Categories are used to organize content in the Registry.

You can use these types of entities:

  • Categories: You can define several main categories of a predefined type.
  • Subcategories: A main category can contain several subcategories of the same type.
  • Entries: You can add several entries to a category or subcategory.

You can use main categories to organize by purpose (Activities, Organization, and so on) and subcategories to organize by industry.

Entries can be used to define business concepts such as activities in a business process, which are described by a title and description. Such entries contain translations for the same activity in several languages. When using an entry with translations from a Process Map or BPMN diagram, you are automatically using its translations as well. See the "Content translation" section in the Infor Process Intelligence User Guide.

The System main category contains subcategories with predefined entries that are used for predefined drop-down selections in modeler, such as Currencies. These subcategories are populated when an import of an Industry Process Catalog has been performed.

The defaultCategory main category contains subcategories for each model that has attributes that have not been linked to entries from other predefined categories. The entries are added when a user types a value for a string or rich text attribute directly in the modeler. You can provide translations by editing the entries from the autogenerated categories.

To add entries to categories and subcategories, navigate to the Registry screen. See also the "Registry" topic in the Infor Process Intelligence User Guide.
