Configuring Unique Workflow Instances

Configuring Unique Workflow Instances

You can configure more than one instance of a workflow and run each instance at the same time. When you configure a workflow instance, you provide a unique name for the instance and configure a workflow parameter file for the instance.
Configure workflow instances to run a workflow with different sources and targets. For example, your organization receives sales data from three divisions. You create a workflow that reads the sales data and writes it to the database. You configure three instances of the workflow. Each instance has a different workflow parameter file that defines which sales file to process. You can run all instances of the workflow concurrently.
When you start the workflow, you can choose which instances to run. When you configure a concurrent workflow to run with unique instances, you can run the instances concurrently. To run one instance multiple times concurrently, configure the workflow to run with the same instance name.
