Spring Boot Version Compatibility

Each version of the Camunda Spring Boot Starter is bound to a specific version of Camunda BPM and Spring Boot. Only these default combinations are recommended (and supported) by Camunda. Other combinations must be thoroughly tested before being used in production.

Heads Up

Starting with version 7.13.0, Camunda BPM and its compatible Spring Boot Starter always share the same version. Also, the Camunda BPM version used in the Spring Boot Starter doesn’t have to be overridden anymore. Simply pick the version of the Starter that resembles the version of Camunda BPM you want to use.
