Managing Message Components
You can add, edit, and delete message components for a process. When you add steps on the canvas, the message components will be available for selection in the related step tab.
Adding Message Components
For information to add message components, see Adding Message Component Instances.
Editing Message Components
You can edit a message component instance in two ways:
Edit the message component instance from the Step Properties tab.
Edit the message component instance on the Configuration tab > Message Component section.
Editing Message Component Instance on Step Properties tab
To edit a message component instance on the Step Properties tab:
1. On the canvas, double-click the step for which you want to edit the message component instance. The Step Properties tab is displayed.
2. From the Select <component> drop-down list, select the component instance that you want to edit and click /download/attachments/24976031/Map_Source_Edit_Icon.png?version=1&modificationDate=1487970024427&api=v2.
The Edit <component> Component window is displayed.
3. Edit the Component Name, component Type, Properties, and click Save. For information about the types and its properties, see Process Steps and Associated Components.
The selected component instance is updated. The same updated component instance appears in the Configuration tab > Message Components section.

Deleting Message Component Instance
To delete a message component instance
1. In the process file, go to the Configuration tab > Message Components section.
2. Click the message component that you want to delete and then click /download/attachments/24976031/Map_Source_Delete_Icon.png?version=1&modificationDate=1487970024630&api=v2.
A message asking for confirmation is displayed.
3. Click Yes.
The selected message component is deleted from the Message Components section.
Note:  You cannot delete a message component instance if it is being used in a process. Also, deleting the step does not delete the message component instance. You must first delete the step and then delete the message component instance on the Configuration tab.
