Management Console

Overview

Bizagi Management Console is the application used by Bizagi Engine to administer Production or Test environments (to perform maintenance activities such as: following up Scheduled jobs, changing the SMTP Server for notifications, setting execution traces, reviewing connection parameters configured to integrated with external systems, or manage licenses and clustering in your Production environment, amongst others).

Bizagi Management Console is installed with Bizagi Engine in order to manage projects in Production environments, but, is also installed with Bizagi Studio in order to manage projects in Development and Test environments.

Scheduler

This module presents options to manage the Scheduler and its Jobs.

The Scheduler is a service created in each Bizagi project, which will carry out certain jobs such as: sending alarms, triggering timers (activating timed delays), executing Replication, running custom jobs and Asynchronous Activities.

For more information about these options, refer to Manage Scheduled Jobs.

 

Systems

This module presents options to review or reconfigure settings in external systems integrated to the solution.

Within such external systems we find: Data providers for Replication and Virtualization, Interfaces for Web or REST services invocations, and ECM repositories.

 

For more information about these options, refer to External systems administration.

 

Organization

This module presents options to manage the Working Time Schema and User groups, defined in Bizagi Studio in development time.

Working Time Schema: to access this option right-click over the Organization icon and click Working Time Schema. This will display the wizard to manage schedules. All the other features included in Organization can be edited from Bizagi Studio and deployed to production if changes are required.

User groups: In the Management Console Users can be included or excluded from groups by clicking on the Properties option at the top.

If new user groups are needed, or existing ones need to be changed, they have to be created from Bizagi Studio and then deployed.

 

 

Organization

 

Changes in this module in the Production environment will not be persisted in the Development environment. We recommend to perform changes in both environments to keep them synchronized.

 

 

Security

This module presents options to manage the Authentication, Authorization and LDAP configurations.

In the first deployment, the configuration of these options will be taken to Production. Henceforth, they will be in read-only mode in the Development environment.

 

Any authentication and LDAP configuration changes are done separately for each environment after the first deployment.

Any changes required for Authorization options, are going to be performed in the Development environment and then deployed to Production.

 

Servers Management

This module is presented only in a Production environment.

It presents the possibility to use features such as: adding new nodes to a clustered-Production environment, or moving your current Production server.

 

For more information, refer to Servers Management.
