How to setup flowable docker to look into the subpath

I am using the flowable docker image in my app. Now I am accessing the flowable by, and I wanted to set up the flowable as to lookup at subpath like I am able to set the proxy for redirecting the request from /flowable/ to port no. 4000, but the flowable app still looking at root path and giving 404 errors. Trying to do something like grafana in flowable

Changing these does NOT seem to work


  • server.servlet.context-path

even created at modules/flowable-ui-modeler/flowable-ui-modeler-app/src/main/resources


  • flowable_modeler > path

Tomcat Context Path /opt/tomcat/conf/server.xml

<Host name="localhost"  appBase="webapps" unpackWARs="true" autoDeploy="true">
 <Context path="/workflow/flowable-idm" docBase="flowable-idm.war"/>
 <Context path="/workflow/flowable-modeler" docBase="flowable-modeler.war"/>
 <Context path="/workflow/flowable-admin" docBase="flowable-admin.war"/>
 <Context path="/workflow/flowable-task" docBase="flowable-task.war"/>

BUT I get 404 at login

  • also renamed WAR as workflow#flowable-idm.war and context path works but all internal links fail

Have you tried running Flowable on a context path and proxying to that instead of the root?

It’s working with proxy

ok will try that. Proxy with NGINX was because we needed SSL too
