Activiti Cloud Quickstart Guide


Welcome to the new Activiti Cloud project. This Quickstart is aimed to let you get up and running with Activiti Cloud BPM in almost no time.

Due to its ultra scalable and modular design, there are several components to download and start. We want to hide this complexity until you are ready for deployment. For testing and proof of concept purposes, this quickstart is more than enough to encourage you to try your own BPMN processes inside Activiti.
For this Quickstart guide to work, you need to have Docker and Git installed in your machine. If not, please begin by downloading and setting it up in your environment.

We recommend to check out the 'develop' branch which is the one that we are currently updating.

Once you have Docker up and running, follow the next steps

  • git clone
  • (Optional) git checkout develop
  • cd activiti-cloud-examples
  • echo ' activiti-cloud-sso-idm' | sudo tee -a /etc/hosts
  • cd docker
  • docker-compose -f infrastructure-docker-compose.yml up -d
  • docker-compose -f application-docker-compose.yml up -d

Now your services will be exposed through the Gateway component at http://localhost:8080/

You can use the Postman Collection to interact with the services that you can find here: v7 REST API.postman_collection.json

After importing this collection to Postman you need to setup your environment
you need to create an enviroment with the following values:

A basic use case:

  • Getting a token from one of the keycloak folder endpoints: getKeycloakToken
  • Starting a process using startProcess or startProcessWithVariables endpoints in rb-my-app folder
  • Checking in query which instances are running through queryProcessInstances
  • Checking events in audit by means of getEvents

If routes are to be checked, it is required to change the endpoint routes in gateways folder to:


To shut everything down run:

docker-compose -f application-docker-compose.yml down

docker-compose -f infrastructure-docker.yml down

Next Steps

Despite the complexity of the previous steps you now have the possibility to write infinitely scalable processes, up to global scale
This is the power of Activiti 7 and Activiti Cloud!
