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 SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub to help visualize your model. In this example, we would like all costs to be marked with different colors based on their amount.
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.
Let's take a look at how 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. 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.
In order to indicate that there is a specific IT information behind a task for example, you can do this through an attribute visualization. A task managed by an IT system, will now have an IT icon next to it.
Watch the video below to learn how to set up an attribute visualization for an IT system, and then apply it on your own workspace. Please note, this is a two-part video.

Now that we created our attribute visualization, we want to visualize this in the Process Collaboration Hub. Learn how to do this by watching the video below and following the steps.
