How do i add a form to a start event?

Dear BonitaSoft Comminuty,

I want to create a process that starts with a user who inserts information into a form. I have seen an example business process where the start event contains a form. When the process is started at the start event, the form shows up in Bonita Portal and the user can insert data. My questions is: How do i create a form for the start event? I only know how to create a form for a user task. Can anybody please help me?

My Bonita BPM Community version is 6.3.7.

Kind regards, Pascal Petruch

Get form with REST API


Is it possible to retrieve form (created with the studio) with REST API in order to show them into an other page.

In the documentation, I saw that we can show a page we previously add to the portal but nothing about forms.

Did you implement anything about this since 6.x ?

Cause it seems like it was impossible to do this with 5.9 :

Remove a form validation on running process

Hi everyone. :)

I'm in such a trouble. I have a process here at my company running on the Bonita Portal. It is in operation mode. However, I stepped into a problem: There is a user that can't load the form for his task. Actually, no one can because it's a validation problem on the form. I'd like to take that validation out, so he could be able to load the form on the screen. But the process is in the portal. And I can't just kill that process and substitute it for another.

So, any help is very much welcome.

Thanks in advance.
