Desktop Flow runs stuck as Queued



Today we noticed that there is a bunch of PAD flows that are stuck as Queued in the monitoring page. They do not show up under Machine Groups, only here. Wondering whether that is something we should worry about and/or how to remove these unnecessary runs.
Machine Group queues are working fine meanwhile with new runs (apart from starting the flows with an indeterminable and random delay)

@rolign we are having the same issue that desktop flow runs are stuck on 'queued' and won't run in unattended mode (run fine in attended) did you find a resolution?

Not really the same issue, I guess, but we did face problems with flows not starting - we did a full restart on all VMs in the particular machine group - they started to work again after.

Having the same issue, did you ever find a solution? The options like 'see parent flow run' and 'cancel parent flow run' appear greyed out, so we can't remove the listings. 

Nope, did not find a solution to this one - I suggest registering a support ticket via the Admin portal.

Hello There,


In case to resolve this problem you have two options on the table

  1. Setup a flow as "High Priority" - perm solution


       2. Go to "See desktop flow in queue" and change the priority of your flow, it will release the flow to the first availible node.
