We’re pleased to announce the second alpha release of Camunda Platform Runtime 7.17.0. This release features the following improvements:

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.

This feature is only available in the Enterprise Edition of the Camunda Platform Runtime. Test it out with a free trial.

The process instances search in Cockpit makes it possible to search for process instances beyond process definition boundaries. If several query criteria are combined, they are linked with a logical AND (conjunctive normal form). Sometimes, it’s necessary to search for process instances whose criteria value matches at least one from a list of criteria values.

With this release, we introduce IN Operator support for the process instances search for the following query criteria in Cockpit:

  • Process instance ID
  • Business key
  • Process definition key
  • Variable value

In addition, we have improved the usability in Cockpit and Tasklist when it comes to entering long comma-separated lists. To do this, click on the Expand symbol, which expands the comma-separated list into a modal dialogue that can now be conveniently edited.

Read more about this feature in the documentation.

History Time to Live Dialogue

We are introducing a pop-up dialogue for editing the history time to live value.

Previously, the time to live value could be changed without any additional confirmation which might have resulted in accidental, unwanted changes. Since this value can have a high impact on the workflow, we added an edit pop-up dialogue with confirmation:

In the dialogue, you can either set a new time to live value or clear its value.

REST API Endpoint to Fetch Telemetry Data

With the 7.14.0 release, we introduced voluntary telemetry.

With this release, we added a REST API endpoint to fetch the data that would be sent to Camunda if telemetry was enabled. This helps to understand in which environment the Camunda Platform Runtime is set up and what features are used. Fetching the data is as easy as opening an URL in your browser. It’s entirely up to you to choose who to share this information with, and you can decide to retrieve the data on a case-by-case basis – no matter if the telemetry feature is enabled or not.

Support for Spring Boot 2.6

Camunda 7.17.0-alpha2 features support for the latest minor version of Spring Boot. You can use Spring Boot 2.6 together with the Camunda Platform Spring Boot Starter. Make sure to check out the Spring Boot 2.6 release notes for further details on what’s new.

  • Feel Example Flow in Camunda 8

    FEEL more confident transforming data

    FEEL (Friendly Enough Expression Language) was created by the Object Management Group (OMG) “as part of the DMN standard”. Its goal is to be easy to understand, and at the same time, be full-featured enough to handle decision tables and literal expressions. When business and IT often work together on complex projects, writing expressions in a (relatively) accessible way reduces miscommunications and helps align teams. Camunda uses FEEL to map and transform business process data dynamically. For example, a loan application process pulls a credit score from an API call into a decision table. The decision table automates the next step of the process depending on the rules in the table. The data from the decision automation can then be...

  • Increase your resilience with new regions in...

    We’re excited to announce new regions for Camunda Platform 8 SaaS that further strengthen the resilience, performance, and data requirements for our SaaS customers. Enterprise customers can now choose to create their clusters in a number of regions including Europe West, US Central, US East, and the most recent addition, Australia South East. This provides multiple benefits, such as increasing availability, allowing to set up fail-safes, adhering to regulatory requirements for regional data storage, and reduced latency due to closer physical proximity. Resilience and redundancy in technology are important for all modern organizations and are top of mind for many. Across industries, organizations need a solution that scales effectively and is resilient to provide a good base for process orchestration....

  • Black title slide that reads, "The CAM project in JIRA is moving to GitHub"

    The CAM project in JIRA is moving...

    For almost 10 years, JIRA has been our development issue tracker for the core components of Camunda Platform 7. About 15,000 tickets later, Camunda’s engineering has grown from one team to a team of teams. Many new projects have used GitHub exclusively as a code repository and an issue tracker from the start. In October, we will move the CAM project to GitHub issues. With this change we are reducing the gap: our community can participate in our development processes with a single account. We achieve a unified approach for managing development issues, making it easier for everyone to participate. We thank everyone who has contributed to our CAM issue tracker and hope that the collaboration continues in our new...
