Create your cluster

To deploy and run your process, you must create a cluster in Camunda 8.

  1. To create a cluster, navigate to Console by clicking the square-shaped icon labeled Camunda components in the top left corner, and click Console.
  2. Click the Clusters tab, and click Create new cluster.
  3. Name your cluster. For the purpose of this guide, we recommend using the Stable channel and the latest generation. Additionally, select your region. Click Create cluster.
  4. Your cluster will take a few moments to create. Check the status on the Clusters page or by clicking into the cluster itself and looking at the Applications section.

Even while the cluster shows a status Creating, you can still proceed to begin modeling.


Zeebe must show a status of Healthy to properly deploy your model.

Development clusters

Starter Plan users have one development cluster, with free execution for development, included in their plan. Deployment and execution of models (process instances, decision instances, and task users) is provided at no cost. Additional clusters can be purchased through your billing reservations.
