Exception branch to error the BPM process after timeout


I have a BPM scenario which has correlation setup for an async interface for request response. Now my question is can i setup the Exception handling in BPM to error the message and also throw an alert once the correlation times out? If so, how? Currently i am trying out with a deadline branch where i have setup the timeout time eg 1 min. and am putting an exception control block within that and using a separate exception branch to handle it. But i see that the exception is not even being raised and so the BPM is failing gracefully with checkered flag. Please suggest.

    You can start to verify your process by comparing it to one of the patterns in SAP BASIS software component in ESR, namespace, there  is a process called BpmPatternCollectTime. They also use deadline branch.

    two parallel branches (fork with one success branch), one with a wait step and behind that a  jump (control step) into exception branch should work.

    • Hi,

      Can you please elaborate a bit

      A Block defining an exception, having an exception branch for that

      Inside the block a fork, 1 neccessary branch (of 2 total)

      1. Branch: Your normal processing. Waiting for correlation

      2. Branch: First a wait step. Second a control step, jumping into exception branch
