We have Camunda Cockpit as a great tool for monitoring and operations. But roles and requirements for monitoring and operations always differ in our real-life projects – so we allow plugins for Cockpit. In the last 48 hours (on our Camunda hackdays) we implemented a “plugin store” for the existing community plugins – so everybody can much easier try out plugins or see what plugins exist.

The plugin store scans various GitHub repositories and searches for plugin metadata. And we compiled a list of all default plugins included in the standard distribution (as most of the cockpit functionality is implemented as plugin). You can browse through all plugins easily:

After collecting plugins you can:

  • download the cockpit.war: In the background this clones the GitHub repository and does a Maven build for all plugins. Then a cockpit Maven project is created which does an overlay of the original cockpit and adds all plugins as dependency. This generates the cockpit.war which then is provided as download.
  • download the pom.xml and index.html: You can download the pom.xml used to generate cockpit and build it yourself. The index.html must be included in cockpit to exclude default plugins.
  • save the configuration: You will get a unique URL to access the configuration later on – or to send it to your colleagues.
Try it out and give us feedback in the forum.
If you want to develop own plugins these links may be convenient for you – so you can help filling our plugin store immediately:
Thanks guys (Christian, Falko and Ingo) – we were a great team. Can’t wait for hackdays 2015!

  • 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.
