Classic Integrations Activities
Last updated Jul 17, 2024

Get Task


The Get Task activity uses the Oracle Integration Retrieve a Task API to retrieve a specific task (Task Id).

After completing the get operation, the activity outputs the task details in a DataTable object (Task Details) along with 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 Get Task activity inside the Oracle Process Scope activity.
  5. Enter a value for the Input property.
  6. Create and enter a DataTable variable and String variables for the Output properties.
  7. Run the activity.

    • Your input properties are sent to the Retrieve a Task API.
    • The API returns the DataTable and 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 retrieve. Enter a Int32 or Int32 variable. To get the Task Id value, add an activity or run an external process that outputs the process identifier (e.g., Get Tasks).
  • 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.
  • Task Details - The details of the specified task. Enter a DataTable variable.


The following image shows an example of the activity dependency relationship and input/output property values.
