Process instances

*The list of instances to be migrated can be specified explicitly with the list of instance IDs. It is also possible to get the list of qualified instances by using the default filter conditions and also with the user-defined filter conditions.
*The migrated process instance name contains the original process instance name suffixed with the constant "#IM#" and followed by the new process instance ID.
*Dynamically modified process instances cannot be migrated. For more information about dynamic process instances, refer to Working with dynamic process instances.
*Process instances that are subprocess of other process instances are not migrated.
*Migration of process instances with rules is not supported.
*When you migrate a process instance from a source process template to a target process template, the events of the source process instance are not migrated. As a result, the target process instance’s audit history cannot show the worksteps that were completed in the source process instance before migration. Also, no audit history is displayed for the target process instance immediately after migration, because there are no events present in BPM Events table for the target process instance. The audit history for the target process instance can be seen only after some BP Server operations (like completing a workstep) are performed on it.
