Adding a Workflow Engine¶
This section demonstrates how to configure the WSO2 Identity Server (IS) to connect to the Business Process Management (BPM) component of WSO2 Enterprise Integrator version 6.5.0 . This can be done by creating a BPM Workflow Engine and configuring it accordingly. You can have many engines configured in different profiles and use one of them when creating a workflow.
An embedded Business Process Management engine is included in WSO2 Identity Server. However, if you need more flexibility and more extensibility with this feature than what is currently provided, it is advisable to integrate the Business Process Management (BPM) component of WSO2 Enterprise Integrator with the WSO2 Identity Server.
To create a BPM profile, click on Configure > Workflow Engine Profiles > Add. The window below will be displayed.
Fill in the details using the descriptions below to guide you and click Add.
Attribute Description Sample Value Profile Name A unique name to identify the profile.
WSO2BPS1(This should only contain letters and numbers.)
BPS Manager Host Services URL The host URL of the BPS manager node.
https://localhost:9444/services(This points to the manager node of WSO2 BPS that is already running.)
BPS Worker Host Services URL The host URL of the BPS worker node.
https://localhost:9444/services(This points to the worker node of WSO2 BPS that is already running.)
User name The user name that is used to authenticate the user in WSO2 BPS. The requests are sent to BPS as this user. Therefore, the user needs to have permission to deploy and invoke Business Process Execution Languages (BPEL) and perform human tasks.
