Activity Parameter Nodes for Subprocesses

Postby » Wed Feb 20, 2019 6:41 am


I have two processes, one main and one subprocess. The subprocess uses in and out parameter nodes. Where should I display the according nodes? Only in the subprocess, or also in the main process?

Main process "Import file" (version 1) - This is, how I would actually model it:
Import data_v1.png

Subprocess "Log processing" (no question about it, just to show, that the parameter nodes are modeled here also)
Log processing.png

Main process "Import file" (version 2) - Is this version more accurate?
Import data_v2.png

In version 2 I would understand the parameter nodes as required for the main process "import file" - which is not really correct, from my point of you. Only if the "error-case" occurs, these parameters will be needed - but they will be needed by the subprocess. Am I right?

Thanks for your feedback
