Getting familiar with Operate

This section "Getting familiar with Operate" and the next section “Variables and incidents” assumes that you’ve deployed a process to Zeebe and have created at least one process instance.

If you’re not sure how to deploy processes or create instances, we recommend going through the Getting started tutorial

In the following sections, we’ll use the same order-process.bpmn process model from the Getting Started guide.

View a deployed process#

In the Instances by Process panel in your dashboard, you should see a list of your deployed processes and running instances.

operate-view-process

When you click on the name of a deployed process in the Instances by Process panel, you’ll navigate to a view of that process model along with all running instances.

operate-view-process

From this Running Instances view, you have the ability to cancel a single running process instance.

operate-cancel-process-instance

Inspect a process instance#

Running process instances appear in the Instances section below the process model. To inspect a specific instance, you can click on the instance id.

operate-inspect-instance

There, you’ll be able to see detail about the process instance, including the instance history and the variables attached to the instance.
