Get User Operation Log (Historic)

Query for user operation log entries that fulfill the given parameters. The size of the result set can be retrieved by using the count method.

Note that the properties of operation log entries are interpreted as restrictions on the entities they apply to. That means, if a single process instance is updated, the field processInstanceId is populated. If a single operation updates all process instances of the same process definition, the field processInstanceId is null (a null restriction is viewed as a wildcard, i.e. matches a process instance with any id) and the field processDefinitionId is populated. This way, it can easily be reconstructed which entities were changed by a user operation.

Method

GET /history/user-operation

Parameters

Query Parameters

Name Description
deploymentId Filter by deployment id.
processDefinitionId Filter by process definition id.
processDefinitionKey Filter by process definition key.
processInstanceId Filter by process instance id.
executionId Filter by execution id.
caseDefinitionId Filter by case definition id.
caseInstanceId Filter by case instance id.
caseExecutionId Filter by case execution id.
taskId Only include operations on this task.
jobId Filter by job id.
jobDefinitionId Filter by job definition id.
userId Only include operations of this user.
operationId Filter by the id of the operation. This allows fetching of multiple entries which are part of a composite operation.
operationType Filter by the type of the operation like Claim or Delegate.
entityType Filter by the type of the entity that was affected by this operation, possible values are Task, Attachment or IdentityLink.
property Only include operations that changed this property, e.g. owner or assignee
afterTimestamp Restrict to entries that were created after the given timestamp. The timestamp must have the format yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss, e.g. 2014-02-25T14:58:37
beforeTimestamp Restrict to entries that were created before the given timestamp. The timestamp must have the format yyyy-MM-dd'T'HH:mm:ss, e.g. 2014-02-25T14:58:37
sortBy Sort the results by a given criterion. At the moment the query only supports sorting based on the timestamp.
sortOrder Sort the results in a given order. Values may be asc for ascending order or desc for descending order. Must be used in conjunction with the sortBy parameter.
firstResult Pagination of results. Specifies the index of the first result to return.
maxResults Pagination of results. Specifies the maximum number of results to return. Will return less results if there are no more results left.

Result

A JSON array of user operation log entries. Each log entry has the following properties:

Name Value Description
id String The unique identifier of this log entry.
userId String The user who performed this operation.
timestamp String Timestamp of this operation.
operationId String The unique identifier of this operation. A composite operation that changes multiple properties has a common operationId.
operationType String The type of this operation, e.g. Assign, Claim and so on.
entityType String The type of the entity on which this operation was executed, e.g. Task or Attachment.
property String The property changed by this operation.
orgValue String The original value of the changed property.
newValue String The new value of the changed property.
deploymentId String If not null, the operation is restricted to entities in relation to this deployment.
processDefinitionId String If not null, the operation is restricted to entities in relation to this process definition.
processDefinitionKey String If not null, the operation is restricted to entities in relation to process definitions with this key.
processInstanceId String If not null, the operation is restricted to entities in relation to this process instance.
executionId String If not null, the operation is restricted to entities in relation to this execution.
caseDefinitionId String If not null, the operation is restricted to entities in relation to this case definition.
caseInstanceId String If not null, the operation is restricted to entities in relation to this case instance.
caseExecutionId String If not null, the operation is restricted to entities in relation to this case execution.
taskId String If not null, the operation is restricted to entities in relation to this task.
jobId If not null, the operation is restricted to entities in relation to this job.
jobDefinitionId If not null, the operation is restricted to entities in relation to this job definition.

Response Codes

Code Media type Description
200 application/json Request successful.
400 application/json Returned if some of the query parameters are invalid, for example if a sortOrder parameter is supplied, but no sortBy. See the Introduction for the error response format.
