Duplicate workitem created when throwing exception in On Entry / Exit Script

Solution Verified - Updated -


The 'Catching Intermediate Events - Error' is applied to the User task which is simulated to throw an error upon exit
e.g. On Exit Action = throw new RuntimeException("Test");

However there is an unexpected behaviour where the failed work item (e.g. User1) is still proceed to next task (e.g. User2). At the same time a new work item created due to simulated exception thrown. As a result, there are 2 user tasks created (at User2).

Expected behaviour: There should be only one task at User2 stage (due to exception thrown upon User1's exit).
