Re-enabling an automation workflow to run

Workflows > Automation workflow > Using automation workflow > Re-enabling an automation workflow to run

When an automation workflow is disabled, which prevents the workflow from running, you can re-enable the workflow so that it can be run on demand or when it is scheduled to run.

To re-enable an automation workflow to run

  • In the Active Roles console tree, under Configuration | Policies | Workflow, right-click the desired automation workflow and click Enable Workflow.

Delegating automation workflow tasks

Workflows > Automation workflow > Using automation workflow > Delegating automation workflow tasks

Active Roles provides a number of Access Templates allowing the administrator to delegate the following tasks related to automation workflow:

  • Configure automation workflow  To perform this task, the delegated administrator needs full control of automation workflow definitions, including the rights to add, configure and remove workflow activities, view and change the workflow start conditions, add and remove workflow parameters, and assign values to workflow parameters.
  • Run automation workflow  To perform this task, the delegated administrator needs the rights to view the definition of an automation workflow, run the automation workflow on demand, and view run history of the automation workflow.
  • View run history  To perform this task, the delegated administrator needs the rights to view the definition of an automation workflow, and view run history reports on running and completed instances of the automation workflow.

This section provides instructions on how to delegate these tasks to regular users or groups that do not have administrator rights in Active Roles.

Allowing access to workflow containers

Workflows > Automation workflow > Using automation workflow > Allowing access to workflow containers

Automation workflow tasks require access to containers that hold workflow definition objects. By default, Active Roles allows any authenticated user to view the Configuration/Policies/Workflow container itself. You can enable appropriate users or groups to view containers held in the Workflow container by applying the Workflow - View Workflow Containers Access Template to that container.

To enable users or groups to view workflow containers

  1. In the console tree, expand Configuration | Policies, right-click the Workflow container, and then click Delegate Control.
  2. In the Active Roles Security dialog box, click Add to start the Delegation of Control Wizard.
  3. On the Users or Groups page in the wizard, click Add, and then use the Select Objects dialog box to select the desired users or groups.
  4. On the Access Templates page in the wizard, under Access Templates | Configuration, select the Workflow - View Workflow Containers check box.
  5. Follow the instructions in the wizard and accept the default settings.
  6. Click OK in the Active Roles Security dialog box.

Delegating full control of automation workflows

Workflows > Automation workflow > Using automation workflow > Delegating full control of automation workflows

By giving full control of an automation workflow to a user or group, you authorize the user or group to perform the following tasks:

  • View the workflow definition
  • Make any changes to the workflow
  • Run the workflow
  • View the workflow run history reports

You can delegate full control of all automation workflows held in a certain container by applying the Automation Workflow - Full Control Access Template to that container.

To delegate full control of all automation workflows held in a certain container

  1. In the console tree, right-click the desired container under Configuration | Policies | Workflow, and then click Delegate Control.
  2. In the Active Roles Security dialog box, click Add to start the Delegation of Control Wizard.
  3. On the Users or Groups page in the wizard, click Add, and then use the Select Objects dialog box to select the desired users or groups.
  4. On the Access Templates page in the wizard, under Access Templates | Configuration, select the Automation Workflow - Full Control check box.
  5. Follow the instructions in the wizard and accept the default settings.
  6. Click OK in the Active Roles Security dialog box.

It is also possible to delegate full control of a single automation workflow by applying the Access Template to the workflow definition object.

To delegate full control of a single automation workflow

  1. On the View menu, select Advanced Details Pane.
  2. In the console tree, under Configuration | Policies | Workflow, select the container that holds the desired workflow definition object.
  3. In the upper part of the details pane, select the workflow definition object.
  4. In the lower part of the details pane, on the Active Roles Security tab, right-click a blank area and click Add to start the Delegation of Control Wizard.
  5. On the Users or Groups page in the wizard, click Add, and then use the Select Objects dialog box to select the desired users or groups.
  6. On the Access Templates page in the wizard, under Access Templates | Configuration, select the Automation Workflow - Full Control check box.
  7. Follow the instructions in the wizard and accept the default settings.
