Designer > Implementing a BPMN Gateway or Control Flow > Sequence


The Sequence container is displayed in Process Developer Classic layout style. If the BPMN style is in effect, there is no Sequence container in the palette. Every activity is contained within a hidden sequence to simplify designing on the canvas.
A Sequence container arranges and executes activities in an ordered list. This means that the first activity in a sequence executes, and when it is finished, the second activity begins.
