New Decision Table Layout

Being able to collaborate and review a decision table without having to dig into detail is crucial. As part of our ongoing effort to make the DMN editor an even better tool, we’re introducing changes to the decision table layout to increase overall readability and, therefore, understandability.

These changes include more information about inputs and outputs and referring to the selected hit policy using their full name.

Furthermore, you can now resize decision table columns. Once you change a column’s width, it will be remembered when re-opening the decision table.

Since this release introduces quite significant changes to the DMN editor we would love to hear your feedback.

When working with complex DMN diagrams being able to navigate efficiently is crucial. We introduced a new means of navigating the DRD diagram elements without having to go back and forth between DRD and DRG element view.

  • Camunda BPM Telemetry: Community FAQ

    Camunda BPM version 7.14 includes the option to turn on Telemetry as explained in this earlier blogpost. This anonymous data will be used to help us better understand what people are really doing with the engine and will make it easier for us to highlight the community influence on future roadmaps.  When any of us stakeholders bring new potential features to the table for an upcoming release, our opinion on its own isn’t enough to shift the roadmap. Any good proposal needs to be data-driven. At the moment, a lot of the data I bring along with my proposals comes from forum posts, individual requests on JIRA, and one-on-one conversations with community members at user groups or other events.
