We need existing features available in Eclipse PD added in Web PD.

When Process Application users report issues, our DevOps Team use the capability currently provided in Eclipse PD, to troubleshoot and resolve the issues then document in an incident ticket.

With functionality removed in WebPD, our DevOps Team will need to involve other Teams with BPM Administrative privileges making their work more difficult, more time consuming and less efficient.

We need the same WebPD capability regardless of whether the Process Server is online or offline.

    @IBM -

    Could you please add more details as to what release this was delivered in? Perhaps there is a list of features that were added to WebPD?

    Since this is now under review again, let me say that we are particularly interested in seeing token numbers displayed in inspector as well as the ability to set stops for debugging.
