REST API Create workflow / task

Question asked by d0m3n on Apr 9, 2018

I'm using the latest Alfresco community edition (5.2 - 201707). I would like to create a task with a REST call for a group of users after I add files in repository. I can do it manually by going to: My Tasks -> Start Workflow -> Review and approve (pooled review) -> Start workflow. 

I have been searching for a way to do this but in all the confusion about versions (community, enterprise, activity, etc) I cannot be a 100% sure if a way to do this by REST exists or not. In all documentation: Alfresco Content Services REST API Explorer there is no POST method for /tasks. Although some community posts say that it should exist.


Alternatively I can user Java API. Example would be appreciated, especially regarding how to initialize connection to a local alfresco server.


Thank you for any help regarding this.
