Instance Archiving and Purging in Oracle Process Cloud Service by Antonis Antoniou


Archiving and purging your process instances systematically can improve drastically the performance of your processes. This task has been simplified in Oracle Process Cloud Service that gives you the option to run archives on demand or automate this task via scheduled jobs.

All archived instances (data) are stored in the Oracle Cloud Storage Service that is bundled with your Oracle Process Cloud Service. Archived instances are compressed in a zip file and once an archive task is processed, you will receive an email that will contain the link to the zip file that you can click on it to download the archived instances.

Purge will remove the BPM runtime information. Purge runs as a separate job and runs directly on the database. So when you configure archiving and purging, then two separate jobs will be executed independently of each other. So let’s see how you can schedule instance archiving and purging.

Configuring instance archiving and purging is an administrative task, therefore from the Oracle Process Cloud Service home page click on the “Configure” banner to go to the application settings. Read the complete article here.
