This function may not be compatible with all features of Appian. For details, see the Feature Compatibility section below.

Function

a!urlForTask( taskIds, returnTaskPathOnly )

This function returns the URL of a process task given the task ID.

See also: Process Task Link: Use this component to within a Link Field to create a link to a process task.

Parameters

Keyword Type Description

taskIds

List of Number (Integer)

Task IDs of process tasks to generate links.

returnTaskPathOnly

Boolean

If true, only the last path segment to the task is included; if false, the full URL of the task is returned. Default: false

Returns

Text Array

Usage considerations

  • The taskIds parameter is required. If no task exists with the provided ID number, a URL is still returned.
  • If returnTaskPathOnly is true, only the task path after /task is returned.
  • If returnTaskPathOnly is false, the URL will return the Tempo URL for the task.
  • To create a URL to a site, use returnTaskPathOnly=true and append the path only to the end of the site URL in the following format: <base_url>/suite/sites/<site_name>/task/<task_path>.
  • If a user does not have viewer rights to the task in the returned URL, the user will see an error when trying to open the URL.
