Parallel Multi Instance Dynamic Task Candidate Group Assignment

Jump to solution

I'm trying to make a parallel multi-instance task that is assigned to a dynamic amount of candidate groups. I have the candidate groups' apsIds in a Collection, but I want each multi-instance task assigned to only one group of the list (so each group has to finish the task once). How do I set up the assignment of the task?

Hi Dave,

  1. Select Multi-Instance type to Parallel.
  2. Set Collection to the name variable that holds the list of groups to be assigned.
  3. Set Element variable (e.g. group_to_be_assigned), this varible holds the current item in the list
  4. Use your Element variable in Task Assignment using el. click on task Assignment > goto fixed values > in Candidate groups > add ${group_to_be_assigned} 

Hope it helps.

Regards,
Abbas

Thanks for your reply, I worked around it with a task listener but your solution is way better and cleaner. Tested it and it works like a charm!
