Description:

When a process calls a sub-process and the process is finished but the sub-process workflow is still running, if you run the Delete Process instance Job, the running sub-process is also deleted

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a subprocess with an action item and will stop moving until the action item is satisfied

  2. Create a process with an action item

  3. Once that action item is satisfied it will move to the next step calling the subprocess

    Note: the process will finish but the subprocess is waiting for the action item to be satisfied before it finishes

  4. Run the Delete Process Instance job

Expected Result: Subprocess instance will still be running.

Actual Result: Subprocess instance is also deleted.

Solution:

WORKAROUND:

None
