Clean up dirty data in HPOO 10.60 DB?

Hello all,

we are starting to migrate to HPOO 10.60 after 5 years running on HPOO 9.x After first tests we recognized that some data will not be cleaned automatically in the database (in case of workflow failed to execute => canceled) For example an acquire lock will not be released 😞 Why ?

After some inverstigation we found out that acquire locks are strored in OO_RUNTIME_VALUE_STORE and can be deleted manually. In other cases we had to truncate OO_EXECUTION_STATES, OO_EXECUTION_QUEUES and so on and so on...

Is it possible to provide a stored procedure or function in OOSH to clean up such dirty data in a secure way?

Best regards,

Hello Alex,

Thank you for contacting HPE Forum. 


My name is Andrey, I am from the OO/CSA team. 

Regarding your question,  unfortunately, the truncates that we provide to clean those tables are the only procedure.

Hi Alex,

Regarding the lock problem - what occurs to you in the event of failed or cancelled flow is abnormal. The lock should be removed. If you can reproduce the problem I suggest you open support ticket and give all the details - including logs and screenshot captures of the application so that the support team will be able to replicate.

Regarding the cleaning procedures - i recommand you check the database maintanence document that HPE OO has and also (very important) the purging flows that are part of the HPE Solutions content pack (You will find out that there are procedures of purging execution data, debugging data, audit data, index maintanence and so on).

Hope it helps,
