Flowable UI getting started

I am attempting to run the flowable modeler app. I do not see any documentation around on this, so I have been trying to piece together the various forum posts.

Initially found this:


I was able to build it successfully, but noticed it was a shell script to start the idm/modeler. I am in windows so this was not an option.

I then saw this:


Which just suggested using the wars in tomcat. I put the flowable-idm.war and flowable-modeler.war in the webapps directory and started tomcat. When I go to http://localhost:8080/flowable-modeler
I am presented with a login screen. I attempted kermit/kermit, admin/admin, flowable/flowable.

What are the credentials?
Also is there better documentation coming soon for the modeler?


Using the RC1 download package is the easiest way to get started. You can login with admin/test
We are working on better documentation for the final 6.0 release.

Best regards,


Thank you.

I have been fooling around with the modeler and am trying out the call activity.

I create the child element first and name it.
I then create the parent that calls the child.

The image presented on the overall process view page on http://localhost:8080/flowable-modeler/#/processes
shows the parent calling the child element with the ‘+’ on the call activity. However if I click into the parent process visual editor, the call activity just looks like every other task. I am not able to expand it to see the child contents. I would have to back out and look at the child separately.

Is this feature going to come with V6?


Good feature request. Could you raise an issue on Github https://github.com/flowable/flowable-engine ?



where would I get flowable ui modeler war file


Download the 6.3.1 zip bundle from the .org home page (or Github Flowable releases). In there is folder named “wars”.
