BPMN with EA: Gateways - Branching Sequence Flow

Useful tips for modeling branching sequence flow in BPMN gateways in Enterprise Architect.

Display Options: 

  • Specifying conditions for branching of the sequence flow (e.g. at the outputs of gateways) must not – as with most other languages in the Enterprise Architect – be done via the field [Guard] of the [Connector Properties] view, but must be set in the view [Tagged Values] in the field [conditionExpression].


  • In your modeling guidelines, set out guidelines and rules on how process modelers must formulate conditions.
  • Define rules and rules in your modeling guidelines as to whether you want to use gateways (along with “normal” sequence flows) or sequence flows that are used instead of gateways.
