getBusinessKey() on DelegateExecution returns null

Since Activiti 5.6, it's possible to retrieve business key from DelegateExecution in JavaDelegate task, which is great! It works in most cases. However, I came across a case where delegateExecution.getBusinessKey() returns null.

I have the following definition:

<parallelGateway id="fork" />
<sequenceFlow id="flow140" sourceRef="fork" targetRef="meetingUserTask" />
<sequenceFlow id="flow150" sourceRef="fork" targetRef="meetingDelegateTask" />

meetingUserTask refers to a user task and meetingDelegateTask refers to a JavaDelegate task.

When I try to retrieve the business key from meetingDelegateTask, I get null back.

It seems like a bug, but maybe there is a work around for it.

Your help is greatly appreciated.
