How to synchronize my own users with flowable-UI-applications

Hi, I have my own database of all the users, how can I add or synchronize all these users with flowable-UI applications, so that in modeler I can assign the task to my own users.

I have tried to use flowable-task rest api to add users http://localhost:8080/flowable-task/process-api/identity/users, it does not work.

I can send flowable-rest rest api http://localhost:8080/flowable-rest/service/identity/users, but the modeler cannot get the users because flowable-modeler and flowable-rest are separated.

I don’t want to add user one by one by hand in flowable-idm application.

The only way I can think is adding users to flowable-rest, and I modify the code in flowable-modeler somehow to retrieve users from flowable-rest.

Any good suggestions?


Either you synchronize your users in bulk using the rest api of flowable-rest, in this case you do need to point flowable-rest to the same database as the modeler.

Alternatively, you can chose to not synchronize, but to go directly against your user store. The ldap implementation ( can be used as inspiration.

Thanks for your reply.


I have the same problem. Were you able to make this work using LDAP integration as an inspiration? If so, can you please share your results?
