I want to suspend a Task when an user clicks on the cancel button on a jsf dialog.

I found an hint with the ivy.task.reset(). But when use this function, i cannot finishing the process step due to an error (IllegalStateException: State of Task must be one of the following values...)

What would be the best way to suspend a task and resume it later on?

Thanks for help in advance.

Regards, Daniel

The easiest way to do it is to have a data object 'Status' which is set to "cancel" when entering the Dialog, if there is no change one then routes the process back to a 'dummy' action/step before the Task Switch, which can be taken up again by the User. For all other Button actions one sets a different status which then determines the path taken.

Thank you for your answer. But would that lead to a new task? Or did I understand you wrong?

You get a new Task (new Task ID) but the Data will remain the same. It is difficult to describe in words a picture would be easier. You are essentially making a loop if the status is 'cancel'

Skript Step (Dummy)-> Task Step -> Dialog -> Alternative (Path 1 == cancel || Path 2...n == 'something else')

Path 1 -> back to Skript Step (Dummy)

The 'old Task' is "DONE" or "COMPLETED" (I'm not sure what the actual status nomenclature is.
