I’ve been stepping through the documentation (https://www.flowable.org/docs/userguide/) trying to get my head around flowable, and have collated a small list of minor points I thought might be worth sharing.
Section 5.7.4, first use of “cURL”. This didn’t work for me:
curl http://localhost:8080/tasks?assignee=kermit. I was always getting an empty list of tasks back. I had to update the workflow XML (defined in section 5.7.2) and add
assignee="kermit"into the XML, i.e.:
<userTask id="theTask" name="my task" assignee="kermit" />. Not sure if that’s required or if I did something wrong. If there’s no assignee in the workflow definition, does that mean that ANY assignee would get it? (e.g. Kermit in this case.)
Section 5.7.6: The Actuator endpoints didn’t initially work for me following the instructions. I had to add a dependency on “flowable-spring-boot-starter-actuator”. Might be worth reiterating this at this point in the docs.
Just before section 7.3. it says this: “[[10minutetutorial]]”. Minor copy/paste error maybe?
Section 7.3.1’s first sentence says “This tutorial assumes that you have the Flowable demo setup running”. That hyperlink goes to https://www.flowable.org/docs/userguide/index.html#demo.setup.one.minute.version, but that anchor (demo.setup.one.minute.version) doesn’t seem to be found as the link takes you simply to the very top of the docs.
Section 9.2 has small typo: “By default, the build-in form engines, sees the properties” (should be “built-in”).
