About element templates


Element templates are currently available in BPMN diagrams only.

Element templates are a way to extend the modeler with domain-specific diagram elements, such as service and user tasks.

Custom fields in Desktop Modeler

Applicable element templates can be assigned to a BPMN element via the properties panel and/or the replace menu.

Applying an element template configures the diagram element with pre-defined values for BPMN properties, input/output mappings, and extension properties.

As seen in the REST Connector example above, it also provides custom editing UI, input validation, and assistance.
