How to enable a Business Process Flow in D365 v9.0 for UUI

With D365 v9.0 the data structure for business process flows (BPF) has changed. For each BPF exists an own entity.
Together with the Unified User Interface (UUI) and the corresponding app designer the steps for enabling a PBF have changed a bit.

For this example we just copy the standard BPF “Opportunity Sales process”.
1. Create a new solution

2. Open the standard BPF “Opportunity Sales process”, save it as “My custom Opportunity Sales process” and activate the process.

3. Add the new process to the solution. A dialog is opened and asks for adding required component. The dependent component is the entity created when the new BPF was saved.

“Enable for Mobile” is avtivated by default for a BPF entity. You can deactivate it but after saving it is activated again.

5. Add an app to the solution and open the app designer. I used the standard “Sales Hub” app in my example.
