If you have workflows that use Flowable native email tasks, and you have SSL enabled, you must use secure port 465. Why?

  1. Create a workflow definition, and save it with a bpmn20.xml extension.

  2. Package the workflow definition file in a Business Archive File (.bar). A .bar file is similar to a .zip file, but with a different extension.

  4. Invoke the workflow using a script (openidm/script/), or directly, using the REST interface. For more information, see Invoke Workflows.

    You can also schedule the workflow to be invoked repeatedly, or at a future time.
