You can apply a filter to business process hierarchies to only show the business processes that meet the defined conditions.

You can apply a filter to the business process hierarchies on these pages:
  • Business strategy designer
  • Business process designer
  • Scope definition
  • Process verification
  • Analyze gaps
  • Work package definition
  • Tests
  • Business process exercises
If filtered, a business process hierarchy shows:
  • The business processes that meet the filter conditions.
  • Their parent business processes, all the way up to the top node in the business process hierarchy. So, also the parent business processes that do not meet the filter conditions are shown.
The steps, as an example, explain how to apply filters on the Business process designer hierarchy.

Standard procedure

1. Click Business process modeling.
2. Click the Business processes tile.
3. In the left pane, on the Hierarchy tab, click Filter.
4. You can apply only one filter at a time.
  In the list, find and select the desired filter.
5. Click OK.
6. Sub-task: Clear filter.
  6.1 If a filter is applied to a business process hierarchy, you can stop filtering it.
  Click Filter.
  6.2 Click Clear.


  • If you apply a filter for the first time for a solution, and business process hierarchy filtering is not initialized for the solution, you must first initialize it. Initialization can take quite some time, depending on the size of the solution.
  • If you define the scope on the Scope definition page, and a business process hierarchy filter is applied, only the shown child business processes are set in scope or out of scope.
