Camunda BPM 7.12.0-alpha1 is here and the highlights are:

  • Cockpit: BPMN Documentation
  • Cockpit: Embedded Stacktraces
  • 19 Bug Fixes

You can Download Camunda for free (click on Preview Release) or Run it with Docker.

If you are interested, you can see the complete release notes.

If you want to dig in deeper, you can find the source code on GitHub.

Cockpit: BPMN Documentation

With this alpha release, we introduce another functionality to make managing processes in Cockpit easier: viewing the documentation of your processes.

If you have added documentation to the flow elements of your process, you can now view it in the process definition as well as the process instance view. This way, you don’t need to switch to the Camunda Modeler when you want to access the documentation.

Documented elements are marked with an info sign () on the BPMN diagram. Clicking it will open a dialog to view the documentation. All documented elements are also listed in a table below the diagram. Clicking on a row will highlight the corresponding flow element in the diagram.

Process Documentation

Please bear in mind that this feature is only available in the Enterprise Edition of the Camunda BPM platform. To try it out anyway, please request a Free Trial or Quote

Cockpit: Embedded Stacktraces

Not everything goes according to plan. Camunda provides several features to monitor your processes and intervene if necessary. Stacktraces of failed jobs is one of such features. Previously, these were only viewable in a separate browser window.

From now on, we display incident stacktraces directly in Cockpit, making it unnecessary to leave Cockpit and open new tabs in your browser. Of course, you can still directly link to the embedded stacktrace in case you need to send it to someone. Just open the stacktrace and copy the current browser URL.

Variable Filter View

Stay Tuned!

This is the first alpha release on the road to Camunda BPM 7.12 (due November 30, 2019). The next developer preview
(alpha 2) is scheduled in the end of July and will be packed with new features.

Your Feedback Matters!

With every release, we strive to improve Camunda BPM. To make this possible, we are reliant on your feedback. Feel free to share your ideas and suggestions with us.

  • 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...
