SignallingTaskHandlerDecorator not working for retry signal when using remote client

Solution In Progress - Updated -


We use kie-server and all the client application is using the remote client via REST API.

For Exception Handling we want to use SignallingTaskHandlerDecorator, configured in the kie-deployment-descriptor.xml configuration:

      <identifier>new org.jbpm.bpmn2.handler.SignallingTaskHandlerDecorator(com.test.TaskWIH.class, "Error-Task-errorCode")</identifier>

This is a custom task and with this configuration, the WIH gets called, and when it throws an Excpetion, the error signal is caught. But now the issue I have is, on retry the signal is not caught.

I need to set the exceptionCountLimit parameter of the SignallingTaskHandlerDecorator.

I know how to do it programmatically, but as this is a remote client. How do I set the jbpm SignallingTaskHandlerDecorator exceptionCountLimit in the deployment descriptor or within the workflow scripts at run time?
