Bizagi server prerequisites

Overview

A Bizagi project running on a .NET platform relies on an IIS web server (Microsoft's Internet Information Services), as described at System prerequisites.

For high availability and scalability, you may set up a Bizagi cluster with multiple nodes having Automation Server, so that the nodes are set behind a load balancer.

Consider that Automation Server has two main components supporting the runtime of your processes:

Work portal: A web-based portal where end users to log in to work on processes.

The Work portal is set as a web application inside of the IIS.

Scheduler: An agent run by Bizagi as a Windows service, in charge of running system maintenance, offline and asynchronous tasks, all which you can schedule and run in batches. The Scheduler is by default, and usually, set within the same server having the Work portal, though you may choose to install these two separately.

 

Prerequisites

You will need at the Bizagi server, the Microsoft .NET 4.6.1 full Framework.

You may install this component as directly available by download at Microsoft web sites:

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=42642.

Alternatively, you may let the Automation Server installer install it automatically.

 

The following OS versions are supported (bound to the IIS version they feature/support):

 

OS

IIS VERSION

Windows Server 2012 R2

8.5

Windows Server 2008 R2

7.5

 

Required Bizagi configuration

Once you have the .NET framework, ensure you consider these two tasks:

 

1. Enable Internet Information Services and its required features.

Turn on the IIS roles and features, as described at Enabling the IIS and its features.

 

2. Install the Oracle's connectivity client at the Bizagi server.

This is applicable only if you are connecting to an Oracle database.

Whether using Oracle as the processes repository (Bizagi's database) or when integrating an external Oracle database in the processes.

To install the connectivity client, refer to Installing the Oracle's connectivity client.
