    How to create a new group in KIE workbench?

    Gaetano Mazzeo Newbie

      Hi,

      I just started porting a project to the JBpm 6. If I log into the console and I go to Project Authoring, under Project Explorer I find a drop-box with only "demo" group. How can I create a new group?

       

      Also, if I try to create a new Repository, I am asked to select a group but still I can only select "demo".

       

      Thanks in advance.

      Cheers.

          The CR2 release doesn't allow you to do this through the UI yet, this will be available in the next release I believe.

           

          You can however use a command line interface to configure various properties of your repository, including group management:

            Ok, I got this tool (I found an already compiled package kie-config-cli-6.0.0-20130902.162337-319-dist.zip) and ran it on my server. Then I used create-org-unit (which replaces create-group), create-repo and add-repo-org-unit commands.

             

            After that, I ran list-org-units:

             

            Currently available Organizational Units:

                    Organizational Unit mycustomer

                    owner: admin

                    roles: []

                    repositories:

                            Repository mycustomer-playground

                                    scheme: git

                                    uri: git://mycustomer-playground

                                    environment: {username=, scheme=git, security:roles=[], password=}

                                    repository roles: []

             

            Finally, I went to the KIE Workbench but, I still had only the demo organization-unit/group. Also after restarting the server.

             

            As starting point, it seem strange to me that demo isn't present in the above list.

            I'm sure the location of the parent folder of .niogit is right (in fact the list-repo returns jbpm-playground, uf-playground, mycustomer-playground).

             

            Can you help me? Which are the right steps?

            Thanks.

              with that then started app server where it the console/kie-wb was deployed and the groups is available when cloning or creating new repositories. As you can see on the very beginning of the log I specified the location of JBOSS_HOME/bin where is .niogit located. This is in fact the only thing that might be mssing if the group/OU is not available. After adding the group via cli app server must be restarted as the application does not monitor external changes to the configuration.

               

              btw, what OS and java version do you use?

                  when you invoke the cli too against .niogit in as7 bin directly, has the application been started already? Asking because the group will be created first time application is started. Otherwise it would be empty. Another thing you could try to remove the .niogit and let the cli tool create one for you. Then add the group and check if it adds properly. Next start application on jboss and you should see both your group and demo in there.

                    I tried as you suggested but still no success.

                     

                    Moreover, just as note, I cannot see the demo group but instead I can see uf-playground and jbpm-playground. But if I use remove-repo on this two (I don't need them...) and restart the server, the jbpm-console doesn't start anymore because there are some stacktrace starting from org.kie.workbench.backend.AppSetup.assertPlayground(...). I also tried setting properties org.jbpm.console.demo and org.kie.wb.demo to false but no difference.

                      Hi,

                      now with JBPM 6 CR5 the group and repository management works: in fact I am able to create a new group and to remove from the KIE workbench, great!

                       

                      But now the problem is that if I remove the jbpm-playground and uf-playground, when I restart the JBoss server, the start fails due to an exception on assertPlayground() in org.kie.workbench.backend.AppSetup.


                      Any solution?


                      Thanks.

                      Cheers.

                        I assume you would like to have KIE workbench without the demo repositories, if that's the case you should add following system property to the server startup and that will ensue no demo repos will be loaded:

                        -Dorg.kie.demo=false
