Usage of start Workflow Advanced option in Workflow Manager

+2 votes

Configure one workflow instance to run multiple times concurrently. Each instance has the same source, target, and variable parameters. The Integration Service identifies each instance by the run ID. Each workflow instance name and configure a workflow parameter file for the instance. You can define different sources, targets, and variables in the parameter file.

When processing transactions using a PowerCenter workflow, data belonging to multiple entities (e.g. regions) may be present in different flat files. These files may be available for processing at the same time. The usual approach is to process them sequentially by running the same workflow for each of the flat files. To reduce the processing time it will be necessary to run a separate instance of the workflow for each of the flat files concurrently by using the Concurrent Execution feature of the workflow.

When the workflow needs to be run with different instances or different names with a unique instance, and also with different parameter files for each instance, the following solution works out.
