How to retry a failed service-task by incrementing the retry count?

Is it possible to manually retry a failed service-task with an incident by incrementing the retry count via Camunda cockpit?

Until recently we have used service-tasks as external-tasks. With external-tasks, retry via cockpit works out of the box. Now we are trying to use the java class implementation (AbstractBpmnActivityBehavior), which suits our use-case much better, but we haven’t yet figured out how to enable retry.

Any hints are much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

FYI: I’ve asked the same question at StackOverflow.

Hello @stphngrtz ,

to enable retry behaviour, you will need to set „async before“ on a service task. Then, you will be able to configure a retry time cycle according to ISO8601.

I hope this helps
