  • Key: BPMN2-226
  • Legacy Issue Number: 14833
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: NIST ( Mr. Conrad Bock)
  • Summary:

    Called conversations might have messages that don't have the correlation keys of the caller. Clarify whether this is allowed or not.

  • Disposition Summary:

    Called collaborations can have messages that don't have the correlation
    keys of the caller. The internal structure of messages is not specified
    in BPMN, but correlation keys applying to message flow establish
    property requirements on the contents of the message. The correlation
    keys applying to a message flow are all the keys of the containers of
    the message flow, including containers transitively through calls of
    collaborations or choreographies.
    Above Figure 8.18 (The Correlation Class Diagram) insert a new
    Correlation can be applied to message flows in Collaboration and
    Choreography, as described in Chapters XXXCollaboration and
    XXXChoreography. The keys applying to a message flow are the keys of
    containers or groupings of the message flow, such as Collaborations,
    Choreographies, and Conversation Nodes, and Choreography Activities.
    This might result in multiple correlation keys applying to the same
    message flow, perhaps due to multiple layers of containment. In
    particular, calls of Collaborations and Choreographies are special
    kinds of Conversation Nodes and Choreography Activities, respectively,
    and are considered a kind of containment for the purposes of
    correlation. The correlation keys specified in the caller apply to
    message flow in a called collaboration or choreography.
    Disposition: Resolved
