Embed DMN definition into BPMN file

Please don’t ask why …

Is it possible to embed a dmn definition into the *.bpmn-file?
I don’t mean the business rule task, but the decition table which is called by the task.

Many thanks,

If I understand you correctly, you want to include a DMN decision in a BPMN diagram. As far as I know, it won’t work with Camunda. You need to deploy a separate DMN file.

Hi @cnfg,

the BPMN standard was published a long time before the DMN standard, they didn’t know about it.

But BPMN has extension points, where you can add your own elements. You could not include a complete DMN diagram, but it could be possible to include the XML elements of a DMN diagram in an extension of the business rule task. The graphical diagram interchange section needs a special treatment.

Hope this helps, Ingo
