Handle In-Flight Process Instances

After import, follow guidelines in transitioning currently running process instances from Oracle Process Cloud Service to Oracle Integration.

Handling short lived instances and their human tasks
  • For a short overlapping period, run the instances in parallel in Oracle Process Cloud Service and Oracle Integration, then schedule a transition period during which no new instances are created in Oracle Process Cloud Service.
    • Let Oracle Process Cloud Service instances and tasks complete and drain in the Oracle Process Cloud Service instance, with no new instances created. At the same time, ensure all new instances and tasks get run on the Oracle Integration instance. During this transition period, end users must use two inboxes.
    • After the transition period, all process runtime activity ends on Oracle Process Cloud Service. End users no longer need to use two inboxes.
Handling long lived instances and their human tasks
  • For a short overlapping period, run the instances in parallel in Oracle Process Cloud Service and Oracle Integration, then terminate instances in Oracle Process Cloud Service and manually recreate them in Oracle Integration.
    • Let Oracle Process Cloud Service instances and tasks complete and drain in the Oracle Process Cloud Service instance, with no new instances created. At the same time, ensure all new instances and tasks get run on the Oracle Integration instance. During this transition period, end users must use two inboxes during the transition period.
    • After the transition period, use the Alter Flow option in Oracle Process Cloud Service to terminate instances. Create new instances with the same payload as in Oracle Process Cloud Service in the Oracle Integration environment. Use Alter Flow in Oracle Integration to move newly created replicas of the Oracle Process Cloud Service instances to the correct activity in the Oracle Integration process. You can automate these actions by programmatically invoking the Alter Flow option in Oracle Process Cloud Service and Oracle Integration. See Alter the Flow of a Process Instance in Using Processes in Oracle Integration.
