Saving & Restoring Revised Advance Workflow



2 minute read

Users/Implementers of APPSeCONNECT requires to edit and modify workflows frequently as per the business requirement. Advance Workflows is enabled with the feature of saving revised editions which means users/implementers of APPSeCONNECT can now save a revised version of the created workflow and modify changes to the existing workflow with respect to the business process.

Scenario Briefing

As a User/Implementer, I want to commit changes to the designed workflow, and it has been observed that designed workflow doesnot fulfils the business process, but I want to save the designed workflow (version wise) before editing the workflow so that whenever needed I can restore the previous version to for revise purpose.

Saving Revisions is now possible on APPSeCONNECT and user can save multiple version of a workflow for revision.

Prerequisites of Saving & Restoring Revisions

  • You need a valid credentials to the APPSeCONNECT portal.
  • You need to have a saved workflow.

Steps for Saving workflows for Revision

  1. Login to APPSeCONNECT portal and navigate to Advance Workflow Section. The Advance Workflow Listing page opens.
  2. Create a Workflow or open an existing workflow. The page for designing and executing advance workflow opens.
  3. In the Workflow Header Panel, Click SAVE REVISION, for saving a revised version of the existing workflow.
    Note: The SAVE REVISION button appears only after saving a created Workflow.
  4. While saving a revision, user needs to provide a comment for distinguishing the workflow while restoring. Therefore, on clicking the SAVE REVISION button, user gets a window for adding COMMENT to the workflow that is being saved for later use.
    Protip: It is recommended to provide the comment as per the business process or workflow design. For Ex: Workflow for adding Sales Order using Halt & Resume, Workflow for adding Business Partner using Delay Node.
  5. Clicking SAVE button, user gets confirmation message for the workflow being saved for revision. restoring-saving-workflow4
  6. Once the workflow is saved, user can click on the Revision History button. The user will get a sliding window with the view of all the revision workflows.
  7. The Revision history window display the detail of the workflow that was first created. The details that will be displayed are:
    • Created By: Will display the name of the user, who created the original Workflow.
    • Created Date: Will display the date and time, when the workflow was first created.
  8. Users/Implementers of APPSeCONNECT will also get the privilege to filter workflow based upon the revision list. User needs to click on the Filter icon to enable the Search option. restoring-saving-workflow6
  9. The revision list will have all the workflows that were saved for revisions. The table will have the columns Version, Modified Date, Comment & Action.
  10. Hovering on each Revision Workflows, button with three horizontal dots will appear which will enable the user to provide actions to the workflows. The actions that can be implemented are:
    • Restore
    • Delete
  11. Users/Implementers will be able to edit the Revision Workflows by clicking on the Restore Button for that workflow.
    • Any changes made on a restored workflow, on saving its revision, a new entry will be created in the Revision History. No entries would be deleted, if a revised workflow is saved for another revision.
    • On deleting a revision, every detail of that revision will be erased. User cannot restore the revision after deleting it from the Revision History.
    • Deploying of workflow has no dependability on revision of the workflow, which means restoring a workflow from revision will not save any deployment history.
