How the Step"Is the previous run in the chain still active'' ? will identifies the previous run?

Hi All,

I am trying to identify the previous run whether is it active or not from an other chain by the step Is the previous run in the chain still active?

But how this step will identify the previous run without giving the chain name?

Please let me explain if somebody used this step earlier.

Thanks

Bhupal

    Hi Bhupal

    The variant Is the previous run in the chain still active? is used for local process chain. There is no way you could refer to another process chain for this step.

    If you have dependency on another chain, then please add your current chain as a meta chain to your first process chain.

    Please share if you have any other challenges in doing this or the real issue you are facing.

    Regards

    Hi Bhupal,

    The puspose of the PC_ACTIVE process is the following:

    When you have a process chain, which is scheduled periodically, but the runtime of the chain may be more than the period value, then as soon second run of the process chain is started, which contains this process step detects, that the previous run is still active.

    When its active, then a decision is made, what should be the processing steps.

    Online help document is for your reference:
