Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1284113
Process & Task Dashboard Is Unavailable to User in Manager Role
Last modified: 2016-01-08 16:48:02 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Env is defined by https://github.com/sherl0cks/docker-bpms/tree/6.2.0.CR1 which is in docker hub https://hub.docker.com/r/sherl0cks/bpms/tags/
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Login to provide container with jboss:bpmsuite1!
2. Dashboards -> Process & Task Dashboard
No dashboard with message "The process dashboard is NOT available. Please, review the installation instructions."
Dashboard is shown. If there is an error that discusses installation instructions, then a link should be provided.
says that Manager role should be able to see this dashboard. It is possible this is a docs issue

Further analysis shows that this is a port mapping issue. When letting docker manage port mappings (best practice), eap's http(s) ports (8080/8443) will be mapped to a random port on the network interface. It appears that when Business Central calls into Dashbuilder to render the process & task dashboard, Business Central expects Dashbuilder to be on port 8080, but it is not. This results in "java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused."
If you explicitly map the containers port 8080 to the host's 8080, then the dashboard appears as expected.
This is not a bug. Perhaps needs to be marked as an enhancement related to docker?
Additionally, this only appears to be an issue on localhost.
