When is parent_task_id_ not null

Hi,

I’m trying to understand user task behavior. I tired sequential and parallel creation of user tasks using multi-instance feature.

May I know parent_task_id_ column will be populated or used by engine?

Thanks,
Suhas Madap.

Hi Suhas Madap,

It is possible to create standalone tasks via TaskService#newTask and then set the parent task id via Task#setParentTaskId. It won’t be populated via regular BPMN user tasks, though.

Cheers,
Thorben
