How to get current Task via task Listener

Hi everyone Im currently using the flowable modeler,
This scnecario:

  1. Each task should have a task listener when the task is created
  2. When the task listener invoked this listener will get the current task id and pass to a data steaming.

note: I used the “execution” as a parameter to task listener and to get the task id used the execution as a query parameter but I always get the task id from the previous task.


Hey @dcmazing,

You can use task as a parameter to the task listener. That way you will get the current DelegateTask out of which you can get the id of the current task.

Within my task listener of STEP 1 I am trying to set a variable that will be used in STEP 2 of the workflow. I need to set the variable – ${execution.setVariable(‘step1TaskID’, task.getTaskId())}
Could use help and example…Please

In a task listener, you need to use ‘task’ instead of ‘execution’.
