System requirements

Hardware minimum requirements for the web server and the database server

Process Manager is a client-server application and requires at minimum two servers , a web server and a database server . The two servers can run on the same machine.

Web server Database server Web server and database server on one logical server
4 CPU cores (virtualization possible)
  • 2 CPU cores (virtualization possible)
  • 6 CPU cores (virtualization possible)
    Support of 64-bit systems
  • Support of 64-bit systems
  • Support of 64-bit systems

    8 GB RAM (dedicated to the application server)
  • 4 GB RAM (dedicated to the database)
  • 12 GB RAM

    • 4 GB RAM dedicated to the application server
    • 4 GB RAM dedicated to the database

    20 GB hard-drive space

    30 GB hard-drive space
    (enough for approx. 20,000 diagram revisions when using a MySQL database)

    50 GB hard-drive space

    Hardware minimum requirements for a client

    • Processor: 2,00 GHz or more
    • 4 GB RAM
    • 1 GB empty disk storage

    Software requirements for the web server

    macOS is not supported as operating system for the Signavio Process Manager web server.

    • Operating system:
      • Debian Stable Release 64-bit
      • Microsoft Windows 64-bit
    • Java 8 (64-bit), we recommend to use AdoptOpenJDK Version 8 (LTS), with Hotspot selected as the JVM.

      Pay attention to the version number. Process Manager does not yet support Java 11.

    • Apache Tomcat 8.5.x

    64-bit is required so that the Java VM is able to address more than 1.5 GB of heap space.

    If you have purchased Collaboration Hub and want to use Kerberos authentication for single-sign-on, make sure the web server connecting to your Active Directory is running on Microsoft Windows 64-bit.

    Software requirements for the database server

    macOS is not supported as operating system for the Signavio Process Manager database server.

    Operating system:

    • Debian Stable Release 64-bit
    • Microsoft Windows 64-bit

    Database:

    MySQL Standard Edition 5.7.x (InnoDB Storage Engine) or MySQL Enterprise Edition 5.7.x (InnoDB Storage Engine)

    Process Manager does not yet support MySQL 8.x.

    We recommend to also install the MySQL Workbench. The administration of the MySQL server is much easier with it.

    Software requirements for a client

    • Operating System:
      • Microsoft Windows
      • Mac OS X
      • Linux
    • Web browser

    Email server

    You need to connect Signavio Process Manager to an email server. Make sure the email server can be reached within your network and create an account for Signavio Process Manager or allow anonymous access.

    System requirements for Signavio Workflow Accelerator (optional)

    You need to set up a Signavio Workflow Accelerator server to be able to use the approval workflow feature of the Enterprise Edition. Signavio Workflow Accelerator has to be installed on a separate server. Refer to the Signavio Workflow Accelerator Administrator Guide for more information about the system requirements and the installation process.
