Camunda Modeler 1.12.0-alpha-3 Released

Written by Philipp Fromme on , under Modeling category.

We are proud to announce the release of Camunda Modeler version 1.12.0-alpha-3. This alpha release ships with the latest DMN modeling and the possibility to deploy diagrams directly from the Camunda Modeler. It also brings us one step closer to a stable release which you can expect at the end of March.

Improved DMN Modeling

Expression languages set to anything other than the configured default are now visualized which allows you to see at one glance which cells have a set non-default expression language.

Editing input expressions has also been improved. As of this release you don’t have to switch between simple expressions and scripts anymore. Both are technically the same and therefore can be edited in one place.

Deploy Diagrams directly from the Camunda Modeler

Deploying manually modeled diagrams to a Camunda BPM engine can sometimes be inconvenient, especially when you try to change the model and redeploy several times.

You can now deploy BPMN, DMN and CMMN diagrams directly from the modeler.

To do so, you must first have a configured deployment endpoint.

Configuring a deployment endpoint

You can then configure the deployment name and tenant id before deploying.

Besides an improved DMN modeling this alpha release also ships with the latest BPMN modeling that includes various bug fixes.
