How to short-circuit the process if one verdict in parallel tasks is rejected in a Vault workflow?
Workflows sometimes include parallel tasks, meaning that more than one task is assigned simultaneously for the workflow and multiple tasks are open at the same time. There is one short-circuit option that allows an Admin to identify verdicts that short-circuit the review and approval process by canceling open parallel tasks.
To configure short-circuiting requires an Admin to modify on a Join step:
- From the Step Details page for the Join step, click Edit and select the Allow Short-Circuit checkbox.
- All valid Workflow Task steps appear in the Parallel Tasks list. To be valid, a step must have the Allow cancel task option enabled, have verdicts, and have the Join step selected as its next step.
- For each task, select one or more verdicts that cause Vault to cancel outstanding parallel tasks. If needed, choose to not select any verdicts for some Workflow Task steps.
- Click Save.
