2490409 - Process Archiving using NetWeaver BPM


This document describes how process instances can be archiving using the archiving services provided by SAP NetWeaver BPM Java Platform. It provides a description about how to schedule process archiving in order to automate the archiving. Archiving process instances help to remove the process instances which are completed and no more required by the business.

In BPM process archiving has two phases.
  1. Retrieval of the process instances from the Database and persisting the instances in the destination.
  2. Deletion of the archived process instances from the Database.
Process archiving improves the overall performance of the system. It keeps the database with active process instances and reduces the data base size.
