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 ?

Re: Checking for errors in parallel paths

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).

Re: Checking for errors in parallel paths

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

Re: Checking for errors in parallel paths

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.
