How to start a process-instance at any task stage?

Hello ,

I have a process-definition to “apply for loan” , which has 4 different stages :slight_smile:

  1. requested
  2. applied
  3. in-process
  4. rework
  5. approved/rejected .

I want to migrate my currently running application data to camunda .
So , my question is : Is there any way to start the "loan request " at any stage . ?

Can I start the process-instance at any stage ? Eg : Is there any REST-API to start the task at stage No. #3 .

You can start a process form any symbol using the REST API. the docs has this example available which you may find useful

@Niall ,
Can we use message based events ?

You can indeed there is a page of all supported symbols here:
