This definition is still confusing 

Hi All,

I am just doing a BPMN  process. One thing I am confused about is should I use an exclusive or inclusive Gateway for the following scenario.

 

If the form arrives with signature then go to step A

If the form arrives without signature then go to step B

At first I thought it is an exclusive gateway, but the definition for an inclusive gateway sound little bit confusing to me, especially with the lack of examples. The example I was able to see about inclusive gateway say it is used when you have 2 or more options and you can choose them both, for example Either A or A+B, so does this apply to the above scenario?

Many thanks

Adam

Re: This definition is still confusing 

The gateway is exclusive as there are essentially two states, either with a signature or without. The form cannot have both a signature and not a signature. 

From https://www.lucidchart.com/pages/bpmn-gateway-types

"An exclusive gateway evaluates the state of the business process and, based on the condition, breaks the flow into one of the two or more mutually exclusive paths."
