Installation and Usage

How to use with Spring Boot

How to use in container

This project produces a WAR artifact swagger-ui.war which can be obtained under the following coordinates.


Please deploy it into the container with your Camunda ditribution (tested with Wildfly 10 Camunda distribution). To invoke the Swagger UI, call http://localhost:8080/swagger/webjars/swagger-ui/3.1.4/index.html?docExpansion=none&url=/swagger/swagger.json in your browser.

Release Notes

The versioning of this artifact is following the version of Camunda BPM (especially engine REST), since it delivers the Swagger specification of the versioned Camunda REST API. For this reason, we start with version 7.7.0.


  • Initial contribution


  • Current Camunda BPM REST reference guide supplies not all information for definition of query parameters in some methods. Especially, some data type information is not present and is considered as simple string.
  • Due to the naming conventions and the size of the resulting specification, the entire History API is excluded from the spec.
