Incorrect documentation on failed jobs

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      See the following section in the documentation:
      https://docs.camunda.org/manual/7.5/user-guide/process-engine/the-job-executor/#failed-jobs

      The section incorrectly states the following:

      [...] It is not immediately retried and added back to the acquisition queue, but the value of the RETRIES_ column is decreased. The process engine thus performs bookkeeping for failed jobs. After updating the RETRIES_ column, the executor moves on to the next job. This means that the failed job will automatically be retried once the LOCK_EXP_TIME_ date is expired.

      The actual behavior is that the after the job failed, the default behavior is:

      • decrement retries
      • unlock (set lock time & lockowner to null)
