By default, when an engine starts a new batch, it searches for all data elements with the correct statusby using a standard finder. However, if an engine runs alongside other nodes, it is necessary for it to use claims to prevent other engines from processing that same element.

Adding the ‘useClaims’ option to a flow element forces the EngineBean to claim its instances before it starts processing. These instances will be claimed with the current runId.

Note that this option only works if the target data element is claimable
