the compensation is not working as I am expecting in my process, maybe someone can tell me why.
My external task “Absage senden” is running and waiting to do something for compensation.
The token of the process instance is on task “Pensum umsetzen”.
Then I send the interrupting messageevent “löschen”.
This should end the task and should throw the compensation event.
So I expected that the token would come to my external Task “Absage senden” which is associated with my compensation boundary event on “Pensum umsetzen”.
Instead it seems that the process is just finished without doing the compensation.
+) is there something wrong in my understanding of how compensation works
+) in the modeler there is the possibility to define an activity reference on the throwing event.
What does this mean and what happens if I define a reference or not. As I understood, throwing a compensation event will trigger all existing compensation boundary events of already completed tasks.
Or is this a possibility to execute just one specific compensation event ?
