Cockpit: BPMN Documentation
With this alpha release, we introduce another functionality to make managing processes in Cockpit easier: viewing the documentation of your processes.
If you have added documentation to the flow elements of your process, you can now view it in the process definition as well as the process instance view. This way, you don’t need to switch to the Camunda Modeler when you want to access the documentation.
Documented elements are marked with an info sign () on the BPMN diagram. Clicking it will open a dialog to view the documentation. All documented elements are also listed in a table below the diagram. Clicking on a row will highlight the corresponding flow element in the diagram.
Please bear in mind that this feature is only available in the Enterprise Edition of the Camunda BPM platform. To try it out anyway, please request a Free Trial or Quote
Cockpit: Embedded Stacktraces
Not everything goes according to plan. Camunda provides several features to monitor your processes and intervene if necessary. Stacktraces of failed jobs is one of such features. Previously, these were only viewable in a separate browser window.
From now on, we display incident stacktraces directly in Cockpit, making it unnecessary to leave Cockpit and open new tabs in your browser. Of course, you can still directly link to the embedded stacktrace in case you need to send it to someone. Just open the stacktrace and copy the current browser URL.
This is the first alpha release on the road to Camunda BPM 7.12 (due November 30, 2019). The next developer preview (alpha 2) is scheduled in the end of July and will be packed with new features.
