Modify Workflow at runtime -> New Task with dependency Status ANY_OK does not start if parent task has ended with Status ENDED_OK


Article ID: 87844

CA Automic Workload Automation - Automation Engine


Error Message :

When modifying a Workflow at runtime and adding a new task with the dependency status ANY_OK, if the previous task has already finished with ENDED_OK, the added task will never start.


Cause type:
Root Cause: Adding a dependency did not work with MODIFY_TASK, if the source task of the dependency has already ended. ADD_DEPENDENCY added an additional predecessor even the task has already ended and after committing the changes, the task would wait forever.
