Is it possible to integrate latest version of Integration Designer (it's 188.8.131.52 at the time of writing of this article) with Business Automation Workflow (BAW) 190x or Business Process Manager 86x on Cloud? (IBM BPMoC or IBM BAWoC)
The answer is yes but you will need to go through the procedure / steps described in this article. By default, if you login to your IBM BAWoC/BPMoC Console and goto Process Center -> Download section you will see a popup that looks similar to this -
If you download (IID part1,part2,part3) and install it you will see that it's IID version 857 and not 180x or 190x.
In order to make IID 857 to work with BPMoC or BAWoC you may follow the steps described in the IBM Infocenter and it should just work.
If you would like to instead integrated your IID 19002 with BPMoC or BAWoC continue on reading.
1) Install IID 18001 using launchpad following regular procedure
2) Upgrade to IID 19002 using the IBM Installation Manager (19002 is a Cumulative Fix for IID 18001 and can be downloaded from IBM FixCentral)
- Open your web browser and go to https://www.bpm.ibmcloud.com/
- Click on a lock that is on the left hand-side of URL you entered, click View Certificate / Certificate -
- On the Certificate window, click the Details tab, then Copy to File, and copy the certificate to IIDInstall\jdk\jre\bin, where IIDInstall is the directory where you installed Integration Designer in
- In the wizard, click Next, accept the default values, and then click Next again.
- Enter a file name for the security certificate, for example, iid_cert.cer, click Next, and then Finish.
- Now we need to add the SSL certificate for the download server to the Integration Designer keystore
- On the command line, switch to the Integration Designer installation directory (IIDInstall\jdk\jre\bin) and run the keytool command:
keytool.exe -import -v -file iid_cert.cer -keystore ..\lib\security\cacertsEnter the keystore password: changeit (changeit is the default password).
Enter y at the prompt to trust the certificate.
5) Modify eclipse.ini file that should be under "IIDInstall" directory and add/append the following lines to the end of the file -
6) Start IID 19002, goto Help > Install New Software.
- In the Install window, click Add, and enter the following information for the fields in the Edit Site window:
Name: IBM BPM on Cloud Authorization Feature
- Select it from dropdown and install this plugin (there would be warnings that it's not trusted, click on OK and proceed to the Finish)
7) You should now be able to click on Window and select "Switch to Workflow Center". Provide your BPM cloud URL similar to -
Click on Login and login to your Cloud account like you would do if you were using regular browser.
NOTE: In case you're getting an error when entering the BPMoC/BAWoC URL and clicking on Login then you might need to perform the following extra steps (it might be required or not required depending on your version of Windows and security settings / domain policy you might have) -
- Import BPMoC/BAWoC certificate into IID 19002 truststore that is located under -
- Import command should be executed from command line from "IIDInstall/jdk/jre/bin"
keytool.exe -import -v -file iid_cert.cer -keystore ..\..\runtimes\base_stub\etc\trust.p12 -storetype PKCS12 -storepass WebAS
- Run above command and restart IID - you should now be able to Login to BPMoC / BAWoC successfully
Kudos to IBM BPM / BAW Support team, it was a combined effort from BP3 and IBM to get to the bottom of this integration and get it resolved for our customer.
