BPM Actions: Sync vs Async


(system) #1

I think we still have this issue on 9.05.702, as well.

Happy Friday,

 

I have a BPM on JobEntry.Update that does a couple things and generates an alert email.  Fairly simple.  It works completely fine when it’s set to synchronously execute.  I wanted to flip it to asynchronously because due to the BPM it takes about 6 seconds for my Job to save while the BPM processes.  I have the BPM Async process running and have verified via the BPMAction.log that it’s firing every minute as intended.  When I trigger my BPM via JobEntry (in async mode), the Job record saves much faster as I had hoped.  But my email never gets sent.  I’ve looked in the BPMAction.log file and I do see that it “does something” because I see it stating “Starting Action” and “Action Completed”.  However I see nothing in the epicor-smtp.log.txt file.  I am on Vantage 8.03.409C.

 

Am I missing a step somewhere?  Shouldn’t BPMs behave the same regardless of being set to async vs sync?  TIA.
