Issue/Introduction

Error Message :
EXIT used in Scripts in a Workflow cancels other Tasks

If you use :EXIT in a Script or any Process tab of a Job, the execution of said statement makes other Tasks fail with FAULT_OTHER and cancels practically the whole Workflow.
This is due to the Scripts of all Tasks not having generate at runtime are executed together, the first exit will cancel all other executions.
This is by design.
