We’re excited to announce the release of Camunda Optimize 3.4.0-alpha1.

Camunda Optimize provides business activity monitoring for workflows, supporting continuous process improvement by providing transparency into your automated workflows and decisions. Business-friendly reports, dashboards and alerts make it possible to identify process bottlenecks and improve end-to-end processes.

In the rest of this post, we’ll highlight some of the new capabilities introduced in Optimize 3.4.0-alpha1.

New Dashboard Assignee and Candidate Group Filters

With this first alpha release, we are introducing a new Dashboard Filter for Assignees and Candidate Groups. Similar to the other Dashboard filters, the new functionality allows you to simultaneously filter multiple reports by assignees or candidate groups and is especially useful when looking at User Task Reports.

The filter can be configured by Dashboard editors:

Afterwards the filters allow Dashboard viewers to quickly focus on certain candidate groups or assignees:

Applied filters can be seen on every Report:

The new functionality helps you to compare user task performance (e.g. idle time and work time) across candidate groups and even multiple processes at the same time. 

New Flow Node Status Filter

With this release, we introduce a new Flow Node Filter which allows you to filter on the status of a Flow Node. The new filter can be found in the Process Report Builder as part of Flow Node Level Filters:

In previous versions of Optimize similar functionality was available using the Configuration Popover in the report builder, but the old configuration option did not filter underlying process instance information. This is especially relevant when looking at raw data of the report or the number of process instances. 

As you can see in the above screenshot, with this version we also added another filter option — “only completed”. In previous versions, the “completed” Flow Nodes also included “canceled” Flow Nodes which is now called “completed or canceled flow nodes only”. 

Existing configurations will be automatically migrated to this new filter.

What’s Next?

We’ll release the next alpha of Camunda Optimize 3.4.0 in March 2020. Stay tuned.

A smooth update from Camunda Optimize 3.3 to Optimize 3.4 will be possible. Along with the minor release we will publish a dedicated update guide.
