After getting the ProcessMaker Mobile app for Android or iOS, it is possible to configure and then log on to this mobile app. The configuration should be done in each mobile device where the ProcessMaker app will be used. The ProcessMaker Mobile app can be configured to use a workspace in any ProcessMaker 3 server. To create users, modify the process, or create new workspaces, open a web browser on a desktop computer and log on to the ProcessMaker server with an administrator user. The logon in ProcessMaker Mobile should be different depending on whether you log on via a standard interface, a Google account or an Enterprise plugin.
Configure ProcessMaker Mobile
Before starting, the mobile app on Android or iOS must be configured to use a workspace on your own ProcessMaker server. To configure ProcessMaker Mobile, follow the next steps:
On the device's home screen, tap the ProcessMaker icon to open the app. If this is the first time that you are opening ProcessMaker Mobile, a product summary will display first.
The logon screen displays. Tap the Settings button to configure the server.
The Settings screen display. Tap the Server URL field.
The Server URL window displays to enter the server URL. In this field, type the server URL such as
https://pm.example.com. Then, tap OK.
Please note that this Enterprise server needs at least one active user account to log on.
After saving the server URL, the Settings screen displays again. Tap the Workspace field.
The Workspace window displays. In this field, type a valid workspace name available on the server such as
workflow3018. If you are using a personal ProcessMaker server, the default workspace is
workflow. Then tap OK.
After the server is configured correctly, the Settings screen displays again. To go back to the logon screen, tap the arrow button at the top left of the Settings screen.
Clear Cache Setting
Available Version: As of ProcessMaker Mobile 2.3.4 and later.
ProcessMaker can clear the cache automatically on certain scenarios. This functionality improves the use of data and makes ProcessMaker Mobile faster when working with different requests to the server. It also helps to make the application work more fluid after performing different tasks.
Clear Cache only releases the cache memory. Remember that no files are deleted and this action performs the clear automatically and periodically.
Note: It is mandatory to use the HTTPS URL when working with this functionality and ProcessMaker Mobile.
This section lists when ProcessMaker performs the clear cache function:
- When opening the application.
- When the application is inactive for five minutes in the background.
Clear Cache On Settings
Follow the next steps to clear the cache:
Enter the ProcessMaker Mobile Settings.
Go to the Clear Cache section located below the Server configuration section.
On the Press to Clear Cache option, select the value Data.
A confirmation dialog displays. To confirm the action, select the OK button.
The cache clears successfully. The option Press to Clear Cache is not available when there is no login with the ProcessMaker Mobile application. Therefore, the cache memory is empty.
Now, it is possible to log on to the ProcessMaker mobile app.
