Import configuration files

Available with Workflow Manager license.

ArcGIS Workflow Manager (Classic) Administrator provides tools for administrators to import a predefined Workflow Manager (Classic) configuration. The import process will create an Administrator group, AdministratorAccess privileges, and add the current user to the group when a configuration earlier than version 10.3 is imported and the Clear Database option is selected.

If jobs need to be imported along with the configuration, you can do so using the Import Job Data geoprocessing tool.

Complete these steps to import a predefined Workflow Manager (Classic) Administrator configuration:
