Zeebe JobWorker binding spec

Detailed documentation on the Zeebe JobWorker binding component

Component format

To setup Zeebe JobWorker binding create a component of type bindings.zeebe.jobworker. See this guide on how to create and apply a binding configuration.

See this for Zeebe JobWorker documentation.

Spec metadata fields

Field Required Binding support Details Example
gatewayAddr Y Input Zeebe gateway address localhost:26500
gatewayKeepAlive N Input Sets how often keep alive messages should be sent to the gateway. Defaults to 45 seconds 45s
usePlainTextConnection N Input Whether to use a plain text connection or not true,false
caCertificatePath N Input The path to the CA cert /path/to/ca-cert
workerName N Input The name of the worker activating the jobs, mostly used for logging purposes products-worker
workerTimeout N Input A job returned after this call will not be activated by another call until the timeout has been reached; defaults to 5 minutes 5m
requestTimeout N Input The request will be completed when at least one job is activated or after the requestTimeout. If the requestTimeout = 0, a default timeout is used. If the requestTimeout < 0, long polling is disabled and the request is completed immediately, even when no job is activated. Defaults to 10 seconds 30s
jobType Y Input the job type, as defined in the BPMN process (e.g. <zeebe:taskDefinition type="fetch-products" />) fetch-products
maxJobsActive N Input Set the maximum number of jobs which will be activated for this worker at the same time. Defaults to 32 32
concurrency N Input The maximum number of concurrent spawned goroutines to complete jobs. Defaults to 4 4
pollInterval N Input Set the maximal interval between polling for new jobs. Defaults to 100 milliseconds 100ms
pollThreshold N Input Set the threshold of buffered activated jobs before polling for new jobs, i.e. threshold * maxJobsActive. Defaults to 0.3 0.3
fetchVariables N Input A list of variables to fetch as the job variables; if empty, all visible variables at the time of activation for the scope of the job will be returned productId, productName, productKey

Binding support

This component supports input binding interfaces.

Input binding

The Zeebe workflow engine handles the workflow state as also workflow variables which can be passed on workflow instantiation or which can be updated or created during workflow execution. These variables can be passed to a registered job worker by defining the variable names as comma-separated list in the fetchVariables metadata field. The workflow engine will then pass these variables with its current values to the job worker implementation.

If the binding will register three variables productId, productName and productKey then the service will be called with the following JSON:

{
  "productId": "some-product-id",  
  "productName": "some-product-name",  
  "productKey": "some-product-key"  
}
