Running a process
When you build a new process, the Run button is disabled unless the process is both saved and valid.
Running a process
There are currently three ways to run your process:
- From the Topbar, by pressing the Run button.
- From the Validation confirmation message by pressing the Run process button.
- From the process list, in Process Designer.
Process flow without Input process variables
- If the process flow has no variable set as Input, the process flow will simply start running once you hit the Run button.
Process flow with Input process variables
- If the process flow has variables declared as Input, once you hit the Run button, a dialog will pop up requiring values for all Input variables in order to initiate the process execution.
The values provided for the Input variables should be of the same type. This means that for File variables, you will have to upload files and for Data Model variables, you will be able to set values using JSON.
Once you fill in the values, hit the Run button so that the dialog closes and the process flow starts running.
When you hit the Run button, a notification will be shown that the process completed.
- Click on Check instances to go to instances details.
- Click on the contextual menu from the Process Designer and go to View Instances:
In the Instances page, you will see all the instances generated for each run of the process, with each having details like:
- Instance Id: for every new run, a new instance of the process is created with a unique id;
- Actions consumed: the number of actions that were used for that run of the process;
- Started on: the date when the process was initiated by the user (when the instance was created);
- Last updated: when the last action within the process was processed;
- Submitted by: username of the person who launched the process;
- Status: the current status of the process
Click on an instance to expand and view Input and Output variables (if any were declared)
Click on Show details to access the Instance View to see the instance and the state of each action.
In the Instance View, click on an action to view details about it: status, started on, when it was last updated, input and output process variables' values if there were any declared for the process.
