The process configuration appears to be logically correct. The process validation errors are not intuitive and it requires time to check and double check before a process can be validated. Unforeseen errors are time consuming and is not easy to get it finally working as desired, specially when joints/splits are fine and the process should validate. 

Steps to Reproduce: 

  1. XOG in a process definition for a process named 'Process1' 
  2. Login to Classic Clarity 
  3. Go to Administration, Data Administration: Processes 
  4. On the Available tab, look for the process name 'Process1' and click into it 
  5. Go to the Validation tab and Click on the 'Validate All and Activate' button 

Expected Results: The process to validate successfully. 

Actual Results: Errors encountered: BPM-0672: Un-matched Split-Join pair found : 'BPM-0681: Unknown step(BPM-0680: Unknown type)'-'STEP 5 - Create Cost Plan(Merge)'. The joins and splits seem to be OK, but the process does not validate.
