Pausing or stopping a flowchart run

When you pause a running flowchart, branch, or process, the server stops running but saves all of the data that was already processed. When you stop a flowchart run, the results of any currently running processes are lost and a red "X" appears on those processes.

About this task

You can pause a run to free up computing resources on the server, for example. After you pause a run, you can continue the run or stop it. After you stop a run, you can continue the run from the point at which it stopped.
Note: If you have the appropriate permissions, you can also control flowcharts from the Monitoring page.


  1. On a flowchart page, open the Run menu Arrow.
  2. To pause the run, select Pause. To stop the run, select Stop.
