Multiinstance subprocess erroring on boundary condition

Question asked by ad1 on May 16, 2016

I have  the following configuration to kick off multi-instance sub process.

1.Collection = ${execution.getVariable("PAYLOAD")} – this the Payload  variable  at the parent process level.
2. Completion condition = ${nrOfCompletedInstances/nrOfInstances > 0.95}


The Subprocess gets called the number of times as per the collection list, but on the boundary condition it errors out!
For eg: I have 3 items in the collection. The subprocess gets called for 3 times. On the 4th iteration it throws the following error. It should not even be going to the 4th iteration?
