Along with the repository, you get powerful tools for managing your documents and business process models.
All business process diagrams are stored in structured tables in the repository and can be inserted easily in reports via SQL queries. At the same time, you can build hierarchical classification systems in your repository using folder structures and maps.
The Team Repository enables the management of process models and all types of documents. In addition, linked documents can be stored in the models themselves. Version management in the Team Repository is virtually automatic. External files can be imported by a simple “drag and drop”.
An integrated “CheckIn / CeckOut” mechanism guarantees access control to the repository. The correct handling of changes in an environment with multiple users is secured.
The team repository uses an advanced authentication and authorization concept for small workgroups through to enterprise installations. The safety concept includes the definition of user and group authorizations and the definition of rights to access documents and folders.
Team Repository enables the hierarchical arrangement of documents. This means that one can refer to the same document from different locations. Powerful query dialogs support the search for key words, dates, versions, authors, etc
With Process Modeler’s Team Repository you break through the boundaries of the diagram. It is very easy to reference BPMN elements from other diagrams. This facilitates the reuse of roles (lanes), pools or data objects and ensures a clean documentation. Of course sub-processes or tasks are reference-able(link-able). All this is, of course, possible in only within the same business process. This feature contributes greatly to the readability of the model.
