You can set the behavior for resuming a failed run for each custom workflow. The default workflows in the library use the default system setting for resuming a failed workflow run.

You can change the default system behavior creating a system property in the Control Center. See Set Custom Properties for Resuming Failed Workflow Runs.


Verify that you have permissions to edit the workflow.
