Summary: Hello World

It’s often the first, but it also works as the last.

Let’s summarize from the very beginning, how to build and execute a minimal dummy BPMN process where Zeebe is used to orchestrate Robot Framework.


It’s the time for Hello World!

Start Camunda Modeler

Camunda Modeler desktop icon

Choose Camunda 8 BPMN

Draw minimal process flow

Configure the service task

Deploy model definition

The playground Zeebe matches Camunda Platform 8 Self-Managed with Cluster endpoint http://localhost:26500 and Authentication: None.

Start new process instance

Open Zeebe Play

lZeebe Play desktop icon

Choose deployments

Choose your deployment

Choose the started instance

See how task is waiting

Open Robocorp Code

Robocorp Code desktop icon

On the first run, wait…

Create new robot

Choose standard template

Confirm children in workspace

Give robot a name

Align robot.yml with BPMN

Update tasks: to have a task with your service task definition type Hello World and map it to the default task in the standard template in its tasks.robot with robotTaskName: Minimal task.

  # Task names here are used when executing the bots, so renaming these is recommended.
  Hello World:
    robotTaskName: Minimal task

condaConfigFile: conda.yaml

Wrap robot

With Open Robot Terminal and typing wrap, the playground alias for rcc robot wrap.

Start RCC

RCC integration desktop icon

Watch RCC warming up

Watch RCC working

That’s all! It’s time to congratulate yourself!
