Item Types with Status Deferred Are Not Picked Up By The Workflow Background Engine

(Doc ID 1160404.1)

Last updated on MAY 29, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Workflow - Version 11.5.8 to 12.2 [Release 11.5 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When submitting the request 'Workflow Background Engine' with parameter 'Process Deferred' = Yes, the item types are not picked up for processing.

The output of the script 'Workflow Background Engine Data Collection Script' from <Note 781070.1> shows the DEFERRED activities.

Also in the output of the wfstatus.sql script the following can be seen (e.g. for item type REQAPPRV):

Start of Approve Requisition Process/Wait for DEFERRED #NULL.


Recently AOL CP 11.5 Rollup Patch G was applied.
