Message correlation in REST API

With the previous release we added a message correlation method to the Java API. With this release we bring the new functionality to the REST API. (Read the docs).
The API is pretty straight forward, just execute a POST to the /messageresource. Example:
{"messageName" : "aMessage",
"businessKey" : "aBusinessKey",
"correlationKeys" : {
    "aVariable" : "aValue"
"processVariables" : {
    "aVariable" : "aNewValue",
    "anotherVariable" : true

This allows correlating a message to an existing process instance (or start a new process instance) in a single, atomic request.

The corresponding Java Api call looks like this:
Map correlationKeys = new HashMap();
correlationKeys.put("aVariable", "aValue");

Map processVariables = new HashMap();
processVariables.put("aVariable", "aNewValue");
processVariables.put("anotherVariable", true);

runtimeService.correlateMessage("aMessage", "aBusinessKey", correlationKeys, processVariables);

What’s next?

Now that we have the infrastructure ready for writing cockpit plugins, we can start implementing a bunch of awesome features in cockpit. We will now also start work on the login and security modules for the web applications.
On top of that, we will continue work on the REST API and the Websphere distribution.

  • Monitoring Camunda Platform 7 with Prometheus

    Monitoring is an essential facet of running applications in a production system. Through this process, organizations collect and analyze data, and determine if a program is performing as expected within set boundaries. When combined with alerting, monitoring allows for detecting unexpected system behavior to mitigate exceptional situations as fast as possible. Furthermore, tracking the performance of a system enables organizations to improve those aspects that have the biggest impact with higher priority. One essential aspect of monitoring is the list of key metrics you want to observe. There are different categories of statistics that can be of interest here. To observe the defined metrics, there are plenty of application monitoring tools on the market today. They differ in many aspects...

  • Securing Camunda 8 self-managed cluster and applications...

    Directory services are an effective way to manage an organization’s users, groups, printers, devices, and more. Most organizations accomplish this using Active Directory, Apache Directory, Oracle Internet Directory, or other similar tools. Recently I worked with a customer who wanted to see how he could secure the Camunda 8 Platform and process applications with such a directory. Their requirements consisted of: Allowing Directory users to access Camunda applications (Tasklist, Operate, Optimize) Accessing secured Tasklist & Operate APIs from our custom project Securing the custom project In this article, I’ll briefly explain the 3 easy steps taken to fulfill their requirements which include: Federate users from the Directory service into Keycloak Declare an application in Identity to access Camunda APIs Configure...
