CodeReady Containers - Process Automation developer tools update

code ready containers
For some time now we've been working on updating your experience using CodeReady Containers, a container platform installation for your local machine, by providing interesting developer tooling and project examples.

There is no better way to learn about container technologies, container platforms, and container-based application development than getting hands-on with great open technologies.

This example is the latest version of the Red Hat Process Automation Manager, version 7.5, installed on OpenShift Container Platform (either your own installation or using our CodeReady Containers installation).

Get started today with processes, user tasks, forms, rules, and business logic in just a few simple steps, as follows.

AppDev in Cloud with Red Hat Process Automation Manager Install Demo

This demo is to install Red Hat Process Automation Manager in the Cloud based on leveraging any Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. It delivers a fully functioning Process Automation Manager containerized on OpenShift Container Platform.

Install on OpenShift Container Platform

There are two options to install and run this project on the OpenShift Container Platform; use your own existing installation or to install on CodeReady Containers which provides you with a local OpenShift cluster.
  1. Ensure you have an OpenShift container based installation, such as one of the following:

  1. Download Red Hat JBoss EAP & Red Hat Process Automation Manager, add to installs directory (see installs/README).

  2. Run '' or 'init.bat' file. 'init.bat' must be run with Administrative privileges:
   # If using your own installation just point to Openshift Container Platform 
   # IP Address as follows:
   $ ./  # example for OCP.
   # If using CodeReady Containers or the CodeReady Containers Easy Install 
   # project, just add the cluster address to HOST_IP variable found at the top 
   # of the init.{sh|bat} files, for example:
   # HOST_IP=api.crc.testing  
   # Now just run the script without any IP address arguments and it picks 
   # up that hostname as follows:
   $ ./
red hat process automation manager

Now log in to Red Hat Process Automation Manager to start developing containerized process automation projects (the address will be generated by OCP):
