Processes stuck in Aborting status for long time

Processes are stuck in Aborting status for more than one day, and they never go to Aborted. BG restart does not fix the problem. What can be done? 

Reset Aborting process to Aborted status


Release : All Supported Clarity releases


  1. First, allow some time for those processes to get set to Aborted. This sometimes happens if there is a high load on BG.
  2. If after a day or more the processes are still stuck, please use the following solution:
    On the database, run the query:
    UPDATE bpm_run_processes
    SET status_code = 'BPM_PIS_ABORTED'
    WHERE  status_code ='BPM_PIS_ABORTING'


    This will set all Aborting processes to Aborted. A restart is not required.
  3. Now go ahead and run the Delete Process Instance job to clean them up.
