Log Level Configuration for BPMN Stack Trace

We’ve added a new configuration property called logLevelBpmnStackTrace to change the default DEBUG level of the BPMN stack trace.

The default behavior remains the same as before, so you don’t have to do anything.

However, if you want to see the BPMN stack traces in the log, but don’t want to turn on debug logging, then you can change their log level with this parameter.

<property name="logLevelBpmnStackTrace" value="INFO" />

Possible values are: ERROR, WARN, INFO, DEBUG, TRACE.

Exception Error Codes

Sometimes, an error occurs when you call the Camunda 7 Java or REST API.

Reading the error message might help a human being to understand the root cause of the problem. However, evaluating error messages in an automated way is not a good idea since:

  • The message might change with newer versions.
  • Relying on fragments of the message can be error-prone.

This is why we introduced static exception codes your business logic can rely on to determine specific problems and react accordingly. Look up our built-in error codes in our glossary.

You can also define your custom error codes by registering a custom code provider or assigning them to your exceptions thrown from the delegation code.

Read more about this feature in the User Guide and learn how to access error codes via Java, REST, or Open API.

    In this blog series, we highlight the customers who have chosen to utilize Camunda Platform 8 and explore the challenges those companies are attempting to overcome using process orchestration. For the latest installment of Why Camunda 8, we spoke with R-KOM, a telecommunications company based in Regensburg, Germany. When R-KOM was founded in 1997, its shareholders pooled their telecommunications infrastructure, which had evolved over decades with utility networks for water, electricity, and gas.

Over the years, the company’s high-performance infrastructure and a broad range of products have grown. Today, R-KOM has a number of city networks in Eastern Bavaria...
