REST API, Workflow process definition start form model / task form model entries ordering

Is it possible to retrieve: workflow process definition start form model / task form model entries, in same order as defined in content model properties, via Public Rest API?

e.g. of custom content type:

<type name="sc:test">
      <title>Test Model</title>
      <parent>bpm:startTask</parent>

      <properties>
         <property name="sc:firstName">
            <title>First Name</title>
            <type>d:text</type>
         </property>
         <property name="sc:lastName">
            <title>Last Name</title>
            <type>d:text</type>
         </property>
         <property name="sc:birthDate">
            <title>Birth Date</title>
            <type>d:date</type>
         </property>
         ...........................
         ...........................
         ...........................

      </properties>
      <mandatory-aspects>
         <aspect>bpm:assignee</aspect>
      </mandatory-aspects>

</type>

After calling: GET /process-definitions/{processDefinitionId}/start-form-model, ordering of the result entries are not same as they are defined in above described model (1. firstName, 2.lastName, 3.birthDate ...).

Hi, 

You can set field visibility and field ordering in 'Share-config-custom.xml' as follows : 

<config evaluator="string-compare" condition="activiti$nameofProcess">
   <forms>
      <form>
         <field-visibility>
            <show id="sc:firstName" />

            <show id="sc:lastName" />

            <show id="sc:birthDate" />
         </field-visibility>
         <appearance>
            <field id="sc:firstName" />

            <field id="sc:lastName" />

            <field id="sc:birthDate" />

         </appearance>
      </form>
   </forms>
</config>

The above config is for workflow start task, condition contains the process id with prefix 'activiti$'.

Thanks,

Vidhi

Hello,

Thanks for your reply. I do not use share, I want to know if same thing was achievable from public Rest API, it would be nice if forms GET methods have some sorting functionality.
