Sample Workflows

The Advanced Workflow Engine comes with several sample workflows to demonstrate how to create a workflow. The comments in the workflow provide instructions. The sample files are stored in C:\ProgramData\Globalscape\EFT Server Enterprise\AWE. When you create a Site, a copy of the sample file is saved prepended with the Site's name. For example, on Site "MySite," Sample - _README FIRST_.aml is saved as MySite_Sample - _README FIRST_.aml.

To view the sample workflows

  1. In the EFT administration interface, connect to EFT and click the Server tab.

  2. In the left pane, expand the Site node for the Site that you want to configure, then click the Advanced Workflows node. The node expands to show the Sample Workflows.

  1. In the left pane, click a sample workflow. The right pane displays the properties of the selected workflow.

  2. Do one of the following to open the workflow in the Task Builder:

  1. View the comments in the Steps pane for instructions on how to configure the workflow. Use this guidance to create similar workflows.

  2. If you want to save the sample workflow with your changes, click Save and Close. The .aml is saved and prepended with the Site name. (e.g., MySite_Sample - Ping)

If you have accidentally overwritten a sample workflow and you want to revert to the Site's version of the sample file, you can copy the original in the default location and save it with the Site's name, as described above. You can also create an Event Rule to periodically back up the folder that contains your custom workflow.
