InsCorp is launching a roadside assistance service as a coverage option for automobile insurance policies. During the Service Stage, the customer selects a service provider, and a Service child Case is created to collect information from the service provider. To process the Assistance Request Case and the Service Case correctly, enforce a dependency to pause and resume case processing on the Assistance Request Case when the Service Case meets the conditions that you define.

Note: The framework of this challenge uses the Constellation architecture of Pega Platform™. To practice this challenge on the Traditional UI architecture, see the Pausing and resuming case processing 8.8 challenge.
