Perform action UI action in DX API

Suggest edit Updated on June 8, 2021

The Perform action action submits flow actions and completes assignments under certain conditions. Learn about the JSON structure and elements of a sample Perform action action, to understand how you can integrate it into your custom application.

The following JSON code is a sample API response for the Perform action action:

  "actionSets": [
      "actions": [
          "actionProcess": {
            "actionName": "PortletAction"
          "action": "takeAction"
      "events": [
          "event": "click"


a Perform action with a Flow action
  • The actionSets, actions, and events elements are arrays.
  • DX API v1 does not support the when conditions in the action set.

For the Angular starter kit, note the following statements:

  • Perform action invokes the POST /assignments/{ID}?actionID={actionID} endpoint, and then the data that users enter is saved in the data base.
  • The implementation displays the form from which the action was launched.
  • Only the Click event is supported. The remaining events are returned in a DX API response, but have no effect.
