Batch operations

The following operations can be executed asynchronously

All batch operations rely on corresponding methods that provide the possibility to operate on a list of entities synchronously. Please refer to the general Batch documentation to understand the creation process better.

Asynchronous operations can be performed based on a list of specific instances as well as on the result of a query providing a resulting list of instances. If both a list of instances and a query are provided, the resulting set of affected instances will consist of the union of those two subsets.

Cancellation Of Running Process Instances

Cancellation of running process instances can be performed asynchronously using the following Java API method invocation:

List<String> processInstanceIds = ...;
runtimeService.deleteProcessInstancesAsync(
        processInstanceIds, null, REASON);

Deletion Of Historic Process Instances

Deletion of historic process instances can be performed asynchronously using the following Java API method invocation:

List<String> historicProcessInstanceIds = ...;
historyService.deleteHistoricProcessInstancesAsync(
        historicProcessInstanceIds, TEST_REASON);

Setting Retries Of Jobs Associated With Process Instances

Setting retries of jobs associated with process instances can be performed asynchronously using the following Java API method invocation:

List<String> historicProcessInstanceIds = ...;
historyService.deleteHistoricProcessInstancesAsync(
        historicProcessInstanceIds, TEST_REASON);

Setting Retries Of External Tasks

Setting retries of external tasks can be performed asynchronously using the following Java API method invocation:

List<String> externalTaskIds = ...;
externalTaskService.setRetriesAsync(
        externalTaskIds, TEST_REASON);
