Classic Integrations Activities
Last updated Jul 17, 2024

Action Task


The Action Task activity uses the Oracle Integration Perform Action on a Task API to perform a selected action (Action) to update a specific task (Task Id).

After completing the put operation, the activity outputs the API call status (Status) and response message (Response Message).

How it works

The following steps and message sequence diagram is an example of how the activity works from design time (i.e., the activity dependencies and input/output properties) to run time.

  1. Complete the Setup steps.
  2. Add the Oracle Process Scope activity to your project.
  3. Add an activity or run an external process that outputs the task identifier (e.g., Get Tasks).
  4. Add the Action Task activity inside the Oracle Process Scope activity.
  5. Enter values for the Input properties.
  6. Create and enter String variables for the Output properties.
  7. Run the activity.

    • Your input properties are sent to the Perform Action on a Task API.
    • The API returns the String values to your output property variables.


  • DisplayName - The display name of the activity. This field supports only Strings or String variables.
  • Task Id - The identifier assigned to the task that you want to update. Enter a String or String variable. To get the Task Id value, add an activity or run an external process that outputs the task identifier (e.g., Get Tasks).
  • Action - The action that you want to take to update the specified task. Enter a String or String variable.
    • Enter your value according to your defined Oracle approval pattern. For example, to approve a task, enter "APPROVE" or to submit a task, enter "SUBMIT".
    • For more information about approval patterns and potential values, see Define an Approval Pattern in the Oracle documentation.
  • Comment - The comment that you want to associate with the task update. Enter a String or String variable.
  • Private - If selected, the values of variables and arguments are no longer logged at Verbose level.
  • Response Message - The API response message. Enter a String variable
  • Status - The status of the request. Enter a String variable. Possible values are Success or Failure.
