Bizagi parameters configuration

Overview

The environment configuration determines the way in which sending email, the Scheduler, uploads and logging options are configured.

This option is found in the Configuration Tab in the Management Console.

 

MC_Configuration

 

Environment configuration option

Environment Configuration has three main options:

Popular

Advanced

Custom

 

EnvironmentConfig2

 

note_pin

Before the first deployment, you configure ALL environments in Development in the Bizagi Studio. The first deployment take the configuration to each environment. After that, make changes to Environment Configurations using the Management Console for each environment.

If you want changes to be a permanent, part of the process design, make them in the development environment as well.

 

Popular

From this option you can configure the parameters for sending email for each environment (Development, Test, Production).

 

EnvironmentConfig3

 

The parameters to be configured are:

 

OPTION

DESCRIPTION

Notifications options

Enable Email

Allows Bizagi to send emails, or prevents it. Select this option to permit sending e-mails. If it is not selected, emails will be ignored.

SMTP Server

Defines the name of the SMTP server. The SMTP can be local (localhost) for specific testing purposes in the Development environment.

For Testing and Production environments the server must be the company's server from where e-mails are sent.

SMTP Server Account

Defines the SMTP account (or address) used to send e-mails. It must be a valid e-mail address on the SMTP server.

If the local server (localhost) is used, the e-mail address may be a non-valid one. If a real SMTP server is used, the address must belong to the domain.

Send Email Copy to

Defines an e-mail account to which a copy of all mails sent by the application will be sent

Send Email BCC to

Defines an e-mail account to which a BLIND copy of all mails sent by the application will be sent

Email integration

Enable lookup email

Enables the possibility to retrieve emails from the configured account and Complete tasks via email, without entering the Work Portal.

Connection type

Depending of your company's requirements the available options are Exchange, POP3 and IMAP.

Enable SSL

Defines whether Bizagi uses SSL to connect to your server. We recommend that you enforce use of SSL.

This option depends on your Mail Server configuration, and it is available when the connection type is POP3 or IMAP.

 

Exchange connections already enforce the use of HTTPS.

Port

Defines the connection port to your Mail Server. This option is available when the connection type is POP3 or IMAP.

Account

Defines the account that will receive email replies sent by end users.

Mailbox Service / Host

When Exchange is selected the Mailbox service receives the Exchange Web Service URL, which is an .asmx URL. The default URL for this service is https://[MailServer]/EWS/Exchange.asmx. Click here for more information about EWS and how to manage it,

When POP3 or IMAP are enabled, defines the server's name or IP of your Mail Server

Username

Defines a valid user name within your mail server to perform the connection.

Password

The account password.

 

note_pin

We recommend using an exclusive account to retrieve incoming messages for email integration. Bizagi will read all incoming messages and will mark them as read.

 

For traces and troubleshooting, errors are recorded in the Window's Event viewer.

 

Advanced

From this option you can configure the parameters of Advanced features for each environment (Development, Test, Production).

 

EnvironmentConfig4

 

The parameters that can be configured are:

 

OPTION

DESCRIPTION

SCHEDULER OPTION

Interval

Configures how often (in hours, minutes and seconds) the Scheduler service checks whether there are pending jobs.

UPLOADS OPTIONS

Upload Path

Define the physical Directory where files uploaded by the client are stored.

 

The value for this property may be a local folder or an external path to a location on a remote server. For remote servers, the path must be \\[IP Address or Server Name]\[Folder]\. Make sure you have write permissions on the folder in the server.

 

The default directory in Bizagi .NET is C:\BizAgi\Projects\[Project name]\Docs.

Upload Max File Size

Defines the maximum allowed size in bytes of files to be uploaded.

 

Use this table to convert to bytes the most common units of measurement for data storage:

MEASUREMENT

BYTES

1 KB (Kilobyte)

1,024

1 MB (Megabyte)

1,048,576

1 GB (Gigabyte)

1,073,741,824

SOA OPTION

SOA Business Key Enforcement

The option to un-select this checkbox, is available for Bizagi .NET.

If selected, and you use the SOA layer, Bizagi displays an exception when attempting to register a business key pointing to either a parameter or master entity that does not exist in Bizagi.

If the option is not selected the business key is saved as null.

LOG OPTIONS

Enable job logging

Enables the logging of information on every job execution

Enable entity logs

Enables the logging of information on the entities, and the logs of changes in user's configuration

Enable M-M relationship log

When this is selected Bizagi creates a log (Attriblog) in the database when there are any changes (relating or un-relating) in M-M (multiple-to-multiple) relationships

ENTITIES OPTIONS

(1) Attributes Length Maximum Threshold AND (2) Parameter Entities Instances Cache Threshold

Parameter entities in the Work Portal are handled in Cache if the number of attributes in the entity is less than the first parameter AND the number of records is less than the second parameter.

 

Parameter entities that have more attributes or more records than the thresholds will be loaded on demand (accessing the DB).

 

These parameters refine the application's performance when there is a large volume of data.

WEB SERVICES INTERFACES OPTIONS

Timeout

Configure a timeout for synchronous Web Services. If the value specified is less than or equal to zero, it is ignored, and Bizagi waits for a reply with success or failure, no matter how long it takes. Since this can cause blockages we suggests setting a value.

Logging Threshold

Bizagi logs interfaces that last more than this time.

ABORT NOTIFICATION OPTION

Disable Stop Notifications

When this option is selected the Stop notifications will not be sent. Stop notifications are sent to all users who have pending tasks in a case that is canceled in the Work Portal.

OPERATIONAL DATA STORE

ODS

ODS (Bizagi Operational Data Store) is an optional mechanism that improves Bizagi server's overall availability (enhances performance and reliability as well).

Provider Type

ODS connection configuration.

 

Custom

Here you can see project parameters for the different environments.

 

EnvironmentConfig5

 

To guarantee correct performance of all environments, Custom Parameters cannot be edited or deleted once they have been deployed.
