I have question how can i connect camunda to database and perform insert/select after submitting camunda form, all this with camunda modeler?

Hi @Ghada_Aouina

how can i connect camunda to database

It would help if you describe the type of deployment and other related details. For example, is it self-hosted or SaaS, etc?

and perform insert/select after submitting camunda form

could you please provide a bit more details on what you mean by this?

Regard,
Alex

I’m using Camunda 8 self managed, what I meant is I want to be able to connect camunda to a database Mysql for example and be able to manipulate queries and the data that will be stored are entered during camunda form submission.

how did you deploy it? Camunda Helm chart or some other approach?
Can you share the configuration/property files used during the deployment?

I have a problem with deployment

Could you elaborate on what you mean? I meant Camunda Platform deployment. How did you deploy it?

when I click on deploy it doesn’t work even tho the endpoint is not wrong and camunda is installed on docker

We’re talking about different things here. Let me re-phrase my question.

Do you who and how installed your Camunda environment(I do not mean the Camunda Model but the Camunda Platform to which you want to connect)?

Hi @Ghada_Aouina - the process (and Modeler) do not connect directly to any databases. You need to use a Connector or write your own job worker to handle that. There are some database Connectors already (check out this awesome list on GitHub and the Camunda Marketplace). Some of the architecture explanations on this page may help with understanding how Camunda works with external resources.
