6 Years Ago


Sometimes you might want to save the documents folder in a server different than the one configured for Bizagi Web Server. In this article, we describe the required steps to configure this folder.

Applies to

Bizagi 9.x or higher


It is very important that the involved servers are in the same domain: that is, the Web Server and the Server where documents (uploads) will be stored must be in the same network domain. If you fulfill this requirement, follow these steps:

1. Configure the Documents folder in Bizagi Studio. To perform this action, follow the guidelines in the article:

Go to the Advanced option and locate the Uploads section.

2. Give enough permissions over the configured folder to the account used to start Bizagi Application pool. To perform this, follow the next instructions:

  • Open IIS Manager.
  • In the Connections pane, expand the server node and click Application Pools.
  • On the Application Pools page, select the application pool for which you want to specify an identity, and then click Advanced Settings in the Actions pane.
  • For the Identity property, click the (...) button to open the Application Pool Identity dialog box.
  • Use a custom identity, select the Custom account option and click Set to open the Set Credentials dialog box. Then type the custom domain account name in the User name text box, type a password in the Password text box, retype the password in the Confirm password text box, and then click OK.
  • Click OK to dismiss the Application Pool Identity dialog box.

3. Validate the permissions in shared folder level in order to give read and write permissions to the user in step 2.

4. Configure the Secheduler Service using the same user configured for IIS
. To perform this, follow the next instructions:

  • Open Windows Service Manager by running services.msc.
  • Right click your project's Scheduler and select Properties.
  • Go to Log On tab.
  • Click This account option and set the user configured for IIS.
  • Click Apply

5. Restart the Scheduler service and the Web Server services.
