Get Executions Count (POST)

Query for the number of executions that fulfill given parameters. This method takes the same message body as the POST query and therefore it is slightly more powerful than the GET query count api.

Method

POST /execution/count

Parameters

Request Body

A JSON object with the following properties:

Name Description
businessKey Filter by the business key of the process instances the executions belong to.
processDefinitionId Filter by the process definition the executions run on.
processDefinitionKey Filter by the key of the process definition the executions run on.
processInstanceId Filter by the id of the process instance the execution belongs to.
activityId Filter by the id of the activity the execution currently executes.
signalEventSubscriptionName Select only those executions that expect a signal of the given name.
messageEventSubscriptionName Select only those executions that expect a message of the given name.
active Only include active executions. Value may only be true, as false is the default behavior.
suspended Only include suspended executions. Value may only be true, as false is the default behavior.
incidentId Filter by the incident id.
incidentType Filter by the incident type.
incidentMessage Filter by the incident message. Exact match.
incidentMessageLike Filter by the incident message that the parameter is a substring of.
tenantIdIn Filter by a list of tenant ids. An execution must have one of the given tenant ids. Must be a JSON array of Strings.
variables A JSON array to only include executions that have variables with certain values.
The array consists of objects with the three properties key, operator and value. key (String) is the variable name, operator (String) is the comparison operator to be used and value the variable value.
value may be String, Number or Boolean.
Valid operator values are: eq - equal to; neq - not equal to; gt - greater than; gteq - greater than or equal to; lt - lower than; lteq - lower than or equal to; like.
key and value may not contain underscore characters.
processVariables A JSON array to only include executions that belong to a process instance with variables with certain values.
A valid parameter value has the form key_operator_value. key is the variable name, operator is the comparison operator to be used and value the variable value.
Note: Values are always treated as String objects on server side.

Valid operator values are: eq - equal to; neq - not equal to.
key and value may not contain underscore characters.

Result

A JSON object that contains the count as the only property.
