BPMN2 — Tasks vs Global Tasks

  • Key: BPMN2-198
  • Legacy Issue Number: 14779
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: NIST ( Mr. Conrad Bock)
  • Summary:

    The various kinds of tasks could also be global tasks. Section
    10.2.7. Global Task says:

    There are different types of Tasks identified within BPMN to
    separate the types of inherent behavior that Tasks might
    represent. This is true for both Global Tasks and standard Tasks,
    where the list of task types is the same for both. For the sake of
    efficiency in this specification, the list task types is presented
    once on page 167.

    "Globalness" should be an attribute of Task, so the taxonomy of
    tasks does not need to be repeated.

  • Disposition: Resolved — BPMN 2.0
  • Disposition Summary:

    We do not consider making all tasks global something necessary. Besides simplicity and simetry, there is no added value to business users, since the refactoring would
    be done by tooling anyway, so they would not see a difference if the metamodel changes in one way or the other.
    We consider this issue to be part of this FTF, maybe a new RFP can handle it.
    Disposition: Closed, Out Of Scope
