Remote Approval is now an integrated feature in WorkflowGen, and is no longer a separate module.
If you have the former Remote Approval module configured, you can keep using it, but if you want to migrate to the new integrated feature, you must perform the following steps.
Uninstall the Remote Approval module (it is recommended that you make a backup of all previous Remote Approval files and folders):
Open the Windows Services list and stop the Remote Approval service, usually named
WorkflowGen RemoteApproval or
DRIVE:\Program Files (x86)\Advantys\WorkflowGen\RemApp\ folder.
\wfgen\App_Data\CustomMenus\admin.xml, remove the Remote Approval
menuItem node (you can delete the file entirely if it contains only this node).
Check Activate on the Remote Approval tab in the Administration Module Configuration Panel.
Verify your Remote Approval settings, which should be the same as in the former module, since they are inherited with the WorkflowGen upgrade.
Remote Approval no longer requires WorkflowGen application-specific credentials, since it now uses the WorkflowGen Engine service.
Whenever you change the Remote Approval refresh interval, you must restart the WorkflowGen Engine service for the new settings to take effect.
Optional: Remove the following
web.config settings, which are no longer used as of WorkflowGen 7.3.0 (you should make a backup of the existing
web.config file beforehand):
If you would like your WorkflowGen root website (e.g.
https://server) to auto-redirect to the web app (e.g.
https://server/wfgen), follow the procedure below.
Note: As of WorkflowGen 7.15.0, the PowerShell setup comes with this configuration pre-installed on your WorkflowGen server. This procedure is applicable only when upgrading an existing previous WorkflowGen server.
Make sure the URL Rewrite tool is already installed on your WorkflowGen server.
Create or update the
web.config under your website's root folder (e.g.
Define the redirection rule node as below (
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><configuration><system.webServer><rewrite><rules><rule name="Root to wfgen" stopProcessing="true"><match url="^$" /><action type="Redirect" url="/wfgen/" /></rule></rules></rewrite></system.webServer></configuration>
The following workflow applications have been integrated as built-in or assembly applications. The corresponding web applications can be disabled and removed in IIS and file system folders since they are no longer used.
To create a clean WorkflowGen database, you must use the full WorkflowGen manual installation pack, which is available at https://github.com/advantys/workflowgen-releases/releases.
