Once you have modelled and activated your visibility scenario, navigate to the Monitor Workflows application to start a new instance of the workflow. Once the workflow has started, you will see the start events and other events being received in the Event Acquisition application. You can process them using the Monitor Visibility Scenarios application.

  • Step 1
    1. Open the Workflow Management dashboard and choose the Monitor Workflows tile under Monitoring Tools.
