Hi ivy support team

We're exploring ivy 7 where case map is a interesting feature there. So now i get a little bit confused what Case Map really is. imo, it just orchestrate the main flow of processes into stages and sidesteps.

Now the next question is what is different between Business Case and Case Map. Or Case Map is just a presentation layer of Bussiness Case in BPM point of view?

I also read this in documentation:

The dependencies between Case Map, Business Cases and Business Data are as follows: Processes started inside a Case Map create new cases inside the Business Case, which themselves contain tasks for the users. Data between processes can be easily shared using Business Data. A Business Case can be attached to a Case Map, which in turn controls the flow of the processes.

In one Case Map, it can have more than one Business Case?

Hope ivy team can explain more about those cool things.

The BusinessCase is classically an instance of a CaseMap execution. So the CaseMap is the static definition of the flow, while the BusinessCase reflects a real execution of a CaseMap. Every execution of a CaseMap creates a new Business Case instance.

In classical workflows, where users start a Business Process directly via IVP link, the first Case is treated as Business Case. You can attach follow up cases (triggered or signaled) as child case to the first Business Case by simply declaring this on the Inscription mask. And this is also the default for newly created processes. We still create detached cases for old processes, to not break any existing behavior.

So basically you can make use of this new Business Case concept without using a Case Map. Its the new cool thing to keep agile process executions together.

hi @Reguel Werme... ♦♦ In casemap, is there a case that we have several business cases in single casemap?

Hi ivy support team

Is there a possibility to attach a case to a business case that haven't triggered or signaled the process (e.g. programmatically)?

Example: A -> existing business case ->C triggers B -> attache B to A
