Start a new process instance

Camunda Platform 8 only

If a BPMN diagram is deployed via Web Modeler, you can start a new instance of this diagram.

To do so, click Start instance:

start instance

You can also specify variables written to the process context at startup. The variables must be formatted in valid JSON. As an example, you can use the following JSON:

"hello": "world"

You can also define the success of your processes by setting key performance indicators (KPIs) for your process using Optimize.
