Workflow Studio is an application component that provides the user interface and business logic to cover all use cases for creating, editing, managing, testing, and publishing the workflows. It is divided into four parts, which are described in details below:
Launching Workflow Studio
The workflows are available in the Administration application → Services & Processes → Workflows page.
Workflow management is made in the Workflow Studio:
Workflow Studio is available only for Windows OS.
Before running the Workflow Studio for the first time make sure that your browser has installed ClickOnce Extension. The link is available in the Quick Starts section as shown in the image above.
ClickOnce extension or equivalent that enables launching ClickOnce applications from your browser is required for any browser run on Windows OS, for instance:
- Google Chrome requires ClickOnce for Google Chrome;
- Firefox works with Breez ClickOnce;
- Microsoft Edge requires enabled ClickOnce support as described below.
Microsoft Edge (Chromium-based)
ClickOnce Extension additional installation can be skipped for Chromium-based Microsoft Edge (available beginning January 15, 2020) if the
edge://flags/#edge-click-once option is set to Enabled:
The Workflow Studio will be opened in a separate window and present a splash screen while initializing. The application has two different behaviors, depending on whether it was opened with or without the context of a workflow.
If there was no workflow selected (launch from Administration → Services & Processes → Workflows → Quick Start → Workflow Studio), the Workflow Studio will immediately show the Recent menu item of the File menu.
If a workflow is selected and you click Edit in Studio under Actions, the selected workflow will be opened in the Workflow Studio Editor.
