Timer events read from external service


we have a central database with the cron syntax Parameters für Jobs.
We want to link it to Zeebe Timers.

it there a way to update Zeebe Timer Parameters by API?
Or is it possible to write an extension that the Zeebe Timer reads its timer parameters from an external service?

Best regards

Hello @Stefan_Klose ,

zeebe timer parameters are defined in the process model. This means that they can either be hardcoded or be an expression that can use the process instance variables.

The way a dynamic timer definition would then work is that you submit all required timer definitions on process instance start.

Would this satisfy your requirements?
