I have two flows, the first one is waiting for a “stop” from the second. When I send the signal now, it works, however, I can potentially have multiple instances of the first flow. I only want to send the stop signal from the second to a particular instance of the first flow. So far I have not had any luck doing this in the modeler. I have set the executionId to the process ID of the first flow, but it stops all the running instances of the first flow. What do I need to do in order for the stop signal to be sent only to a single instance of the first flow? I see in the documentation that this can be achieved by setting the executionId but I can’t find an example of how to do that in the modeler.
Can you upload your model(s) and show what code you’re using to send the signal.
Also - if you use a message event instead of a signal it will only ever trigger one instance.
@iscariot_TF by adding the execution id to the query will signal the specific process instance.
runtimeService .createSignalEvent("signalName") .executionId(executionId) .setVariables(variables) .send();
Where do I put that code aravindhrs?
I was under the impression that you could send a signal to a specific instance of a flow by specifying the executionId. Maybe I’m not using the right thing. I got that from here: https://docs.camunda.org/manual/7.12/reference/bpmn20/events/signal-events/
