Creating living application with Bonita Community


Hello, Guys!
I'm new to Bonita and I'm trying to create a process for request approvals. I'm currently using BonitaBPMCommunity-7.5.4. I installed it with the default database (h2 and tomcat). I have a portal and a studio to develop my processes. After I created my process diagram, I created and my BDM. For each human task I have created a form where users fill out and read data. Also I have created and one application page, which contains a url that redirects to my initiation form and start my process. In the portal I manually created an application and import my app page (exported from the UI Designer). When I click on the link of my application it opens my app page and when i click on the url the process starts, but it opens up in the Bonita Portal. Is there a way the Portal to be invisible for the end user. I mean my process to execute from the pages and look like a web site. Do you have any ideas how I can do that? Should I change all of the forms with pages?
I would really appreciate your help!
Best regards,
Albena Mincheva.

On your instantiation form (the form that let you start the process) you can configure the button to load a specific URL when the call to start the process is successful. So if you set this URL with the URL of a page of your application your user will not see the Portal.

Hi, Dear!
Thanks for the tip, but I still can't figure it out. I have the following process. The instantiation form is opening in the application and the user is asked if he want to start the process, after that I have a human task with a form at which the user have to pick a role in the process, and it is also opening in the application, the problem comes when it hits the second human task. It redirects me to the portal. Can you give me an example for the url? Should I make the forms for my human task to be not Forms, but Application Pages?
The interest thing is that I tried to use the custom widget redirectToNextTask ( and it still doesn't work for me.
I will really appreciate your help!
Best regards,

Maybe you can share your diagram so I can take a look?

Note that the redirectToNextTask widget only work when form is display in the Portal (I still need to do more test to fully confirm that but I'm pretty sure).
