Learn about the task lifecycle in the Oracle APEX approval component.
Tasks have their own lifecycle in the Oracle APEX approval component. A state is the current location of the task in the task lifecycle, while a transition refers to the movement of a task between different states. Transitions can occur as part of the normal task lifecycle, or they can occur due to an exception or a user interruption.
- an underlying database error
- a code bug
- an invalid Task Definition
- an error during execution of the action specified for the Task Definition
A canceled state occurs when the initiator of the task explicitly cancels the task.
Task states and possible transitions are available in the following diagram, or in the Table 19-1 table.
