unzip jbpm-installer/lib/jbpm-console-6.5.0.Final-wildfly-10.0.0.Final.war -d ./wildfly-10.0.0.Final/standalone/deployments/jbpm-console.war
touch ./wildfly-10.0.0.Final/standalone/deployments/jbpm-console.war.dodeploy

Change into WildFly Home, execute add users shell script


Alternatively, execute below commands under WildFly Home

./bin/ -a -u admin -p password1! -g admin,analyst,kiemgmt,rest-all,kie-server
./bin/ -a -u krisv -p password1! -g admin,analyst,rest-all,kie-server
./bin/ -a -u john -p password1! -g analyst,Accounting,PM
./bin/ -a -u mary -p password1! -g analyst,HR
./bin/ -a -u sales-rep -p password1! -g analyst,sales
./bin/ -a -u jack -p password1! -g analyst,IT
./bin/ -a -u katy -p password1! -g analyst,HR
./bin/ -a -u salaboy -p password1! -g admin,analyst,IT,HR,Accounting,rest-all
./bin/ -a -u kieserver -p password1! -g kie-server

NOTE: These users are used for test and use simple plain txt based jaas login module, if use OpenLDAP server, this step is redundant.

6. Start jbpm & Validate installation

-Xms2048m -Xmx2048m -XX:MetaspaceSize=256M -XX:MaxMetaspaceSize=512m

add system properties to disable import example data

-Dorg.kie.demo=false -Dorg.kie.example=false

start jBPM via

./bin/ -b -bmanagement= -c standalone-full.xml

Once start finished, access http://localhost:8080/jbpm-console will log into jBPM console with admin/password1!:
