Create process instance with rest


I want to know how i can create a process instance through the rest api.

I am using “flowable-rest/service/runtime/process-instances/” and passing the process definition key.

The instance is creating but without the initiator (logged in user) so the new process instance does not appear on the user task/inbox.

Thnks in advanced,


The initiator should be added as a ‘starter’ to the process instance execution, it uses the user that was used to do the REST call. You can verify this in the database by checking the identity links associated with the process instance execution. Can you check what you’ve got there?
