Cannot access portal after Community Ed Install on MacOS
I installed the latest version of the community edition of Bonita Studio on MacOS.
I can run the application but when I am trying to access the portal the URL http://localhost:8080/bonita/loginservice?username=walter.bates&password... is not found.
Same with http://localhost:8080/bonita/
Safari says that the server cannot be found.
I am not clear if this is an installation problem. I don't understand if the installer includes all the dependencies or if I need to install JRE and Tomcat separately. Or it may be a security issue.
Your help would be welcome.
Bonita Studio installer make sure that a Java Runtime (JRE) is available so you don't need to install it separately (JRE or JDK manual installation is required if you are using the zip packaging of Bonita Studio).
Also Bonita Studio includes a test environment with Tomcat as the application server and h2 for the database management system. No need to have a separated installation for testing purpose.
You should access the Portal embedded in Bonita Studio using the button in the toolbar (or from the "Server" menu). Portal URL might not be http://localhost:8080/bonita/ has port number (8080 in this example) is allocated dynamically.
If clicking on the Portal button does not open Bonita Portal in your web browser can you please share Bonita Studio and Bonita Engine log files? Content of those log files are available from Studio "Help" menu. Thanks.
