BPMN file deployed but process definition is missing

I used the REST API function /deployment/create to deploy a bpmn file. After the file got deployed successfully, the database table ACT_RE_DEPLOYMENT has a record, but the ACT_RE_PROCDEF table is still empty, and no process definition was created.

Which REST API function should I use to insert a record into the ACT_RE_PROCDEF table? Thanks.

Can you post the model you’re using - It’s common that people for forget to tick the is executable tick box in models. this can prevent deployment.

Thanks for the tip. It worked. This was asked and answered in the google group as well:


Been there… done that.

Later on, you might also want to make sure you’re looking at the correct (most current) version of your model when testing code. Camunda does a VERY good job at maintaining model versions - meaning that, once your model gets deployed and you begin testing, don’t forget to clean up instances prior to stepping through tasks/code (etc).

A trick I’ve grown to depend on is watching the server logs during deployments - checking to insure the model is both deployed and without errors. The Camunda server provides excellent verification at deployment.
