Wait on Resume Not working as Expected for Bulk Processing

Hi There!

I was testing out a process which would push documents with low confidence to Action Center.

While this works as expected when I process the jobs one by one(heading over to Action Center, validating extraction results and resuming the process), but when I tried validating all documents at the same time and then hit resume, the bot only processes the last item I validated on Action Center, multiple times(more on that later).

For example, say I have five documents to process, out of which three have low confidence.

If I process them one by one, Action Center works great, but if I process all three documents in one go and hit resume, it processes document No.3 three times(the last document that I validated on Action Center)

Is there any way to process items in bulk once it reaches Action Center, and then have the suspended process resume and process all items?

Kind Regards,

Hi @ashwin.ashok,

Can you confirm which loop structure you are using for your workflow? For each or parallel for each?

To be able to process multiple docs, parallel for each should be used.

Secondly, when actions are completed from action center, you don’t have to manually click resume. This is meant to work in an unattended mode.

For this to work seamlessly, please deploy your process on orchestrator, run or from there. As soon as your process will hit action center task, process will go suspended and once action is completed, next available bot will automatically resumes the process for completed actions one by one.
