Camunda Run improvements

We are constantly working to get the Camunda Run distro closer to what is offered from our other Camunda distros. The 7.17.0-alpha3 release provides a start to the improvements of the Camunda Run distro.

Groovy scripting engine included

A large part of the Camunda community utilizes the Groovy scripting engine that is shipped by default with our other distros. As a result, the Camunda Run distro now ships with the Groovy scripting engine as well, in the form of the groovy-all-2.4.13.jar located in the {RUN_HOME}/configuration/userlib/ directory. Your BPMN process Groovy scripts can run out-of-the-box with Camunda Run now!

Camunda Connect plugin included

The Camunda Connect plugin is another feature that is included by default with our distros, except for Camunda Run. With this release, we fixed that. You can now use connectors in Camunda Run just like with any other Camunda distro.

Better control over the CORS filter

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) has been available for Camunda Run right from the start. CORS allows users to interact with the Camunda process engine from multiple origins via the REST API. However, the CORS configuration in Camunda Run so far only allowed specifying the allowed origins. We have now expanded this configuration with properties like allowed-headers, allow-credentials, and many others. Have a look at the Camunda Run CORS documentation for more details.

Share your thoughts with us

Your feedback is really important to us, so please download Camunda Platform Runtime 7.17.0-alpha3, try it out, and let us know what you think about it.

You can contact us in the forum, send a tweet to @Camunda, or file a bug in our ticket system.

  • 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...
