How to import to a particular stage in a Business Process Flow with multiple entity types along the flow RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    We have a business process flow that goes from lead to opportunity to project (a custom entity). The process works perfectly, but now that we're trying to import data into different stages of the process, we see there is a problem introduced by the fact that the import doesn't generate the BusinessProcessFlowInstance record, and so you cannot move either forward or backward off the current entity, e.g. if you import at a stage that references the opportunity record, you can't move forward to the project entity stages, or backward to the lead stages.

    Does anyone know a SUPPORTED way of generating these records? The obvious unsupported way is to generate them in SQL directly...
