I am testing Camunda to see whether our consulting business can use it when helping our customers. I attempted to make a simple typo in the “Assignee” field in the modeler and discovered that it has seemingly grave implications. It is my first day of testing, so I might have missed something really basic.
In this case I am attempting to assign a task to a non-existing person in the Camunda Modeler: https://www.screencast.com/t/dKJswnRuXX (video)
As you can see, I do not get any error messages about this, and one of the tasks that get created get assigned to the non-existing user, while the other apparently does not get assigned to any user. In addition, these tasks are marked as “assigned to user” in the view used to investigate processes.
Please note that I investigated the catalina.log file, where error messages from the deployment of Camunda Models to the engine are placed, and there is also no note there of this error.
