Web applications

To enable the Web Applications you can use the following starter in your pom.xml:


By default, the starter registers a controller to redirect / to Camunda’s bundled index.html. To disable this, you have to add to your application properties:


Building custom Rest APIs

The Camunda Web Applications use a CSRF Prevention Filter that expects a CSRF Token on any modifying request coming through the /api/* url segment in the context path. This means that any Requests mapped to "/api" will fail and the current session will be ended if no CSRF Token is present.

The default error handling coming with the Spring Boot (‘whitelabel’ error page) is enabled in the starter. To switch to the Camunda error pages (webjar/META-INF/resources/webjars/camunda/error-XYZ-page.html), please put them to the application folder structure under /src/main/resources/public/error/XYZ.html.

To use the enterprise Web applications, include another starter:


Also don’t forget to define the appropriate Camunda engine version (with “ee” suffix): see Overriding Camunda version.

If you are using the enterprise edition, you can also use the camunda.bpm.license-file property to provide a license file that is inserted on application start. Or copy your license file under the name camunda-license.txt to your src/main/resources.
