The Business Process Management Initiative (BPMI) has developed a standard Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN). The BPMN 2.0 specification was released to the public in January, 2011. BPMN has been integrated to EI Business Process by using the Activiti engine 5.19.0, which is a light-weight workflow and the Business Process Management (BPM) platform, targeted at business people, developers and system admins. It is open-source and distributed under the Apache license. The Activiti engine runs in any Java application, on a server, on a cluster or in the cloud. It is extremely lightweight and based on simple concepts.

  1. Download and run EI Business Process. For instructions see the Installation Guide.
  2. Go to https://localhost:9445/carbon/ and login with credentials (default username: admin and password: admin).
  3. As highlighted in the diagram below in red, you can upload BPMN artifacts (.bar extension) by navigating through Main → Add BPMN


    If a package with an existing name is uploaded, the processes in the package will be versioned. All old processes in the package will be retired and the new version will be deployed. Since only package-level versioning is available, the new package should include all the processes defined in the old package, although you may only need to update a single process in that package. 

  4. Once you uploaded the artifact successfully you can navigate to the BPMN deployed  Processes list and view the deployed processes.

  5. When you click on the package name you will be directed to a page to undeploy the package if necessary.

  6. When you click on the Process ID you will be directed to Process Information page which contains the process details, process diagram and process definition.

  7. In-order to view the BPMN process instances created, navigate to BPMN instances from the left side navigation panel as shown in the caption below.

  8. You will be able to suspend/activate or delete instances in the Manage section.
  9. In-order to access the BPMN rest service, you can use the following url pattern: https://localhost:9445/bpmn/{serviceName} with respective authentication (default username: admin and password: admin) headers.

Now that you understand how to upload BPMN artifacts and how to view, activate, suspend and delete BPMN process instances, next you can take a look at Managing BPMN Artifacts for information on how you can use the BPMN Explorer to interact with deployed BPMN applications.
