  1. Log in to APIM management console (https://<Server Host>:9443/carbon) and select Browse under Resources.
  2. Go to /_system/governance/apimgt/applicationdata/workflow-extensions.xml resource, disable the Simple Workflow Executor and enable WS Workflow Executor. Also specify the service endpoint where the workflow engine is hosted and the credentials required to access the said service via basic authentication (i.e., username/password based authentication).

    Tip

    Note that all workflow process services of the EI/BPS run on port 9765 because you changed its default port (9763) with an offset of 2.

  3. Go to the API Store Web interface and sign up.
    It invokes the signup process and creates a Human Task instance that holds the execution of the BPEL until some action is performed on it.

  4. Note the message that appears if the BPEL is invoked correctly, saying that the request is successfully submitted. 

  5. Log in to the Admin Portal (https://<Server Host>:9443/admin) and approve the user signup task. It resumes the BPEL process and completes the signup process.

  6. Go back to the API Store and see that the user is now registered.

    Whenever a user tries to sign up to the API Store, a request of the following format is sent to the workflow endpoint:

    Code Block
    languagehtml/xml
    <soapenv:Envelope xmlns:soapenv="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/" xmlns:wor="http://workflow.subscription.apimgt.carbon.wso2.org">
       <soapenv:Header />
       <soapenv:Body>
          <wor:registerUser xmlns:wor="http://workflow.registeruser.apimgt.carbon.wso2.org">
             <wor:userName>sampleuser</wor:userName>
             <wor:tenantDomain>foo.com</wor:tenantDomain>
             <wor:workflowExternalRef>c0aad878-278c-4439-8d7e-712ee71d3f1c</wor:workflowExternalRef>
             <wor:callbackURL>https://localhost:8243/services/WorkflowCallbackService</wor:callBackURL>
          </wor:registerUser>
       </soapenv:Body>
    </soapenv:Envelope>

    Elements of the above configuration are described below:

    ElementDescription
    userName
    The user name requested by the user
    tenantDomainDomain to which the user belongs to
    workflowExternalRefThe unique reference against which a workflow is tracked. This needs to be sent from the workflow engine to the API Manager at the time of workflow completion.
    callBackURL

    The URL to which the workflow completion request is sent by the workflow engine, at the time of workflow completion. This property is configured under the callBackURL property in the apiworkflow-managerextensions.xml registry file.
