Is there a standard or recommended way to disable the execution of a particular External Task? We have a variety of external tasks which are used to call other microservices. As happens, occasionally one of those services will be having an operational issue, and we want to let tasks “back up” rather than executing calls to their service which we know will fail. I’ve looked around and seen mentions of using Timer Boundary Events for this purpose, but none I’ve found have explained how that approach would actually work. I’m admittedly not an expert on them, but I don’t understand how they could fill that purpose.
What I’m looking for is essentially a switch which would prevent certain external tasks from running in any process instances, even ones that were created before flipping the switch, but would still allow the process instance to be started.
