Camunda BPM Custom Batch 1.0.0 - New Community Extension

Written by Patrick Schalk on , under Community category.

Have you ever tried to create your own custom batch with Camunda BPM? Well, I did, and it was very time consuming and quite complex. There isn’t really a public API for this purpose. You have to work at the entity level and take care that batch configuration is saved to the ACT_GE_BYTEARRAY database table.

That’s why I’ve decided to create the Camunda BPM Custom Batch Extension.

The goal of this extension is to provide a simple way of using the Camunda Batch functionality for your own purposes.

If you have no clue what Camunda Batch is for, it can be used to split a huge workload (e.g., like reassigning all tasks) into small asynchronous jobs. See the official Camunda docs for more details: Camunda Batch
