Forecast/Autoforecast on a ForEach Workflow embedded in a standard Workflow maintains Active status


Article ID: 84449


Updated On:


CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


Error Message :

When a Workflow contains a ForEach sub-Workflow, any attempt to forecast or autoforecast will show:
1. the parent Workflow with a "Preparing" status
2. The ForEach Workflow with an "active" status 

1. Create a FE Workflow with dummy Vara and Job
2. Create a standard Workflow and place the FE Workflow inside
3. Execute the standard Workflow recurring with a 1 hr interval
4. Perform an autoforecast

When this is the only item in the Activities window/Process Monitoring Perspective, the autoforecast shows two results: The standard Workflow and the ForEach Workflow.

The standard will be in "Preparing" status and the FE will be active. 

Note: If the FE Workflow is executed recurring outside of the parent Workflow, it forecasts properly. 



Cause type:
Root Cause: ​Forecast does not work for FOREACH workflows. The calculation does not work and the forecast does not show an end time.
