Switching Business Process Flows with a Workflow

editSubscribe (0) ShareShare
Posted on by 57
The outcome I'm after is having a case use the appropriate Business process Flow based on criteria from the case. For example, I have the following Business Process Flows:
Manage Order
Credit Card Onboarding
When cases are created, I want to, with a workflow, say what Business Process Flow is active based on my criteria. So my workflow would look something like:
If the case title contains /manage order/, then set the active Business Process Flow to /Manage Order/. 
If the case title contains /Credit Card Install/, then set the active Business Process Flow to /Credit Card Onboarding/.
I'm reading that SetProcess and ProcessID are deprecated. Hoping I can find a simple solution to what seems like a simple task. 
2023 release wave 2 enabled
Server version: 9.2.24012.00238
Client version: 1.4.7144-2401.2
Please let me know if I can elaborate further.

    The ability to branch Business Process Flows (BPFs) is a very useful component of Dynamics 365.

    It looks like this plugin has the Set Process / Set Process Stage options I would need:
    Curious if anyone can share their experience with this plugin and specifically the aforementioned options?
