• Drafting Your Camunda Cloud Architecture – Part...

    Have you started your first project using process automation as a service with Camunda Cloud? One of your first tasks would be to sketch the basic architecture of your solution, and this blog post will guide you through some important early questions such as how to connect the workflow engine with your application or with remote systems? Or what’s a job worker, what should it do, and how many do you need? This post is the first piece of a series of upcoming blog posts: Part 1: Connecting Camunda Cloud With Your World (this post) Part 2: Service Interaction Patterns with BPMN and Camunda Cloud (coming soon) Part 3: Writing Good Job Worker Code For Camunda Cloud (coming soon) Connecting...

  • Camunda Cloud Console Go Client Library

    When working with multiple projects and multiple Cloud Services automation becomes a must. Camunda Cloud resources such as Zeebe Clusters and Camunda Operate are no different from other components such as Databases, or Message brokers, these need to be provisioned for your applications to connect with. This project allows you to connect to the Camunda Cloud Console using the Go language or a command-line tool, allowing you to create automation around when remote environments are created and destroyed. You can connect to these APIs using any language as these APIs are just REST endpoints, but if you have automated pipelines using a command-line tool might be the best fit for you.  This project provides a binary that you can download...

  • Communication Between Loosely Coupled Microservices

    In our recent webinar titled “Communication Between Loosely Coupled Microservices” we got a lot of great questions and because of the limited time some were left unanswered. As community questions are really important to me I want to follow my tradition to answer remaining questions in a blog post (as I have for example also done roughly a year ago in “Webinar FAQ for Monitoring & Orchestrating Your Microservices Landscape using Workflow Automation”). What Was The Webinar About? You can find the slides (here) and recording (here) online. The webinar covered different styles of communication. This was explained by looking at how ordering food works: Synchronous blocking: A call uses a synchronous protocol, like HTTP, and blocks for the result. This is you, calling a pizza...

  • Swagger API access with Camunda Platform

    Have you ever fired up the Camunda Platform Docker instance and wished you could do live-calls to the API via a swagger server? We have! And like most things we wish we could do, we go out and make it happen. Coming Soon To be clear, this integration is coming to the official Camunda Platform Docker container with release 7.15. It’s just not ready yet. So this is really more of an interim solution rather than the be-all and end-all solution, but it works, and it makes sending API calls to a live instance of Camunda Platform a lot easier. So follow along and we’ll show you how to run it yourself. CORS is your friend, and not your friend In general, and...

  • “Hello Cloud”

    Setting up your Telegram channel with Camunda Cloud  If you’re a runner, then you know it’s important to change your running shoes from time to time. I’ve run many miles with the Camunda Platform. I’ve used it for my own projects, for tutorials, and taught people how to use it in workshops. Now, it’s time to put on some new shoes: it’s time to automate a process with Camunda Cloud. If you’ve also been using Camunda Platform and are interested in what it looks like to move to Camunda Cloud, come for a run with me. In the continuing pandemic situation, I need to stay informed, and know as soon as the situation relaxes. I find myself checking the Corona...

  • How can you Teach a Workflow to...

    If you read the first article in this series, I might have been able to convince you about executable processes? In this blog, the second in the series, I would like to go a step further and show you, with Restzeebe, how concrete tasks within processes are executed by a workflow engine. All my examples use Camunda Cloud. I don’t know of any other solution that executes workflows models in BPMN in the cloud. But now to the real thing. How can you teach a workflow to execute a specific task? I don’t want to go into too much detail, but with Camunda Cloud it works like this: Zeebe, the underlying engine, uses a PubSub system for workers. A worker is essentially the software that executes...
