An indexed property is a variable property that serves as a selection filter for active processes. It can also be used in defining events for business event processing. This property holds a piece of data, such as a customer Id, application date, or amount. Using an indexed property in an event service allows for fine-grained analysis of business events as they are monitored by the Event Manager. Using an indexed property in a selection query provides a fast way to filter processes based on important data items.

For example, you can retrieve a list of faulting processes that share the same indexed property, suspend processes, fix bad data values, and continue process execution.
