Dynamic Boundary Events

Question asked by ncoonghe on Feb 29, 2016

Currently, from what I have understood from the users guide, boundary events are not dynamic. The need to be configured as part of the process and deployed. Is there a way to disable the boundary event that is defined on a task programmatically and enable it again when required.

The use case is, since the event needs to be configured prior, and say it is a timer based boundary event, the event gets fired when the timeline is reached. I want the event not to be fired, unless it is enabled. I can let it fire and do nothing, but then the process instance diagram would show the activity(event) to have executed giving the impression that the event has fired. I want to dynamically enable and disable the event when required based on some custom configuration define din my application. Is this possible and if so how ?

Any help and ideas is appreciated.
