Quickly try Red Hat Process Automation Manager in your cloud

It’s been some time since I last talked with you about putting JBoss BPM Suite (now called Red Hat Process Automation Manager) into your cloud, and with the new release, it’s time to talk AppDev in the cloud again.

It’s time to update the story and see how to put Red Hat Process Automation Manager in your cloud so you are set up with a standard configuration to start your first business rules project.

With the easy installation demo project described below, you can leverage process automation tooling through the business central web console running containerized on any Red Hat OpenShift.

Let’s take a closer look at how this works.

Below is the outline from the easy installation project, a demo that gets you started in the fastest possible way.

The goal here is to get you up and running with a standard configuration to start your first business rules project.

This section will take you through the simple steps to install the example project that gives you a fully operational, fresh-out-of-the-box installation of Red Hat Process Automation Manager.

Not only that, it will be a containerized installation that is created on your OpenShift installation!

  1. First ensure you have an OpenShift container-based installation, such as one of the following, installed:
  2. Download and unzip the demo.
  3. Add products to the installs directory.

  4. Run init.sh or init.bat file. Note that the init.bat file must be run with administrative privileges.
  5. Now, log in to Red Hat Process Automation Manager and start developing containerized rules projects (the address will be generated by the init script). OCP example:
    http://rhcs-rhpam-install-demo-appdev-in-cloud.192.168.99.100.nip.io/business-central (username: erics, password: redhatpam1! )

Be sure to give the container time to not only start up but to also start Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform with Red Hat Process Automation Manager. You can check on this by finding the deployed pod in the OpenShift console and looking in the logs tab.

That’s it. You can now start developing process automation projects at your leisure.

Stay tuned for more by watching for updates here or by following the projects at Red Hat Demo Central.

As an extra, you can follow along as the online workshops and the Red Hat Automation Process Manager starter kit is updated are updated. Here’s a separate project with a local installation of Red Hat Process Automation Manager, in case you want to avoid containers and cloud deployment.
