Question about Multi-Instance Operations

Jump to solution

Hi there everyone, this is my first post on the forums, but I've got some big questions about Multi-Instance Operations.

 

First off, I'd like to provide some background... I'm currently in the process of upgrading our HP OO environment from v9 to v10.10 and I'm making all the necessary flow changes to accomodate the changes brought with the new version. Overall, the process has been fairly seamless and painless, but there is one major thing I'm running into that seems to be causing some confusion for us; we have about 20 or 30 flows from v9 which utilize multi-instance flows flows to handle repetitive steps.

 

Now, the upgrade tool did format these flows in a way that I can very easily make them "work" so far as I can tell, but given how different they look, I'm very interested to find out what exactly changed from v9 to v10.

 

So far as I can tell, in v9, a multi-instance step was a single step, which was capable of running multiple instances concurrently, thus the name. However, it seems that in version 10, it is now something of an envelope that allows a user to execute an instruction chain. That's definitely a cool change, but there are some quirks that we're concerned about...

 

In version 9, a multi-instance step was capable of producing a failure step, but in version 10.10, a multi-instance lane only is capable of producing a single response. We were hoping to get an explanation of how the multi-instance lane in version 10.10 handles failures in individual instances. Does it do anything with them; does it ignore them, or does it attempt to restart/rerun those steps? If not, do they come with the expectation that the author should handle the failure in the flow lane before passing it as done?

 

Also, one more question while I'm here. Does HP have a best practice for retry logic? Right now we use a very hacky method involving counters, but it seems like there has to be a better way.

 

Thanks for your help!
