Link Event

The Link Events provide an unconditional transfer of control within a single process. This is exactly the same behavior as a Sequence Flow.


In 1968, Edsger Dijkstra wrote a famous letter titled “GOTO Considered Harmful”. The Link Event is BPMN’s GOTO statement. It was not best practice in 1968 and it still is not.

Always use explicit Sequence Flows to model process execution paths.
