Reusing a case type

You can classify an existing case type as a child of another case type in your application. By reusing case types, you can save time and resources.

  1. In the explorer panel of Designer Studio, click Cases to open the Case Type Explorer.
  2. Hover over a parent case type name and click options menu.
  3. Select Add a child case type.
  4. Click Existing case type.
  5. Select a case type from the list.

    Review your case-type dependencies before selecting a top-level case type from the list. Demoting top-level case types can significantly alter your case instantiation process and case-type dependencies.

  6. Click Finish.

The case type is added to your application but it does not have a life cycle or data model defined. You can define these now or at a later time.
