BPMN stands for Business Process Model and Notation. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BPMN) And in BPMN, there are Parallel Gateways that indicates that after the finish of one job, multiple jobs are triggered at the same time, and when those multiple jobs are ALL finished, some roll-up job is then executed. Is there a similiar construct in JIRA workflows or is JIRA workflows executing all tasks in a linear manner only?
To what extent does JIRA workflow implement features in BPMN? Thanks.
You can use subtasks to simulate a parallel gateway.
I don't think that you can automate the creation of the subtasks and the progress of the parent issue if all subtasks are done on an ondemand instance because this has to be scripted (or developed as a plugin).
I don't know about a explicit mapping of BPMN artifacts to JIRA. You can simulate a lot of workflows in JIRA because the JIRA workflow is flexible through conditions, validators and post functions but there is no general mapping for BPMN.
