Comparing Workflow Model Versions¶
Comparing Previously Published Versions¶
Comparison is available both when draft mode is enabled or disabled
To compare previously published versions of workflows model:
Make sure the “Workflows” section is open.
Click the “Version: N” button located at the bottom of the list of workflows (Figure 1).
The action will open a comparison window (Figure 2).
Select two versions of the model for comparison. For example, version 2 and 10.
A comparison of processes and executors is available in the corresponding tabs. In the “Business processes” tab it ia also possible to compare diagrams, indexed variables, process settings and mapping in the additional tabs. If there are differences between the model versions, then an indicator in the form of a red dot will be displayed to the right of the name of the tab containing the changes.
The left side of the screen contains a list of workflows/executors available for comparison. If an item has been changed, the icon will appear to the right of its name; if an item has been added, the icon will appear; if deleted: the icon.
The right part of the screen displays changes related to the selected item as a table with 2 columns - selected versions for comparison.
There are 3 types of changes: deleting, adding, editing. Added values are highlighted in green, edited and deleted values in red. If there are no changes, the right part of the screen displays “No differences”.
If you compare objects that are too large, the content of the objects will be collapsed by default (except for the part of the content that was changed on the right or left side of the comparison). To expand the content, click on the text “Expand N lines…”.
The “Diagram” tab will display two versions of the process schema. The edited blocks are highlighted in color: green - added block, red - deleted block, orange - changed block, blue - moved block.
