Start Event - Multiple

A process may need to be started when any one of many conditions evaluate to true. In such a scenario, multiple triggers can be added to a Start Event. The triggers that can be added to a Start event are Receive Message, and Timer. When more than one trigger is added to a start event, the icon representing the start event on the designer canvas changes in the following manner.

Adding multiple triggers to a start event can be useful when multiple messages are targeted at a process model and the reception of any of these messages require a process to be started.

The triggers configured within a start event are automatically activated when the process model is published. When all conditions imposed by any of the triggers evaluate to true, a new process is started.
