Importing and running an application

Overview

Importing an application to Bizagi Cloud enables a solution to be executed in a web browser. Whether it is imported to a test environment or a production environment, the process is the same. Nevertheless, a previously created project and environment is mandatory as every solution will run within an environment. Follow these steps to import an application:

 

Export an application from Bizagi Studio.

Import the exported application to a project in the Cloud.

Run the imported application in Bizagi Cloud

 

Exporting an application from Bizagi Studio

When exporting, please bear in mind that this is considered a deployment. The result of deploying an application from Bizagi Studio is a .bex file. It is a compressed ready-to-execute version of your application and includes all of the required configurations and metadata. A thorough guide to the configurations needed when exporting the application from Bizagi Studio can be found in the Preparing a solution to be exported and Exporting a process article.

Please keep in mind that Oracle projects are not supported for Bizagi Cloud.

 

Importing to the Cloud

After opening the .bex file, open your account in the Management Portal. Make sure you have a subscription and enough permissions to import an application into Bizagi Cloud.

 

Open the Management Portal using the following URL:
<companyname>.bizagi.com/manage
Replace <companyname> with the name given by your enterprise to Bizagi Cloud. You then be prompted for your Bizagi.com credentials.

 

If you are a Bizagi Cloud Trial User, open the Management portal from run.bizagi.com using your bizagi.com credentials.

Please bear in mind that the credentials you use in Bizagi.com can be replaced by signing in with Microsoft credentials or Google credentials.

 

Once signed in, select the subscription you want to work with and locate the project where you want to upload your designed solution.

 

In case you have not created a project, follow the steps to create a new project in Bizagi Cloud.

Within the project locate the environment to be used.

If you are an Enterprise customer, every new environment must be requested through previous commercial negotiation. To request an environment please contact us with the details of your request.

If you are a Personal customer, every new environment to be created will be a Test environment.

For further detail on how to create an environment please review the Environment management article.

 

Click the Import process icon to load the generated package from Bizagi Studio.

note_pin

Cloud projects are designed to contain only one Bizagi Studio application. This means that once a Studio project is uploaded to the cloud, the cloud project where it is published (regardless of the selected environment) is now saved to other versions of the Bizagi Studio project. No merging is allowed, either in the same, or different environments of the same cloud project.

 

Select the file to upload. The name given to the file will have no impact on the uploaded solution.

Once the uploading process has started, Bizagi Cloud will deploy the solution in the Cloud.

Running an application in Bizagi Cloud

Once the project is ready to be executed, a ready tag will be displayed in the environment. Click the run button to launch the work portal in another window. The displayed URL of the work portal will change according to the executed environment.

For Enterprise users, the executed Work Portal URL will start with your company name, followed by Bizagi.com. For example.

<companyname>.bizagi.com/<projectname>
Replace <companyname> with the name given by your enterprise to Bizagi Cloud and replace <projectname> with the name of your project.

You then be prompted for your credentials of your Bizagi application.

 

For Personal users, the executed Work Portal URL will always start with a random string, followed by Bizagi.com.
