Checking for errors in parallel paths
I have a large workflow that uses parallel paths. I have 9 paths, all calling different subflows. Everything seemed to work as expected. When I drilled in for details I saw that some of the paths failed, but the overall flow completed.
When calling a subflow in a parallel path, the subflow has a success and fail status, but the Lane itself only has a success status. Therefore weather the subflow fails or not, both results lead to a success of that Lane. How can you tell if a lane fails ?
Something I did here was added a lane status flow variable that is pushed back out the each lane. Each lane had it's own named variable. Then a "checker" that looked at the flow variables making sure everything was marked as "success" (or whatever I had as the good/bad/ugly flag indicators).
How did you add the lane status variable? I don't see that the lane has any properties other than Lane Name. Did you use Set Flow Variable?
Sorry if this is a basic question. I've had limited exposure to HPOO and am taking on some complex workflows.
Thank you for your help
I face the same problem when I was performing copy/paste for a Lane, then I relized i should add lane for each new lane.
How to add lane ?
Basically you right click in the parallel split step and click add lane.
