Tasklist does not submit form field with default value if variable has already that value


    • Type: Bug Report
    • Status: Closed
    • Priority: L3 - Default
    • Resolution: Fixed
    • Affects Version/s: 7.11.1, 7.12.0-alpha2
    • Fix Version/s: 7.12.0, 7.10.9, 7.11.3, 7.12.0-alpha3
    • Component/s: tasklist
    • Labels:
    • Environment:



      • A task with a generated form
      • The form has one form field that has a default value x
      • The variable exists already in the process instance with value y


      • I enter x in the form field and submit the form

      Current behavior:

      • Variable value x is not submitted with the form; the backend changes the variable value to the default value x

      Expected behavior:

      • Variable value x is submitted to avoid the backend overriding the variable value

      What are the steps to reproduce your problem?

      1. Deploy attached example.bpmn
      2. Start a new process instance
      3. Complete the user task form with a value of 6
      4. Complete the new user task with the same value of 6

      What is the problem?
      The form payload is the correct one the first time ->
      but empty the second one -> .
      The result is that the variable value changes to its default one (2) -> .

      What would be the expected behavior:
      The form payload of the 2nd try is the same and the variable value is set to 6
