Appian BPMN 2.0 Importer

Crystal System’s BPMN 2.0 Importer allows existing BPMN 2.0 compliant process models to be imported into Appian.  Business Analysts and Process Owners often document enterprise processes in various modeling tools. These diagrams can now be turned into Appian applications without re-modeling from scratch.

App features:

  • BPMN 2.0 file validity check
  • XPDL 2.1 file validity check - beta
  • Creation of a valid Appian application which can be downloaded and then imported into Appian without any further processing
  • Tested with Bizagi Modeler, Signavio,,, Visual Paradigm, Camunda Modeler, and Yaoqiang BPMN Editor


To use the Appian Importer the client will receive access to a web application that will allow the online transformation of the process. The client process will not be stored anywhere on the platform or in any database, unless the process conversion has errors and the client agrees to share the uploaded file for debugging purposes.
