We’re excited to announce Camunda Platform 7.15, the latest release of our process automation solution. This release is packed with new features that boost productivity for professional software developers and low-code developers who are building end-to-end process automation. We’re rolling out reusable process components, more out-of-the-box RPA bot support, multi-metric reports for your processes, new DMN collaboration features, and much more. Read on to learn about a few select features.
Share a catalog of reusable workers and RPA bots in your team
To connect Camunda to a back-end system or another endpoint, you can build a custom integration, which we call a “worker.” Building a worker is usually a task for a professional software developer; but once a worker is built, the ability to reuse it becomes a huge time-saver for other developers throughout the organization. Reusability boosts developer productivity, and it can dramatically reduce time-to-implementation for process automation projects.
Cawemo allows developers to share reusable worker templates through its Catalog. Camunda Platform 7.15 enhances the Catalog with powerful features that make worker templates more robust and easier to share. Now, a developer can specify all necessary input parameters, output parameters, and possible errors for each template — including conditional handling of BPMN errors that reduces coupling between the worker and the BPMN process. There’s built-in version control for templates, and user-controlled template sharing between Cawemo and Modeler ensures smooth collaboration for everyone.
The result: Teams can develop a shareable template library that eliminates rework and helps low-code developers deliver working automated processes faster.
Orchestrate Automation Anywhere bots
Camunda Platform 7.14 introduced an out-of-the-box integration with UiPath via our RPA Bridge and a user-friendly interface for orchestrating UiPath bots as part of BPMN processes. Camunda Platform 7.15 continues to make life easier for RPA engineers by adding RPA Bridge support for Automation Anywhere. This release also offers premade templates that help you quickly get started with orchestrating Automation Anywhere bots. You can use the Cawemo Catalog to manage and share these templates in your team and across teams.
The result: Greater return on your RPA investment through bot orchestration projects that low-code developers can implement quickly, with flexibility for future modernization.
Enhanced process analytics and dashboards
Most organizations have core business processes that span across many different systems or services, which leads to fragmented, disjointed process execution. When processes are fragmented, it’s hard to see how they’re performing from the time they start to the time they finish, which means teams struggle to pinpoint and solve problems, and they lack the data they need to improve processes. Optimize solves this problem by providing end-to-end monitoring and reporting for processes that are executed by Camunda Platform or by other automation tools. Camunda Platform 7.15 makes it easier to quickly build Optimize reports using a refreshed report builder interface and more powerful filtering options, including incident status and assignee.
Also, you can now create reports based on multiple metrics; for example, number of process instances and average process instance duration. Process performance is often influenced by multiple factors, so being able to view multiple metrics in one report ensures you get a complete view of process performance.
The result: Instant insight into process performance, even in complex environments.
Improved team collaboration for DMN
The DMN standard is a common language that business users, low-code developers, and professional software developers can use to model business decisions and implement decision tables. With Camunda Platform 7.15, you can create, edit, and publish DMN decision tables in Cawemo, so it’s easier than ever to take advantage of DMN for decision automation. We’ve also improved the usability of the DMN interface in Cawemo and Modeler, benefitting anyone who works with large, complex decision tables.
The result: Faster development of DMN decision tables and less risk of human error when working with large decision tables.
