Environment

  • Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite (BPMS) 6
  • Red Hat JBoss BRMS Suite (BRMS) 6

Issue

  • What is the recommendation to use Managed or Unmanaged Intelligent Process Server in BPM Suite 6?
  • Is it recommended to use kie server managed by business central or unmanaged and then to use rest api for managing deployments e.t.c in the kie server?

Resolution

The main difference is that in Managed Intelligent Process Server a controller manages the server configuration in a centralized way. While an Unmanaged Intelligent Process Server is a standalone instance and there is not controller involved. So there is no a better recommendation, it will depend on the user use case and preferable approach to manage it.

Note: It is also the same for Decision Server available for Red Hat JBoss BRMS product.
