When you run a process from Bonita BPM Studio it runs on the local Bonita BPM Engine and launches a local Bonita BPM Portal. The process is not deployed, but behaves as it would after deployment. Running a process from Bonita BPM Studio is intended for testing during process development.
To run a process, open the process diagram and select the pool, then click Run in the Cool bar. The process in the selected pool runs. Only one pool can be run at a time.
