Migration with the Workflow Admin Service Business Service The Workflow Admin Service business service allows you to import, export, deploy, and activate multiple workflow processes in bulk. Workflows are identified through a search specification. For more information see, “Import and Export when Using Certain Features of Siebel Tools” on page 222 and “Workflow Admin Service Business Service” on page 489 . Migration with Import/Export You can use Import/Export for incremental migration of workflow processes. You use Siebel Tools to export workflows from one environment and to import workflows to another environment. The Import/Export feature for Siebel Workflow is designed only to migrate an individual workflow or a small set of workflows. For example, Siebel Workflow Import/Export cannot migrate 150 workflows at one time. To migrate large numbers of workflows with Import/Export, break them into sets of 10 workflows or less. For more information, see “Importing and Exporting a Workflow Process” on page 224 . Migration with Siebel Tools When using Siebel Tools, you import the workflow process into the repository of the target environment, then you click Publish to mark the workflow for migration. After this, the workflows are ready to be activated. This technique makes sure the versions of the workflows that exist in the repository tables and the run-time tables are the same.

Administering a Workflow Process Process of Migrating a Workflow Process Siebel Business Process Framework: Workflow Guide Version 8.1, Rev A 221 Figure 19 illustrates an incremental migration using the Import/Export utility and Siebel Tools. Steps you perform when you use Siebel Tools to import a workflow process include: 1 Export the workflow process to XML by using the Import/Export Utility. 2 Import the workflow process into the repository of the target environment. 3 Activate the workflow process. Migration with Siebel Tools In Conjunction with the Siebel Client You can import a workflow process directly into the run-time tables. This technique bypasses the requirement for you to write the workflows into the repository tables of the target environment and activation from the Siebel client, although these steps are still performed in the background by the Workflow Engine. This technique causes the latest version of the workflow process in the run-time tables, used by the Workflow Engine, to be different from the version that resides in the repository tables. NOTE: Importing directly to the run-time tables is an effective technique for testing a workflow process in a different environment. However, it is recommended that this technique not be used for general migration of workflows across environments. Figure 19. Incremental Migration Using Import/Export From within Siebel Tools

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
