Ability to Add Identity-Links on User Tasks through Modeler and engine


#1

Looking at ways to add ID Links with Modeler. Was thinking this would be a good feature to add to modeler / the engine?


#2

On a related note, is there a way to have Get Tasks (list) return the identity Links with hal+json. Currently seems to only work with /task/:id


#3

Can you provide an example use case?

I think this is currently not possible.


#4

when a user task is generated, there are the ID links that get created for things like candidate, assignee, etc.
But in more complex environments where there are third-party systems interacting with the REST API, the external systems often want to know more information about the user. Identity Links that provide more context about the related Identities of a user task. Could be the Departmental Owner (different than a “Task Owner”), the Backup Assignee, Quality Assurance Owner, etc. These are Groups and Assignees that could be used by the outside systems to enable permissions, feature toggling, etc.


#5

Makes sense. Feel free to raise a feature request in JIRA.
