    required fields for transitions?

    Olaf Maass Newbie


      I'm exploring jBPM and I have a conceptual question. I know that tasks can have required fields. But as far as I know, there is no way to define required fields for transitions. Wouldn't that be sometimes more important than for the task?

      Example: you have a workflow where a designer uploads an image that is to be approved by the art director. The art director gets a task "check image" in node "waiting for approval". Node "waiting for approval" has two transitions: "approve" and "reject". Now the transition "reject" would need a required variable "rejection reason" whereas "approve" would not.

      How could you implement this scenario in jBPM? Is there another way I don't see?

      Thanks for help!
