bpm'online studio

Section wizard

Use the section wizard to create new custom sections or customize existing sections.

You can modify base properties of sections, pages, business rules and cases.


All changes made to the bpm’online configuration via the section wizard are saved in the package specified in the “Current package” system setting. If the package is unavailable for the current user or no package is specified in the “Current package” system setting, then bpm’online will prompt you to select another package from the list of available packages when you open the section wizard. Use the [Configuration] section to manage packages, and the [System settings] section – to manage system settings.


All changes made to the configuration via the section wizard, such as adding new objects or columns to the existing objects, are applied when you save them in the section wizard.

To add a new section via the wizard, open the system designer by clicking the btn_system_designer.png button in the top right corner of the application window. Click the [Section wizard] link in the [System setup] block (Fig. 1).

You can open the section wizard only if you have access to the [Access to “Configuration“ section] system operation.

To modify an existing section, open it and select the [Open section wizard] option from the [View] menu (Fig. 2).
