The Usage of BPMN Gateways
Gateways is a BPMN notation used to control how a process flows. Connected by sequence flows, a gateway acts as a decision point that decides which (outgoing) sequence flow to take based on the result of the evaluation of condition(s) specified. According to the Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN)’s definition, only sequence flow will affect the flow of activities while message flow does not.
