Initialize filter

Consultant

You can apply a filter to business process hierarchies to only show the business processes that meet the defined conditions.
Before you can use business process hierarchy filtering for a solution, you must initialize it.
Initialization can take quite some time, depending on the size of the solution.
If desired, you can re-initialize business process hierarchy filtering for a solution. For example, if filtering does not give the desired results, you can re-initialize to repair the filtering data.

Apply filter to business process hierarchy

Consultant

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.
