Dynamic Process, Conditions and Scope by Jan Kettenis

In Oracle Integration Cloud’s Dynamic Processes activation/termination conditions can be based on case events. These events are related to the scope of the components they relate to, which implies some restrictions. The below explains how this works, and how to work around these restrictions.
A Dynamic Process or Case (as I will call it in this article) in the Oracle Integration Cloud consists of four component types: the Case itself, Stages (phases), Activities, and Milestones. An Activity or Milestone is either in a particular Stage (in the picture below Activities A to H are), or global (Activities X and Y). Cases, Processes, Stages, Activities and Miletones cannot be nested (but a Case can initiate a sub-Case via an Activity, which I will discuss another time).

Except for the case itself, all other components can explicitly be activated/enabled or terminated/completed based on conditions. For example in the dynamic process above Milestone 1 is activated once Activity A is completed, and Stage 2 is to be activated once Stage 1 is completed.
A Stage implicitly completes when all work in that stage is done (i.e. all Activities), and a Case implicitly completes when all work in the case is done. Currently the status of a Case cannot be explicitly set using conditions, but I would expect this to become possible in some next version. In the meantime there is a REST API that can be used to close or complete a case. Read the complete article here.
