Installing Brocade Workflow Composer

StackStorm is an event-driven DevOps automation platform with all the essential features suitable for small businesses and teams. It’s free and open source under the Apache 2.0 license.

Brocade Workflow Composer (BWC) is the commercial version of the StackStorm automation platform. BWC adds priority support, advanced features such as fine-tuned access control, LDAP, and Workflow Designer. To learn more about Brocade Workflow Composer, get an evaluation license, or request a quote, visit brocade.com/bwc.

You can also add Brocade Network Automation Suites on top of a Brocade Workflow Composer system. See bwc-docs.brocade.com/solutions/overview.html to learn more.

To install Brocade Workflow Composer for a quick evaluation, run the commands below on a clean 64-bit Linux box that meets the System Requirements. Replace ${BWC_LICENSE_KEY} with the key you received when registering for evaluation or purchasing BWC.

curl -sSL -O https://brocade.com/bwc/install/install.sh && chmod +x install.sh
./install.sh --user=st2admin --password='Ch@ngeMe' --license=${BWC_LICENSE_KEY}

Already have a working StackStorm system, and want to add Brocade Workflow Composer? No problem! No need to install a new system. You can install Brocade Workflow Composer on top of your existing system. Just run these commands, again replacing ${BWC_LICENSE_KEY} with the license key you received when registering:

  • On Ubuntu systems:

    # Set up Brocade Workflow Composer repository access
    curl -s https://${BWC_LICENSE_KEY}:@packagecloud.io/install/repositories/StackStorm/enterprise/script.deb.sh | sudo bash
