You can also remove remove_wps.png the URL or reload reload_wps.png it, for example if recently added processes are not shown. A click on the Get Processes button will show the available processes:

dialog_wps_processes.png

You can also filter the list of processes. Simply type in characters the process must contain and click again on Get Processes:

A click on one of the processes will show the inputs that are expected for this process:

If a input should require vector data, a list of available layers is shown for this input. After you have adjusted the inputs to your needs a click on Execute will start the process. Log messages informing about the current status will be shown at the bottom of the client dialog:

dialog_wps_process_started.png

Once the process is finished, the results tab is shown. Vector data can be added to the map, literal (e.g. text) data will be shown in text boxes:

dialog_add_result_to_map.png

Some processes need vector data sollowing a specific schema as input. The client automatically detects such inputs and activates a button Map Schema next to them:


dialog_map_schema1.png

A click on this button brings up the schema mapping dialog:

dialog_map_schema2.png

Required attributes from the input schema are shown on the left. Available attributes from the selected layer are shown on the right. You can move the layer attributes up and down to match the semantic and data type of the respective schema attribute:

If you are finished, click on Ok and the mapping is stored for the current process execution.
