can anyone tell me if it's possible to set up a notification when a process goes into a blocked state???
When a process enters a "blocked" state, it means that it has reached a point in the process design where there is not a path to follow. So that makes it impossible to even send the process into a "notification" type operator since the process is bascially stuck.
You can setup a process watch object that only shows processes that are in a certain state (such as "blocked"). But that is a manual process of actually looking to see if blocked processes show in that process watch.
There is also a web service call called "getProcessStatus" that would allow you to check the status of a particular process via a web service call. That can be done via a PAM process. But this might create extra overhead to have a process checking for a status on a regular basis.
It might be more important to find out what a process goes into a "blocked" status as that should not normally happen. Good process design should avoid that status. Blocked can also occur when you suspend a process run so just be aware that if you are suspending a process you will need to remember to release the process when you resume it so that it can complete without staying in the debug mode and ending in a blocked status.
