Camunda self managed - is it possible to Replace Elasticservice with Postgres?

Hi All
Is there a possibility to replace ElasticService with relational DB for Zeebe runtime?
We are planning to use camunda 8 self managed in out workloads where transactionality is of highest importance. We are not sure if elastic service has some eventual consistency presences over atomicity.
Also since we need to build our own cockpit and tasklist having relational DB is easier for us


Hi @Gopalkrishna_Kulkarn,

in theory it is possible to connect Zeebe to a relational database as well. You have to implement an exporter that writes into the database.

But you don’t have to have concerns about the eventual consistency in Elasticsearch. The Zeebe engine is built to handle it.

Hope this helps, Ingo
