Creating checkpoints

Overview

Creating a checkpoint in a flow will create a backup of the entity in its history folder. This makes it possible to restore from the checkpoint backup file. The difference of a checkpoint vs. a normal or auto-save is that a checkpoint backup file has a specific name. Manual and automatic saves have generated names.

Example

Start by navigating to a Flow from the designer Folders. Inside a Flow locate and select Checkpoint in the action bar to Create a back-up for that instance of the flow.
