Bonita BPM 7 widget displaying a Bonita document as a PDF


Example of forms to display and update a text process variable

Important recommendations

Generally it is recommended to use business variables instead of process variables.

Known limitation

By default only users with administrator profile are allowed to access process variables. You can change such behavior by customizing Refer to REST API authorization documentation for more information.


File upload and download example

An example that illustrate how to allow user to upload and download a single document or a list of documents.

Process definition includes a reference to a document and to a list of documents (document with option "multiple" enable).

All files will be stored by Bonita BPM Engine in database. Engine also saved the association between the process instance and documents content and version.


This example has been created and built with Bonita BPM 7.1.5 Community edition.

A simple process that display system information about the server where is installed Bonita Engine.


This a short process to show how to use the use of AND and XOR gates, with custom messages to ask tester to see what happens in the Portal's Task list.

XOR Example BPMN 2 diagram


This is a short process to demonstrate how to select the next task in Bonita BPM, depending of choices in a form.

The initiator form (on the pool) has a simple select field, where you choose the next step you want to go. Then, the transitions after the OR gate test the choice, so the next step is the selected task.

In the 3 steps, the forms shows the value selected, that confirm what you did.


This an example of a process with one human task, with some custom javascript in the form. The howto in available on the blog:


The example is about multi-instatiated task in Bonita BPM6. The goal is about create multiple instance of the same activity, how manage different enviroments for each instance, how assign each instance to a different user, how get results form each instance and how put a condition over that multi-instatiated task


This is a set of Talend Open Studio components to interact with Bonita 6.

It uses the bonitasoft API to connect to a bonita server. You can then create or delete users.


This is a small process example you can add to your production Bonita Platform, so users can change their password for the Portal login.


  • Just get the .bos file,
  • Import it and build it with your Studio,
  • Upload it in the Portal administration,
  • Set user rights
  • "Et voilà", your users should see a new application: "Change Password".

It is not always simple to build Bonita BPM from sources. That is why this script is now available. It has been tested on Ubuntu 12.04 and 13.10, with Open JDk 7, and latest available version of Git and Maven. At the beginning, it tests that java, mvn and git are installed.

Around 4 Gb of dependencies will be downloaded (sources, target sources archive, maven, ...). You will need a good Internet connection.

Place this script in a disk partition with more than 15 Gb free space. Of course, you can build Bonita BPM in your /home.


This page contains an example of how to create and run a process using the Bonita BPM Engine in a Maven project. It assumes that you are a Java programmer familiar with using Maven. It shows how to initialize the Bonita platform using a Java program and the Bonita BPM Engine API, and then create and execute processes using the same API.


Many users of v6.x of Bonita BPM complain that there is now a confirmation page between forms of two different human steps. It is because Bonita BPM now handle steps asynchronously.

If this is a problem for you, the good way is to customize the confirmation page. Two steps:


Trello Application Example has been designed to show on the Community blog how to design a connector and handle data you get from it. The blog serie with full details is available here:

A short resume of what you will find in this example:


Bonita Escape is a small application designed to help beginners to discover Bonita BPM Community 6.1.1 in a funny way.

At the end of the application it is possible to Tweet and enter a drawing to win some Bonitasoft goodies. The full description of the application is on Community blog:


Do a divide. Give two numbers, the connector return the quotient and the rest


This library can be used to make easy some development in Bonita BPM 6.

It contains 2 classes:

  • BonitaDBTools: Work with a resultSet (DB connectors output)
  • BonitaURLTools: Generate URLs to access to Bonita Forms.

Don't hesitate to post methods you need in order to add them in a new version.



PDF template "stamper". Takes a PDF template created, for example, in OpenOffice Draw and stamps business data (passed in a 2d array of name/value pairs) onto form fields embedded in the PDF template.

Resulting PDF is written to the location.

This is based on ssabrewulf's "Text to PDF convertor 2" and information found here:

Roadmap: Adding excel,csv support


This Connector allows you to interface with a running installation of ProActive Scheduling (

ProActive Scheduling is a Multi-Platform Job Scheduler allowing the execution of Java or native distributed applications on heterogeneous external resources like Clouds, Grids or Clusters.


This is a group resolver connector to get All the users with an spacific Role in Liferay 6.1. It works using the SOA interface API form Liferay. It ask for the Liferay's host, port and Admin User credentials. Also ask for the Company ID number and, sure, the Role to find for.

It depends on the following jars from Liferay dependencies: activation.jar, axis.jar, commons-discovery.jar, portal-client.jar, portal-service.jar, portlet.jar, saaj-api.jar, saaj-impl.jar and wsdl4j.jar.


This is the a second version from the first one cause its seems to be a little out of the date: Here's a simple demo on how to convert a arbitrary text/variable process to PDF format. Anyone who is new to BOS may find some help through this demo.

The connector its embedded in a process to demonstration / avoid missed dependencies problems.

Note: besides creating the pdf it sends it as an email attachment
