Using Process Cloud Service REST API Part 1 by John Featherly

image

The Process Cloud Service (PCS) REST API provides an avenue to build UI components for workflow applications based on PCS. The versatility that comes with REST enables modern web application frameworks and just as easily, mobile applications. The API documentation is available here. Notice the endpoints are organized into eight categories. We’ll be focusing on the process and task categories.

Exploring the API

The API documentation contains samples using cURL which is useful for ad hoc command line calls. More comprehensive and easier to use tools like Postman and SoapUI are recommended. The PCS REST API WADL (Web Application Description Language) is available and can be imported into a Postman collection or SoapUI project. Most modern browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Internet Explorer and Edge have developer tools that can be useful when debugging web applications with REST calls.

A Simple PCS Application

In order to explore the API we will need a simple PCS application with a basic workflow and task form. We’ll build a workflow with a message start which means it will have a SOAP Web Service binding. We’ll create a string parameter on the binding and pass that incoming string to a submit task, then to an approve task and end the flow.

PCS Composer

Login to PCS and select Develop Processes from the row of buttons on the welcome page. Read the complete article here.
