Enabling the IIS and its features

 

Overview

Automation Server provides a Work Portal as a web-based application through which the end users log in to access the process applications and work on their daily activities.

In Bizagi projects running in a .NET platform, this Work Portal is set in the IIS (Microsoft's Internet Information Services), and it requires specific features enabled.
