Configuring Process Portal for a federated environment
You can run Process Portal in both single business process management systems or in federated environments based on Process Federation Server. For federated environments, you need to configure certain aspects of the environment for Process Portal to work correctly. No additional configuration is required for a single system.
Before you begin
About this task
For Process Portal to work correctly in a federated environment, you must configure endpoint URLs on the server that hosts Process Portal. You must also configure a list of allowed origins for cross-domain requests between Process Portal and Process Federation Server and between Process Portal and the federated servers. If you are running BPEL processes on Process Portal, additional requirements apply to the allowed origins.
In federated environments, the Process Portal content is automatically refreshed every 60 seconds. To change the refresh interval, update the value of the com.ibm.bpm.portal.federatedRefreshInterval mashups property. For more information, see Configuring mashups custom properties for Process Portal.
What to do next
- Set up single sign-on for the server that hosts Process Portal. For more information, see Configuring SSO for federated environments by using LTPA keys.
- Set up secure communications between Process Portal and Process Federation Server. For more information, see Securing SSL communications between client applications and Process Federation Server.
