Flexi Tasks (x8) got blocked in Parallel Actions

Hi!

I am facing an issue that appears randomly but I don't know how to solve it.

I have a block of parallel actions where there are 8 Flexi Approval Tasks that run in parallel.

The Parallel Actions block should finish once the 8 Approvals are finished.

 

The problem is that in this case, all the Flexi Approvals were finished, but the workflow never continued.

 

Image 1: The next action that should have been executed was "Log in History"

Image 2: all the actions that are under the "Approve" of each Flexi Approval Task are in green, so they have been executed.

I finish each block with a "Confirm Pending Actions".

 

Do anyone have idea how should I solve this incident?

 

Thanks in advanded!

Re: Flexi Tasks (x8) got blocked in Parallel Actions

Hi Team,

I have removed the last "Commit Pending Actions" actions from each branch but some workflows are also getting stucked.

I have now added a "Pause Action" above the "Log History" but I assume the problem is that workflow do not proceed over Parallel Actions.

If anyone can help me I will be grateful.

Agustin:

Como estas?

Have you ever make it work with a limited quantity of flexitasks? For example 2 FlexiTasks?

Try to find the limit of concurrent flexi tasks and reduce the parallel actions with parallel actions nested inside another parallel actions.

For example: Create 1 parallel action and inside it 2 other parallel actions and inside those 2 actions set 4 flexi tasks on each one.

I can't read this but under each approval for each parallel block I'd set a variable that the approval has been set. After the parallel blocks, I'd do a run if to make sure all are set to 'true', if so do what you want to do. If 'false' do what you want.

What exact version are you on?  A few versions back there were some problems with tasks locking in parallel actions?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Mike:

Nintex Version: 3.0.2.1

Hi Fernando/burkslm:

Some weeks ago I have splitted the parallel actions (from x8 I reduced it to 2 blocks of x4 parallel actions).

We are currently testing the solution.

Thank you all for your answers.

Hopefully you would be done with the testing. Do you have any suggestions to make. I have got a similar scenario.

Re: Flexi Tasks (x8) got blocked in Parallel Actions

Are there any suggestions to make regarding such scenario

- parallel actions having multiple flexi tasks

We are still developing and wanted to know if its a feasible approach or it not a recommended path to go forward
