External tasks history

Is there a way to fetch the timestamp when an external task was fetched and locked? The External Task Logs API (https://docs.camunda.org/manual/7.7/reference/rest/history/external-task-log/get-external-task-log-query/) only tells the creation, success, fail and deletion timestamps for a certain task.

Is there a way to find more information about when a task was fetched? Is there a way to find out things like when priority, retries or retry timeout changed?

Hi @vprenner,

currently, the fetch time of an external task is not recorded in the history.
If a user changes the retries of an external task then it’s recorded in the history user operation log.

You can create a feature request if you need this functionality?

Best regards,

I’m looking for this capability as well. I opened a feature request: CAM-13947.
