What You Need to Know About Asking A Question

What this forum is for.

We’re here for a few different things.

  • A place for people to ask and answer questions
  • A place to learn about the Camunda Community
  • A place to discuss broader Camunda topics (eg. “Who else uses C# with Camunda”)
  • A place to get information on new releases, community extension and events



A Style Guide on how to ask Questions

When asking a question on the forum be aware that the more context you give the better chance you have of your question being understood and answered. It’ll also help users with the same problem find your post and understand how you solved it

  • Give details of your project and environment
    • Add the version software you’re asking about (e.g. Camunda BPM 7.13)
    • Describe your setup (e.g. Spring Boot / Tomcat etc.)
    • Mention the database, including version and driver you’re using
    • Give details of ANYTHING you might have changed from the default configuration
  • Show Don’t Tell
    • If you’re getting an error - upload the log.
    • If your model is causing a problem - upload the model.
    • Always try to upload the BPMN or DMN file rather than a picture
  • Properly format your post
    • The forum supports Markdown so read up on it

    • Code should always be formatted with opening ticks ``` and closing ticks ``` . like this

        ```Java
        @SpringBootApplication
        public class Application {
          public static void main(String[] args) {SpringApplication.run(Application.class);}
        }
        ```
      
    Making it look like this:
    @SpringBootApplication
    public class Application {
    
      public static void main(String[] args) {
        SpringApplication.run(Application.class);
      }
    
    }
  • When uploading long text like a log make sure to format it with 3 ticks followed by {r} like this
    ```{r} lots of text... ```
    this will create a scroll bar making the post easier to read.

Things to know about the forum

Code of Conduct

We want a respectful, inclusive community where people will not only feel welcome but also feel like they’re part of something worthwhile. We’ve got a code of conduct that we feel will help build such a community.

https://camunda.com/events/code-conduct/

Who’s answering the questions?

Questions you post here are answered by the members of the community who volunteer their time to share their knowledge. These can sometimes be employees of Camunda or individuals who have embraced the community to the point where they’re happy to give back.

What if no one is responding to my post?

There are few reasons why you might not get a response to your question.

  • You’ve phrased the question badly and it’s difficult to understand
  • It’s hard to read due to bad formatting
  • People on the forum don’t know how to answer your question

In most cases - making sure your question adheres to the style guide below will go a long way to making it easier to answer. If nobody seems to know the answer, please consider posting the solution when you find it in order to help others.

DO NOT:

  • Create a new topic with the same question
    • Duplication like this confuses people trying to find an answer for the same issue.
  • Post the same question on other threads
    • Once is enough - asking more times is not going to help
  • Send a Private Message to a member of the community with your question
    • If someone answers a question via PM its not helpful to the rest of the community
  • Using @-mentions just to draw attention.
    • If there is a legitimate reason why another forum member should see your question by all means mention them, but don’t use them for any other reason
