Information in this document applies to any platform.


The goal is to configure the Oracle Business Process Management (Oracle BPM) Process Spaces on an Enterprise Deployment instance.

Refer to the EDG (Enterprise Deployment Guide) Documentation:
Oracle Fusion Middleware Enterprise Deployment Guide for Oracle WebCenter Portal 11g Release 1 (

Oracle Business Process Management (Oracle BPM) Process Spaces is a workspace built on top of WebCenter Portal: Spaces, and it provides spaces designed specifically for modeling and executing business processes. These spaces include a process workspace, a process modeling space, and a process instance space.

For more information about Process Spaces functionality, refer to "Understanding Oracle Business Process Management Process Spaces" in Oracle Fusion Middleware User's Guide for Oracle Business Process Management.

In summary, Process Spaces relies on Oracle WebCenter Content Server and Oracle WebCenter Portal's Discussion Server for collaboration purpose. You can enable Process Spaces in Spaces by extending your WebCenter Portal domain with the Oracle BPM Spaces template. You also need to run the install.xml script. The installation script can be used for a single-server configuration as well as a cluster configuration (as described below).
