Event gateway

Estimated reading: 1 minute 70 views

Event gateway activity represents a branching point in the Process where the alternative paths that follow the Gateway are based on Events that occur, rather than the evaluation of Expressions using Process data (as with an Exclusive or Inclusive Gateway).

ExclusiveWhen it receives a special job from a specific process example, it makes jobs run in order.
Flow orderThe order in which the outgoing flows are evaluated and stored in the XML representation of the process. The order of the outgoing flows is managed by clicking on the up and down arrows icon.

Event Gateways are used to model branches which are depending on the occurrence of two or more events. The process execution stops at the gateway and resumes once one of the events connected via Sequence Flow occur.
