BPM Process Spaces in Oracle WebCenter (Patch Set 5)

by Dirk Janssen on April 12, 2012 · 1 comment

With the release of PS5 I decided to install the BPM Suite with the WebCenter Process Spaces. For this I found several blogposts that describe how configure your environment in order to install the Process Spaces within WebCenter Spaces. I mainly used the blog post of Andrejus Baranovski to configure my BPM-Portal environment.

Reading the blog posts I noticed that with each new patch set the necessary configuration changed. While installing the Process Spaces I noticed that with PS5 this was also the case. In this blog posts I will describe on which points I deviated from the previous blog posts in order to install the Process Spaces in PS5.

After I extended my domain with the Oracle BPM Spaces I had to configure WebCenter Content so that it could be used by the BPM Spaces. The blog posts state that you have to enable the Folders_g component, you will notice when configuring WebCenter Config that it is replaced by FrameworkFolders as the preferred foldering solution. However, BPM Spaces does not work with FrameworkFolders and requires Folders_g as the foldering option. In order to activate you have to select the “advanced component manager” link in the introduction text of the component manager page. There you can enable the folders_g component. Please note that it cannot be enabled in combination with FolderFramework, so make sure you disable that component before activating Folders_g. After this step I followed the rest of the instructions and WebCenter Content was integrated in the WebCenter Spaces.

In order to activate the discussion forum in the WebCenter Spaces I had to register the discussion forum in WebCenter. However could not login with my admin user (weblogic) because the discussion forum did not use the embedded LDAP of the WebLogic server. By following the blog post How to configure embedded LDAP for WebCenter Collaboration Server at jWebCenter, I was able to log into the discussion forum with my weblogic user and register it with WebCenter.

After this I had to run the process portal script to configure and import the required actual BPM Spaces. This I did by following the Process Portal configuration instructions from George Maggessy.

After completing the installation and some tweaking in the spaces within WebCenter this is the result.
