BPMN model validator

Hi Dear Camunders and BPMNers,

I am currently facing a task how teach colleagues of BPMN so models can be used in Camunda.
I am thinking what is the easiet way how teach them validate their process.
I was thinking to show them how to validate a process through uploading a bpmn process to a testing environment or show them how to install Eclipse/InteliJ so they can build some projects but this seems too difficult for just modeling a process.
Do you have any better idea how to let people validate their process?

I have also found https://bpmn.io/blog/posts/2018-bpmnlint.html where it is mentioned that you plan to add such validator to modeler, do you have any news regarding the idea?

Best regards.



the project mentioned in the blog post is already live. Check out the CLI utility as well as the bpmn-js plugin which allow to validate the diagrams.

Hi @Michal_S,

you can also install the linting plugin in the local modeler of each user: https://github.com/camunda/camunda-modeler-linter-plugin.

Then they don’t need to upload their models.

Hope this helps, Ingo

Thank you @Ingo_Richtsmeier this looks it is what I am searching for since they would not need to install anything (and they might have it forbidden on their PCs)

I might be late to chime in, but in addition to check only on model level, we developed a tool that validates the interplay between model and source code behind delegates.

You can check viadee Process Application Validator and see if that fits your needs. It’s just a Maven Dependency and runs as a short unit test.



Thanks for suggesting this Sascha - not sure how i’ve never some across it before, it’s fantastic!
