Process Instance availability


I have a huge process that I kick start using the REST API call to engine-rest. As the process is huge and chins to subprocesses it take a while for the whole process to start.
If I go back to the rest call again during this phase and check if the process instance is active, I get the response that it is inactive. how can I mark the process has started, so that it shows the right information when I check w using REST API?

Will adding the Async after at"Start" node in the process will make the correct status available in the subsequent REST API calls?



Hi @adat,

you’re on the right way. Using asynchronous continuation would reduce the time when you get the response. You can use it on the start event or an other activity.

Best regards,
