This chapter describes how Flowable Control can be installed and configured to be able to monitor instances of Flowable Engage.
Download Tomcat 8.5.x (latest version of the 8.5.x line) from: https://tomcat.apache.org/download-80.cgi or Tomcat 9.x from https://tomcat.apache.org/download-90.cgi. Once you downloaded the package you should unpack it. Do not run the Tomcat yet, first follow the steps for the installing the Flowable Control WAR.
Download the Flowable Control WAR file from the Flowable Maven Repository (appropriate access credentials are required): Flowable Control.
flowable-control.warand copy it into the Tomcat’s

To manage apps from an instance of Flowable Engage add the following properties to the
application.propertiesfile just created. The properties defined below are used to create the initial data values and are typically used during initial system startup. After that the values are stored internally and these properties are not used.
flowable.control.app.cluster-config.name=Default Cluster flowable.control.app.cluster-config.description=Default Flowable Cluster flowable.control.app.cluster-config.server-address=http://localhost flowable.control.app.cluster-config.port=8090 flowable.control.app.cluster-config.context-root=flowable-engage flowable.control.app.cluster-config.user-name=admin flowable.control.app.cluster-config.password=test
Remember to adapt the values (e.g., server, port, context, etc.) to your specific installation values.
You can now start the Tomcat by running
bin\catalina.baton Windows). Alternatively you can run
bin/catalina.sh runto have it run in the foreground.
You should now be able to access Flowable Control by going to: http://localhost:8080/flowable-control.
You can login with the user
