Complex processes are tough to grasp without a clear diagram.

Camunda Modeler uses open standards such as BPMN and DMN, combined with an AI-powered co-pilot facilitating fast, effective design across all team members.

“Camunda’s been amazing for us. Our Product Owners write in business terms. They just lay it all out in BPMN and then hand it to the developers. This lets our business analysts review solutions, ask detailed questions, and approve diagrams before any code is written.”

Jimmy Floyd, Solution Architect, 24 Hour Fitness

Boost Business Agility with Web Modeler API

CI/CD workflows accelerate product delivery to ensure companies remain agile and responsive in ever-evolving markets. The Web Modeler API simplifies integrating with CI/CD workflows using popular pipelines such as Jenkins or Azure DevOps. Advanced permissions help developers efficiently access and modify projects and files to ensure vital resources stay in sync with your version control system.

Align teams on complex processes with visual modeling

Camunda Modeler aligns business and IT teams using standards-based BPMN diagrams.

Versioning lets teams iterate on process design to find what works best. Comments and constructs can be added to the model allowing teams to collaborate to ensure alignment from anywhere. With these collaboration methods, you can transform workflows into easy-to-read process models that can be shared company-wide.

Use advanced workflow patterns to orchestrate end-to-end processes

Modeler supports deep BPMN concepts, providing visibility into even the most complex processes.

With support for advanced workflow patterns, you can go beyond basic automation and transform it into an end-to-end process. For example:

  • Compensation Events to manage transactions and ensure proper handling of any necessary rollbacks. 
  • Event Sub-Processes enhance process flexibility by responding to events occurring during process execution.
  • Multi-Instance to handle multiple instances of a task, either in parallel or sequentially, to accommodate complex scenarios.
  • Error Handling to ensure robust processes with comprehensive mechanisms for managing exceptions and errors.

Camunda offers what you need to address critical business processes while providing low-code components to get there faster and allow you to adapt to changes quickly.

Boost developer satisfaction and productivity

We love developers and aim to provide an excellent developer experience and programming environment. One way we show this is by adopting FEEL (Friendly Enough Expression Language), designed to make expressions easier to read and write. With FEEL, developers can define expressions in BPMN diagrams, DMN diagrams, and Forms which are easily understood by both business professionals and developers.

The embedded FEEL Expression Editor provides developers with an enhanced experience for crafting and fine-tuning expressions to map and transform data.

  • Syntax highlighting ensures developers can find and correct mistakes before deployment.
  • Context-aware suggestions help developers write accurate FEEL expressions faster.
  • Auto-completing code will display variables, operators, and functions based on the context of the expression.

The FEEL Expression Editor opens in a popup that you can effortlessly resize and reposition over your BPMN diagrams or forms, ensuring a distraction-free environment for expression creation. In addition, the popup editor boasts real-time updates, enabling you to compose or modify expressions while seeing the changes happening in real-time.

Build forms in a few clicks

Create user task forms in minutes with an intuitive, drag-and-drop builder.

For human task orchestration, quickly design and deploy custom forms to Tasklist. Modeler’s integrated form builder lets you quickly build and preview dynamic forms before deployment. For more custom needs, you can also leverage the fully-supported form-js library, making it easy to synchronize custom forms in your front-end applications.

AI Form Buiilder

Transform business logic into forms with AI

With the AI-assisted Form Builder, you simply describe your use case, and a form is generated automatically. Form Builder uses generative AI to help speed up the ideation phase of building a form so developers can focus on refinement and adding technical logic.

Design processes locally or in the cloud

Camunda Web Modeler offers powerful collaborative abilities like commenting, paired process design, and milestone creation. You can even set up a beta version of Web Modeler to run in a self-managed environment. If you prefer a local development experience, download Desktop Modeler and start designing your process from your desktop.

Bring process visibility to your center of excellence

Share BPMN diagrams so everyone understands what’s powering the business.

Business processes are the algorithms that define an organization. Enable teams to better understand the workflows running behind the scenes with shareable BPMN models and token simulation. Store them in your preferred repository or embed them on an internal company webpage like Confluence for greater visibility.

Tailored views for different users

Modeler provides a personalized modeling experience for process designers, analysts, and developers tailored to their needs and experience level. 

  • Design mode for collaborating and creating a process model, with the ability to quickly link decision tables, forms, and other processes
  • Implementation mode gives developers everything they need to define properties in the BPMN diagram, including helpful warnings to ensure smooth process deployments

Test and demonstrate processes with confidence

Easily validate a process at any stage of development as often as needed with no risk to production systems. This dramatically reduces efforts to simulate a process and realistically shortens the development feedback loop. 

This positions your team for continuous improvement and alignment:

  • Developers can rapidly develop processes through trial-and-error experimentation.
  • Testers can perform their tests easily and frequently without affecting production systems.
  • Business stakeholders can better understand and validate that the process behaves as expected.
