You can make selections within process maps to create filters that include or exclude data associated with a particular node.
Making a selection within a process map involves the map’s group dimension, which determines how the elements of the base dimension (that is, the nodes in your map) are grouped to form the connections between nodes.
You can change the default group dimension for a process map. See Configuring Process Maps.
When you make a selection based on a node within a process map, you are selecting all of the elements of the group dimension that involved that node. To better understand the role of the group dimension, consider the following examples:
To make a selection
Right-click any node in a process map.
Click one of the following options to make a selection based on the node:
Select* group dimension name +s* through node name: Filters the data to include all elements of the group dimension that passed through the node by filtering out all sessions that did not pass through the node.
Select* group dimension name +s* NOT through node name: Filters the data to include all elements of the group dimension that did not pass through the node by filtering out all sessions that passed through the node.
When you make a selection in a 3D process map, the node for which the selection is made is circled. Benchmarks appear around each bar help you compare metric values with and without the selection. See Understanding Benchmarks.
