Initial project configuration


Automation Server is the runtime platform where your designed business processes and applications operate and are made available to your corporate end users.

This section describes how to configure Automation Server for a testing or production environment, and set up explicitly your Bizagi project.


Ensure that you have already installed Automation Server  as described at Installation.


Before you start

Ensure that you have the appropriate licensing to support your production environment operations.


Configuration alternatives

Configuring the Bizagi project in a testing or production environment can be done in different ways:


1. By relying on Bizagi's One-click deployment feature.

Through this alternative, the production (or testing) environment is set up automatically by Bizagi from the development (by using Bizagi Studio), upon deploying the processes.

This possibility requires that there is online connectivity between your development environment and your target environment (i.e., production).

For more information about how to do this through the assisted feature, refer to One-click Deployment.


2. By manually setting up the Bizagi components.

Through this alternative, you set up the environment prior to a deployment of processes (you can leave the environment ready for use, and later deploy processes through the Advanced deployment feature).

For more information about how to do this through a manual procedure, refer to Advanced Deployment.



You may also combine both approaches, so that you choose to use the One-click deployment feature only for an initial (first) deployment (without having online connectivity between your development and production environments), and then continue to use the Advanced deployment for incremental deployments.
