Create comment and attachment at the start process


#1

I am using a custom web app to communicate with the camunda engine.

I want to create attachments using https://docs.camunda.org/manual/7.8/reference/rest/task/attachment/

And create comments using https://docs.camunda.org/manual/7.8/reference/rest/task/comment/

I have a data capture form at the start of the process. However there is no task id during a start process. How do I work around this and what other options can i explore

Hi @ebenezergraham,

I see two options:

  1. You use process variables to store this data (or references to it)
  2. You use an external system for management of attachments and comments

If you need richer functionality around content management, I recommend going for option two.

Cheers,
Thorben
