Upload custom recorded business processes

You can upload business process artifacts (*.axbpm files) to the business process library. These files are generated from Task recorder. After they are uploaded, you can view and modify the recorded processes in Business process modeler. To upload custom business processes that you recorded, follow these steps:

  1. On the Project home page, click the Business process modeler tile.
  2. On the Business process library page, click Upload in the My libraries section or the Corporate libraries section.
  3. On the Upload page, select the industry and enter a name and description for the file that you are uploading. Click Upload, select the .axbpm file, and then click OK. The upload process can take some time. You can view the status of the upload on the Administration page.
  4. After the business process file has been uploaded, you can view the business process framework from the Business process library page.
