I have a process with long-running external backend tasks. My users want to see some feedback in the task list wich tells them about the progress in the backend. I can post progress information from the backend to the Camunda rest service and add that information to process variables.
What I am considering is a user task with an embedded form which gets assigned to the current user after the backend call,
hoping that I can poll the Camunda backend from the browser to get the current process variables.
- Has anyone done a similar thing in the past?
