BPMN2 — DataAssociations: How do we support literals?

  • Key: BPMN2-163
  • Legacy Issue Number: 14717
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Object Management Group ( Mariano Benitez)
  • Summary:

    DataAssociations and Assigments correctly allow mapping between data elements.

    Now, there is no way to do a simple mapping of a literal to a data input.

    An assignment could be used to solve the problem, but then you are forced to include a dummy sourceRef to fullfil the requirement of at least one source ref.

    A simple solution would be to allow 0 zero source refs, and keeping the restriction of the scope of the assignment to the souce refs.

    As per 5/4 BPMN team meeting - the issue is valid but to be deferred.
