BPMN11 — Attributes not explained with respect to Notation

  • Key: BPMN11-7
  • Legacy Issue Number: 9318
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Adaptive ( Mr. Pete Rivett)
  • Summary:

    Most elements have a section called 'attributes' - but nowhere is it explained how these are related to the Notation being specified. Is it expected that each shape will have a 'property sheet' allowing these attributes to be viewed and edited? The end of Section 7.1.1 states "Thus, the graphic elements of BPMN will be supported by attributes that will supply the additional information required". In many cases though the attributes described include information that is redundant with the diagrammatic representation e.g. Name (in several places including 9.6.1) and ParentPool and ParentLane for Lane in section 9.6.3. In general Appendix B has more of the flavor of a metamodel or an interchange definition than a Notation.

  • Disposition: Resolved — BPMN 1.1
  • Disposition Summary:

    Suggested Resolution:
    Close, No Change: A requirement of the BPMN 2.0 RFP is to include both notation and a
    metamodel in the specification. Thus, the issue will be resolved with the specification that results
    from the RFP.
