    New version of Process, without affecting current instances

    Tim Goodman Community Member

      Hi,

       

      We have a Long lived Process in Production.

       

      I have noticed that if a new version of that process is deployed, that any live instances of that Process will start using the new version.  i.e. Any processes that have not completed.

       

      I am just trying to work out what the best practice is to update a process version in Production?  Is there a way to ensure that any existing process instances complete using the version they were created with?

       

      Should I:

      - deploy a new process, and just try to allow for existing processes instances to stall or fail?

      - Try to create a new Application version, or parallel version of the processes running side by side. 

       

       

      If there is not a simple answer, then I see this as a major gap in the current Process Management implementation.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.

       

      Thanks
