I'm starting to learn the ins and outs of subworkflows and i'm confused as to why each time i run the master workflow it creates a copy of child (subworkflow) in my workflows folder. This is creating a ton of clutter for a workflow that needs to run daily or weekly. Can someone explain to me the function of this copy? Is there a way to stop this from happening so i only have the single child workflow that is being referenced?
Ah, okay. thank you. If i delete the copy workflows and then rerun the master workflow to completion (assuming the child completes successfully) i should only see the single workflow. Is that correct? It appears that my original child workflow has a status of failed even though i know it has run successfully in the past. Do i need to restart the child workflow to get this to clear?
you don't need to stop the first sub-workflow, if you intend on examining later on the temp:table of the failed activity. If you rerun your master workflow it will do so independently from your first failed sub-workflow.
Ah, ok. I think i understand. So it will create a copy of the subworkflow for any failed attempts but as long as the attempts are successful it will continue using the first successful version. is that right?
