Version: 8.2


Camunda 8.2

Versioning changes in Helm chart

Helm charts versioning changed in July 2023.

Starting from July 2023 (v8.2.8), the Camunda Platform 8 Helm chart version follows the same unified schema and schedule as Camunda Platform 8 applications.

Before this change, the Camunda Platform 8 Helm chart version only followed the minor version.

Release date: 11th of April 2023

End of maintenance: 8th of October 2024

Do not update from Camunda 8.1.X to 8.2.6

An issue in the Operate 8.2.6 patch was discovered after it was published on June 8th.

You should not update directly from 8.1.x to 8.2.6 (it will require manual intervention as indices break), you either first update to 8.2.5 then 8.2.6 or straight from 8.1.x to 8.2.7.

To prevent this entirely we removed the Operate 8.2.6 artifacts from this release.

As Camunda 8.2.7 was already released on Tuesday Jun 13th, you can just update to 8.2.7 directly, skipping 8.2.6.

OpenSearch 1.3.x support

  • Operate version 8.2+ support OpenSearch 1.3.x. However, 8.2.x patches will only be released on the OS 1.3 branch until end of 2023 given that OS 1.3 maintenance period ends by then. We recommend customers to go to 8.3.x which supports OS 2.5+.

Optimize and Helm chart compatibility

For Optimize 3.10.1, a new environment variable introduced redirection URL. However, the change is not compatible with Camunda Helm charts until it is fixed in 3.10.3 (and Helm chart 8.2.9). Therefore, those versions are coupled to certain Camunda Helm chart versions:

Release notes Release blog

Camunda 8.0.15 release is skipped

The Camunda 8.0.15 release pipeline lead to corrupted Zeebe 8.0.15 artifacts getting published. The whole Camunda 8.0.15 release was thus skipped and updates from Camunda 8.0.14 should go straight to Camunda 8.0.16.

Deprecated in 8.0

The DeployProcess RPC was deprecated in 8.0. It is replaced by the DeployResource RPC.

Removed in 1.0

The support for YAML processes was removed as of release 1.0. The resourceType in Deployment record and Process grpc request are deprecated; they will always contain BPMN as value.

Zeebe 0.26.0

Deprecated in 0.26.0

YAML workflows descriptions

YAML workflows are an alternative way to specify simple workflows using a proprietary YAML description. This feature is deprecated and no longer advertised in the documentation. YAML workflows gained little traction with users and we do not intend to support them in the future.

We recommend all users of YAML workflows to migrate to BPMN workflows as soon as possible. The feature will eventually be removed completely, though the date when this will occur has yet to be defined.

Zeebe 0.23.0-alpha2

Deprecated in 0.23.0-alpha2

  • TOML configuration - deprecated and removed in 0.23.0-alpha2
  • Legacy environment variables - deprecated in 0.23.0-alpha2, removed in 0.25.0

New configuration:

className: io.camunda.zeebe.exporter.ElasticsearchExporter

In terms of specifying values, there were two minor changes:

  • Memory sizes are now specified like this: 512MB (old way: 512M)
  • Durations (e.g. timeouts) can now also be given in ISO-8601 Durations format. However, you can still use the established method and specify a timeout of 30s
