Individual flows can be set to active or inactive through the Start and Stop buttons.
Simply select one or more flows in your app, and click the Start or Stop button.
|Starting a flow doesn’t imply triggering its endpoints, it just makes it active if previously set inactive.|
In some special cases, you might have apps that are explicitly set up to start and stop flows automatically, according to any criteria you want. In these cases, this behavior is carried out by logic in the applications running inside the Mule runtime itself, and Runtime Manager is unaware of the logic behind these changes.
If you click Start or Stop for a flow in the Flow Management tab, Runtime Manager will continually enforce the active or inactive state onto the flow, regardless of any changes that the Mule runtime may attempt.
If you want your flows to freely transition states between active and inactive according to the behavior set up in application logic running in the Mule runtime, then you can click Unmanage to set the flow to Unmanaged. Then the flow will no longer be affected by the Start and Stop buttons in this tab.
