I need to configure camunda to json serialise my dates to strings formatted “yyyy-MM-dd” but I am not sure where to start. Presently the date is captured and stored as a string from the embedded form, but then later on in the workflow it is converted to a number.
I have read:
- Extending Spin | docs.camunda.org
- Data mapping and transformation with Camunda Spin and Java 8 - Camunda
- How to use custom data formats with Spin plugin?
But it is not making a lot of sense to me. I see that you need to create a custom data formatter and register it, but there are only fragments of information and I am not sure of the steps involved or where to place the prices of code.
Is there a simpler way to do this or some step be step guidance?
