Create Task action

Create a task on any ServiceNow task table. After you choose the task table, you can dynamically select the fields to configure the action. Defining the Parent field associates the task to a parent record.

Field Values

Set the values of fields in the task to be created. For example, to set the short description to a certain value, select Short description and set the desired value. To associate the task with a parent record, define the Parent field.


Waits to complete the action until the task completes and is no longer active (active=false).

Alternatively, you can add a wait condition by dragging-and-dropping a true/false field from the data panel into the Wait field. The flow only waits for the task to complete when the condition field is true.
