How to set the requests frequency (time delay) of External Task Client (based on SpringBoot) to Camunda? What is the default value? I only found “lock-duration” property, but it specifies for how many milliseconds an External Task is locked.
you can balance the network load and the latency between task creating and task work with either the exponential backoff and long polling.
More details on the backoff are here: External Task Client Spring Boot Starter | docs.camunda.org
Long polling can be controlled setting
async-response-timeout. External Task Client Spring Boot Starter | docs.camunda.org
More details about long polling is here: External Tasks | docs.camunda.org
Hope this helps, Ingo
