how can I connect same level EPC processes?

1st process ends with event X.

2nd process starts with event X.

What Aris Cloud Advanced functionality can I use in order to connect these 2 processes? I read about process interface, but it's not clear how to use it.

Can you attach screenshots, please?

Hi Alex

A process interface is a link from a process A to a process B on the same business level respectively from a process A on a lower level to a function B on the next higher business level.
Please use for a link from a higher level function to the next lower level EPC the symbol "function".
Process interfaces are only available in the model type EPC.

Two additiona graphics are attached

Hi, can you provide the detail step by step on how to link a process. I am very frustrated at trying to link my two EPC diagrams together. In the old version there was the Process Interface Icon, this is not showing up in ARIS 9, I have the full professional edition. 

Please explain how you link it, step by step, as the current interface is not at all intuitive

I found this video to explain it for me. You have to create a Value Added Chain Diagram first. Then you create assignments to lower levels, both in the Value Added Chain Diagram or an EPC diagram

Thanks for replies, very clear now. 2 options

1. Value Added Chain Diagram connects to EPC

2. two same level EPCs through symbol "process interface"
