Red Hat Process Automation Manager 7.5

Red Hat Customer Content Services

Abstract

This document describes how to deploy a Red Hat Process Automation Manager 7.5 freeform managed server environment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

Preface

As a system engineer, you can deploy a Red Hat Process Automation Manager freeform managed server environment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform to provide an infrastructure to execute services, process applications, and other business assets. You can deploy any number of managed Process Servers and control them using the same Business Central Monitoring. You can add and remove the Process Servers as necessary; Business Central Monitoring establishes a connection to them automatically. You can also use the same Business Central Monitoring instance to monitor immutable Process Servers.

Prerequisites

  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform version 3.11 is deployed.
  • At least four gigabytes of memory are available in the OpenShift cluster/namespace.
  • The OpenShift project for the deployment has been created.
  • You are logged in to the project using the oc command. For more information about the oc command-line tool, see the OpenShift Container Platform CLI Reference. If you want to use the OpenShift Web console to deploy templates, you must also be logged on using the Web console.
  • Dynamic persistent volume (PV) provisioning is enabled. Alternatively, if dynamic PV provisioning is not enabled, enough persistent volumes must be available. By default, the following sizes are required:

    • Business Central Monitoring requires a 64Mi PV.
    • Each Process Server deployment by default requires one 1Gi PV for the database. You can change the database PV size in the template parameters. If you deploy multiple separate Process Servers, each of the servers requires a separate database PV. This requirement does not apply if you use an external database server.
  • Your OpenShift environment supports persistent volumes with ReadWriteMany mode. For information about access mode support in OpenShift Online volume plug-ins, see Access Modes.

    Important

    ReadWriteMany mode is not supported on OpenShift Online and OpenShift Dedicated.

Note

Since Red Hat Process Automation Manager version 7.5, support for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.x is deprecated, including installation using all templates and using the Automation Broker (Ansible Playbook). New features might not be added, and this functionality will be removed in a future release.

Chapter 1. Overview of Red Hat Process Automation Manager on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform

You can deploy Red Hat Process Automation Manager into a Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform environment.

In this solution, components of Red Hat Process Automation Manager are deployed as separate OpenShift pods. You can scale each of the pods up and down individually to provide as few or as many containers as required for a particular component. You can use standard OpenShift methods to manage the pods and balance the load.

The following key components of Red Hat Process Automation Manager are available on OpenShift:

  • Process Server, also known as Execution Server or KIE Server, is the infrastructure element that runs decision services, process applications, and other deployable assets (collectively referred to as services) . All logic of the services runs on execution servers.

    A database server is normally required for Process Server. You can provide a database server in another OpenShift pod or configure an execution server on OpenShift to use any other database server. Alternatively, Process Server can use an H2 database; in this case, you cannot scale the pod.

    You can scale up a Process Server pod to provide as many copies as required, running on the same host or different hosts. As you scale a pod up or down, all of its copies use the same database server and run the same services. OpenShift provides load balancing and a request can be handled by any of the pods.

    You can deploy a separate Process Server pod to run a different group of services. That pod can also be scaled up or down. You can have as many separate replicated Process Server pods as required.

  • Business Central is a web-based interactive environment used for authoring services. It also provides a management and monitoring console. You can use Business Central to develop services and deploy them to Process Servers. You can also use Business Central to monitor the execution of processes.

    Business Central is a centralized application. However, you can configure it for high availability, where multiple pods run and share the same data.

    Business Central includes a Git repository that holds the source for the services that you develop on it. It also includes a built-in Maven repository. Depending on configuration, Business Central can place the compiled services (KJAR files) into the built-in Maven repository or (if configured) into an external Maven repository.

    Important

    In the current version, high-availability Business Central functionality is for Technology Preview only. For more information on Red Hat Technology Preview features, see Technology Preview Features Scope.

  • Business Central Monitoring is a web-based management and monitoring console. It can manage the deployment of services to Process Servers and provide monitoring information, but does not include authoring capabilities. You can use this component to manage staging and production environments.
  • Smart Router is an optional layer between Process Servers and other components that interact with them. When your environment includes many services running on different Process Servers, Smart Router provides a single endpoint to all client applications. A client application can make a REST API call that requires any service. Smart Router automatically calls the Process Server that can process a particular request.

You can arrange these and other components into various environment configurations within OpenShift.

The following environment types are typical:

  • Authoring: An environment for creating and modifying services using Business Central. It consists of pods that provide Business Central for the authoring work and a Process Server for test execution of the services. For instructions about deploying this environment, see Deploying a Red Hat Process Automation Manager authoring environment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
  • Managed deployment: An environment for running existing services for staging and production purposes. This environment includes several groups of Process Server pods; you can deploy and undeploy services on every such group and also scale the group up or down as necessary. Use Business Central Monitoring to deploy, run, and stop the services and to monitor their execution.

    You can deploy two types of managed environment. In a freeform server environment, you initially deploy Business Central Monitoring and one Process Server. You can additionally deploy any number of Process Servers. Business Central Monitoring can connects to all servers in the same namespace. For instructions about deploying this environment, see Deploying a Red Hat Process Automation Manager freeform managed server environment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

    Alternatively, you can deploy a fixed managed server environment. A single deployment includes Business Central Monitoring, Smart Router, and a preset number of Process Servers (by default, two servers, but you can modify the template to change the number). You cannot easily add or remove servers at a later time. For instructions about deploying this environment, see Deploying a Red Hat Process Automation Manager fixed managed server environment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

  • Deployment with immutable servers: An alternate environment for running existing services for staging and production purposes. In this environment, when you deploy a Process Server pod, it builds an image that loads and starts a service or group of services. You cannot stop any service on the pod or add any new service to the pod. If you want to use another version of a service or modify the configuration in any other way, you deploy a new server image and displace the old one. In this system, the Process Server runs like any other pod on the OpenShift environment; you can use any container-based integration workflows and do not need to use any other tools to manage the pods. Optionally, you can use Business Central Monitoring to monitor the performance of the environment and to stop and restart some of the service instances, but not to deploy additional services to any Process Server or undeploy any existing ones (you cannot add or remove containers). For instructions about deploying this environment, see Deploying a Red Hat Process Automation Manager immutable server environment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

You can also deploy a trial or evaluation environment. This environment includes Business Central and a Process Server. You can set it up quickly and use it to evaluate or demonstrate developing and running assets. However, the environment does not use any persistent storage, and any work you do in the environment is not saved. For instructions about deploying this environment, see Deploying a Red Hat Process Automation Manager trial environment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

To deploy a Red Hat Process Automation Manager environment on OpenShift, you can use the templates that are provided with Red Hat Process Automation Manager. You can modify the templates to ensure that the configuration suits your environment.

Chapter 2. Preparing to deploy Red Hat Process Automation Manager in your OpenShift environment

Before deploying Red Hat Process Automation Manager in your OpenShift environment, you must complete several tasks. You do not need to repeat these tasks if you want to deploy additional images, for example, for new versions of processes or for other processes.

2.1. Ensuring the availability of image streams and the image registry

To deploy Red Hat Process Automation Manager components on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, you must ensure that OpenShift can download the correct images from the Red Hat registry. To download the images, OpenShift requires image streams, which contain the information about the location of images. OpenShift also must be configured to authenticate with the Red Hat registry using your service account user name and password.

Some versions of the OpenShift environment include the required image streams. You must check if they are available. If image streams are available in OpenShift by default, you can use them if the OpenShift infrastructure is configured for registry authentication server. The administrator must complete the registry authentication configuration when installing the OpenShift environment.

Otherwise, you can configure registry authentication in your own project and install the image streams in that project.

Procedure

  1. Determine whether Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is configured with the user name and password for Red Hat registry access. For details about the required configuration, see Configuring a Registry Location. If you are using an OpenShift Online subscription, it is configured for Red Hat registry access.
  2. If Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is configured with the user name and password for Red Hat registry access, enter the following commands:

    $ oc get imagestreamtag -n openshift | grep rhpam-businesscentral | grep 7.5
    $ oc get imagestreamtag -n openshift | grep rhpam-kieserver | grep 7.5

    If the outputs of both commands are not empty, the required image streams are available in the openshift namespace and no further action is required.

  3. If the output of one or both of the commands is empty or if OpenShift is not configured with the user name and password for Red Hat registry access, complete the following steps:

    1. Ensure you are logged in to OpenShift with the oc command and that your project is active.
    2. Complete the steps documented in Registry Service Accounts for Shared Environments. You must log in to the Red Hat Customer Portal to access the document and to complete the steps to create a registry service account.
    3. Select the OpenShift Secret tab and click the link under Download secret to download the YAML secret file.
    4. View the downloaded file and note the name that is listed in the name: entry.
    5. Enter the following commands:

      oc create -f <file_name>.yaml
      oc secrets link default <secret_name> --for=pull
      oc secrets link builder <secret_name> --for=pull

      Replace <file_name> with the name of the downloaded file and <secret_name> with the name that is listed in the name: entry of the file.

    6. Download the rhpam-7.5.1-openshift-templates.zip product deliverable file from the Software Downloads page and extract the rhpam75-image-streams.yaml file.
    7. Enter the following command:

      $ oc apply -f rhpam75-image-streams.yaml
      Note

      If you complete these steps, you install the image streams into the namespace of your project. In this case, when you deploy the templates, you must set the IMAGE_STREAM_NAMESPACE parameter to the name of this project.

2.2. Creating the secrets for Process Server

OpenShift uses objects called secrets to hold sensitive information such as passwords or keystores. For more information about OpenShift secrets, see the Secrets chapter in the OpenShift documentation.

You must create an SSL certificate for HTTP access to Process Server and provide it to your OpenShift environment as a secret.

Procedure

  1. Generate an SSL keystore with a private and public key for SSL encryption for Process Server. For more information on how to create a keystore with self-signed or purchased SSL certificates, see Generate a SSL Encryption Key and Certificate.

    Note

    In a production environment, generate a valid signed certificate that matches the expected URL for Process Server.

  2. Save the keystore in a file named keystore.jks.
  3. Record the name of the certificate. The default value for this name in Red Hat Process Automation Manager configuration is jboss.
  4. Record the password of the keystore file. The default value for this name in Red Hat Process Automation Manager configuration is mykeystorepass.
  5. Use the oc command to generate a secret named kieserver-app-secret from the new keystore file:

    $ oc create secret generic kieserver-app-secret --from-file=keystore.jks

2.3. Creating the secrets for Business Central

You must create an SSL certificate for HTTP access to Business Central and provide it to your OpenShift environment as a secret.

Do not use the same certificate and keystore for Business Central and Process Server.

Procedure

  1. Generate an SSL keystore with a private and public key for SSL encryption for Process Server. For more information on how to create a keystore with self-signed or purchased SSL certificates, see Generate a SSL Encryption Key and Certificate.

    Note

    In a production environment, generate a valid signed certificate that matches the expected URL for Business Central.

  2. Save the keystore in a file named keystore.jks.
  3. Record the name of the certificate. The default value for this name in Red Hat Process Automation Manager configuration is jboss.
  4. Record the password of the keystore file. The default value for this name in Red Hat Process Automation Manager configuration is mykeystorepass.
  5. Use the oc command to generate a secret named businesscentral-app-secret from the new keystore file:

    $ oc create secret generic businesscentral-app-secret --from-file=keystore.jks

2.4. Building a custom Process Server extension image for an external database

If you want to use an external database server for a Process Server and the database server is not a MySQL or PostgreSQL server, you must build a custom Process Server extension image with drivers for this server before deploying your environment.

Complete the steps in this build procedure to provide drivers for any of the following database servers:

  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • MariaDB
  • IBM DB2
  • Oracle Database
  • Sybase

For the supported versions of the database servers, see Red Hat Process Automation Manager 7 Supported Configurations.

The build procedure creates a custom extension image that extends the existing Process Server image. You must import this custom extension image into your OpenShift environment and then reference it in the EXTENSION_IMAGE parameter.

Prerequisites

  • You are logged in to your OpenShift environment using the oc command. Your OpenShift user must have the registry-editor role.
  • For Oracle Database or Sybase, you downloaded the JDBC driver from the database server vendor.
  • You have installed the following required software:

    • Docker
    • Cekit version 3
    • The following libraries and extensions for Cekit:

      • odcs-client, provided by the python3-odcs-client package or similar package
      • docker, provided by the python3-docker package or similar package
      • docker-squash, provided by the python3-docker-squash package or similar package
      • behave, provided by the python3-behave package or similar package
      • s2i, provided by the source-to-image package or similar package

Procedure

  1. For IBM DB2, Oracle Database, or Sybase, provide the JDBC driver JAR file in a local directory.
  2. Download the rhpam-7.5.1-openshift-templates.zip product deliverable file from the Software Downloads page of the Red Hat Customer Portal.
  3. Unzip the file and, using the command line, change to the templates/contrib/jdbc directory of the unzipped file. This directory contains the source code for the custom build.
  4. Run one of the following commands, depending on the database server type:

    • For Microsoft SQL Server:

      make build mssql
    • For MariaDB:

      make build mariadb
    • For IBM DB2:

      make build db2
    • For Oracle Database:

      make build oracle artifact=/tmp/ojdbc7.jar version=7.0

      In this command, replace /tmp/ojdbc7.jar with the path name of the downloaded Oracle Database driver and 7.0 with the version of the driver.

    • For Sybase:

      make build sybase artifact=/tmp/jconn4-16.0_PL05.jar version=16.0_PL05

      In this command, replace /tmp/jconn4-16.0_PL05.jar with the path name of the downloaded Sybase driver and 16.0_PL05 with the version of the driver.

  5. Run the following command to list the Docker images that are available locally:

    docker images

    Note the name of the image that was built, for example, jboss-kie-db2-extension-openshift-image, and the version tag of the image, for example, 11.1.4.4 (not the latest tag).

  6. Access the registry of your OpenShift environment directly and push the image to the registry. Depending on your user permissions, you can push the image into the openshift namespace or into a project namespace. For instructions about accessing the registry and pushing the images, see Accessing the Registry Directly.
  7. When configuring your Process Server deployment with a template that supports an external database server, set the following parameters:

    • Drivers Extension Image (EXTENSIONS_IMAGE): The ImageStreamTag definition of the extension image, for example, jboss-kie-db2-extension-openshift-image:11.1.4.4
    • Drivers ImageStream Namespace (EXTENSIONS_IMAGE_NAMESPACE): The namespace to which you uploaded the extension image, for example, openshift or your project namespace.

2.5. Preparing a Maven mirror repository for offline use

If your Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform environment does not have outgoing access to the public Internet, you must prepare a Maven repository with a mirror of all the necessary artifacts and make this repository available to your environment.

Note

You do not need to complete this procedure if your Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform environment is connected to the Internet.

Prerequisites

  • A computer that has outgoing access to the public Internet is available.

Procedure

  1. Prepare a Maven release repository to which you can write. The repository must allow read access without authentication. Your OpenShift environment must have access to this repository. You can deploy a Nexus repository manager in the OpenShift environment. For instructions about setting up Nexus on OpenShift, see Setting up Nexus. Use this repository as a separate mirror repository.

    Alternatively, if you use a custom external repository (for example, Nexus) for your services, you can use the same repository as a mirror repository.

  2. On the computer that has an outgoing connection to the public Internet, complete the following steps:

    1. Download the latest version of the Offliner tool.
    2. Download the rhpam-7.5.1-offliner.txt product deliverable file from the Software Downloads page of the Red Hat Customer Portal.
    3. Enter the following command to use the Offliner tool to download the required artifacts:

      java -jar offliner-<version>.jar -r https://maven.repository.redhat.com/ga/ -r https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/ -d /home/user/temp rhpam-7.5.1-offliner.txt

      Replace /home/user/temp with an empty temporary directory and <version> with the version of the Offliner tool that you downloaded. The download can take a significant amount of time.

    4. Upload all artifacts from the temporary directory to the Maven mirror repository that you prepared. You can use the Maven Repository Provisioner utility to upload the artifacts.
  3. If you developed services outside Business Central and they have additional dependencies, add the dependencies to the mirror repository. If you developed the services as Maven projects, you can use the following steps to prepare these dependencies automatically. Complete the steps on the computer that has an outgoing connection to the public Internet.

    1. Create a backup of the local Maven cache directory (~/.m2/repository) and then clear the directory.
    2. Build the source of your projects using the mvn clean install command.
    3. For every project, enter the following command to ensure that Maven downloads all runtime dependencies for all the artifacts generated by the project:

      mvn -e -DskipTests dependency:go-offline -f /path/to/project/pom.xml --batch-mode -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

      Replace /path/to/project/pom.xml with the correct path to the pom.xml file of the project.

    4. Upload all artifacts from the local Maven cache directory (~/.m2/repository) to the Maven mirror repository that you prepared. You can use the Maven Repository Provisioner utility to upload the artifacts.

Chapter 3. Freeform managed server environment

You can deploy a freeform server environment that includes several different pods running Process Server. These Process Servers can run different services for staging or production purposes. You can add and remove servers as necessary at any time.

You start deploying a freeform managed server environment by deploying Business Central Monitoring and one managed Process Server. You can use Business Central Monitoring to monitor and, when necessary, manage the execution of services on Process Servers. This environment does not include Smart Router.

You can also deploy additional managed Process Servers. Each Process Server can be separately scaled as necessary.

On a managed Process Server, no services are initially loaded. Use Business Central Monitoring or the REST API of the Process Server to deploy and undeploy processes on the server.

You must provide a Maven repository with the processes (KJAR files) that you want to deploy on the servers. Your integration process must ensure that the required versions of the processes are uploaded to the Maven repository. You can use Business Central in a development environment to create the processes and upload them to the Maven repository.

Each Process Server uses a database server. Usually, the database servers also run in pods, although you can set up a Process Server to use an external database server.

You can also deploy immutable Process Servers in the same namespace. You can use Business Central Monitoring to view monitoring information for all Process Servers in the environment, including immutable servers. For instructions about deploying immutable Process Servers, see Deploying a Red Hat Process Automation Manager immutable server environment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

3.1. Deploying monitoring and a single Process Server for a freeform environment

To start deploying a freeform environment, deploy Business Central Monitoring and a single managed Process Server, which uses a PostgreSQL database server in a pod. No services are loaded on the Process Server. Use Business Central Monitoring to deploy and undeploy services on the server.

You can then add more Process Servers as necessary.

3.1.1. Starting configuration of the template for monitoring and a single Process Server

To deploy Business Central Monitoring and a single managed Process Server, use the rhpam75-managed.yaml template file.

Procedure

  1. Download the rhpam-7.5.1-openshift-templates.zip product deliverable file from the Software Downloads page of the Red Hat Customer Portal.
  2. Extract the rhpam75-managed.yaml template file.
  3. Use one of the following methods to start deploying the template:

    • To use the OpenShift Web UI, in the OpenShift application console select Add to Project → Import YAML / JSON and then select or paste the rhpam75-managed.yaml file. In the Add Template window, ensure Process the template is selected and click Continue.
    • To use the OpenShift command line console, prepare the following command line:

      oc new-app -f <template-path>/rhpam75-managed.yaml -p BUSINESS_CENTRAL_HTTPS_SECRET=businesscentral-app-secret -p KIE_SERVER_HTTPS_SECRET=kieserver-app-secret -p PARAMETER=value

      In this command line, make the following changes:

      • Replace <template-path> with the path to the downloaded template file.
      • Use as many -p PARAMETER=value pairs as needed to set the required parameters.

Next steps

Set the parameters for the template. Follow the steps in Section 3.1.2, “Setting required parameters for monitoring and a single Process Server” to set common parameters. You can view the template file to see descriptions for all parameters.

3.1.2. Setting required parameters for monitoring and a single Process Server

When configuring the template to deploy Business Central Monitoring and a single managed Process Server, you must set the following parameters in all cases.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Set the following parameters:

    • Business Central Monitoring Server Keystore Secret Name (BUSINESS_CENTRAL_HTTPS_SECRET): The name of the secret for Business Central, as created in Section 2.3, “Creating the secrets for Business Central”.
    • KIE Server Keystore Secret Name (KIE_SERVER_HTTPS_SECRET): The name of the secret for Process Server, as created in Section 2.2, “Creating the secrets for Process Server”.
    • Business Central Monitoring Server Certificate Name (BUSINESS_CENTRAL_HTTPS_NAME): The name of the certificate in the keystore that you created in Section 2.3, “Creating the secrets for Business Central”.
    • Business Central Monitoring Server Keystore Password (BUSINESS_CENTRAL_HTTPS_PASSWORD): The password for the keystore that you created in Section 2.3, “Creating the secrets for Business Central”.
    • KIE Server Certificate Name (KIE_SERVER_HTTPS_NAME): The name of the certificate in the keystore that you created in Section 2.2, “Creating the secrets for Process Server”.
    • KIE Server Keystore Password (KIE_SERVER_HTTPS_PASSWORD): The password for the keystore that you created in Section 2.2, “Creating the secrets for Process Server”.
    • Application Name (APPLICATION_NAME): The name of the OpenShift application. It is used in the default URLs for Business Central Monitoring and Process Server. OpenShift uses the application name to create a separate set of deployment configurations, services, routes, labels, and artifacts.
    • Enable KIE server global discovery (KIE_SERVER_CONTROLLER_OPENSHIFT_GLOBAL_DISCOVERY_ENABLED): Set this parameter to true if you want Business Central Monitoring to discover all Process Servers with the OpenShiftStartupStrategy in the same namespace. By default, Business Central Monitoring discovers only Process Servers that are deployed with the same value of the APPLICATION_NAME parameter as Business Central Monitoring itself.
    • Maven repository URL (MAVEN_REPO_URL): A URL for a Maven repository. You must upload all the processes (KJAR files) that are to be deployed on any Process Servers in your environment into this repository.
    • Maven repository ID (MAVEN_REPO_ID): An identifier for the Maven repository. The default value is repo-custom.
    • Maven repository username (MAVEN_REPO_USERNAME): The username for the Maven repository.
    • Maven repository password (MAVEN_REPO_PASSWORD): The password for the Maven repository.
    • KIE Server Mode (KIE_SERVER_MODE): In the rhpam75-managed.yaml template the default value is PRODUCTION. In PRODUCTION mode, you cannot deploy SNAPSHOT versions of KJAR artifacts on the Process Server and cannot change versions of an artifact in an existing container. To deploy a new version with PRODUCTION mode, create a new container on the same Process Server. To deploy SNAPSHOT versions or to change versions of an artifact in an existing container, set this parameter to DEVELOPMENT.
    • ImageStream Namespace (IMAGE_STREAM_NAMESPACE): The namespace where the image streams are available. If the image streams were already available in your OpenShift environment (see Section 2.1, “Ensuring the availability of image streams and the image registry”), the namespace is openshift. If you have installed the image streams file, the namespace is the name of the OpenShift project.
  2. You can set the following user names and passwords. By default, the deployment automatically generates the passwords.

    • KIE Admin User (KIE_ADMIN_USER) and KIE Admin Password (KIE_ADMIN_PWD): The user name and password for the administrative user. If you want to use the Business Central Monitoring to control or monitor any Process Servers other than the Process Server deployed by the same template , you must set and record the user name and password.
    • KIE Server User (KIE_SERVER_USER) and KIE Server Password (KIE_SERVER_PWD): The user name and password that a client application can use to connect to any of the Process Servers.

Next steps

If necessary, set additional parameters.

To complete the deployment, follow the procedure in Section 3.1.8, “Completing deployment of the template for monitoring and a single Process Server”.

3.1.3. Configuring pod replica numbers for monitoring and a single Process Server

When configuring the template to deploy Business Central Monitoring and a single managed Process Server, you can set the initial number of replicas for Process Server and Business Central Monitoring.

Prerequisites

Procedure

To configure the numbers of replicas, set the following parameters:

  • Business Central Monitoring Container Replicas (BUSINESS_CENTRAL_MONITORING_CONTAINER_REPLICAS): The number of replicas that the deployment initially creates for Business Central Monitoring. If you do not want to use a high-availability configuration for Business Central Monitoring, set this number to 1.
  • KIE Server Container Replicas (KIE_SERVER_CONTAINER_REPLICAS): The number of replicas that the deployment initially creates for Process Server.

Next steps

If necessary, set additional parameters.

To complete the deployment, follow the procedure in Section 3.1.8, “Completing deployment of the template for monitoring and a single Process Server”.

3.1.4. Configuring access to a Maven mirror in an environment without a connection to the public Internet for monitoring and a single Process Server

When configuring the template to deploy Business Central Monitoring and a single managed Process Server, if your OpenShift environment does not have a connection to the public Internet, you must configure access to a Maven mirror that you set up according to Section 2.5, “Preparing a Maven mirror repository for offline use”.

Prerequisites

Procedure

To configure access to the Maven mirror, set the following parameters:

  • Maven mirror URL (MAVEN_MIRROR_URL): The URL for the Maven mirror repository that you set up in Section 2.5, “Preparing a Maven mirror repository for offline use”. This URL must be accessible from a pod in your OpenShift environment.
  • Maven mirror of (MAVEN_MIRROR_OF): The value that determines which artifacts are to be retrieved from the mirror. For instructions about setting the mirrorOf value, see Mirror Settings in the Apache Maven documentation. The default value is external:*. With this value, Maven retrieves every required artifact from the mirror and does not query any other repositories.

    • If you configure an external Maven repository (MAVEN_REPO_URL), change MAVEN_MIRROR_OF to exclude the artifacts in this repository from the mirror, for example, external:*,!repo-custom. Replace repo-custom with the ID that you configured in MAVEN_REPO_ID.
    • If you configure a built-in Business Central Maven repository (BUSINESS_CENTRAL_MAVEN_SERVICE), change MAVEN_MIRROR_OF to exclude the artifacts in this repository from the mirror: external:*,!repo-rhpamcentr.
    • If you configure both repositories, change MAVEN_MIRROR_OF to exclude the artifacts in both repositories from the mirror: external:*,!repo-rhpamcentr,!repo-custom. Replace repo-custom with the ID that you configured in MAVEN_REPO_ID.

Next steps

If necessary, set additional parameters.

To complete the deployment, follow the procedure in Section 3.1.8, “Completing deployment of the template for monitoring and a single Process Server”.

3.1.5. Setting parameters for RH-SSO authentication for monitoring and a single Process Server

If you want to use RH-SSO authentication, complete the following additional configuration when configuring the template to deploy Business Central Monitoring and a single managed Process Server.

Important

Do not configure LDAP authentication and RH-SSO authentication in the same deployment.

Prerequisites

  • A realm for Red Hat Process Automation Manager is created in the RH-SSO authentication system.
  • User names and passwords for Red Hat Process Automation Manager are created in the RH-SSO authentication system. For a list of the available roles, see Chapter 4, Red Hat Process Automation Manager roles and users. The following users are required in order to set the parameters for the environment:

    • An administrative user with the kie-server,rest-all,admin roles. This user can administer and use the environment. Process Servers use this user to authenticate with Business Central Monitoring.
    • A server user with the kie-server,rest-all,user roles. This user can make REST API calls to the Process Server. Business Central Monitoring uses this user to authenticate with Process Servers.
  • Clients are created in the RH-SSO authentication system for all components of the Red Hat Process Automation Manager environment that you are deploying. The client setup contains the URLs for the components. You can review and edit the URLs after deploying the environment. Alternatively, the Red Hat Process Automation Manager deployment can create the clients. However, this option provides less detailed control over the environment.

3.1.6. Setting parameters for LDAP authentication for monitoring and a single Process Server

If you want to use LDAP authentication, complete the following additional configuration when configuring the template to deploy Business Central Monitoring and a single managed Process Server.

Important

Do not configure LDAP authentication and RH-SSO authentication in the same deployment.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. In the LDAP service, create all user names in the deployment parameters. If you do not set any of the parameters, create users with the default user names. The created users must also be assigned to roles:

    • KIE_ADMIN_USER: default user name adminUser, roles: kie-server,rest-all,admin
    • KIE_SERVER_USER: default user name executionUser, roles kie-server,rest-all,guest

      For the user roles that you can configure in LDAP, see Roles and users.

  2. Set the AUTH_LDAP* parameters of the template. These parameters correspond to the settings of the LdapExtended Login module of Red Hat JBoss EAP. For instructions about using these settings, see LdapExtended login module.

    If the LDAP server does not define all the roles required for your deployment, you can map LDAP groups to Red Hat Process Automation Manager roles. To enable LDAP role mapping, set the following parameters:

    • RoleMapping rolesProperties file path (AUTH_ROLE_MAPPER_ROLES_PROPERTIES): The fully qualified path name of a file that defines role mapping, for example, /opt/eap/standalone/configuration/rolemapping/rolemapping.properties. You must provide this file and mount it at this path in all applicable deployment configurations; for instructions, see Section 3.3, “(Optional) Providing the LDAP role mapping file”.
    • RoleMapping replaceRole property (AUTH_ROLE_MAPPER_REPLACE_ROLE): If set to true, mapped roles replace the roles defined on the LDAP server; if set to false, both mapped roles and roles defined on the LDAP server are set as user application roles. The default setting is false.

Next steps

If necessary, set additional parameters.

To complete the deployment, follow the procedure in Section 3.1.8, “Completing deployment of the template for monitoring and a single Process Server”.

3.1.7. Enabling Prometheus metric collection for monitoring and a single Process Server

3.2. Deploying an additional managed Process Server for a freeform environment

You can add a managed Process Server to a freeform environment. This server can use a PostgreSQL or MySQL database server in a pod or an external database server.

Deploy the server in the same project as the Business Central Monitoring deployment.

The Process Server loads services from a Maven repository.

The server starts with no loaded services. Use Business Central Monitoring or the REST API of the Process Server to deploy and undeploy services on the server.

3.2.1. Starting configuration of the template for an additional managed Process Server

To deploy an additional managed Process Server, use one of the following template files:

  • rhpam75-kieserver-postgresql.yaml to use a PostgreSQL pod for persistent storage. Use this template unless you have a specific reason to use another template.
  • rhpam75-kieserver-mysql.yaml to use a MySQL pod for persistent storage.
  • rhpam75-kieserver-externaldb.yaml to use an external database server for persistent storage.

    Important

    The standard Process Server image for an external database server includes drivers for MySQL and PostgreSQL external database servers. If you want to use another database server, you must build a custom Process Server image. For instructions, see Section 2.4, “Building a custom Process Server extension image for an external database”.

Procedure

  1. Download the rhpam-7.5.1-openshift-templates.zip product deliverable file from the Software Downloads page of the Red Hat Customer Portal.
  2. Extract the required template file.
  3. Use one of the following methods to start deploying the template:

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. Set the following parameters:

    • KIE Server Keystore Secret Name (KIE_SERVER_HTTPS_SECRET): The name of the secret for Process Server, as created in Section 2.2, “Creating the secrets for Process Server”.
    • KIE Server Certificate Name (KIE_SERVER_HTTPS_NAME): The name of the certificate in the keystore that you created in Section 2.2, “Creating the secrets for Process Server”.
    • KIE Server Keystore Password (KIE_SERVER_HTTPS_PASSWORD): The password for the keystore that you created in Section 2.2, “Creating the secrets for Process Server”.
    • Application Name (APPLICATION_NAME): The name of the OpenShift application. It is used in the default URLs for Business Central Monitoring and Process Server. OpenShift uses the application name to create a separate set of deployment configurations, services, routes, labels, and artifacts. You can deploy several applications using the same template into the same project, as long as you use different application names. Also, the application name determines the name of the server configuration (server template) that the Process Server joins on Business Central Monitoring. If you are deploying several Process Servers, you must ensure each of the servers has a different application name.
    • Maven repository URL (MAVEN_REPO_URL): A URL for a Maven repository. You must upload all the processes (KJAR files) that are to be deployed on the Process Server into this repository.
    • Maven repository ID (MAVEN_REPO_ID): An identifier for the Maven repository. The default value is repo-custom.
    • Maven repository username (MAVEN_REPO_USERNAME): The username for the Maven repository.
    • Maven repository password (MAVEN_REPO_PASSWORD): The password for the Maven repository.
    • KIE Server Mode (KIE_SERVER_MODE): In the rhpam75-kieserver-*.yaml templates the default value is PRODUCTION. In PRODUCTION mode, you cannot deploy SNAPSHOT versions of KJAR artifacts on the Process Server and cannot change versions of an artifact in an existing container. To deploy a new version with PRODUCTION mode, create a new container on the same Process Server. To deploy SNAPSHOT versions or to change versions of an artifact in an existing container, set this parameter to DEVELOPMENT.
    • ImageStream Namespace (IMAGE_STREAM_NAMESPACE): The namespace where the image streams are available. If the image streams were already available in your OpenShift environment (see Section 2.1, “Ensuring the availability of image streams and the image registry”), the namespace is openshift. If you have installed the image streams file, the namespace is the name of the OpenShift project.
  2. You can set the following user name and password. By default, the deployment automatically generates the password.

    • KIE Server User (KIE_SERVER_USER) and KIE Server Password (KIE_SERVER_PWD): The user name and password that a client application can use to connect to any of the Process Servers.

Next steps

If necessary, set additional parameters.

To complete the deployment, follow the procedure in Section 3.2.10, “Completing deployment of the template for an additional managed Process Server”.

3.2.3. Configuring the image stream namespace for an additional managed Process Server

If you created image streams in a namespace that is not openshift, you must configure the namespace in the template.

If all image streams were already available in your Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform environment, you can skip this procedure.

Prerequisites

Procedure

If you installed an image streams file according to instructions in Section 2.1, “Ensuring the availability of image streams and the image registry”, set the ImageStream Namespace (IMAGE_STREAM_NAMESPACE) parameter to the name of your OpenShift project.

3.2.4. Configuring information about a Business Central Monitoring instance for an additional managed Process Server

These values must be the same as the KIE_ADMIN_USER and KIE_ADMIN_PWD settings for the Business Central Monitoring. If the Business Central Monitoring uses RH-SSO or LDAP authentication, these values must be a user name and password configured in the authentication system with an administrator role for the Business Central Monitoring.
    • Name of the Business Central service (BUSINESS_CENTRAL_SERVICE): The OpenShift service name for the Business Central Monitoring.
  2. Ensure that the following settings are set to the same value as the same settings for the Business Central Monitoring:

    • Maven repository URL (MAVEN_REPO_URL): A URL for the external Maven repository froh which services must be deployed.
    • Maven repository username (MAVEN_REPO_USERNAME): The username for the Maven repository.
    • Maven repository password (MAVEN_REPO_PASSWORD): The password for the Maven repository.

3.2.5. Configuring access to a Maven mirror in an environment without a connection to the public Internet for an additional managed Process Server

When configuring the template to deploy an additional managed Process Server, if your OpenShift environment does not have a connection to the public Internet, you must configure access to a Maven mirror that you set up according to Section 2.5, “Preparing a Maven mirror repository for offline use”.

Prerequisites

Procedure

To configure access to the Maven mirror, set the following parameters:

  • Maven mirror URL (MAVEN_MIRROR_URL): The URL for the Maven mirror repository that you set up in Section 2.5, “Preparing a Maven mirror repository for offline use”. This URL must be accessible from a pod in your OpenShift environment.
  • Maven mirror of (MAVEN_MIRROR_OF): The value that determines which artifacts are to be retrieved from the mirror. For instructions about setting the mirrorOf value, see Mirror Settings in the Apache Maven documentation. The default value is external:*. With this value, Maven retrieves every required artifact from the mirror and does not query any other repositories.

    • If you configure an external Maven repository (MAVEN_REPO_URL), change MAVEN_MIRROR_OF to exclude the artifacts in this repository from the mirror, for example, external:*,!repo-custom. Replace repo-custom with the ID that you configured in MAVEN_REPO_ID.
    • If you configure a built-in Business Central Maven repository (BUSINESS_CENTRAL_MAVEN_SERVICE), change MAVEN_MIRROR_OF to exclude the artifacts in this repository from the mirror: external:*,!repo-rhpamcentr.
    • If you configure both repositories, change MAVEN_MIRROR_OF to exclude the artifacts in both repositories from the mirror: external:*,!repo-rhpamcentr,!repo-custom. Replace repo-custom with the ID that you configured in MAVEN_REPO_ID.

Next steps

If necessary, set additional parameters.

Chapter 4. Red Hat Process Automation Manager roles and users

To access Business Central or Process Server, you must create users and assign them appropriate roles before the servers are started. This section describes available Red Hat Process Automation Manager user roles.

Note

The admin, analyst, developer, manager, process-admin, user, and rest-all roles are reserved for Business Central. The kie-server role is reserved for Process Server. For this reason, the available roles can differ depending on whether Business Central, Process Server, or both are installed.

  • admin: Users with the admin role are the Business Central administrators. They can manage users and create, clone, and manage the repositories. They have full access to make required changes in the application. Users with the admin role have access to all areas within Red Hat Process Automation Manager.
  • analyst: Users with the analyst role have access to all high-level features. They can model and execute their projects. However, these users cannot add contributors to spaces or delete spaces in the Design → Projects view. Access to the Deploy → Execution Servers view, which is intended for administrators, is not available to users with the analyst role. However, the Deploy button is available to these users when they access the Library perspective.
  • developer: Users with the developer role have access to almost all features and can manage rules, models, process flows, forms, and dashboards. They can manage the asset repository, they can create, build, and deploy projects, and they can use Red Hat CodeReady Studio to view processes. Only certain administrative functions such as creating and cloning a new repository are hidden from users with the developer role.
  • manager: Users with the manager role can view reports. These users are usually interested in statistics about the business processes and their performance, business indicators, and other business-related reporting. A user with this role has access only to process and task reports.
  • process-admin: Users with the process-admin role are business process administrators. They have full access to business processes, business tasks, and execution errors. These users can also view business reports and have access to the Task Inbox list.
  • user: Users with the user role can work on the Task Inbox list, which contains business tasks that are part of currently running processes. Users with this role can view process and task reports and manage processes.
  • rest-all: Users with the rest-all role can access Business Central REST capabilities.
  • kie-server: Users with the kie-server role can access Process Server (KIE Server) REST capabilities. This role is mandatory for users to have access to Manage and Track views in Business Central.

Chapter 5. OpenShift template reference information

Red Hat Process Automation Manager provides the following OpenShift templates. To access the templates, download and extract the rhpam-7.5.1-openshift-templates.zip product deliverable file from the Software Downloads page of the Red Hat customer portal.

  • rhpam75-managed.yaml provides a high-availability Business Central Monitoring instance, a Process Server, and a PostgreSQL instance that the Process Server uses. OpenShiftStartupStrategy is enabled, ensuring that the Business Central Monitoring instance can connect to other Process Server instances in the same project automatically, as long as these instances have OpenShiftStartupStrategy enabled as well.

For reference information about other templates used in this environment, see the reference section in Deploying a Red Hat Process Automation Manager immutable server environment on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

5.2. OpenShift usage quick reference

To deploy, monitor, manage, and undeploy Red Hat Process Automation Manager templates on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, you can use the OpenShift Web console or the oc command.

For instructions about using the Web console, see Create and build an image using the Web console.

For detailed instructions about using the oc command, see CLI Reference. The following commands are likely to be required:

  • To create a project, use the following command:

    $ oc new-project <project-name>

    For more information, see Creating a project using the CLI.

  • To deploy a template (create an application from a template), use the following command:

    $ oc new-app -f <template-name> -p <parameter>=<value> -p <parameter>=<value> ...

    For more information, see Creating an application using the CLI.

  • To view a list of the active pods in the project, use the following command:

    $ oc get pods
  • To view the current status of a pod, including information whether or not the pod deployment has completed and it is now in a running state, use the following command:

    $ oc describe pod <pod-name>

    You can also use the oc describe command to view the current status of other objects. For more information, see Application modification operations.

  • To view the logs for a pod, use the following command:

    $ oc logs <pod-name>
  • To view deployment logs, look up a DeploymentConfig name in the template reference and enter the following command:

    $ oc logs -f dc/<deployment-config-name>

    For more information, see Viewing deployment logs.

  • To view build logs, look up a BuildConfig name in the template reference and enter the command:

    $ oc logs -f bc/<build-config-name>

    For more information, see Accessing build logs.

  • To scale a pod in the application, look up a DeploymentConfig name in the template reference and enter the command:

    $ oc scale dc/<deployment-config-name> --replicas=<number>

    For more information, see Manual scaling.

  • To undeploy the application, you can delete the project by using the command:

    $ oc delete project <project-name>

    Alternatively, you can use the oc delete command to remove any part of the application, such as a pod or replication controller. For details, see Application modification operations.
