reduce number retries for an automated activity on a fault-message


Hi everyone,

is it possible to reduce the number of retries if an automated activity gets a fault response? With correcting my logical destinations it was possible for me to achieve communication to a webservice outside the netweaver.

Now I tried the same with a selfmade deployed process and it "worked" - too good. When the automated activity tries to call the webservice, which is a synchromous bpm-process I created, it recieves a fault message. This fault.message is a "the process has been triggered" message that starts my next process. Now that the automated activity gets the "error" I wanted it retries 3 times to get a working connection with the service - so I get 3 new process instances. Is it possible to reduce the retry-counter and if yes, where can I do that? I already looked for this option in the service registry and in the logical destination settings. There isn't an option in the NWDS for the automated activity and i haven't found something in the,

And yes I know that this isn't usefull for an operativ system.

With kind regards,
