This step restarts a step while a process is running.
This is useful in troubleshooting to test a step after it fails without having to restart the entire process. Any dependencies will remain intact, for example, if a failed step was restarted and ran correctly, then it would also trigger the following steps in the process.
We will use the following running process as an example in this tutorial. Notice that step 3.1 Run Excel Calculation Model 2 has failed and step 3.2 Copy cell formulas is waiting for step 3.1 to successfully complete before running.
In order to restart step 3.1 Run Excel Calculation Model 2:
- Right click the step that you want to be restarted. Here we have selected step 3.1 Run Excel Calculation Model 2.
- Select "Restart this step" from the contextual menu.
