Flow to check if other flows are running

Post by billy.olvestad »

I have a problem when working on flows, that I sometimes forget to start the flow again when I'm done, or sometimes I click "start flow", and exit Switch, only to have the flow not start because of a misconfiguration in one of the elements.

To eliminate this human problem, I would like to have a flow that checks if the important flows are running, and reports if something is not running.
That way, as long as I make sure that flow is running, I can be certain that I get a message if one of the flows are not running.
Does anybody know if it is possible to have a flow check on other flows periodically, and report the status of the flow?

The app Checkup seems to be just for that.
https://www.enfocus.com/en/appstore/product/checkup
Have you ever forgotten to restart a flow after debugging it?
Have you ever forgotten to check the remaining space on a disk before leaving on vacation?

If so, or if you never want to find yourself in this situation, this app is made for you.
Because error is human, and this kind of problem can cost you hours of production, this app allows you to automate the generation of alerts.

When triggered by an incoming job, checkup will check :

If a given list of flow are running
Disk space usage with warning and error setting for critical folder disk :
Temporary file path for your OS
Dataset path
Backing path

I have just bought the app, because we could also use it monitor our flows.
As you, I have often forgot to start some flows :)

The flow below checks certain flows every 5 minutes. If one flow from each group is not running it sends an e-mail formatted like below.
The groups are based on certain flows for certain customers.
I use the JSON from the Checkup-app in the app Create file from template to generate the HTML and use that as the mail-body.
The ones with the red x is not running.
