Problem summary

  • BPM handles attached intermediate timers with repeatable flag in
    
    the following way:
    - When the task is started, the first execution of the timer is
    scheduled
    
    - Each time when a repeatable timer is triggered, it schedules
    the next execution of the timer
    
    When the model specifies that the timer should be triggered a
    specific interval before / after the Due Date of the
    activity or before / after a custom date, the algorithm contains
    a flaw. It calculates the scheduled time for the repeated
    firing of the event in the same way as the time for the first
    firing. This leads to the fact that after the first instance of
    the event is triggered, the calculated time for the next
    execution is already reached and the following instances of the
    event are immediately executed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Modified the calculation for the repeated event execution. As
    
    soon as the date / time for the first execution is reached,
    add the specified time interval to the current time and
    reschedule the event with this target date.
    
    Problem fixed with BPM V8.0.1.1 (internal defect).
