Differences between Enterprise and Community edition

Does the enterprise version differs in Web Apps(cockpit) compared to community edition alone? Or bpm-platform engine has differences as well?

When a new version of the CE is released (every 6 months) the engine is identical to the EE version. But between releases of the CE the EE gets a series of patch releases which the CE version will not get.

Thank you for the info.

Hi Niall,

I could see that the latest CE version is 7.15.0 but suppose if i use the 7.10.0 CE version now, will it have all the latest patches which the corrosponding 7.10.0–ee version has. Please suggest.

Hi @Gaga,

The release 7.15.0 is has all bug fixes as 7.10.19-ee and new features.

Hope this helps, Ingo

Is there any difference in persisting the Data in the Camunda Database for Community and Enterprise Version?

For example, Camunda Cockpit does not support "the history of running and completed BPMN process instances " in the Community version, so is that difference only for the UI part (cockpit) or is there some difference in DB persistence?

Hi @Himanshu_Singh,

the only difference in the database between Community and Enterprise edition may be improved indices from patch releases.

Both engines will store the same data in the database, only the enterprise cockpit can visualize them.

In the Community edition, you can query the historic data with the rest api.

Hope this helps, Ingo


Hi @Ingo_Richtsmeier
Is there any difference on java API calls , like if we are using CE then we can call less number of API calls ?
but CMMN models can execute only in Enterprise Edition right ?

Hi @Avinash_Rawat,

on the API level there is no difference between Community and Enterprise Edition on Camunda 7.

Both editions have the same power, the number of calls is not resticted anywhere.

And you can execute CMMN cases in both editions, as well.

The Enterprise Edition contains a Cockpit Plugin to visualize the cases.

Hope this helps, Ingo


Thanks @Ingo_Richtsmeier for quick response
