Monitoring Workflows

Here you find more details about:

Open the Web Admin and select Monitor to start monitoring and managing workflows.

See Configuring Workflow Monitor to learn about auto refresh and column configuration.

For Example the columns Signature and Version can be configured as they are new features.

  • Signature column has a green check if the workflow is a signed template (WFT format used and a developer has signed it)
  • Version column indicates the version of the workflow template (for any WFT as the XAML templates have no version of course)

There is a new additional field "Min. Dependent Versions" which indicate the minimum versions of the dependencies of the template.  

Responsive Design

The layout of the Web Admin and Monitor page adapts dynamically to the screen size available.

Example layout on a smartphone:
