What is the limit of taskid number for the activiti engine ?
is it always increasing or it will end at specific length and restart . I see its datatype as varchar(64) in the task table id_ column.
The default id generator is Activiti/DbIdGenerator.java at 6.x · Activiti/Activiti · GitHub which uses id blocks until they are consumed. I guess it will reuse the old blocks when see Activiti/GetNextIdBlockCmd.java at 6.x · Activiti/Activiti · GitHub
If you are concerned about the length of the id maybe you should consider using StrongUuidGenerator see Activiti User Guide
Bassam Al-Sarori Thanks for the Response.
We are using Activiti Open Source 5.22 version.
In our case every time a task is created we are using it to link to the record in our application Database. So is there any chance that there might be repeatation of task id which is completed earlier.
For Example :
If you consider our applications records as R1 , R2 , R3.
R1 -- Task1, task2, Task4, Task6
is there any chance that task1 completed in R1 can be repeated in future for Rn record?
I assume by repeated you mean re-opened. No, a completed task can't be re-opened instead a new task can be created.
By repeated I mean , will the task id Number repeats ? Or is it always unique for the engine.
the reason we are asking is in our system we are having some data stored in tables with primary key as task id. This data will be there even if the task is completed.
If the task id Number repeats for some other task in future there will be conflict.
hope my question is clear this time .
thanks for the response.
No the task id shouldn't repeat (unless you have very large number of tasks greater than Long.MAX_VALUE).
