Definition Of Operation
It is possible to execute the following batch operations on process instances:
- Cancel running process instances
- Delete historic process instances
- Set retries of jobs
after selecting the operation, fields with additional data required to perform the operation may appear. In addition to the ability to specify the desired operation, one can also specify a search query which will define the affected process instances. Please note that some operations can be only performed on running process instances, while others can only be executed on finished process instances. You will see an appropriate notice once the operation type is selected.
Navigation to the next step will be disabled as long as all required data to perform the operation is not filled out.
Confirmation Of Operation
In the next step of the process, you can review the operation that is going to be performed. One can see a short summary of affected instances count as well as a button which toggles display of extended information. In the section with extended information, you see a path to the REST endpoint that will process the request as well as the payload of the request.
On the results screen you will see the current status of the batch operation creation. Upon successful batch creation, the user is able to navigate to batch monitoring. In case of error, this screen will display a corresponding error message.
