Element Details

An Alternative is a switch that connects the process flow to one of the exits of the element depending on the evaluation of the exit conditions. So, you can use this element to perform business rules (in the form of if - else if - else decisions) or to build loops in the process flow.


Name Tab

The Name Tab is included in the mask of all process elements and contains the name and a description of the element.

Condition tab

Condition tab


Each row in this table is assigned to an exit of this element. In the column Condition boolean expressions must be entered. The conditions are evaluated from the top to the bottom and the exit of the first one that evaluates to true is chosen, i.e. the process will proceed by the path connected to this exit.
