KIE Sandbox: top 7 key new features

In the last months of 2021, the “.NEW environment” (, received a massive update, and now it’s named KIE Sandbox! Dealing with complex models and collaborating with others has just become much easier.
In this blog post, let’s go for a walkthrough of the top new features of KIE Sandbox.

A fresh “.new” Home Page

We launched a brand new home page. One of the cool additions to our home is the ‘Recent models widget’, allowing quick access to your recent models and also, now can import projects direct from GitHub, a long-waited feature!

Home Page

Multi-file support

KIE Sandbox now supports multiple files! Now you can have a set of numerous DMN and BPMN models and reference those, i.e., include a DMN Model to reuse his datatypes.

Multi File

Test your DMN models

Since some releases ago, on every change of your DMN model, we will combine your DMN model and your form input and evaluate it on the DMN Engine. The significant part of this workflow is that it is really fast, looking almost instantaneous.
Now on Kie Sandbox, you can test multiple inputs simultaneously with our table view. See in action:


GitHub Integration

One of the critical highlights of Kie Sandbox is the integration with GitHub repositories.


You can now import a repository, create a repository from an ephemeral set of files, and push/Pull directly to/from a GitHub repository.


VS Code integration

With a single click on our UI, you can go to VS Code Desktop and and keep working on our Kie Sandbox models there!
