The Process Project

SAP Build Process Automation is an SAP BTP service that allows you to create, run, automate, and monitor your business processes on one interface using low-code/no-code capabilities. After subscribing to SAP Build Process Automation, you can create and manage projects in the Lobby. This lobby includes projects that you have created, those shared with you, or that you have imported from external sources or the store.

With an SAP Build Process Automation subscription, you can create and manage two project types:

Business Process Project
Create, deploy, automate, and run digital business process by configuring process artifacts. Examples of business process projects include Investment requests, invoice approvals, and sales order approvals.
Actions Project
Embed external skills and capabilities into your business process projects by uploading an open API specification file in .json format. Actions projects allow external systems and solutions to communicate with SAP Build Process Automation.

In this lesson, you will learn how to create a process project and how to create interactive forms, allowing you to capture and share information during a running process. Forms can then be a start trigger for a process and added as additional steps in the same process.

Business Scenario

Now that you are familiar with the product, it’s time to start building your first SAP Build Process Automation by setting up the process project in the tool. Use process projects as the container to group related artifacts, such as process, form, automation, decision, and so on​. There are generally three process project types that you can create at this level:

  • Business Process Project – to create, deploy, and run processes​
  • Actions Project – to communicate with external systems​
  • Task Automation – to create and run bots

In this exercise, you will create a business process project. Once you finish this first step, you will be ready to start working with Forms, Conditions, Decisions, and more.
