JavaScript task

The JavaScript task lets you write custom JavaScript code snippets for your integration.

Using the JavaScript Editor, you can code complex data mapping logic for your integration, perform variable assignments, and add or modify integration variables.

The JavaScript Editor supports the following features:

  • A minimap that displays a high-level overview of the script code and helps with quick navigation.
  • Syntax/code highlighting, indentation, and line numbering for easier code readability and structure recognition.
  • Error highlighting to find and track errors in code.
  • Folding to expand and collapse regions of the script code.
  • Click-to-copy option to copy the script code to the clipboard.

Configure the JavaScript task

To add a JavaScript task to your integration, perform the following steps:

  1. In the Google Cloud console, go to the Application Integration page.

    Go to Application Integration

  2. In the navigation menu, click Integrations.

    The Integrations List page appears.

  3. Select an existing integration or create a new integration by clicking Create integration.

    If you are creating a new integration:

    1. Enter a name and description in the Create Integration dialog.
    2. Select a Region for the integration from the list of supported regions.
    3. Click Create.

    This opens the integration in the integration designer.

  4. In the integration designer navigation bar, click +Add a task/trigger > Tasks to view the list of available tasks.
  5. Click and place the JavaScript element in the integration designer.
  6. Click the JavaScript element on the designer to view the JavaScript task configuration pane.
  7. Click Open script editor to view and edit the JavaScript Editor.
  8. Write your JavaScript code inside the executesScript(event) function that is automatically created in the JavaScript Editor. Close the editor once complete, any changes will be autosaved.

    For information about accessing integration variables and the supported functions, see Using the JavaScript Editor.

    For information about viewing the generated execution logs, see Execution logs.

Using the JavaScript Editor

To view and edit the JavaScript Editor, go to the JavaScript task configuration pane and click Open script editor. The JavaScript Editor by default contains a function named executesScript(event).


  • executesScript() is the function that is called when Application Integration executes the JavaScript task during an integration's run.
  • event is the in-memory object of Application Integration.

    For information about the supported methods of the event object, see Access integration variables.

Access integration variables

Variables defined in your integration can be accessed from the JavaScript Editor using the Application Integration in-memory event object.

The following methods are supported to access integration variables from your JavaScript Editor:

  1. getEventExecutionInfoId
  2. getGoogleCloudProjectId
  3. getIntegrationName
  4. getParameter
  5. getRegion
  6. log
  7. setParameter
Function name Description Usage


Returns the integration's run execution ID.

Return type: String

Syntax: event.getEventExecutionInfoId()


function executeScript(event) {


Returns the Google Cloud project ID.

Return type: String

Syntax: event.getGoogleCloudProjectId()


function executeScript(event) {


Returns the current name of the integration.

Return type: String

Syntax: event.getIntegrationName


function executeScript(event) {


Returns the value of the provided integration variable.

Return type: Data type of the integration variable

Syntax: event.getParameter("value")

Input parameter: Integration variable name.


function executeScript(event) { 


Returns the name of the integration region.

Return type: String

Syntax: event.getRegion()


function executeScript(event) {


Writes the specified value to the execution logs.

For information about viewing the generated execution logs, see Execution logs.

Syntax: event.log(value)

Input parameter: Any variable or function that is used in the script.

Example 1:

function executeScript(event) {

Example 2:

function executeScript(event) {
  event.log("Lorem ipsum");


Sets or updates the value of an integration variable.

Syntax: event.setParameter(value, value)

Input parameter: This function takes the following arguments:

  • First argument: Variable name.
  • Second argument: Value.


function executeScript(event) {
  event.setParameter("var1", "NewStringValue");

Retry on failure

You can configure various retry strategies to handle errors in a task. The retry strategies allow you to specify how to rerun the task or integration in case of an error. For more information, see Error handling strategies.
