Before you begin, if you have changed the API Manager's default user and role, make sure you do the following changes:

  • Give the correct credentials in the <BPS_HOME>/repository/conf/epr files.
  • Change the credentials of the workflow configurations in the registry resource _system/governance/apimgt/applicationdata/workflow-extensions.xml.
  • Point the database that has the API Manager user permissions to BPS.
  • Share any LDAPs, if exist.
  • Change the .ht file of the relevant human task.

    Unzip the <APIM>/business-processes/user-signup/ file, update the role as follows in the file, and ZIP the UserApprovalTask-1.0.0 folder.

    Code Block
    <htd:argument name="role">
  • Change the allowedRoles parameter in the <APIM_HOME>/repository/deployment/server/jaggeryapps/admin-dashboard/site/conf/site.json file.


  1. Download WSO2 Business Process Server.  

  2. Set an offset of 2 to the default BPS port in the <BPS_HOME>/repository/conf/carbon.xml file. This prevents port conflicts that occur when you start more than one WSO2 product on the same server. Also see Changing the Default Ports with Offset.

    Code Block

    Tip: If you change the BPS port offset to a value other than 2 or run the API Manager and BPS on different machines (therefore, want to set thehostname to a different value than localhost), you do the following:

    • Search and replace the value 9765 in all the files (.epr) inside <APIM_HOME>/business-processes folder with the  new port (9763 + port offset.)


  3. Open the  <BPS_HOME>/repository/conf/humantask.xml  file and  <BPS_HOME>/repository/conf/b4p-coordination-config.xml  file and set the  TaskCoordinationEnabled  property to true.

    Code Block
  4. Copy the following from the <APIM_HOME>/business-processes/epr folder to the <BPS_HOME>/repository/conf/epr folder. If  
    If the <BPS_HOME>/repository/conf/epr folder isn't there, please create it.


    Make sure to give the correct credentials in the  <BPS_HOME>/repository/conf/epr  files. 

    • UserSignupService.epr
    • UserSignupProcess.epr
  5. Start the BPS server and log in to its management console (https://<Server Host>:9443+<port offset>/carbon).  

  6. Select Add under the Processes menu and upload the <APIM_HOME>/business-processes/user-signup/BPEL/ file to BPS. This is the business process archive file.
  7. Select Add under the Human Tasks menu and upload the <APIM_HOME>/business-processes/user-signup/HumanTask/ file to BPS. This is the human task archived file.
