Configure Deployment Settings

When you author a workflow, you can specify the environment in which the workflow will run. Which type of application will it run in? Will it have to work when there is no network connectivity?

Providing this information allows Workflow Designer to tailor the authoring experience to your chosen environment. In particular, the Toolbox only shows activities that work in your environment. This prevents you from accidentally using an activity that does not work in your environment. For example, if you specify that the workflow will run only in the Geocortex Viewer for HTML5, the Toolbox will only show activities that work in the Geocortex Viewer for HTML5.

Configuring a workflow's deployment settings is optional. If you do not configure the deployment settings, the Toolbox shows the complete list of activities.

Use the deployment settings to find out which activities work in a particular environment. For example, to find out if a particular activity works in Geocortex Mobile when there is no network connectivity, set the deployment settings as follows:

Check whether the activity appears in the Toolbox. If it appears in the Toolbox, then the activity works in Geocortex Mobile when there's no network connectivity. If the activity isn't in the Toolbox, then it doesn't work in the configured environment.

To configure a workflow's deployment settings:

  1. In Workflow Designer, select the tab for the workflow whose deployment settings you want to configure.

  2. Click Info in the sidebar.

  3. Click Deployment.

  4. Answer each question in the Deployment panel.

  5. Click in the design area to close the Deployment panel.
