Timer events are events which are triggered by a defined timer.
Timer Intermediate Catch Events
A timer intermediate event acts as a stopwatch. When a token arrives at the timer intermediate catch event then a timer is started. The timer fires after the specified duration is over and the event is left.
The duration must be defined in the ISO 8601 format. For example:
PT15S- 15 seconds
PT1H30M- 1 hour and 30 minutes
P14D- 14 days
