Number of State Machines in a Workflow

Hello Everyone,

Hoping that someone can answer this question(s):

How many State Machines can you have in a workflow?

If there is a certain number of State Machines that can not be exceeded what are some of the issues that can arise?

What is the best way to troubleshoot issues with State Machines?

Thank you

Hi, Sean Docherty‌!

Have you looked here?

Or here?

I don't see anything about a limit to the number, but it looks like guidelines to avoid problems. Hope that helps some while you wait for an expert to reply.

Re: Number of State Machines in a Workflow

Hello ‌,

Thank you for your reply on this question. No I had not looked in the two areas that you have referenced.

In doing a bit of reading, I did have a Change State Machine object at the end of all State Machine "flows", but on one of them I did have the End Workflow object. I now believe that this might have been the reason for the issues that I was having with trying to publish my workflow.

In this case I have decided to go the long route and recreate my workflow to reduce errors and hopefully other issues.

Thanks Frank
