Bypass a timer in a running workflow

Have you ever been testing a workflow in sub-prod, or supporting some production effort that required you to “speed things up a little?”

Does your workflow have an unreasonably long timer within it?

Why not skip it?

You can adjust the actual end time of a workflow timer by editing its sys_trigger record.

1. Get the sys_id of the workflow context in question:

2. Open up the “System Scheduler>Scheduled Jobs” module

3. Search the Name column for you sys_id, and change the Next action column to whatever you need

4. Be thankful you’re not waiting anymore
