Error description

  • 'Display according to task type' in System Architect v11.4.2
    will display the Process symbol as the default and not the Task
    Type stereotype
    
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Create a new Business Process diagram
    2. Add a new Process symbol
    3. Go to the Execution tab and change the Task Type to 'Script'
    4. Right-click on the symbol and select 'Display according to
    Task Type'
    
    NOTE: The 'Adorn with Task Type' works fine and the stereotype
    is correctly added to the Process symbol.
    
    No known workarounds available

    will display the Process symbol as the default and not the
    Task Type stereotype
    

Problem conclusion

  • Existing behavior was defined to ensure presentation to BPMN
    standards. Also the request would mean that users would not
    be able to obtain a depictionless Process symbol. It is for
    these reasons that the existing behavior is retained. An ini
    switch has been provided that will allow presentation of the
    full-sized depiction in place of the depictionless Process
    symbol, BPMN_AllowFullDepictionForProcess. This is available
    in the Session Options tool and this explains its use.
