I’m trying to create a flowable app and use the same authentication used in flowable. My application is in another WAR file. How can I connect them in order to use the same login page and users that I use in flowable? How can I use the flowable authentication from an external application?
Can you explain a bit more what you’re trying to accomplish?
Do you (just) want to include the Flowable engine(s) in your own web app? Do you want to expose the Flowable REST APIs in your app?
Or do you want to communicate to the Flowable REST APIs via the Flowable REST or Flowable TASK UI apps from your webapp?
I already can use the Flowable REST API from my app. I created my own UI and I am using it with the flowable task but I can access my own app without authentication. And I want to access my app only with authentication, so how can I accomplish this?
In that case you can do it in the way it was done for example in the Flowable TASK UI app.
Like I mentioned in my first reply. But if these are resources in your own app you should create and adapt the security configuration in your own app.
The first class linked there (SecurityConfiguration) contains the security mappings for resources.
But this is plain Spring Security. Their docs provide more detailled info on this subject.
