    In this example, the external dependency is set to only run on the 4th of July.

    1. Always set the expected status to ANY_OK in the 'External dependency' tab rather than in the task's dependencies tab.

    Note: ANY_OK covers the following statuses = Ended inactive, Ended skip because of calendar, Ended OK
