KIE Server OptaPlanner Task Assignment

An example of assigning tasks on KIE Server using OptaPlanner.


  • JDK 1.8 or above
  • Maven 3.0+
  • node.js 8.12+
  • npm 6.4.1+
  • WildFly
  • KIE Server war file from OptaPlanner website (Execution server -> Any application server, unzip to find the war file)

Running the demo

First start a WildFly instance and deploy KIE artifacts:

  • Download and unzip the WildFly distribution. Let’s call the root of the distribution WILDFLY_HOME. This directory is named after the WildFly version, so for example wildfly-15.0.1.Final is the one we're using for this demo.
  • Download kie-server-...-ee7.war and place it into WILDFLY_HOME/standalone/deployments as kie-server.war.
  • Configure user(s) and role(s). Execute the following command WILDFLY_HOME/bin/ -a -u 'kieserver' -p 'kieserver1!' -ro 'kie-server'. You can of course choose different username and password, just make sure that the user has role kie-server
  • Start the server by running WILDFLY_HOME/bin/ -c standalone-full.xml. The default URI for KIE Server is http://localhost:8080/kie-server/services/rest/server. Check this location in a web browser to verify the server is running. You will be prompted to type in username and password, use the ones you chose when adding a new user.

Now that the KIE Server is running, let's deploy an OptaPlanner service to solve a task assignment problem.

  • Copy the OptaPlanner service kjar to your local mvn repository, this can be done by typing the command mvn install in kie-server-optaplanner-task-assignment/task-assignment-kjar.
  • Run the UI:
    • Go to kie-server-optaplanner-task-assignment/task-assignment-ui
    • npm install to install the dependencies.
    • npm start this will start the frontend application. If it doesn't open in a default browser, open your favorite browser and go to localhost:3000


  1. build the kjar:
cd task-assignment-kjar
mvn install
  1. Run the kie server:
cp kie-server-...-ee7.war WILDFLY_HOME/standalone/deployments/kie-server.war
WILDFLY_HOME/bin/ -a -u 'kieserver' -p 'kieserver1!' -ro 'kie-server'
WILDFLY_HOME/bin/ -c standalone-full.xml
  1. Run the UI:
cd task-assignment-ui
npm install
npm start
