Process refresh

Process refresh

Quite often, within an organization, some internal or external changes prompt for changes in a process. For example, if a corporate office is moved, then the return address for all outgoing mails changes. In such a situation, it becomes necessary to replace the existing process by a modified process. Typically, this calls for versioning, as explained in Process template versioning. However, when the older versions need not be maintained, the installed process can be directly replaced, with the running process instances adapting seamlessly to the new process.
Note: During process refresh, do not to carry out any activity until the refresh is completed.
