Event Based Processes

Event Based Processes are BPMN processes that can be created inside Optimize which are based on events originating from external systems. Event ingestion is the process of sending event data from external systems to Camunda Optimize to support business processes that are not fully automated with Camunda BPM yet. Based on this data it is possible to create process models inside Optimize - called Event Based Processes - that can be used in reports.

To enable this feature please refer to Event Based Process Configuration

Event Based Process Configuration

In order to make use of ingested events and create event based process mappings for them, the event based process feature needs to be enabled in the Optimize configuration. This also includes authorizing particular users by their userId to be able to create so called Event Based Processes that can be used by other users of Optimize once being published.

A full configuration example authorizing the user demo to manage Event Based Processes, enabling the event based process import as well as configuring an Event Ingestion API accessToken with the value secret, would look like the following:

  authorizedUserIds: ['demo']
    enabled: true
    accessToken: secret

Use Camunda Activity Event Sources for Event Based Processes

In order to be able to publish event based processes that include Camunda Event Sources it is required to set engines.${engineAlias}.eventImportEnabled to true for the connected engine the Camunda Process originates from.

Heads Up!

You need to reimport data from this engine to have all historic camunda events available for Event Based Proceses. Otherwise only new events will be included.

As an example, in order to be able to create event processes based on camunda events from the configured engine named camunda-bpm, the configuration of that engine needs to have the importEnabled configuration property as well as the eventImportEnabled set to true:

    importEnabled: true
    eventImportEnabled: true
