Error Message :

Waiting Workflows in a status of WAITING_MAX_PARALLEL are not triggered to run if a parallel Workflow ends after a timeout of an external dependency.  Even if there are no active parallel tasks, the Workflow remains in a status of WAITING_MAX_PARALLEL.

When Workflows with an external dependency and max parallel =1 are started simultaneously, the dependency is not evaluated correctly and both Workflows remain in a Waiting for end of parallel tasks status.


Cause type:
Root Cause: Waiting Workflows in a status of WAITING _MAX_PARALLEL are not triggered if a parallel Workflow ends after a timeout of an external dependency. Even after no parallel task active the Workflow remains in WAITING_MAX_PARALLEL.
