    Email Service Task - "Cannot find work item handler for Email"

    Tali Vakarian Newbie

      Hello, I'm a beginner with jBPM and I just wanted to do some experimentation with the email task.

      Right now it just looks like this: (i'm using the KIE workbench running on localhost)

      screenshot.jpg

      It deploys fine, but when I try to start the process by going into the list of process definitions and then clicking the "play" button for this process, it says:

       

      Process Instances failed to start: [ServiceTest.mainProcess:21 - Email:3] -- Could not find work item handler for Email

       

      I guess I know that I'm missing something here - but what? Am I misunderstanding what I've seen online? Because I thought you could just use the task node, plug in your values, and it should all work assuming you have a mail server set up properly. Any advice would be appreciated!

          Hi Tali,

           

          You should register the workitem Handler for Service Tasks. For email service task

           

          StatefulKnowledgeSession ksession = kbase.newStatefulKnowledgeSession();

          ksession.getWorkItemManager().registerWorkItemHandler("Notification", new NotificationWorkItemHandler());

            Hi Josny,

            from where do we need to register the work item handler. Please update the path please.

            Thank you.

              check section 5.4.4.2 of configuration in docs. There are few ways you can select to register handlers where the simplest one is to edit CustomWorkItemHandlers.conf finale that is inside kie-wb/WEB-INF/classes/META-INF

                Hi,

                Thanks for your quick response. I have edited my CustomWorkItemHandlers.conf as follows. But still get the same error. Please assist me since i am a newbie.

                 

                [

                  "Log": new org.jbpm.process.instance.impl.demo.SystemOutWorkItemHandler(),

                  "WebService": new org.jbpm.process.workitem.webservice.WebServiceWorkItemHandler(ksession),

                  "Rest": new org.jbpm.process.workitem.rest.RESTWorkItemHandler()

                ;

                StatefulKnowledgeSession ksession = kbase.newStatefulKnowledgeSession();

                ksession.getWorkItemManager().registerWorkItemHandler("Notification", new NotificationWorkItemHandler())

                  Maciej Swiderski Master

                  you should define another mapping for handler and not put code into the conf file e.g.

                  "Email" : new org.jbpm.process.workitem.email.EmailWorkItemHandler("host", "port", "user", "password")

                      check your server log as there might be reason why it cannot send email. Please make sure that you specified correct settings for your mail server in the conf file - replacing host with actual host name or IP address of your mail server, and same for port, user and password.

                        Thanks.  Your assistance is really helpful for me

                        This is how i edited conf file;

                        "Email" : new org.jbpm.process.workitem.email.EmailWorkItemHandler("smtp.gmail.com", "587", "<username>@gmail.com", "<password>")

                         

                        and my server log says;

                        java.lang.NullPointerException

                        at javax.mail.util.ByteArraydataSource etc......

                            that means you have not specified body of your email that should be set on the email task. Please populate all the fields for Email task and try again.

                              Thanks for your prompt response.

                              Now i get following message i think it os because of im working in a secured network environment.

                               

                              1. java.net.UnknownHostException: smtp.gmail.com

                              Does this work if I change my network environment?

                               

                              Thank you.

                                yes, that is pure communication error caused by your network settings as the external server cannot be found, make sure you can access that server from the machine where jbpm is running and that should solve the issue.

                                    Hi swiderski.maciej!

                                     

                                    Is possible to pass the Work Item Handler constructor's parameters through the Task DataInputs?

                                    For example the Email Handler constructor receives: host, port, user and password parameters. But they are static in the CustomWorkItemHandlers.conf descriptor. Would be nice if the Handlers could be injected in runtime or be able to set the parameters througn Task DataInput values.
