Rerun an exited flow
Using Flow Manager, a flow that is in an Exited state can be rerun.
About this task
You can rerun a flow that is in the Exited, Done, or Killed state, as well as the Running or Waiting state.
When you rerun a flow, the flow runs again, starting at the jobs that exited and any jobs set as rerun starting points, and all successor jobs are also rerun, even if a job's status is Done.
Rerunning a flow that contains an alarm will not reopen a previously opened alarm. Similarly, rerunning a flow that contains a manual job that was already marked complete will not reset the state of the manual job. If the flow contains a manual job that was already marked complete, the state of the manual job is reset to waiting, but the manual job will not require completion again—the remainder of the flow may not run as designed.
- In the Flow Manager, select the most appropriate view for finding the flow.
- In the tree view, locate the flow you want to rerun.
- Right-click on the flow and select Rerun.
The Rerun Flow dialog is displayed.
- Select whether to rerun the flow from exited
items and starting points, or from starting
points only and click OK.
The flow is rerun, beginning with any jobs that exited, were killed, or were set as rerun starting points.
