Attribute Visualization Layers
With attribute visualization layers, modelers can display attributes directly on the diagram canvas using different icons and colors. You, as an administrator, create and configure custom rules that define the state of each visualization layer.
Attribute visualization layers can be configured and displayed for the following diagram types:
- BPMN diagrams
- Value chain diagrams
- ArchiMate diagrams
- Organization charts
Let's look at an example of how our attributes will look once we create a visualization for them. Also, you can then view your attribute visualizations in the Collaboration Hub to help visualize your model. In this example, we would like all costs to be marked with different colors based on their price.
If the cost is:
- Higher than $15 use a red icon
- Between $10 and $15 use a yellow icon
- Lower than $10 use a green icon
Now let's take a deeper look at how to set up attribute visualizations. We'll stick with the example above on setting visualizations based on price.
Now it's your turn to create an attribute visualization!
Let's say you need to create an IT System attribute because the modeler wants to put additional information behind the process task.
We can do this through an attribute visualization. A task managed by an IT system, will now have an IT icon next to it. This is also helpful when running reports as you can analyze all the IT systems connected with a specific task and which IT system is responsible.
Select the steps to set up an attribute visualization for an IT system. (Hint: choose Setup to begin).
When you hover over the right selection, a pop-up box will appear with additional information. Keep clicking through your process until it's complete. A Next button will appear when complete.

Now, that we created our attribute visualization, we now want to visualize this in the Collaboration Hub. Walk through the steps on how to view this in the Collaboration Hub.
