BPMN2 — Incorrect attribute name used for Start Event definition

  • Key: BPMN2-267
  • Legacy Issue Number: 15085
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: BPM Advantage Consulting ( Dr. Stephen White)
  • Summary:

    Bullet items for Start Event Message Flow Connections refers to the "Trigger" attribute of the Start Event. The name of this attribute was changed to "eventDefinitionRefs."
    These items, and other similar uses of the word Trigger, should be corrected.

  • Disposition Summary:

    The statements of those bullets is actually wrong, the trigger attribute do not have a value of "Message" or "Multiple", they are EventDefinition elements. Also they do
    not add any value since the connection rules are properly described in Section 7.5.2 Mesage Flow Connection Rules
    So the proposed fix is to remove these 2 bullets:
    • The Trigger attribute of the Start Event MUST be set to Message or Multiple if there are any incoming Message Flow.
    • The Trigger attribute of the Start Event MUST be set to Multiple if there are more than one incoming Message Flow.
    Disposition: Resolved
