Get Process Instance Count (POST)

Queries for the number of historic process instances that fulfill the given parameters. This method takes the same message body as the Get Process Instances (POST) method and therefore it is slightly more powerful than the Get Process Instance Count method.

Method

POST /history/process-instance/count

Parameters

Request Body

A JSON object with the following properties:

Name Description
processInstanceId Filter by process instance id.
processInstanceIds Filter by process instance ids. Must be a comma-separated list of process instance ids.
processInstanceBusinessKey Filter by process instance business key.
processInstanceBusinessKeyLike Filter by process instance business key that the parameter is a substring of.
rootProcessInstances Restrict the query to all process instances that are top level process instances.
superProcessInstanceId Restrict query to all process instances that are sub process instances of the given process instance. Takes a process instance id.
subProcessInstanceId Restrict query to one process instance that has a sub process instance with the given id.
superCaseInstanceId Restrict query to all process instances that are sub process instances of the given case instance. Takes a case instance id.
subCaseInstanceId Restrict query to one process instance that has a sub case instance with the given id.
caseInstanceId Restrict query to all process instances that are sub process instances of the given case instance. Takes a case instance id.
processDefinitionId Filter by the process definition the instances run on.
processDefinitionKey Filter by the key of the process definition the instances run on.
processDefinitionKeyIn Filter by a list of process definition keys. A process instance must have one of the given process definition keys. Must be a JSON array of Strings.
processDefinitionKeyNotIn Exclude instances that belong to a set of process definitions. Must be a JSON array of Strings.
processDefinitionName Filter by the name of the process definition the instances run on.
processDefinitionNameLike Filter by process definition names that the parameter is a substring of.
finished Only include finished process instances. Value may only be true, as false is the default behavior.
unfinished Only include unfinished process instances. Value may only be true, as false is the default behavior.
incidentType Filter by the incident type. See the User Guide for a list of incident types.
withIncidents Only include process instances which have an incident. Value may only be true, as false is the default behavior.
withRootIncidents Only include process instances which have a root incident. Value may only be true, as false is the default behavior.
