Show Table data in editable format for a User Task

Hi, Folks

Would appreciate your expertise in the below-mentioned.

I have successfully fetched the data from my db using the service task(Implementation-Java Class) and stored the data in 2 process variables

-COL_NAMES (storing the column names in ArrayList object)
-EMP_DATA(for storing the table data in List object)

and then set the process variable as well, pointing to the above 2 vars.

Now I want to show this data using the Embedded Task Form attached to my User Task
But I dont know how to use these camunda process variables in my HTML JS code and create/display table headers from the COL_NAMES variable, and display rows using the EMP_DATA variable,
along with a submit button that will complete the user task and save the data edits made by the user.

Have already create an HTML JS structure to show dummy hard-coded data with inline editing, but I want to populate this data from the process vars.

Please help me with the same as I have already tried a lot of unsuccessful attempts


Hi @ashishramtri,

in the Camunda Tasklist you can use cam-variable-name and cam-variable-type to reference your variable in every input element.

In your own HTML code you can integrate the form-sdk like documented here: Integrating the Forms SDK |

Hope this helps, Ingo

Hi @Ingo_Richtsmeier

Thanks for the help on the above-mentioned. The hints were indeed helpful and I was able to unblock myself on the same.

Also, if I use the below-mentioned piece of code inside my xyz.html for the embedded task forms, it ALWAYS throws this controller error:

Form failure: [$controller:ctrlreg] The controller with the name ‘personCtrl’ is not registered. AngularJS

Could you please provide any solution around the same?
Anything that I might be doing wrong or needs a change.


  <!DOCTYPE html>
  <script src=""></script>

  <div ng-app="myApp" ng-controller="personCtrl">

    First Name: <input type="text" ng-model="firstName"><br>
    Last Name: <input type="text" ng-model="lastName"><br>
    Full Name: {{fullName()}}


  <script type="text/javascript">
var app = angular.module('myApp', []);
app.controller('personCtrl', function($scope) {
    $scope.firstName = "John";
    $scope.lastName = "Doe";
    $scope.fullName = function() {
        return $scope.firstName + " " + $scope.lastName;



Hi @ashishramtri,

I’m sorry. I have to admit that my JavaScript knowledge is limited to the facts that are written in the docs.

Cheers, Ingo

That’s completely okay, @Ingo_Richtsmeier !
I’ll try to figure it out somehow, and shall post the answer as soon as I find a solution to the same.
