Problem summary

  • Problem Description:
    An 'Event Subprocess' with 'Message' start event and no attached
    UCA starts and navigates to the next activity.
    Moreover, if 'Repeatable' is selected the instance runs into an
    endless loop.
    
    Problem Summary:
    Wrong behavior implemented for an 'Event Subprocess' activity
    with 'Message' start event and no attached UCA.
    It is not intended that the event subprocess immediately
    navigates to the next activity in this scenario.
    In combination with 'Repeatable' property selected an endless
    loop is triggered which causes high resource consumption and the
    server seems to hang.
    A side-effect of this scenario with 'Repeatable' selected is
    that Process Designer will not switch to Inspector view when
    using the Playback function.
    

Problem conclusion

  • An 'Event Subprocess' with 'Message' start event and no attached
    UCA waits at start activity and causes no longer an endless
    loop.
