How to deploy a workflow in Activiti 7?

I want to deploy a BPMN workflow in an Activiti 7 cloud service. In an Activiti 6 server, I can do this by its REST API: 

POST repository/deployments
But in Activiti 7 I cannot find this API. Where can I find the deployment APIs? How can I deploy the workflow with or without the REST API?

Hi Sanjay,

I read the article but did not find how to deploy the workflow by the REST API.

I saw how to deploy the engine and how to get the predefined process definitions by the REST API, but no workflow deployment. Did I miss anything?

And I saw the CI/CD demo video in the activiti.org and another Deep Dive Series. Both of them rebuild and redeploy the runtime engine every time they create a new workflow. That is not what I want.

 

Thanks,

Hi chsun,

That's exactly what I need to do in Activiti 6, which is to deploy dynamically new XML workflows without redeploying the whole runtime engine could you please tell me how did you manage to do it? 

Thanks,

Hi @chsun 

I don't there's any rest api to deploy the model again, with activiti-7 you'll have to deploy it by restarting your server. but there are apis to connect with the runtime bundle, you can see the model deployed but you cannot modify it. source

Hope that helps.

I see. I am curious why the api was removed from activiti 7.

Hi @abbask01 ,

Thanks for the respond, that's exactly what I've done from Spring Boot but I always get error 403 forbidden. So I really don't understand why is this operation not allowed, do you have any explanation about this ? 

Cordially,
