Introduction to the Service Registry

Outdated documentation page

This is an old version of the documentation for Flowable until version 3.13 and for the Angular-based Flowable Design 3.14/3.15. If you are running the latest version of Flowable please check out the current version of this page.

In this guide, using the Flowable Service Registry Engine from a modeling perspective is described.

If you’re interested in the technical side to understand the way the Service Registry Engine works, then the Service Registry Developer Guide provides more details.

More examples can be found in The Data Object Modeler Guide

Service Definitions and Service Operations

After a service model is created (see the Service Registry Engine Developer Guide), it can be used in process or case models. To do so, drag the Service registry task to the canvas from the Flowable design palette:

01 palette

In the attribute panel, the service and one of its operations can be selected (one service can expose multiple operations):

02 model and operation

At runtime, the process or case invokes the service configured in the referenced service definition.
