Incomplete executions

Incomplete executions is a folder where Action Flow executions that could not be successfully finalized due to an error are stored. Each stored incomplete execution can be resolved either manually or automatically.

Note

By default the storing of incomplete executions is disabled. To enable it, enable the Allow storing incomplete executions option in the Action Flow advanced settings.

If a module encounters an error during its operation (see the Errors resulting in incomplete executions), a new incomplete execution is added to the Incomplete executions folder. Each incomplete execution contains the Action Flows blueprint and all the bundles that can be mapped into the failed module. The list of incomplete executions can be opened by clicking on the INCOMPLETE EXECUTIONS tab on the scenario detail page:

Note

The size limit of the unresolved incomplete executions folder per organization depends on the number of operations in your pricing plan. See more in Make usage allowance.Usage allowance

If the limit is exceeded, you will get the following error:

Resolving incomplete executions

When a new incomplete execution is stored, you can resolve it as follows:

  1. Click the INCOMPLETE EXECUTIONS tab.

  2. Locate the incomplete execution you would like to resolve and click Detail.

If you first wish to see the log of all module's operations before you attempt to resolve the incomplete execution, you may resolve the incomplete execution from the HISTORY folder:

  1. Click the HISTORY tab.

  2. Locate the Action Flow failed execution log and click Details.

  3. Open the module's log where all the module's operations are shown.

  4. Locate the failed operation and click Resolve:

Options related to incomplete executions

The following options in Action Flow settings determine if and how the incomplete executions are stored:Scenario settings

  • Allow storing incomplete executions

  • Sequential processing

  • Enable data loss

Errors resulting into incomplete executions

There are several categories of errors that result into storing of incomplete executions. These may include: validation errors arising from incomplete or erroneous data, mostly because of a missing item that is expected in order to successfully process all data going through a module; or errors occurring from the final destination's unavailability because of temporary or long term connection failure (e.g. during connection to email or remote FTP server).

  1. If an error occurs on the first module in the Action Flow, the execution stops immediately and no incomplete execution is stored.

  2. If an error occurs on any other module and there is no error handler route attached, then:

    • If the error type is ConnectionError, RateLimitError, OutOfSpaceError or ModuleTimeoutError, an incomplete execution record WITH auto-retry is stored.

    • If the error type is DataError, InvalidConfigurationError, InvalidAccessTokenError, UnexpectedError, MaxFileSizeExceededError or MaxResultsExceededError, an incomplete execution record WITHOUT auto-retry is stored.

    • If the error type is anything other than the above, the execution fails.
