You have set up your Bonita so it connects to your database server that is located in a private network protected by a firewall.
Everything works fine: you are able to connect to the Bonita portal; you can check your cases, you can execute your tasks; your processes move forward normally.

Looking back on my journey, I took note of few particular points that I hope, will help other beginners to ramp up even faster.
