Deleting orphan Boolean expressions

5 Years Ago


Bizagi creates hidden boolean expressions when they are configured from the fourth step of the process wizard, in the Define Expressions step. They are created hidden when the developer does not check the Is Reusable property.
When attributes are no longer needed and should be deleted Bizagi will review their dependencies. If there are dependencies with hidden expressions they will not be available for deletion.

This article shows how to delete orphan Boolean expressions that are part of an attribute’s dependencies.
