Apromore Portal

The Apromore Portal is the first and primary interface that users access. One can navigate the workspace folders and perform various actions through the available plugins.

Process discoverer

The statistics of each activity are displayed next to the activity name. The level of abstraction can be set using the Abstraction sliders. We can switch to the Average duration abstraction perspective or the Case Frequency perspective, using the Abstract by drop-down from Abstraction settings. To abstract away, the most frequent nodes or arcs click on Invert Ordering. To change the percentage of visible arcs, use the arcs slider. Closer to 100 % - we see a complex model. To visualize the concurrent execution of activities, we can use the parallelism slider.

We can save the finished file in a BPMN format or as a filtered log after applying different filters. To see both tasks and gateways and explore decision points, switch to BPMN mode.

Use the Log statistics panel to check the Case variants, the Events, and Activities one by one.

For convenience, there is also a possibility to change the layout or fit the model.

Filter

An alternative way to select a subset of cases or processes and retain specific cases is to use Filter.

Process Animation

To trigger log animation from the Portal, select at least one event log and a process model and click on the Animate logs from the Analyze menu drop-down.

Each case is captured by one token and is displayed on the process map/BPMN model. A bottleneck can be identified depending on how the different tokens traverse process map/BPMN model. ​

Note

If the token goes around an activity’s border, this indicates that the particular activity is skipped in that process case.

Administration
