A workflow can contain multiple tasks, where each represents a step in the workflow.
Each task has the following properties:
id(required): the unique identifier of the task.
type(required): the name to which job workers can subscribe.
retries: the amount of times the job is retried in case of failure. (default = 3)
headers: a list of metadata in the form of key-value pairs that can be accessed by a worker.
When Zeebe executes a task, it creates a job that is handed to a job worker. The worker can perform the business logic and complete the job eventually to trigger continuation in the workflow.
