You can Download Camunda for free or Run it with Docker.

For a complete list of all improvements, take a look at the release notes. Please also see the list of known issues.

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

Incident Annotations in Cockpit

When working on incidents, adding notes to inform a coworker about insights, decisions, or solution ideas can be a valuable asset for increasing productivity and transparency. We’ve added this capability to incidents with this release. Head over to Cockpit to give them a try.

New Plugin System for Tasklist, Admin, and Welcome

With this alpha release, we’ve introduced an updated frontend plugin system to all our Webapps. They now use the same plugin system that we introduced to Cockpit in the 7.14 release: a framework-agnostic plugin system that allows you to develop with the framework of your choice. Check out our Plugin documentation for more details.

Support for legacy Plugins

If you have Plugins developed using the old Plugin system, you don’t have to migrate them straight away. We’ve provided a way to include and use your old Plugins so your upgrade to the latest Camunda version isn’t blocked. 

To include Legacy Custom Scripts, simply add the old configuration as requireJsConfig in the config.js file of your webapp. Fullstack Plugins will require you to prefix the plugin id with “legacy-“.

Check out the Migration Guide for more details on how to include legacy plugins.

The compatibility also works for Cockpit Plugins which were not compatible with 7.14.0.

Improved Searches in Cockpit

In an effort to continuously improve the user experience when using Cockpit, we’ve expanded the search for Process Instances at multiple points:

  • On Process Definition View, you can now filter for Process Instances with Incidents
  • We added multiple options to the Migration View. It now supports all options as documented in the REST API
  • When filtering for Process Incidents by Incident Type, the two most common types “Failed Job” and “Failed External Task” can be selected from a dropdown. You can still type and filter for custom incident types that are not part of the dropdown.

Changes to Supported Environments

With the 7.15 release, we will make the following changes to the supported environments of the Camunda Platform Runtime:
