  • Deadlines act as a timer which triggers an exception transition to another activity when a specified duration has elapsed. Deadlines can be set for each activity.
  • We set time limits on each activity, which will trigger an exception (in this case, a specific string variable). When a matching transition that has the condition set to 'exception' matches this string value, the transition will be invoked.

Types of Deadlines

  • Deadline execution can be synchronous or asynchronous.
  • For synchronous execution, the current activity will no longer be active when the deadline is triggered.  This is used in cases such as an approval escalation.
  • For asynchronous execution, the next activity will be executed while the current activity is still waiting.  This is used in cases such as sending reminders.
  • Multiple deadlines are supported for each activity.
