importing workflows as "deactivated"? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey All,

    following issue:

    i need to export deactivated workflows in an unmanaged solution, import the solution in another organisation but the workflows should be still deactivated. 

    is this possible?

  • Should work - just make sure when you import you leave the box unchecked to activate any processes....

  • it works like Jason said.

    we import the solutions via self developed tool, so there was no way to uncheck the box for activating... but we solved this issue !

  • As far as i know it is not possible to import a single solution with some  activated and some deactivated workflows.

  • ok, but how can i make it possible? with a plugin or otherwise in c# ?

    1. we want to import the solution to several organisations with activated and deactivated workflows.

    2. we want to update this organisations, in which we have the activated and deactivated workflows. the workflows which are deactivated should stay deactivated and the workflows which   are activated should stay activated :)

    it is a bit complicated to explain....

    if anyone know a way to solve this, please post it here !

    regards Markus

  • You could create two solutions(1. Activated. 2. Deactivated. ) for your workflows and import these solutions one bye one.

    Hope this helps. If you get answer of your question, please mark the response as an answer and vote as helpful !

  • You need to create two solutions one for activated workflows and second for deactivated  workflows
