An actor can be any person, role, organization, application, or system that interacts with a modeled process. The purpose of creating actor artifacts is to include them in Processes. After you have created actor artifacts, you can set an actor for each shape in a Process.
Actor Artifact Properties
By default, an actor artifact contains the following system properties:
Indicates the name of the actor
Indicates the type of artifact
Provides a unique identifier for the actor. The Id cannot be modified
Displays the chosen actor image, or a default avatar if no image is chosen
If the actor is inherited from another actor (that is, a parent), this property indicates the name and ID of the parent actor
Provides a description of the actor
Your instance administrator can configure standard properties for each standard artifact type. Actors also have their own relationships, discussions, files, and history.
