If a process chain is made to run as meta chain then it will only run when it is triggered by some other process chain.

It can never run as direct scheduled. Only if in the start variant it is changed from Metachain to Immediate, it will run as immediate.

If you want the process chain to run as a meta chain then make the start variant as Metachain and just activate the chain. Don't schedule it.

If this local PC is already included in Metachain then you would need to change the local pc - start variant - direct scheduling to Start using meta chain and Schedule Metachain or schedule local PC - start variant - put date 31.12.9999 it will avoid multiple runs

otherwise

It will trigger from Metachain and from direct scheduling as well .. it will run two times (assume you have schedule local pc periodically)

thanks to both for yours answers.

the variant scheduled as direct processing has inmediate option, so it doesn't run. unless ran manually by an user. so it doesn't duplcate the data, but to be tidy, i think we sholud changed to meta chain.

do you agree?

Yes, if you want the process chain to run as a meta chain then make the start variant as Metachain and just activate the chain. Don't schedule it.
