I deployed the BPMN file in Zeebe. but I don’t know how to start!!!

Hi @regojoyson,

when a workflow with a timer start event is deployed then the broker create the instances according to the timer definition.

In the workflow, the timer start event is defined with a cycle R/P10M. That means it will create a new instance every 10 months (as long as this workflow exists).

Thanks for the reply.

If I want cancel this instance /workflow permanently, how should i do that…?

Workflow instances can be cancel by cancel command.

Currently, a workflow can not be undeployed (see But you can deploy a new version of the workflow (with the same BPMN process id). While deploying the new version, the timer subscription of the previous version is canceled.
