Remove Dependency

In some situations, you may have a parent job and need to remove the relationship when one of its children fail.
The pattern to solve this requirement consists on using the removeDependencyOnFailure option. This option will make sure that when a job fails, the dependency is removed from the parent, so the parent will complete without waiting for the failed children.
const flow = new FlowProducer({ connection });
const originalTree = await flow.add({
name: 'root-job',
queueName: 'topQueueName',
data: {},
children: [
{
name,
data: { idx: 0, foo: 'bar' },
queueName: 'childrenQueueName',
opts: { removeDependencyOnFailure: true },
children: [
{
name,
data: { idx: 1, foo: 'bah' },
queueName: 'grandChildrenQueueName',
},
{
name,
data: { idx: 2, foo: 'baz' },
queueName: 'grandChildrenQueueName',
},
],
},
{
name,
data: { idx: 3, foo: 'foo' },
queueName: 'childrenQueueName',
},
],
});
As soon as a child with this option fails, the parent job will be moved to a waiting state only if there are no more pending children.
