Task Deadline

A complex data type that defines a task deadline. These variables are used to configure task deadlines for Assign Task operation and Assign Multiple Tasks operation operations that the User service provides.

You can create a Task Deadline variable and use it as the value of the Deadline property of Assign Task and Assign Multiple Tasks operations. The operations use this property to calculate the date when the deadline occurs.

Create a Task Deadline variable only if you intend to use the value multiple times in the process. Otherwise, configure the Deadline property manually.

For information about data that can be accessed using Xpath Expressions, see Data items .

For information about configuring default properties, see Datatype specific settings .

Data items

Task Deadline values contain the following data items.


A Task Date value that represents the amount of time that passes after the task is assigned before the deadline occurs.


A boolean value that indicates whether the task instructions should be changed when the deadline occurs. A value of true indicates the instructions are changed, and false indicates they are not changed.


A Task Date value that determines the amount of time after the task is created when the deadline occurs.


A string value that contains the new task instructions to apply when the deadline occurs. This value is used only if the value of the changeInstructions property is true .


A boolean value that can enable following a specific route from the Assign Task operation when the deadline occurs.


A boolean value that determines whether a deadline is enabled or disabled.


A string value that represents the name of the route to follow after the Assign Task or Assign Multiple Tasks operation. AEM forms Server sets this value when the user submits their task.

Datatype specific settings
