Starting a process with a default name and a pre-selected process definition name


You can use the processDefinitionName property to select which process will be selected by default on the dropdown (when there is more than one process to choose from). Use the name property to set the name shown on the dropdown item.

If the app contains only one process definition, this process definition will be selected by default
