Can you re-execute a process from a certain point ?

Thank you very much for your help on this question  

I am now able to retry a failed job if something fails.

I have one more question from a monitor interaction point of view. Let say for whatever reason a process variable that is used in an exclusive gate was set to the wrong value and the process took a wrong path and now sits at a wong human task. I know how to change variables but is there a way to tell the process to re-execute from a certain activity/node in the process? We have very big processes that take many days to complete. Sometimes things go wrong and a process will follow a path it should not have and we have to fix it. It would be great if we can tell the process to run from a certain point again and not have to cancel and rerun from the start?

So do other people not have this request. Do all your processes run 100% every time?

Hey Jaco - Can you let us know which product (I'm assuming Activiti) and which version you're using? That's typically the first detail needed to offer some advice.

Hi Kristen.Thanks for the reply

I did state everything in this post BPM Process Monitor. 

I asked the question again as nobody answered it there.

Yes, it is in Activity that is part of WSO2. I want to know if you can use the API to get the process to follow another path if it took a wrong path.

Hi Jaco - Apologies for the delay. Since no one in the forum has been able to answer your question, I would suggest asking in the Activiti gitter chat channel

This mostly depends on the requirement. keeping design in mind, it makes more sense to complete/cancel a process then to resume it from a particular state. Your process design is crucial, you can provide an option to the user for sending the request back to previous task/ last performer.
