Welcome to the Process Analytics monthly news 👋.

As you know, the goal of the Process Analytics project is to rapidly display meaningful Process Analytics components in your web pages using BPMN 2.0 notation and Open Source libraries.

2021 is over 🥺. Welcome 2022! 🥳 🎉
On our side, the project team worked hard to prepare the 2022 Roadmap that will be detailed in the next 2022 news.

☃️ We also worked on improving the bpmn-visualization TypeScript library. Let’s see what’s new here 👀!

bpmn-visualization TypeScript library

In January, we released 2 versions 📣: 0.21.2 & 0.21.3.

The library now generates a clearer error message when it is unable to parse the BPMN source ✨.

In previous releases, passing malformed content caused the ‘load’ function to throw an Error with an ‘r is undefined’ message 😱. It now handles the error correctly and returns a proper error message 💪.

In addition, a window alert was opened on load error. It should have been included only in the demo code and the examples 🤫, but not in the library code. This is now fixed and you can now fully control how you want to display errors in your application 🤗.

The “load remote BPMN diagrams” example has been updated to display load errors in a toast, as it already did for BPMN diagram fetch status. The recording below 👇 shows the new error management in action and the fixed BPMN load error message as well.

Plans for the future

Here are the topics we will be addressing in the coming months:

  • Continue styling improvements for CSS usage and introduce an API to apply styles to specific BPMN elements 🦄.
  • Create new examples to demonstrate other process analytics / process mining use cases 🤩.

That’s All Folks!

We hope you enjoyed this January project news and are looking forward to what February will bring 👋.
