Respecting the BPMN2 standard


I am currently trying to create User Tasks on Camunda and I have noted that the resulting bpmn file uses the following xml attributes for the assignee and the inputParamenter:

camunda:assignee, camunda:inputParameter.

These are, if I am not mistaken, not a standard way of defining such attributes.

I was therefore wondering:

  • Is there another way of producing a standard-compliant BPMN file?
  • Can the Camunda BPMN process engine import such BPMN files? (i.e.: Can we import BPMN files from other modelers?)

Thank you for your time.

Feel free to ask for additional information.

Best regards,

Extensions to the bpmn XML in order to execute the process is indeed part of the standard.
These extensions would simply be ignored by other engines and modelers.

This link may be of interest. Its the model interchange working group where you can see many BPMN tools interchange models…




Hi @Frajedo,

Camunda engine supports the BPMN standard way as well:

Hope this helps, Ingo
