How to use embedded task forms?

Hello, I’m wondering if it’s possible to use embedded task forms (HTML and JavaScript) like in Camunda Platform 7 (as documented here)?

It doesn’t seem like it’s possible to attach/upload custom HTML forms to a workflow when deploying from either the Desktop Modeler or Web Modeler.

For my use case, I want to dynamically populate the select/dropdown options in my form using a process variable, whose value is obtained from a job.

I achieved this in Camunda 7 by following this documentation:

Is there a way to do something like this in Camunda 8?

Hi @kevindang88 ,

I do not believe that this is possible in Camunda Platform 8 at this time. Though, if you figure out how to do it, please do let me know as It’s something I’d love to be able to do too!

Best Regards,

Hey @kevindang88

did you already checked out Camunda 8 Forms Feature? Building forms with Modeler | Camunda Platform 8 Would this work for you? What do you miss ? We are happy for any feedback you can provide :slight_smile:


How can you even define forms in Camunda Platform 8 besides those form elements available?
There is no guidance at all in the docs.

@frankenbrunnen we use Angular components generated in Apex Designer to build user task pages. You can see the design and run experience in a set of videos in my blog post from last week. I would be happy to answer any questions you have about how we interact with Camunda 8 from Angular.
