A new flow version gets created every time a flow is published or run. Boomi Flow includes a full versioning capability for flow edits. Think of the flow versions as a ‘release log’, that allows you to easily rollback to a previously ‘released’ version. You can access previous versions of your flow, by clicking the Properties icon on the right-hand-side navigation.
Keep in mind though! When an older version of a flow is re-activated, the design time version of the flow doesn’t change. The Flow platform does not version modeling data, only snapshot data. This means, you can not rollback a flow in the drawing tool.. You can set a previous version of the flow as the ‘default’ version to be used at runtime (i.e. the version that is used when just the Flow ID is given, without a Flow Version ID).
- Click the Properties icon in the Flow canvas.
This opens the Flow properties dialog box.
- Open the Advanced options.
- Scroll down till you come to the Versions section, which lists all previous versions of the flow.
- Click the check sign under Actions next to the flow version you want to activate.
This activates the previous version of the flow.
|Note: The Flow Version ID stores the unique identifier generated by the Boomi Flow engine for each version of the flow. Every time you change the flow, a new version ID is generated. You can find the Flow Version ID at the bottom of your canvas.|
