The Workflows List

The Workflows List panel displays a list of workflows on the server as well as their current status. It also has buttons to manage and create new Workflows.

Edit: Opens the Workflow Editor tool

Note: Workflows can only be edited when not actively running.

 Start: Starts the selected Workflow on the server

 Stop: Stops the selected Workflow on the server

Delete: Deletes the selected Workflow from the server

Note: Workflows can only be deleted when not actively running.

Right Click

The following additional options are available when right clicking on a workflow in the table

Duplicate - duplicates the flow creating a new version with "_copy" appended to the name

Export - allows you to export the flow to a file to transfer to another PAS server if needed



There are four types of statuses, each associated with an icon that will be displayed next to each of the Workflows.

Active: The Workflow is currently active and watching the folders for files to process

Stopped: The Workflow is currently stopped and not running

Processing: The Workflow is currently processing files

Incomplete: One or more of the Workflow settings are currently incorrect and need to be corrected before the Workflow can be started. See Creating & Editing a Workflow for more information.



This is the name of the XML file used to store the Workflow information. This name must be completely unique to all other Workflow IDs on the server.



A descriptive name set for the Workflow either when creating or editing the task



Indicates whether the Workflow is started manually or automatically when the server is started or restarted.

Manual: If the server is started or restarted you will need to manually start the Workflow again in order for it to run

Automatic: The Workflow will automatically attempt to start the Workflow anytime the server is started or restarted

Note: If set to automatic and you have not carefully tested the Workflow information, then you may see unpredictable results the next time this Workflow is reloaded.


Last Started

Displays the date and time of when the Workflow was last started



Displays the number of files that have been processed since the Workflow was originally created.
