    JBPM 5.4: Delaying a Human Task until a given Date (Best Practice?)

    Florian Stendel Newbie

      Hi there,


      i currently working my way into jbpm for a new project in our company.

      In this new project we got several processes containing human tasks.

      Each of this task may be processed immediately by a service agent or may - depending on external requests- be delayed until a given date in future.

      Delaying means, that the given task should not show up in the agents tasks list until the specified date is reached.


      Now i have to implement this behaviour of delaying tasks.


      Are there any build-in functionalities or best practices for incorporating this type of behaviour into jbpm?


      If not, what would be the best way to do so?

      One of my thoughts was to use something like a subprocess but i cannot accustom myself to the idea of leaving the scope "human task".
