Zeebe carries custom data from task to task in form of variables. Variables are key-value-pairs and part of the workflow instance.
By default, all job variables are merged into the workflow instance. This behavior can be customized by defining an output mapping at the task. Input mappings can be used to transform the variables into a format that is accepted by the job worker.
name: order-process tasks: - id: collect-money type: payment-service inputs: - source: totalPrice target: price outputs: - source: success target: paymentSuccess - id: fetch-items type: inventory-service - id: ship-parcel type: shipment-service
Every mapping element has a
source and a
target element which must be a variable expression.
