Project description

Build Status codecov Documentation Status


PyCamunda is a Python REST api client for the workflow and decision automation engine Camunda.

PyCamunda takes care of Camunda-specific characteristics and gives you an intuitive Python interface so you can focus on developing your actual business application. So PyCamunda deals with http requests, nested dictionaries, camelCase keys, datetime formatting and more for you.


  • .. create an instance of the PyCamunda class corresponding to a Camunda endpoint,
  • .. configure it using keyword arguments and methods,
  • .. send the request and get the response serialized in a Python data class.
import pycamunda.processinst

url = 'http://localhost/engine-rest'

get_instances = pycamunda.processinst.GetList(url, process_definition_key='MyProcess')
instances = get_instances()

for instance in instances:
    print('Process instance id:', instance.id_)


Process instance id: 174cb832-a8a7-11ea-8129-0242ac110002
Process instance id: 1a70a8e9-a7ed-11ea-8129-0242ac110002
