Navigating the 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. This introduction covers the basics of the Apromore Portal.
Please refer to the various entries in the user guide for specific plugins information and capability.
To view the Apromore portal, log in using valid credentials.
The Apromore Portal appears after successfully logging in.
Once logged in, we can explicitly log out by going to the user menu and clicking Sign out. However, after 30 minutes of inactivity, the session will automatically expire, consequently logging us out. Five minutes before this timeout, a pop up window displays the remaining time before the session expires. We can click on the pop up window to keep the session alive or log out.
The workspace folder structure/folders tree is on the left-hand side of the portal window in the My workspace area. We can expand/collapse individual folders by using the arrow icon next to each folder.
We can also expand/collapse all folders at once using the two icons located on the top-right of the folders tree.
The central area of the portal contains the file view. The file view shows folders, process models (represented by a flowchart icon), and event logs (represented by a logbook icon). We can view the files either in grid or list format.
We can see the details such as version, last update time, the description and the owner of a process model in the Details view.
The Details view is populated only when a process model is selected
We can double-click on a process model to edit it using the BPMN 2.0 standard in the BPMN Editor. Likewise, we can also double-click on an event log to analyze the process map or BPMN model from the selected log in the Process Discoverer.
We can access the user guide from the question mark button on the top-right corner of the Portal.

Enter the file/folder name and click OK.

If a process model has multiple versions, the model with the latest version is deleted
To copy a log/model, select it and click on the Copy button.
Paste the log/model in the desired directory by clicking on the Paste button.
To move a log/model, select it and click on the Cut button and then paste the log/model to the desired directory.
Alternatively, we can drag and drop a log/model to move it.
When a file is moved to a different directory, we get a pop up window informing us that the file will inherit the access rights of the new directory.
We can search for specific folders or files by entering keywords in the textbox. The results appear in the file view.
To check Apromore’s version number, change the password and sign-out, click the User menu icon in the top-right corner.
