Execute Process Instances With Params

Learn to execute process instance with params for a future date

Last published at: April 30th, 2024

This feature provides a UI for creating a new process instance, initializing the parameters if necessary, and executing the process instance in regular or test mode (on behalf of another user).

Use one of the following two ways. 

The designer navigates to the left pane to generate a new process instance name and notes to uncheck the “Execute” and click the “Create” button. A new process instance is created in the background, and its status is “Not Started.” Navigate to the Run—Process Instance page to execute the process instance with parameters. 

On the process instance page, navigate to the Actions—Create Instance menu option. Select the process definition and click the “Generate” button for the new process instance name. Uncheck the “Execute” box and click the “Create” button. 


A new process instance is created in the background and not executed. Select the process instance and click on the Execute - With Params menu option. 


The page renders in a new tab with the following UI: Use the calendar to select the future execution date and time. 


Select the appropriate test user from the dropdown list to execute the process instance in test mode. By default, the process instance is executed as an ADMIN user. Provide the variable values if required. Click on Execute or Execute in the Test Mode button. 


The process instance is executed in the background with an alert notification. The input parameters with values are displayed on the page for verification.
