For example, if a Process model object is deleted that has both incoming and outgoing Sequence Flow elements, the Sequence Flow elements must be reconnected for the remaining items.

Your user account or group membership must have the following permissions to delete items from the Process model unless your user account has the Make this user a Super Admin setting selected:

  • Processes: Edit Processes

If you accidentally delete a Pool element with other elements/connectors you want to keep, then select the Undo button.
