The BPM mobile iOS app works with the IBM Business Process Manager and IBM Blueworks Live products and allows users to launch and complete BPM tasks and Blueworks Live Automated Processes via an iOS device. Note you must have a Business Process Manager server or an account on IBM's Blueworks Live in order to use this app.
This app supports both the Business Process Manager and Blueworks Live products. IBM BPM is traditionally an on premise server (although there are BPM cloud options available as well) and is focused on process execution. Blueworks Live is IBM's SaaS BPM offering that includes the ability to automate simple checklist and approval tasks. These are called Automated Processes in Blueworks Live. Blueworks Live also provides process discovery, documentation, and analysis capabilities and is typically what people associate with Blueworks Live. This BPM iOS app does not integrate with the process discovery features in Blueworks Live, only the process automation features.
If you are interested in using the BPM iOS app and do not yet have access to a BPM server or IBM Blueworks Live, then the first step is to get access to one of the other of these product. You can go to www.blueworkslive.com and sign up for a free Blueworks Live trial account, or contact your IBM BPM administrator (or IBM sales rep if you don't yet own IBM BPM) to get access to your BPM server.
Once you have an IBM BPM or IBM Blueworks Live account you can launch the app and log in.
At the initial setup screen you are presented with options to setup either Blueworks Live or Business Process Manager accounts.
Business Process Manager accounts require a BPM 7.5.x or later server. Here are the fields you will need to fill out if you choose this option:
Host: <this is the URL to your BPM server - it's the same base URL that you would use to login to the BPM Portal - without the /portal part>
Port: <this is the port that your BPM server is running on>
Account Name: <this is a friendly name that you can use to identify the server for the next time you log into the app. You can pick anything you want for this, but logically it should describe the account that you are using. i.e. You might use "BPM Dev Admin" for an admin user on your dev server. This field is especially useful if you will be connecting to multiple BPM servers. i.e. dev, test, production>
User Name: <This is the user name that will be used to login to the BPM server. It's the same user you would use to login to the BPM Portal.>
Password: <This is the password that goes with the user name. i.e It's the password that you would use to login to the BPM Portal.>
To setup a Blueworks Live account, you should tap the Blueworks Live button on the initial setup screen. This will only give you options for an Email and Password which should match the email and password you use to login to Blueworks Live.
After the initial setup you can always add additional accounts or modify your current settings by going to the Accounts option at the bottom of the screen.
In order to make use of the app, you will need to have BPM or Blueworks Live automated tasks assigned to you or you will need access to launch BPD instances in BPM or automated processes in Blueworks Live. Refer to the help screens built into the BPM iOS app for more information on using that app.
