Greetings. We have the need to attach descriptive information to a process instance that is always available for the life of the process instance. My first thought is to add a comment to the root token immediately after creating the process instance.
Is the root token guaranteed to exist for the life of the instance? Or is it possible to kill the root token and continue the process instance with only child tokens?
Everything is possible, but not under normal circumstances. You safely can assume the root token will always be there.
