Update Business Key

We want to change the business key due to some reason.

Have updated ACT_HI_PROCINST with new business key, but when case is routed to another call activity (inherit business key enabled) , the old value is considered instead of update business key


  1. Current Active Instance - Business Key = 10
  2. Current Active Instance Modified - Business Key = 20 and a case is routed to Call Activity
  3. Call Activity Active Instance shown as Business Key = 10

If you change ACT_HI_PROCINST only, this won’t have impact on the runtime. You also need to change it in ACT_RU_EXECUTION (or through Java).

Thanks @joram , was able to update this table also .
