Sometimes users have a portal already before they develop a BPM (Business Process Manager) project. So they don't want everyone to log into BPM Process Portal to launch a coach.
Instead they need to be able to start a BPD and launch the coach page in their portal. So they need to invoke REST API interface and some URL to meet the requirement.
Below are some steps to do this:
2. Log in REST API test client and run the interface of 'Exposed Processes' to find out information of your BPD. Please refer to below screen image, you can find the parameters to start the BPD.
3. Run the interface "Start Process" and now your BPD has been started.
4. But you will note REST API can't launch the coach page yet after BPD has been started. You need to log in Process Portal and use Firebug to catch the URL of starting the process. Please refer to below screen image:
5. Now you can invoke this URL in your portal to launch the coach page.
