Ability to use Conditional Start Events: activated by Incident Creation

Likely a feature request:

@thorben is there a way to have a conditional start event (such as a Event Sub-Process) that is triggered by the generation of a Incident in the process?

Hi Stephen,

That is currently not possible. In terms of workarounds, you could create an incident handler that sets a variable which in turns triggers the conditional event. Make sure to test it properly though, in particular when the conditional event is interrupting and would delete the incident.


Looking at this: Best way to get Execution within a Incident Handler? for next steps.

So i came up with this as a open ended solution:

Basically the incident handler script can be applied to the BPMN, so when something happens you can have fully dynamic control of what to do: so we can execute changes on a process instance.
