Dynamically generate multiple timers



Is it possible to generate dynamically multiple timers with timer duedates as a list(iterating over the due date to generate timer events)

Hi @vinu_s,

please describe your use case more in detail.

In a BPMN process, you can iterate over a collection using a multi-instance sub-process. A timer event can have an expression as time definition.

Or, you could use the Camunda BPMN Model API to generate the models with the timers.

Best regards,



Is it possible to implement this multi instance timer logic inside bpmn parse listener plugin(custom plugin).

If no, how can we achieve the same.

No, I think it is not possible to modify the model in this way using a parse listener.

As I said, you can model the multi-instance behavior in the BPMN process. Or, creating the BPMN process dynamically using the model API.

Can you tell more about your process / use case?
