Tasks paramters

Elves execute tasks which are simply python function. These functions can take argument which have to be stored in Arangodb for later execution. Only a few restrictions apply to task parameters.


  • Numbers (integers, floats etc.)

  • Strings

  • Booleans

  • Lists

  • Dictionnaries

They can’t be:

  • Objects

  • Functions

For lists and dictionnaries, for now make sure they are not too big. Starting ~100,000 elements, the way we store them in Arangodb can cause performance issues. Check the corresponding issue to see where we are at
