Use a Specialization of an Entity

Last update: Download PDF Edit


This section describes how to use an inheritance split to use a specialization of an entity.


Open the microflow, or if necessary create a new one. If you do not know how to add documents to your project, please refer to this article.

Add an ‘Inheritance split’ to the microflow and double click on it. If you do not know how to do this, please refer to this article.

Use the drop down menu to choose the variable which is to be inspected for the inheritance split.

After configuring the inheritance split, you will notice that the sequence flow paths leading out of it have turned red. Right-click on such a path and then under ‘Condition value’ choose the specialization for which this path should be executed.

Create additional paths for every specialization. Add activities and, if necessary, end events to these paths to finish the microflow.
