A new name and a new look for BIC Process Design!

BIC Process Design now offers you a second user interface that is easily usable on mobile devices. The new interface is available immediately and has become even easier to use. A button in the top menu allows you to switch between the old and new interface. This is still necessary at first because not all functions of the old user interface have been transferred to the new user interface yet. The choice between the user interfaces also gives you the opportunity to get used to the new interface during the transition phase. Here you can find the help of the new user interface.

Growth in the product family!

With BIC Process Execution, we have a new module in the BIC Platform product family. BIC Process Execution allows you to publish processes as executable and then actually execute these processes using BIC Process Execution. If you are interested in this paid module, please contact us. Here you can find the help of BIC Process Execution!

New features

  • The templates for the process manual can be downloaded in the administration. You can now modify and upload the process manuals without support from us. Our documentation provides all necessary information including examples to make individual adjustments. Please keep the standard template locally in its original state because you cannot automatically restore the standard template in the system at the moment.

  • The release process for catalog entries now corresponds with the release process for diagrams:

    • Governed catalog entries (e.g., documents) now have the option to specify a resubmission responsible who receives the resubmission notification instead of the actual person responsible.

    • You can also configure additional examination steps for governed catalog entries, which are run through sequentially. In each of the steps, several examiners can still be entered to each be given a task. As for the release of processes, the examination steps must be activated in the method.

    • The valid-from date is also considered for the release of catalog entries in the same way as for diagram releases. If you have defined this date in the future, the system will wait until this date before publishing. If you did not specify a date, the catalog entry will be published immediately after the approval and the valid-from date will be set accordingly in the publication (no writing back to the public workspace).

  • BIC4SAP has become part of the standard method, thus ensuring easy activation of the method components. Are you interested in BIC4SAP? Contact us!

  • Reports can now be generated in PDF/A-2B format. The output format must be set in the reports descriptors (administration) accordingly.

  • We strived forward to harmonize both methods and aligned the drop-down values of the attribute “Control effect”.

  • A lot of customers gave us feedback about this configuration, and we disabled it for all systems. When a user opens a diagram in publication stage the diagram will no longer be displayed in fit-to-screen mode. Users can still decide to use this mode. Customers can contact us if they wish to have this mode as default, when opening a diagram in publication stage.

  • To support you meeting regulatory requirements, additional user authentication can be requested when processing tasks. The user then has to confirm his identity again if, for example, a quality assurance task is being processed as part of the process release. You cannot activate the additional authentication yourself, please contact us.

  • An editorial release can be deactivated so that each release must go through the defined release steps and no changes can be published without approval. You cannot deactivate the editorial release yourself, please contact us.

  • [BC-12025] - Catalog Process Warehouse is missing entries with restricted access

  • [BC-13726] - When an activity has an integrated FAD, then a double click in publications opens attribute hub instead of navigating to the FAD

Version 6.3.0

New features

  • Attributes can now be defined as read only. For this purpose, in your method the option read only, and a default value is set for the attribute concerned. Thus, when modeling in BIC Cloud Design, the value for such attributes is already set and can no longer be changed.

  • You will now be forwarded directly to the allocation diagram if you select the corresponding diagram in the “occurrences” of catalog entries. This means that you no longer end up in the higher-level main diagram, but directly in the desired allocation diagram, in which the respective catalog entry is used.

  • The diagram type Customer Journey Map is no longer available in its beta version, but under Customer Journey Map (CJM).

  • The catalog entry profile report has now a smoother design. For a better overview, all tables within the report are now aligned to the left.

  • The following languages have been added to the list of content languages within the administration area: Polish, Finnish, Estonian, Irish, Scottish Gaelic, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese. This means you can now translate your diagrams in these languages.

  • When catalog entries are published, files attached to the Attachment (URL) attribute, such as Microsoft Office file formats, are given extended properties. In the areas preview and publication, the governance attributes and the identifier of the catalog entry are added to the properties of the file. For example, you can use the field function in the header or footer of a Microsoft Word document to access the values of the properties. Required preparations for using this function are explained in the corresponding chapter. If attached files were not added as PDF during the modeling process, you can optionally activate the new governance attribute Publish as PDF. As a result, the files are then only available as PDF in the preview and publication area. More information about which formats are supported can be found in the corresponding chapter.

Version 6.2.0

New features

  • You can copy the URL of a specific catalog view via the menu bar, so that you can share it with other users. When opening the URL, the recipient sees the same catalog view with the same set filters or search results. For example, a document responsible can get a catalog view showing him a digital list with documents of his responsibility, which are expiring at a given date.

  • The facets of catalog entries will now display how many catalog entries have the same attribute value. For example, you can directly see how many documents are assigned to a specific scope.

  • A dashboard for catalog entries is now available, that enables an easier way to give you an overview of all catalog entries and their facets. You can dynamically use donut- and bar charts to analyze the object types of your catalog. For example, you can answer questions like how many different document authors exist in the catalog, who are they and how many documents are assigned per author.

  • The catalog export now includes the technical description of the attributes, which is hidden by default to preserve a better overview. You don’t need to maintain the technical description (attribute type ID) manually anymore in case you want to reimport a generated catalog export (Process warehouse). For example, you can now edit the excel sheet to update attributes or to provide missing translations for additional languages (target language must be set before the import). The following still applies: In case you want to maintain attribute types, which are not existing in the generated export, the technical descriptions must be added to the first row of the corresponding columns.

  • An additional report for catalog entries is available. Besides the attributes of the catalog entry, the profile contains all occurrences and associations with other objects so that you can fully export the information.

  • The scope of catalog entries will now be informed about publications via email. Similar to diagrams, user groups which are stored in the attribute “Scope” will be notified as soon as changes are available in the publication. The availability in the publication depends on the date that has been set in the “Valid from” attribute.

  • You can choose if you want to be directed to the details view of a catalog entry directly after its creation. This supports you in a way that you can directly maintain the catalog entry’s attributes (e.g. a description), without first manually searching for the new catalog entry in the catalog.

  • The displayed number of catalog entries per page has been increased from 50 to 100.

  • The translation mode is available for diagrams and catalog entries. The translation mode presents language dependent text attributes of all content languages, which have been set in the administration area, in a table. In the local workspace (checked out diagram) you can activate the translation mode in the menu bar to translate diagram attributes or modeling objects (catalog entries within a diagram can only be translated by editors or administrators). The translation mode can also be found in the catalog to translate catalog entries only. When translating catalog entries, these entries will directly be changed without creating duplicates or new catalog suggestions (this is for example the case when changing a catalog entry during the modeling process).

  • The representations of associations (sequence flow, input, output, ect.) has been optimized so they need less space at the ports. You can model now even more compact.

  • The visibility of watermarks in diagrams (for example in pools) can now be activated or deactivated.

  • Attributes within search results are now always displayed, even if the details bar for a catalog entry or diagram has been deactivated within the administration area. The administration setting to hide the details bar now only affects the diagram view.

  • Search facets are now sorted alphabetically, which simplifies the search and selection of the desired filter.

  • The diagram alternative language is now included in all SVG graphics within the preview and publication. Please note due to rendering it can come to a longer waiting period, when initially opening the SVG graphic.

  • The attributes of risks and controls were aligned with the attributes of BIC Cloud GRC so that the attribute names are identically.

  • You can connect Data Objects with documents in IT Architecture Diagram.

Version 6.1.1

The following bugs have been fixed in this release

  • [BC-11130, BC-11157] In some cases migration to version 6.1 fails.

Version 6.1.0

New features

  • The administrator can configure default MyBIC pages for their users. You can use diagrams or results of search queries as content for the default MyBIC pages which can be assigned to user groups. The users will see the preset content for their user group(s) on their MyBIC page.

  • The first column of the catalog import file can be used to identify existing catalog entries, for example by using the ENTITY_ID. When you import the file into the catalog, the update is applied to the selected content language and all attributes, which are given in the import file. You can look up the ENTITY_ID of existing catalog entries in the process warehouse report of the catalog. But you also have the option to use other attributes, for example the name of a catalog entry, to identify the intended catalog entries. BIC Cloud Design tries then to identify unique catalog entries and updates them, if there is an exact match. Please read the corresponding chapter in the user documentation before you use the catalog import to update catalog entries.

  • We optimized the catalog! In this view you will only see object types which are configured by the administrator as catalog entries or which have at least one entry. In addition, the amount of catalog entries for an object type displayed.

  • We enhanced the workflow filters! You can filter the workflow for a specific time span or search for a workflow by the name or e-mail address of a workflow participants, meaning that this user is the initiator or has a workflow task.

  • The multi-level depublication workflow for catalog entries is now available.

  • Users with an open task in the publication workflow for catalog entries are now reminded of their open task via e-mail. Your administrator can configure the reminder interval.

  • You can set a deputy for your workflow tasks in the task management. Your deputy sees now his deputy tasks under the menu entry “Deputy tasks” in his task management. He must actively claim a task in order to perform it. You can find further information here.

  • The group tasks now also show done group tasks. Each group member can now see which group task has been already performed and who performed it.

  • The responsible person for published catalog entries will be informed via e-mail when the catalog entries are going to be invalid.

  • You can set an alternative resubmission responsible for diagrams (user and user groups are available) which will receive the resubmission task instead of the diagram responsible.

  • You can optionally define a third examination step for the publication of diagrams. You must enable the corresponding governance attribute in the method in order to use it productively. The third examination step is handled in the same way as the first and second examination step. Please note that you must maintain a third examiner in the diagram attributes in order to be recognized by the workflow. You can also define the corresponding governance attribute as mandatory in the method in order to enforce its maintenance.

  • You can define mandatory attributes for diagrams in the method. Those attributes are marked with an asterisk in the attribute view in edit mode. The mandatory attributes are checked prior to the workflow start and the workflow cannot be started when they don’t have a value. The only mandatory attribute of the standard method is the Responsible in order to start a workflow. For example, when you want to have an examination step included in your workflow permanently, then you can set this attribute as mandatory in the method.

  • The attribute Target of events is now multi-value so that you can assign several diagrams as target.

  • We enhanced the search! The corresponding stage and content language of the search results are now displayed.

  • You can also assign a user group to the governance attribute Responsible besides an individual user. The responsibility of a process should be uniquely defined so that you can still assign just one value (one user or one user group).

  • When you delete an object from the sequence flow, then the predecessor and successor will be automatically linked to each other in order to restore a valid sequence flow without the need to do it manually.

  • The suggestion list in modeling uses the scope of the diagram to filter the results. Only results will be suggested which match the scope of the diagram or which don’t have a scope assigned at all. This new filter mechanism ensures that you use the correct catalog entries and that you don’t see irrelevant catalog entries.

  • Symbols of objects can be switched after you have modeled an object. You don’t have to delete the object and model it again with the new symbol. The only part of the object which changes is the representation (symbol), so that all assigned attributes, relationships, etc. are kept. You can choose between all symbol types maintained in your method and which are assigned to the used diagram type.

  • We advanced the layout assistant. It can be used for diagrams with vertical pools, if you have configured them in the method.

  • We introduce a first validation of BPMN diagrams! BIC Cloud Design validates the sequence flow of gateways, activities and events. When there are invalid sequence flows in your diagram, then the validation hub explains and points towards them. Your administrator or our Customizing can configure individual OCL rules to be validated considering your companies modeling conventions.

  • The mass import of BPMN diagrams is now available. The mass import can import several BPMN diagrams compressed in a ZIP-file and also creates categories, when the diagrams are embedded in a folder structure.

  • You will be logged out of the application after 30 minutes, when you have been inactive in BIC Cloud Design during this period.

  • We optimized loading times for diagrams in the preview and publication stage by introducing the SVG view to these stages. Even huge diagrams in those stages can now be opened quickly. By introducing the SVG view there will also be minor changes to the navigation, which you can find here.

  • The print preview is available in all stages (public workspace, preview and publication)!

  • We optimized the process execution! The end of a process will be identified automatically, you can choose the decision options along the process flow from a modern menu and mark performed process steps as done, so that you have an overview about the progress of the process instance.

  • The DMN editor is now available! You can define embedded business rules within your diagrams and reach automated decisions based on your input parameters by using self-defined decision tables. A thorough description of all functionalities can be found in the DMN chapter.

  • We advanced our collaboration functionalities! You can share diagrams in the public workspace with Readers via a link in order to receive feedback on the modeling status. This helps you, for example, after modeling workshops with process experts to verify the workshop results with them.

Version 6.0.0

New features

  • BIC Cloud Design can now be started even when you are offline! You can continue your modeling work even when being disconnected from your BIC Cloud Design service.

  • Your MyBIC page is there! We moved your company’s start diagram to this view and in addition, you can find your local diagrams and diagram favorites there. You can also see search results of your favorite search queries in MyBIC allowing you to have a plenty of useful information at your fingertips.

  • Setting a personal start diagram was replaced by MyBIC which is your new landing page.

  • We introduced group tasks in the workflow administration. You can claim those tasks in the group tasks view in order to perform them. The task then appears in your tasks view and your initials are displayed at the group task letting other members know that you will perform it. You cannot perform the task? Just revoke the task and other group members can take them over.

  • We optimized the workflow filters. You are now able to filter workflows for the state or type and you can search for specific workflows.

  • Administrators can configure the task reminder interval and the period for diagram resubmissions.

  • When the validity of a diagram is about to expire, the person responsible is informed by e-mail and gets a task with the options to extend the validity or depublish the diagram.

  • You can include a second examiner stage in your publication workflows. This second stage must be activated in the method, then the workflow includes the stage and the second examiner has the same functionalities as the first examiner.

  • You can give a title to an attachment in order to shorten the displayed name. You are also able to edit the title for URLs and uploaded documents.

  • Editors can replace catalog entries which are used only in attributes.

  • Catalog entries can initially be created and updated using an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file.

  • Archived versions of a catalog entry can be accessed and downloaded in order to restore older versions of the catalog entry.

  • All parts of the method can now be changed for a specific tenant using the new version of the method editor (available soon).

  • The e-mail address of a user can be used in different tenants on the same application server.

  • The search was optimized so that the last change date is given for each result. This allows you to identify changes easier. Do you want to have a change list of relevant catalog entries? You can easily search for e. g. a document of interest and mark the search query as favorite. The results appear now on your MyBIC page and you can monitor changes to the document there.

  • The expert search is automatically activated when you use an asterisk in your query.

  • The layout-assistant can be permanently activated so that your configured layout is applied as you use the mini symbol palette to place your modeling object anywhere on the modeling area. You can activate the permanent layout by holding CTRL and left-click on the “Layout” button. Please consider that a specific layout for your diagram must be set in advance by the administrator and that this feature is in a beta-state for now.

  • We optimized the matrix view for diagrams! It appears in a new design (including intuitive filter icons) and respects the actual sequences of the process flow.

  • We enhanced our BPMN import capabilities in order to import diagrams with collapsed pools, collapsed sub-processes and diagrams with vertical pools.

  • Values of occurrence attributes and assignment attributes (except the attribute type “Decomposition”) can be placed at the modeling object in the modeling area.

  • The descriptions in the attribute tab were optimized so that just the first three lines of the text are displayed in read mode. You can see the full description when you click on “Show more”.

  • The repositories are now sorted alphabetically.

  • The set content and alternative languages can be changed by clicking on the display next to the user name. This makes it easy to maintain translations in the catalog without leaving the catalog for language conversion.

  • Examiners are now informed about the rejection of a publication workflow.

  • The editorial release for the publication of catalog entries is now available for corresponding user roles.

  • Administrators can now monitor and manage workflows. A list of all workflows is available, which contains pending and finished workflows for diagrams and catalog entries (e.g. documents) and corresponding metadata. When workflows are running, administrators can see which user is currently assigned to an active workflow task, for example, to monitor the workflow progress. In addition, administrators can delegate active tasks to other users or abort a workflow. Further information on workflow administration and corresponding notifications can be found here.

  • Workflow initiators are also allowed to monitor and manage their own workflow instances. In addition to the overview of the running workflow, the initiators can delegate active tasks or abort the workflow instance.

  • When exporting, attached files are now considered and can of course be imported again. More over, the uploaded files can be named individually. This also applies to existing attachments: these no longer display the URL, but their original file name.

  • Users or user groups can now be entered in assignment attributes (for example Author in Governance) without the need to create a person or organizational unit in the catalog. If a corresponding catalog entry already exists, then the existing entry will be assigned. Otherwise, a catalog entry with data of the user or user group will be created.

  • Users are warned when they set an access restriction for diagrams or repositories which would exclude them.

  • You can now use object chips for navigation, for example, to open the details of the object.

  • In administration area, the options of catalog entries have been reworked. The current configuration is now displayed directly.

  • The layout assistant can now be configured in administration area so that you are able to specify the position of satellites on activities. In addition, you can define the number of satellites per row, distances, arrangement of ports, etc. How to configure the layout assistant can be found here.

  • The use of the layout assistant has been improved. If the user chooses a pool or activity that contains modeling objects, the embedded objects are arranged by the layout assistant. If no modeling objects are embedded, the entire diagram is layouted.

  • The default configuration of catalog entries in the publication stage has been changed. In this new configuration, applications, risks, controls, roles, documents and business objects are displayed in the publication catalog by default. How to change the default settings can be found here.

  • Virtual folders with facets are now available in the catalog to structure the catalog entries. Thanks to the innovative technology, the same catalog entry can be present in several virtual folders at the same time, without being duplicated. How to configure the new catalog in the administration area or how to use virtual folder productively can be found in our online documentation. The catalog is now accessible via the menu bar, whereby all catalog functions (e.g. creation of entries, catalog export, etc.) are still available.

  • The password settings are now secured by an e-mail. Passwords cannot be changed by a user from within the BIC Cloud any longer.

  • When a user changes his user role, this change will be recognized for the next login. The user role can be changed again at any time.

  • In projects, catalog entries can now be created initially via CSV import.

Version 5.1.0

New features

  • BIC Cloud Design speaks Spanish now. The user interface, e-mails, reports and method are also available in Spanish. Just the online help for Spanish-speaking users remains in English for now.

  • Administrators can configure the respective archive for Public Workspace, Preview and Publication now. Archives can be activated and deactivated for each area and a retention period can also be configured for each single area. This enables you to set a suitable period for each area to retrieve the diagram versions.

  • The archive is now sorted by descending date, so you will always find the latest version as the first entry. The current version of the respective area is no longer displayed in the archive.

  • Catalog entries can be published separately from diagrams and are managed through their own approval process (analogous to diagrams). For example, you can control documents by your own responsible person. If a diagram is published in which a catalog entry with its own responsible person is used, this catalog entry must be released separately.

  • Reports can be easily configured in the administration area. Beyond specifying the displayed name of the report (offered in the application), you are also able to set diagram types and user roles for which specific reports are available. You are also able to set the preferred file format of the reports, namely a Word document or a PDF.

  • The application displays details about selected diagrams or objects, for example the attributes or the profile. You can define the set of displayed information which you want to provide. You can also disable displaying attributes to the readers in the Publication. You’ll find the configuration interface in the administration area.

  • The Enter key performs several functions when modeling diagrams from now on. You can end the edit mode instead of creating a line break by pressing the Enter key. Anyway, you can still force a line break if the automatic break is not sufficient to you. In order to achieve this behavior, press the Alt+Enter keys in the same way analogous to Excel. Further, we use Ctrl+Enter keys now to create the first symbol from the mini-symbol palette automatically. In this manner you can model even faster without using the mouse.

  • The explorer on the left side has been redesigned! The design is more lean now, because we moved the task list to the main menu. Additionally, the design of categories and diagrams maintained in the explorer is even more clearly. If you want to reset your selection, you can simply click on the repository and select the whole repository. For instance, if you want to start the process warehouse report for the whole repository.

  • The comparison mode for diagrams is an excellent way to compare two diagram versions. The comparison mode shows in a clear manner which versions are currently being compared. It also takes into account whether diagram attributes themselves have been changed.

  • The diagram validation is also available in read mode, in addition to the write mode.

  • You can centrally set the headers and footers for PDF within the administration area, which is the valid for the print preview. You are able to select diagram attributes, your logo (if uploaded to BIC Cloud Design) or the page number as placeholders for the headers and footers.

  • Authors can make presets for the print preview in the new formatting section of the diagram. This provides the users with ideal pre-settings for printing, but they are still able to adjust the output individually.

  • Embedded images (raster graphics) in the print preview have been improved! Previously, these were outputs in the report, but were missing in the vector-based PDF output of the print preview.

  • You can navigate directly from a diagram to the corresponding catalog entry with a single click. For instance, if you want to edit the object in the catalog (assuming you got the appropriate rights to do so).

  • You can also add modelling objects to the catalog as suggestion, which normally exist just in the diagram (such as activities).

  • You can also remove suggestions from the catalog without replacing their occurrences in the diagram.

  • As the author you can now create and edit catalog suggestions in the catalog. Accepted suggestions can still be edited by editors only. However, if you are set as author in the attributes of the respective catalogue entry, you can still edit it.

  • As an editor you can change catalog entries back to the previous state of a catalog suggestion. This procedure allows you to redefine a decision on the catalog entry. For example, you can remove an entry from the catalog without being forced to replace the occurrence in the diagram.

  • As an editor you can accept modeling objects in a diagram, so that the diagram can be published. You can accept suggestions directly in the validation mode in the diagram.

  • Confirmed catalog entries are not overwritten when importing diagrams, instead new catalog suggestions are generated. In version 5.1, these proposals are only created if the content of catalog entries differ in the target system.

  • Users created via SSO are marked in the user profile. SSO users cannot reset and change their password.

  • Rules defined with OCL for modeling are now checked not only during modeling, but also afterwards. Rule violations are displayed in the validation mode and can be defined in the method with appropriate notes for the modeler.

  • For ease of navigation, the Explorer only displays diagrams that you have access to.

  • The Process Warehouse report (former called Excel export) is now available as a download in the menu bar and no longer in the catalog list.

  • The validity period of a diagram is automatically set during publication, if no date is defined. The start date is set to the current date, making the diagram valid immediately.

  • Empty categories are automatically deleted, if for instance the de-publication of diagrams has emptied the category. If you already have such data in the publication, they will be removed with the next publication after the update to version 5.1.

  • Authors can now create allocation diagrams for activities to structure the process in a clear manner. Allocation diagrams allow you to swap modeling objects from the actual process flow to display them in allocation diagrams. These allocation diagrams are displayed in Explorer if the respective diagram is opened. Alternative representations of the process, such as the matrix, process execution, or reports, still contain the full information of the diagram.

Version 5.0.0

New features

  • The interactive process execution makes it possible to work with processes - completely detached from graphical modeling notations! Depending on decisions, the process flow can be brought into tabular form with a focus on pure execution of tasks.

    • Initially, maintained probabilities are used for the path selection and the user can interactively change the selection.

    • In this view, the new activity profile helps you to get an overview of the relevant information

  • The Layout Assistant is available for the diagram types EPC and BPMN Collaboration! It positions the satellites of an activity in corresponding quadrants at the top right, bottom right, top left, bottom left:

    • The choice of the quadrant is based on the coarse positioning of the user

    • The sequence flow is also straightened as long as the sequence is largely modeled in a corresponding line

    • Connection ports of satellites are corrected, but the ports of sequence connections are not changed

  • The mini symbol palette now has a new quick modeling function that positions the following symbols horizontally (BPMN) or vertically (EPC) by one click and connects them to the previous object

    • Depending on the previous modeling direction, the system decides whether the new symbol is positioned horizontally or vertically next to the previous symbol

  • Filter symbols for better readability of the diagram: the new filter bar allows you to hide symbol types in the diagram (transparently displayed) and in the matrix

    • In the diagram, the user can thus focus on the essential desired aspects. Edges connected to the filtered symbols are also provided with a transparency

    • Filtering of the matrix view now also takes place in the filter tab. The columns in the table can be hidden by setting the cross

  • The freeform palette is now generated dynamically depending on the method: the new freeform object can have several symbols, can be maintained in several languages and can be created and maintained in the catalog:

    • The old freeform objects (free text, rectangles, circles, etc.) remain in your existing data and are not converted to the new freeform object - the new properties only apply to newly created freeform objects.

    • If the method does not allow the freeform object in the context of a diagram, it is also not available in the symbol palette

  • The search can be configured by the administrator:

    • The possible and available search facets can be set

    • The search can now also filter for date and selection field attributes

  • No more publishing with unaccepted catalog suggestions: with the help of this new rule, the publication stage is kept “clean” and the quality assurance of the respective master data must take place before the publication

  • The predated publication is available: the system does not publish the released diagrams until the “Valid from” date (Central European Time), if the corresponding date has been maintained. If no “Valid from” date is maintained, it will continue to be published immediately after successful completion of the publication

  • The former attribute bar is now the new detail bar: a lot of important information is summarized and made available there

  • In addition to diagram information, the profile now also displays corresponding information for the selected activity

  • The OCL (Object Constraint Language) is supported on the method side and is also used for validating the model: this allows you to set various modeling restrictions that help users to design valid diagrams. This is for example used in BPMN Collaboration diagrams to prevent invalid message flows

  • The BPMN import is now also available for BPMN export: the data exchange format according to OMG (Object Management Group) specifications can now also be imported into the BIC Cloud to generate corresponding diagrams

  • The new diagram type “Entity-Relationship-Diagram” is available

  • The Profile report is only available as part of customizing

  • For better readability, a high contrast scheme is available and can be activated via the user profile

The following bugs have been fixed in this release

  • [BC-236] - The matrix report is missing the translations for the output stereotypes if the choosen language differs from German or English

  • List of all decompositions and attachments: If several decompositions and/or attachments are maintained within the attributes of an object, a list of all of them is displayed when you click onto the object. This allows a targeted navigation.

  • Integrated upload function in the attribute bar: You can now link documents, images etc. with objects by using the intuitive upload function in the attribute bar. Simply click on the upload arrow in the field “Attachment (URL)” or just drag the desired document into the attribute bar.

  • Note for expired diagrams: If the validity period of a diagram is exceeded, a warning will be displayed in the publication stage.

  • Extension of matrix representation: In addition to roles, the matrix representation now also contains inputs, outputs, IT-systems and risks, which are displayed in the respective column.

  • Performance improvement when switching views: If you change the view/representation of your diagram, no re-connection to the server is necessary anymore. In this way, when you change the view, the same information will be displayed in a different representation, even if the diagram has been changed at the same time.

  • Improvement of the attribute view: Attributes are no longer provided by a retrieval of the server, but by the diagram itself. This improves the loading speed of especially governance attributes.

  • Adjusting the background color: As an administrator, you can change the background color of the logo area so that it harmonizes perfectly with your logo.

  • Integration of links in the description field: You have the possibility to add links to your description text. Use the add link feature in the description text of the attribute field.

  • Expand and collapse attribute groups: Attribute groups, such as the governance attributes, can now be expanded and collapsed with a simple click.

  • Re-open BIC Cloud through the last visited repository: The system remembers which repository you were working on last, so you will be redirected to this repository when you log in again.

  • Indication for denied access: If you do not have access to a specific diagram, you now see an image in the workspace that tells you that you are not allowed to open this model.

  • Adjustment of the symbol for occurrence attributes: Occurrence attributes are now represented by the plugpin symbol to indicate that the attributes only apply to this specific node.

  • The BPMN Collaboration diagram has been extended to include the event-based gateway and data store. In addition, there are some extensions and reorganizations of object attributes.

Version 3.1.0

New features

  • Performance improvement: Performance improvement when opening diagrams.

  • Improved comment display: Comments to objects are no longer displayed as a speech bubble at the respective object, but clearly visible in the center of the screen.

  • Start diagram: A user can set a diagram from his favorites as his personal start diagram so that it is opened directly at login.

  • Advanced search results: In addition to diagrams the search now also finds objects and provides the option of navigation via the occurrences of the objects.

  • Enriched Matrix: The alternative representation “Matrix” now also contains IT-systems as executing actors for BPMN and EPC diagrams.

  • Dynamic model comparison: A clear graphical highlight of the changes to earlier versions and the possibility to get directly to the object details is available to you.

  • Display of the local workspace: The “Show only local diagrams” function can now be found under “Change stage”. This further enhances the clarity of the system, especially for modelers. The function is now called “Local Workspace”.

  • Change the authorization role: The active role in the system can be switched if you have more rights than only “Reader”. This makes it easier for you to get into the role of other users and to view the system from the perspective of your employees.

  • Discard changes: Modelers can discard local changes via the context menu of the checked-in diagram.

  • Searching in the catalog: The search in the catalog shows the active search term permanently. This gives you a better overview of the displayed content of your catalog and you have the possibility to further restrict it.

  • Improved catalog display: The catalog can be unfolded and then displays all available object types as a filtering option.

  • Copy of formatting: The copying of a specific format is available to modelers as a functionality in the menu bar. This allows you to transfer formatting from one object to the another.

  • Reorganization of the catalog: If the filter is active, you can reorganize the selected object types. That means that unused (not modeled in a diagram) catalog entries are deleted. Keep in mind that decompositions are not yet considered as used in a diagram - this means that you should control persons’ objects manually, since these are not necessarily shown in the diagram but could be deposited as a governance participant.

  • Editing diagrams: Authors can only edit diagrams when they are maintained as authors in the model attributes. If you check in a diagram where the author has not been specified, the system will notify you.

  • Reminder when attempting to publish a checked-out diagram: Checked-out diagrams cannot be published, so the system tells you to check them in.

  • Comment when rejecting a published diagram: In case of rejection of a published diagram, a comment has to be given. In addition, the initiator receives a rework task.

  • Task list for releases: A list of tasks for upcoming and completed workflows is available to governance participants.

  • Depublication: The depublication (removal of a diagram from the publication) is now available.

  • E-mail delivery when publishing and depublishing: Users who have saved a diagram as a favorite or have it within their scope will be informed by e-mail when the diagram is published or depublished.

  • Bilingual e-mail delivery: Depending on the setting in the user details, the e-mail is sent in German or English.

  • Adjustment of colors and logo: In the administration area, you can set the company colors and the company logo. These settings affect all users.

Version 3.0.3

New features

  • Performance IE11: Various performance enhancements within the Internet Explorer 11 browser has been made.

  • Comments on process steps: The comment function is available not only on diagrams, but also on diagram content. Thus, the content in diagrams can be discussed more specifically.

  • Dynamic diagram comparison: The diagram comparison shows you your changes live. By selection in the diagram, the changes are highlighted. You can e.g. compare your local work status with the published version, or even two archived versions of the same diagram.

  • Multifaceted search function: The search shows your results depending on the search filters (“facets”) set. The search filters work additively - the more you activate in various categories, the less results you have left.

Version 3.0.2

New features

  • Watermarks: Watermarks are available in several languages and display the name of the respective object in the selected language. These are initially activated in the background of pools and lanes. You can also edit the watermarks in the formatting palette. If you rename the watermark itself in the formatting palette, it will no longer automatically display the name of the object.

  • Diagram display in a new tab: You can open a diagram in a new browser tab. To do this, you must click the “Open in a new window” option in the context menu of your diagram.

  • Change workspace: Users can change their workspace - this is done either centrally from your active repository in the context menu or on the diagram by changing the versions. That way for example a modeler can view the entire repository in the publication version, in order to see what already has been released.

  • Cross-model copying: The copying of diagram content can now be done across diagrams of the same type. Note that resources (such as roles, applications, risks and controls) are reused and process flow elements (such as events, activities and operators) are newly created. As a result, connections from and/or to new elements must be recreated.

  • Search: You can search for attributes of your diagrams. The search result page shows intelligent filtering possibilities, attributes as well as descriptions and offers the possibility to directly move to the diagram profile. The latter can be found in the lower right corner of the page.

  • Notifications when generating a report: During the generation of a report, the system displays a progress indicator. If you close this indicator, you will receive another message after completion, which will allow you to download the report.

  • New loading indicator: If you open large diagrams, you will see a loading indicator for the duration up to the display of the diagram. This indicator has been updated and the design has been optimized.

  • Archiving diagrams: When you publish your diagrams, PDF archive entries are created from these diagrams. The archive entries are created in the same languages in which the content is maintained in your diagram.

Version 3.0.1

New features

  • Attribut-bar in the catalog: When opening the catalog, the attribute-bar appears simultaneously. That way, you can see the most important information at first sight.

  • Filtering settings: The filtering settings in the catalog are retained while navigating in the Cloud, so that they are still active when you return to the catalog. Additionally, the dialog for creating new catalog entries is preselected with the filtered type.

  • Group-based authorization management: Besides the role-based authorization management, there is also the possibility to assign authorizations based on groups. In order to do so, you simply have to match your users with the appropriate group. It facilitates the authorization of users. Note, that users can be assigned to more than one group.

  • Dynamic tooltip: Descriptions to objects are displayed in a dynamic tooltip as soon as you place your mouse over the highlighted information symbol („i“) in the diagram.

  • RACI-matrix-illustration: The RACI-matrix-illustration is an alternative view of EPC- and BPMN Collaboration Diagrams. It provides an understandable overview of the responsibilities in your process.

  • Check-in reminder: In case you did not check in an edited diagram, you will receive a reminder to do so when leaving the site (Internet Explorer) or when logging out (Internet Explorer and Chrome). Therefore the diagram is unlocked for other users.

  • Mini symbol palette: A mini-symbol palette is now available for modeling. This allows you to easily create your diagrams from step to step, without having to search for the next symbol. The connections between the symbols are created automatically.

The following bugs have been fixed in this release

  • The output of too many download messages during the creation of the catalog export in certain constellations is now corrected.

  • Selections will remain active when you switch between symbols and symbol formatting.

  • Some improvements have been made for the Internet Explorer.
