An overview of Configuration toolset

Available with Workflow Manager license.

The Workflow Manager Configuration toolset provides tools that enable you to work with Workflow Manager repository configuration and also provides tools for working with distributed Workflow Manager repositories. With tools in this toolbox you can create a new workflow database, upgrade an existing database, import and export job information, and manage distributed repositories by creating replica and synchronizing them.

ToolDescription
Clear Job Replication Information

Deletes the replication information on a parent repository and sends a web service call to all the child repositories in the cluster. Consequently, the replication information is cleared from all the repositories participating in the cluster.

Create Workflow Database

Creates Workflow Manager schema and configures an enterprise geodatabase as the Workflow Manager database.

Export Job Data

This tool will export the Workflow Manager repository to a .jxl file in the specified folder location. The .jxl file will contain all the configuration information for the repository as well as information about all the jobs. The .jxl file can be imported into another Workflow Manager repository using the Import Job Data tool.

Import Job Data

This tool allows you to import Workflow Manager configuration and job information found in a repository into a destination repository. This tool is most useful for setting up a repository similar to an existing repository, disconnected repository replica creation, and change synchronization.

Replicate Job Data

Replicates the Workflow Manager configuration from a parent repository to child repositories using Workflow Manager for Server. Each child repository becomes an identical copy (replica) of the parent repository.

Synchronize Job Data

This tool synchronizes multiple Workflow Manager repositories participating in a Workflow Manager Cluster. The tool performs two-way synchronization; changes from the child repositories are sent to the parent repository and changes from the parent are sent to all child repositories.

Upgrade Workflow Database

The Upgrade Workflow Database tool upgrades an existing Workflow Manager database with the latest schema and configuration. The Workflow Manager database is used to store the job and configuration information for your work management system and one feature class that is used to store the geometries for the Location of Interest (LOI) for your jobs.
