Scenario

If you develop a BPMN, you probably have to manually trigger the process multiple times to check that everything works as expected. One way to trigger a BPMN is the usage of the “Start Process” function in the Process Repository.

You can find the Process Repository in the NetWeaver Administrator -> Processes and Tasks -> Process Repository.
