Run your flow once
When you have finished creating a flow definition, you can run the flow immediately from the Flow Editor. You may want to do this to test the job sequence in a flow, or when the flow is to be run only once, and not on a recurring schedule. If you plan to run a flow again, or on a recurring basis, ensure that you submit the flow definition.
From the Flow Editor
- Ensure that the Process Manager Server is up and running.
- When you have completed the flow definition, from the Action menu, select Run Now.
- In the Run Flow Confirmation dialog, click Yes. The flow will run once. A copy of the flow definition is not retained in the Flow Manager. You can view the flow from your adhoc folder in the Flow Manager.
From the command line
- On the command line, type the following:
where flow_file_name is the full path name of the file containing the flow definition.
- Press Enter.
