Guidelines when using Live Processes


Live processes are an easy way to have your non-complex processes available on the Production Environment.

For complete details about this feature, refer to Live Processes.


When to use Live Processes ?

If you're unsure whether your process is simple enough to be a Live process, think about what your process needs.

If your process complies with the Live process available features, then it is a good candidate.

If it requires any of the additional powerful features available in Studio, then that will be the way to go.


The table bellow can help you decide where's best to build your process based upon the features Live Processes support across different aspects.
