Exporting diagrams as BPMN 2.0 XML files

The BPMN 2.0 standard includes an XML notation. It enables 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.

  • 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.
