    • Defined operations can be linked to Service Tasks in the diagram.
  • Internal data inputs and outputs of activities and events can now be defined by accessing the contextual menu of an element and selecting Attributes -> Data Inputs/Data Outputs. Please consider the following special cases:

  • Data transformation can now be defined for Data Associations by accessing the contextual menu of an activity or event and selecting Attributes -> Data Input/Output Mapping. The data mapping re-uses the familiar DMN boxed expression such as Literal, Boxed Context, Relation and List. Please note that the available context for the mapping is dictated by the presence of Data Associations (incoming or outgoing).
