Unable to create Non-Interrupting events in Modeler


I am relatively new to Camunda and am no able to model a boundary non-interrupting event (message, timer, or any) in the BPMN diagram. All I am seeing as given options are interrupting events.

I am trying it on the Camunda Modeler downloaded from this site.

Being new to the tool, I might be missing something very straightforward and would appreciate any help in resolving this doubt.

Thanks in advance!!

The menu you are showing looks like the options for an intermediate event. If you put an intermediate event on the boundary of a task or subprocess etc, then you should see the options for non interuppting events…



Hello Dappy,

I suspect you are facing a issue with a simple solution. Try to attach the event dragging it from the left panel, not choosing it from the menu of the task. When I try to do it using the task menu, it shows a forbidden signal and the task turns red. I assume this menu is programmed just to quickly draw an external event, not a boundary one.

Hope it helps!
