BPMN in Modeler


BPMN diagrams must be created for the process engine they intend to be deployed on. You cannot run a BPMN diagram modeled for Camunda 7 in Camunda 8, or vice versa, at this time.

Start modeling

Start Modeling

Web and Desktop Modeler both offer a similar core BPMN 2.0 Modeling experience:

  • Add BPMN elements from the palette on the left side of the page by dragging and dropping them onto the diagram canvas.
  • Change the type of element in place by clicking on an element to reveal the context menu. Then, click the wrench icon to change the type of element to a service task or user task, for example.



The demo above shows how to create more BPMN 2.0 elements like lanes, task types, and event definitions.

BPMN 2.0 coverage

The Modeler covers all BPMN 2.0 elements for modeling processes and collaborations.

BPMN 2.0 properties for execution

In the properties panel on the right side, view and edit attributes that apply to the selected element.
