When you publish an eSpace containing modified process flows, all of the executing process instances that were based on the former process flows are automatically upgraded by the OutSystems Platform. However, the success of these upgrades depends on both the kind of changes you made to the process flow and the current execution state of process instances. An impact analysis determines whether a process instance is suspended or upgraded to execute the new process flow.
When designing processes, the impact of changes made to process flows is analyzed for all active process instances that are executing previous versions of those process flows. Changes with impact include:
Learn more about the impact of these changes in the following topics:
There are two ways of running an Impact Analysis:
All process instances that have their execution suspended have to be analyzed in Service Center to decide whether to continue or stop them.
