Exporting diagrams as BPMN 2.0 XML files

The BPMN 2.0 standard includes an XML notation. It allows for the platform-independent exchange of BPMN 2.0 diagrams. To get more information about this XML standard or about the BPMN 2.0 specifications, go to http://www.bpmn.org.

Signavio Process Manager allows the export of business process diagrams (BPMN 2.0), conversation diagrams (BPMN 2.0) and choreography diagrams (BPMN 2.0) to BPMN 2.0 XML.

To export a BPMN 2.0 diagram, proceed as follows:

  • Select the diagram you want to export.

  • Click Import / Export, then Export BPMN 2.0 XML in the top drop-down menu of the Signavio Explorer.

    Export diagrams to BPMN 2.0 XML.

    Export diagrams to BPMN 2.0 XML.

  • Choose the diagram language and if subprocesses should be exported along with the diagram, if applicable, in the dialog that opens.

  • Click Export. The exported diagram will be downloaded by your browser.

Exporting stakeholder specific views

If stakeholder-specific views were defined for a BPMN diagram, you can select one of them for the export. You can also decide to include subprocesses and choose the diagram language - if more than one is defined. If you would like to know more about how to create selective, stakeholder specific views of BPMN diagrams, see the chapter Creating views.
