maxRetriesin relation to that specific task which fails or the process in general?
There is a subtle but important difference between maxRetries and the maxErrors directive. The latter defines the total number of errors that are allowed during the process execution (the same process can launch different execution instances), while the maxRetries defines the maximum number of times the same process execution can be retried in case of an error.
maxRetriesdefines how many times the same task can be retried
for every input sequence, do x. Using this example, I understand that
maxRetriesrefers to the number errors per sequence (task), where
maxErrorrefers to the total number of errors in all the executions of the the process.
