Hi all

Is there any ways to set case status to DONE? and should we do that manually?

There is no API to set the case status to DONE. A case is DONE when all tasks of the actual case are done. You have the opportunity to DESTROY ICase#destroy() a case manually. Can you explain your use case?

Hi @Alex Suter ♦♦

My case is:

  • I working on task A1 belongs to case A

  • task A1 have a button, and when I click on that button, case B and case C must be set to DONE (their tasks also)

Hi @trungdv

The logic is as follows: In the special case if task A1 is done, tasks of Task B1 and Task C1 must not be done anymore. From an user point of view I would like to see, that Task B1 and Task C1 are not really done - because nobody really did the work. They are destroyed. You also can destroy on task level ITask#destroy.

But you have to ask you the following question: Is it a good solution to have parallel tasks, when some of them not have to be done, when another task is done? The user may do some unnecessary work.

hi @Alex Suter ♦♦

I totally agree with you that we should set state to DESTROY, it's better than DONE in this situation. And anyway we can't set case status to DONE, right?

I think another way is we can take advantage of boundary signal to clean up the Case.

Hi @trungdv

No, you can't set status to DONE via API. Boundary signal would be a really nice solution for that.

A Signal Boundary Event destroys an open task of an user if a signal code is received that matches the inscribed pattern.
