I am exploring the Import > Visio VDX files for BPMN 2.0 models. When the procedure is started, the user needs to point one out of three options for the source visio file:

  1. BPMN 2 Model (w & w/o template)
  2. BPMN Diagram
  3. BPMN 2.0 Diagram.

There is no help on how Visio versions (2007, 2010, 2013) link to the options above. My testing experience proved that BPMN Visio 2013 is best imported with the second option, but it would be helpful if anyone knows what option 1 and 3 are for?

I am also confused with configuring the mapping, for example Visio 2013 to a BPMN 2.0 Process diagram in ARIS. Seems that whatever Visio sample diagram/template I would like to use, I can only create mapping to a BPMN 1.0 Process diagram. Has anyone else been digging into this topic?

I am using ARIS 9.7.2
