How to search Process Management by record name?

Hi, thanks for taking the time to look at this query.

When troubleshooting Process Definitions, the Process Management page is very useful under /#pmse_Inbox/layout/casesList

However, with 80k processes, you cant rely on "next 20 records" to try and identify the record in particular so you can view the history or view the flow image.

Filtering is limited to Status, and Search is limited to the Process Name.

Apparently, you used to be able to search by Record Name in 7.11.

80865 Bug here for the newer versions of Sugar: SugarCRM 

Does anyone know of any code changes that would allow me to search this module by record name?
(navigating the DB is becoming tedious for this task)

Many thanks!

  • Maybe you will need to override the
    This might be a good starting point.
  • Thank you James for your investigation.

    It might be helpful to get a feedback from Sugar engineering team how they plan to proceed with case 80865.

  • Yes!  I submitted a Case in May 2018 and was told "it's a defect" (# 80865).  We remain "standard" in the On-Demand environment and have no intention of tweaking code.  The Bug is listed as a High Priority and now we're up to Release 10.2 with no fix in sight.  I'm trying to be patient...

  • Hi everyone,

    I checked with our engineering team on bug 80865 and it is associated with and dependent on a larger project that currently does not have a determined timeline. The bug has already received an escalation and we’ll continue to update the bug report as it receives any updates.

  • Hello colleagues,

    Probably you can get regular search capabilities with no waiting for development to provide enhancements

    I suppose a custom module with searches you need could be added to Sugar with Studio, then configure a logic hook for Processes entity to add/refresh a record to that module on Process data change, e.g. Process status change.
    I'm not a developer but it looks configurable with Logic Builder.

    If still interested, I can investigate this approach and post the results here
