Subflow from spin-off not running in parallel



A flow with a Split join that has subflows must run in parallel. Instead it has subflows that run run in serial, that is one after the other.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a flow with a Split join shape, where each subflow calls a Connect-SOAP.
  2. Run the flow.

Root Cause

An issue in the custom application code or rules:

According to Pega 7 help given in the link below, Split join supports parallel processing of work items at the business process level.

It does not help SOAP calls, utilities, or others automatic steps.


Select the Run in parallel check box of the Connect-SOAP step in the activity executed by the integration shape.
Use Connect-Wait method after the four Connect-SOAP calls to join the current session with the parallel connector requests.
As a best practice with Pega 7, use data pages to asynchronously load data using SOAP connectors. Navigate to the link given below.
