Mapping a process value to a field or parameter in another process

The Process List component is available in the Shared Components section of the View designer, and is visible only if the following bundles are deployed: 

  • Shared Components
  • ITSM Application

As an application business analyst, you might want to know the processes associated with an application to map the values of a process to a field name or parameter in another process. For example, when a user creates a ticket, the initialization step captures and stores the requester information, such as the requester name, email, and ID. You might want to map these values to a parameter in another process. 

The Process List component allows you to select the default and custom processes associated with an application. 

The Process List component is a Record editor type component and can be added only if a Record editor is added to the view definition.


Application business analysts can customize the objects developed in their own applications and that are marked customizable by the administrator, but cannot customize the objects developed in com.bmc.arsys in the Best Practice Customization mode. For example, objects in core BMC applications like Foundation, Approval, and Assignment cannot be customized in Best Practice Customization mode. For more information, see Customization layer

To add a Process List component to the view definition

  1. Log in to BMC Helix Innovation Studio and navigate to the Workspace tab.
  2. Select the application for which you want to add a Process List component.
  3. On the Views tab, click the name of the view definition to which you want to add the Process List component.
  4. From Palette, drag the Process List component into the Record editor component on the canvas in the order that you want them to appear on the user interface.
  5. In the Properties pane on the right side, click Settings , and then specify the properties.
    The following table provides information about the properties:

    Field Name Select the record field name that will store the fully qualified process definition name.

    Display LabelEnter a name for the label.
    ValueDisplays the default Record editor value.

    Enable this field to keep the Process List component disabled at runtime.


    Enable this field to keep the Process List component hidden at runtime.

    CSS classesDisplays the default Record editor value.
    Application Bundle IDEnter the application bundle ID, the processes of which must be listed by default.
    Process Alias Field NameSelect the record field name that stores the readable process definition name.
  6. Click Save.


The following example shows the Process List component added to the Flowset configuration:

In the example, com.bmc.dsm.hrsm-lib is passed as the Application bundle ID, so the processes included in the library are listed under Human Resource Service Management.
