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, click the Clusters tab, and click Create New Cluster.
  2. Name your cluster. For the purpose of this guide, we recommend using the Stable channel and the latest generation. Click Create.
  3. 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 Overview.

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

Professional Plan users have the option to create development clusters offering free execution for development. This must be enabled through your billing reservations.

Visit the clusters page to learn more about the differences between development clusters and production clusters.
