Export / import process instances from a backup in case of disaster or loss of data
Sometimes it could happens that a process instance get lost, and we would being able to import this instance without impacting on the running instance.
Let me pose 2 examples:
During a disaster a lot of instance could have been lost, but at the same otner process instances were generated and running on their own, and other instances proceeded and eventually operated on external system.
In such case a restore would delete all the new process instances and reset the operation done by the remained instances.
Some completed instances have been deleted, but for business needs it is needed to keep them active for some more time before their natural cleanup.
If they have been deleted by error, actually it is only possible to restore it via a backup, but this could cause a major issue (see Example 1)
On both cases, for restoring few/a lot of instances, but not all, the only way to do it is restoring the DB to a consistent state. But this is a fixed point in time causing the reset of everything happened after.
Having a way to do it would have more flexibility in case of disaster recovery.
