The Configuration and Logging Tool in Workflow Designer is renamed Workflow Explorer.
To use configuration and logging tools, navigate to Start > Programs > Symantec > Workflow Designer > Tools > Workflow Explorer.
Entering Symantec Management Platform Credentials is now an option during installation.
AD Credentials have been removed from the installation.
Active Directory (AD) synchronization
Improvements in AD synchronization let you selectively synchronize users with Symantec Workflow. You can now perform partial AD synchronization to select a subset of users.
AD synchronization offers the following benefits with ProcessManager:
ProcessManager utilizes AD Credentials from the Credential Manager.
You can select enhanced synchronization scope options, including custom queries.
AD to ProcessManager Field Mapping Configuration is available.
The following new profiles are available:
Refreshed Sharepoint Component Library
The library was updated to work with Sharepoint 2007 and 2010.
Enhancements to the Integration Library
By default, all integration projects are now multi-generator container projects. Previously, creating multi-generator projects was difficult.
The user interface is more usable. It now includes a menu bar, and the generators are categorized by type.
This installer was included for partners. The Application Installer lets you bundle multiple workflow projects into a single Application Installer.
The installer includes the following features:
Add multiple projects to an application installer.
Lock models prior to distributing your project files to secure the source code of your projects.
License projects. As a Workflow user or partner, you can add license requirements for Workflow projects prior to distributing them.
Create AppPools, SQL DB, and Application Profiles during installation.
Table: Features added as part of Symantec Workflow 7.1 and 7.1 SP1
Enterprise Management module in Symantec Management Platform
The new Enterprise Management module in Symantec Management Platform can help you control Workflow deployment and publishing from a page in Symantec Management Console. To deploy and publish from within the platform, in the console navigate to Manage > Workflows and click Enterprise Management.
Updated user interface for Workflow Manager tools
The tools that go along with Workflow Manager are now named Workflow Explorer.
To view the tools, click Start > Programs > Symantec > Workflow Designer > Tools.
Default critical errors model in each project
The default critical errors model runs when workflow errors occur that the exception triggers do not handle. The default behavior of this model is to log the error to the Process Manager database.
This tool compares projects to each other and lets you see the differences. The tool also lets you merge projects.
An example is if you customize a workflow from your own design. After you customize your workflow, you receive a new model to append to your process. Another example is if you customize a workflow from a solution such as ServiceDesk. After you customize the ServiceDesk workflow, you receive an update from ServiceDesk. The comparison tool lets you merge the new process or the updated workflow with your own workflows.
Note that after a merge, you should review the results and ensure that the components are configured properly before you publish the workflows.
Repository for workflow projects in Symantec Management Platform
The Workflow Repository manages versions of projects through Workflow Manager. This repository lets you centrally store projects in the Configuration Management Database (CMDB) and share them with colleagues.
To access the repository, in Symantec Management Console navigate to Manage > Workflows > Workflow Enterprise Management and click Repository.
Entitled licensing instead of product licensing
Symantec Workflow is no longer sold as a standalone product. Workflow 7.1 is distributed as an entitled license based on the purchase of licenses for Symantec enterprise products.
