Troubleshooting issues with the BPMN simulation feature

In order for a simulation to be executed, some necessary conditions must be fulfilled:

  • The syntax of the diagram has to stick to BPMN 2.0 syntax rules. The process flow must not be interrupted, for example:

The diagram must not infringe BPMN 2.0 syntax rules

  • To check if a diagram sticks to BPMN 2.0 syntax rules, you can also use the syntax check in the graphical Editor.

  • Elements that affect the process flow, but cannot be clearly specified regarding their impact on the process flow, must not be used.

    Such elements are - for example - inclusive gateways and non-interrupting boundary events.
