Parallel gateway

Estimated reading: 1 minute 70 views

Parallel gateway activity is used for synchronizing flows within a process flow and creating parallel flows at the same time. Contrary to Exclusive gateway activity, all conditions are calculated.

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.

Parallel gateways are used to model situations where more than one path is executed in parallel. These gateways do not have any conditions since all paths are always executed. To join parallel branches, use another parallel gateway. The execution only continues once all paths have been completed.
