This process checks the status of the previous run in the process chain that the run was inserted into.
You use this process if execution of a subsequent process depends on the status of the previous run in the chain. This applies if you want to automatically switch an InfoPackage to delta transfer in one process chain following initialization and thus refrain from modeling two process chains, one to initialize the delta transfer and one to execute it.
The process is not persistent and therefore is not defined with a variant. Once the process has been completed, two events can be triggered, both of which trigger follow-on processes:
To add the process to a process chain, select it from the General Services process category in the Process Chain Maintenance transaction (RSPC) and drag it to your process chains. Confirm the Insert "Is the previous run in the process chain still active?" dialog. Now connect the process with the start process and follow-on process in the chain.
