Setting Business Process Assignee in API

I have a curl command which starts a business process instance and have set the processDefinitionKey in my JSON. Is it also possible to set the Assignee to a User or Group as part of the JSON? If not, can I set a default assignee in the Flowable-Modeler?

Thank you.


It is possible to assign a user or group inside the Flowable Modeler, but to a task inside a process. You cannot really assign the a user or group to the process itself (as far as I know).

In my example, the process initiator is a candidate assignee of the tasks inside the process, which they can then claim. You can change this accordingly to have direct assignments in “Assignee” field, eliminating the need to claim the tasks.

Thank you very much for the information.
