Execution Instance

The execution instance functionality presents long-running services current state.

The list presents the deployed services as group/artifact/version.

A long-running instance is defined as a service that is waiting for external input to continue. A decision service that would take 5 seconds to execute would never show up on this screen because it is never waiting for an external input to continue.

From the list, clicking on a service brings up the service specific instances view.

Specific service instances

When viewing the running instances of a specific service deployment, the following information is provided:


The creation timestamp of this instance.


The user defined name of the instance. If tags were defined, they are also displayed in that column.


The updated timestamp of this instance. This timestamp represents the last moment the instance reached a wait state.

It is also possible to copy the instance identifier or delete an instance using the actions in the last column.

Clicking on a row will bring a user interface presenting the details of the resume points that can be used to trigger the service instance.

To simplify access from outside, specific service instances can also be accessed with permalink.
