Installation

Make sure that you have created all connectors and Flow properties before importing the workflows.

1. Import Workflows

Import workflows in the file "Anomaly Detector.wap."
Some workflows that have multiple IFS connectors.
These should be mapped to the same IFS connector when the import is done. The different connectors are only used for demo purposes.
For details see Import Workflows​

2. Setting Menu Roles

Together with the imported workflows, there will also be a menu. Connect the menu to your roles to make them available for users.
For details see Setting Menu Roles​

3. Publishing Workflows

Right-click on the Permission Set folder and select Publish, within the Server Contents window. This process can take a few minutes but once complete, a Publish Successful message will be displayed.
If you receive any errors during the publication of the workflow, please review the error detail and consult your support contact with the relevant information.
The workflows will now be available to execute on your chosen Flow client. For instructions on individual Permission Set functions, please consult the function individual documentation provided separately.
