Open an Existing Automation Process Blueprint

Automation Processes are edited within a Blueprint because they rely on Business Object logic. Blueprints also allow you to set up multiple Automation Processes at one time, then publish them as a set.

To open an existing Automation Process Blueprint:

  1. Open CSM Administrator.
  2. Select Automation Processes.
  3. Select Open an existing Automation Process Blueprint.
  4. Select a Blueprint (.bp) file.
  5. Select OK.

Important: If you are working with Automation Processes after a Protected mApp™ Solution has been applied to your system, note the following:

  • If you create or open an Automation Process Blueprint which has a Protected mApp Solution installed, protected processes have shield icons .
  • If you select a content-protected process and right-click, you cannot delete the process.
  • If you edit a content-protected Threshold-Based, or Simple/Event Automation Process, you must use Save As to create a copy.
  • If you view Automation Processes in a Blueprint or by opening an Automation .BP file from CSM Administrator, they cannot be edited in any way.
  • See Protected mApp™ Solutions.
