Multiple Workflow History Lists

Jump to solution

Hi Folks,

I was just looking over the Demystifying Workflow History (Part 1) sand was wondering about multiple history lists. What would be the up side and down side of using multiple lists. Additionally is there a good out of the box way to manage the history list size automatically?

Thanks,

Patrick

Hey Patrick,

pro: you can avoid reaching thresholds, you can separate history lists e. g. by topics (onboarding, travel expenses, whatever...)

con: you need to manage more than one list, if you have multiple wf-designers you need to inform them which list to use

I personally would rather try to clean up my history list regularly than use multiple lists, although there might be some cases where mutliple lists are useful.

If you want to use ootb functionality for managin the list size take a look at list threshold configuration and list retention policies.

Regards

Philipp
