Introducing the Management Module : Logging into the Management Module

Logging into the Management Module

You can log into the Management module through the Business Process Portal, the single sign-on portal for Business Process Server. You need to log in only once to gain access to any other Business Process Server modules for which you have been granted permissions. These modules can include Management, Home and Administration.
Note: If you are using Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1, then ensure that you have the Microsoft Virtual Machine installed. To verify this, select Tools > Internet Options, and open the Advanced tab. Under the "Microsoft VM" heading, make sure the "JIT compiler for virtual machine enabled (requires restart)" checkbox is selected.
After starting the servers, you can log into Business Process Portal. For more details, see Logging in to Business Process Portal.
Click the Management tab to access the Management module. Business Process Server automatically authenticates your user name and password and displays the Instances Overview page.
Note: Business Process Server’s Access Control Management feature displays an error message when you were not granted permission to use this resource.
To access features in the Management module, use appropriate module menus. This module contains the following menus:
*Overview. Provides an overview of processes in all states, as shown in Using Management overview features.
*Reports. Displays available reports and provides the interface to define and create reports. For more information, see Creating and executing reports in Business Process Portal.
*Instance Manager. Allows you to efficiently manage large numbers of process instances, worksteps and tasks, and to perform tasks in batches rather than singly. For more information, see Using the Instance Manager.
*Balanced Scorecard. Enables you to determine how your organization’s business activities are helping it meet its strategic goals. For more information, see Using the Balanced Scorecard.
*Infopad Manager. Enables you to update the information provided in an infopad, a table that stores such global data as application parameters or rule parameters. For more information, see Using the Infopad Manager.
To access other Business Process Server modules that are available to you, click a module tab to display a range of menus under that tab. Open a menu and select a submenu item to open the feature.
Once you log in to the Business Process Portal, no further authentication is required when you open a new module.
