Project and environment management

The Bizagi Run (Engine) portal is the site where admin users manage all projects and environments created in Bizagi Cloud.

To access Run Portal, go through the Management Portal in the Run option.

 

A project created in Bizagi Cloud corresponds directly to a project developed in Bizagi Studio. A single project can contain two or more environments.

 

All environments of a project must have imported packages from the same Bizagi Studio project.

 

The projects and environment features available are:

Creating and deleting projects

Creating and deleting environments

Importing (deploying) packages to Testing environments, to conduct user-acceptance tests, and to Production environment, for end users to execute and use the final applications. When importing (deploying), take into account all steps mentioned in the Importing a process article. Some additional steps are required when bringing an application live in Bizagi Cloud (whether Test or Production environment). Learn more in From Studio to Cloud.
