The Background Runtime Service (BRS) is an integral part of the functionality of Cora SeQuence. BRS is a Windows service that includes several threads. Each of these threads is responsible for performing one of the following actions:

  • Redirect workflows
  • Send emails
  • Control workflow status
  • Execute the Database Listener activity
  • Calculate workflow statistics
  • Sync work with other BRS instances
  • Clean the table of temporary attachments
  • Move closed process instances to separate tables
  • Create reminders
  • Resume workflow execution

Each of the above threads includes configuration options, such as how often and when to perform the action.
