Creating a new project


Create a new Bizagi project to get started automating your processes.


This project will run in a .NET platform.


Creating the project

Follow these steps:


1. Use the New project option in Bizagi.

You may click directly in the New shortcut, right when Bizagi Studio is opened:






Keep in mind that in order to create a project, your account needs to belong to both to the local Bizagi and the Administrators group (where Bizagi Studio is installed).





If your account does not have such rights, you will be prompted to enter authorized credentials:




2. Enter details of your project.

Make sure you name your project and define its location.


You may tick the Advanced configuration checkbox to specify details for the database server used by this new project.

For a quick start setup, you may disregard the Advanced configuration, and leave its checkbox unticked.




Click Next.


3. Enter the database server details.

If you chose the Advanced configuration, make sure you specify where you want your processes repository to be.

Notice that the database can be stored on the local computer or a remote server.


If you used the quick start options, you may use the SQL Server database that Bizagi Studio installs.

This database is detected automatically, so you would only need to input the default connection credentials which are:

Login name: sa

Password: BizagiBPM123





If you use the SQL Server database that Bizagi Studio installs (or a local instance), make sure you have at least 300 MB of free disk space in your C:\ hard drive.

Otherwise, when using a SQL Server database server (in a remote machine) make sure you have at least 300 MB of free disk space in that server.


If you want to use a different SQL Server database, specify the following information: 

Server: The name of the Database Server containing the SQL Server instance.

Database: The name of your project. Bizagi will create a database with this name. 

Login name: A login account to access the SQL Server instance

Password: The password for the specified Login name.

Unicode support: Make sure this checkbox is ticked to allow your database to support unicode characters.


Click Next.

Bizagi will start to create the project. This may take a few minutes:




Once the project has been created, Bizagi Studio will automatically open it, for you to get started automating your processes.
