Symantec Workflow is delivered as a component of the Symantec Management Platform.
Workflow has only one installer, which you can access after you install the Symantec Management Platform. You use the Symantec Installation Manager to install the Symantec Management Platform. You can then access the Workflow Installer in the Symantec Management Console under Manage > Workflows.
Although you have some flexibility with which of the Workflow architectural components you install, Workflow Server must be installed on every Workflow computer. Therefore, every Workflow installation installs Workflow Server automatically.
Because Workflow Server is installed on all Workflow computers, you can publish your Workflow projects to any Workflow computer. However, Symantec recommends setting up a designated production Workflow Server computer. A designated production Workflow Server computer lets you create one central location to publish all your production-ready Workflow projects.
You do not have to install Workflow Designer or Process Manager when you install Workflow Server. In a typical production environment, install Process Manager only on your central production Workflow Server, and install Workflow Designer only on design computers. In a development and a testing environment, install Process Manager and Workflow Designer on a design computer
Symantec Workflow supports both Windows authentication and SQL authentication. However, Windows authentication is recommended for the following reasons:
Connection string information is stored in the Web.config files of Workflow projects.
Windows authentication also adds a layer of security.
