for a user to possess a large number of unfinished work items, there can be a maximum of eight instances of an interactive workflow that is suspended in the memory cache. This limit applies to an individual user session. The limit is eight instances total for interactive workflows that are initiated from within the user session, not eight instances for each interactive workflow. This eight instance limit is not configurable. The user session is one connection on the Application Object Manager component, regardless of whether this thread is logged as a single user. If the eight instance limit is reached, then a new interactive workflow process is not prevented from running. Instead, if the user initiates another interactive workflow after eight instances are already cached in memory, and if this ninth instance must be saved to the cache, and if the AutoPersist flag for the workflow is set, then the oldest instance is either pushed into the database or it is dropped if the memory cache reaches the cache limit. Event Handling with an Interactive Workflow Process That Is Suspended Siebel Workflow handles events in the following sequence: 1 Checks the in-memory cache to determine if there are instances for a workflow process in the cache that can receive an event, using the matching criteria defined by the event. 2 Checks the database to determine if there are persistent instances for a workflow process that can receive an event. 3 Resumes instances found in Step 1 and Step 2 . Handling the User Logout Event for an Interactive Workflow Process That Is Suspended Upon receiving the event for the user logout , the Workflow Engine proceeds through the interactive workflow processes that are suspended in the in-memory cache. Each workflow with the Auto Persist flag checked is saved as an Inbox item. Other workflows are deleted. Options for a Long-Running Workflow Process This topic includes the following topics: Defining a Subprocess that Assigns a Long-Running Workflow Process on page 140 Defining a Long-Running Workflow Process to Assign a Siebel Task UI to an End User on page 140 A long-running workflow process is a persistent workflow that can last for hours, days, or months. An example of a long-running workflow is an approval process that sends an order to an external system, then waits for a response. For more information, see “About the Long-Running Workflow Process” on page 129 . NOTE: If building a long-running workflow process, then use a user event and not a run-time event to start the workflow process and to resume the instance of the workflow.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
