Selecting Activity Labels

Selecting Activity Labels

When you add an activity to the Process Editor canvas, it is labeled with the activity type. For example, a receive activity is labeled
Receive
. You can make the label more meaningful by adding a name or description. You can also add a name but display only the type to preserve screen real estate.
The following examples show some labeling choices. Notice that you can keep the label short, if desired, and then use hover help to display details.
Activity Type: Name
Activity Type
Custom Label
Create a label in one of the following ways:
  • Edit the activity label directly on the Process Editor canvas or fill in Activity Name in the Properties view
  • Select a label type from the Label property
To edit the activity label:
  1. In the Process Editor canvas, click in the activity label. The label field changes to an edit field, as shown.
  2. Type in a label that is the same as an activity name. You can include spaces or special characters.
Select the label type from the
Label
field in Properties view as follows:
Activity Name or Type
By default, the type is displayed. If you add a name, the name is displayed and is editable on the canvas.
Activity Name
This is for display purposes only. It can include spaces and special characters, and is editable on the canvas. It does not export with the BPEL XML.
Activity Type
The best choice to preserve screen real estate. The Type is not editable on the canvas.
Activity Type: Name
Meaningful label, but is not editable on the canvas.
