I’m trying to configure some Element Templates in the Camunda Modeler to mimic some of the functionality we had with custom tasks in the legacy Eclipse plugin. I downloaded a fresh Camunda Modeler from the website, and it got put under the ‘camunda-modeler’ directory. Also under this directory, I created a ‘resources’ directory, followed by an ‘element-templates’ directory under that.
In that newly created ‘element-templates’ directory I created an ‘elements.json’ file, into which I copied the first example json file from the Camunda Element Templates webinar (https://vimeo.com/172081069), which creates a Element Template for Service Tasks. I re-started the Camunda Modeler, opened up a simple .bpmn file with a Service Task, and clicked on that task, expecting to see the Element Templates drop-down menu on the Properties Panel, like was seen in the webinar. However, the panel looked the same as before. No drop-down menu.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be going wrong here? Is there something incorrect about my approach? I tried to follow the steps in the github documentation and the webinar as exactly as possible, but the menu still doesn’t appear.
Thanks for your help,
