Configuring the task

Create custom versions of an actor for specific use cases. Set a task's name and input parameters.

Once you create the task, you can configure its name and set up options and input for the actor. If you leave the options configuration empty, or partially empty, when you run the task, the missing options configuration will be pre-filled with values from the actor's configuration.

A task's name should be 3-63 characters long.

A Task's input configuration works like an actor's, you can either set up raw input with a configured content type, or, if the actor has a defined input schema, a visual input UI will be visible.
