Execution history table

Highlight execution paths and rollbacks to locate activities that may have been left in an unresolved state.

About this task

Rollbacks, cancels, and deletions during the execution of a workflow can prevent some activities from fully completing. Use highlighting in the execution history table to determine which activities in the workflow were left in an unresolved state.

Procedure

  1. Run the workflow.
  2. Navigate to Workflow > All Contexts.
  3. Select a context to troubleshoot.
  4. In the Workflow Context form, select the Workflow Activity History related list.
  5. Right-click an activity and select Workflow Debug > Toggle Execution Path Highlighting from the context menu.

    All activities in that execution path are highlighted in a color selected by the platform. The debug path shows all activities that completed successfully during the workflow.

  6. Right-click a rollback activity and select Workflow Debug > Toggle Rollback Highlighting from the context menu.

    The platform highlights the rollback path (restarted activities) in a different color. Each color represents a group of activities that were part of the same rollback execution. The highlighting includes the activity that initiated the rollback. If you right-click an activity that was not part of a rollback, no rows are highlighted.

    Note: The rollback activity itself appears in both execution path and rollback highlighting.

  7. To remove highlighting, right-click in the list and select an option to clear execution path or rollback highlighting.

    You can clear individual rollback paths or all rollback highlighting.
