Using Pools - impact on user management and process visibility in tasklist app

Some questions about using pools in the modeler.

  • Are pools supported in the engine in general?
  • What is the impact on user management in the process engine and process visibility in tasklist app? Have pool or lane names any relation to users, groups in the webapp admin?
  • I designed a process with one pool an two lanes. Everything works fine as expected. When adding a second pool just to visualize an incoming message from my first pool the process is not visible in the tasklist “Create Process”.

Pools are indeed supported - you can have 2 processes in the same file. The issue you’re having is probably that your second pool is not marked as “executable” and so the engine treats it like documentation.,

Lanes on the other hand have absolutely no bearing on execution. they’re simply used for visualization.
