Workflow management - Platform - BlueCat Gateway - 24.1

Gateway Administration Guide

Product name
BlueCat Gateway
The Workflow management page displays a table of custom workflows in the local Gateway instance. From here, you can add, delete, and export custom workflows. You can:

To open the Workflow Management page, click the Navigator button if necessary, then click Administration > Workflow management.

Note: Administrative workflows implement core Gateway functionality. They are stored inside the container image. Administrative workflows are not available for export (or import) and aren't visible on the Workflow Management page.
Tip: If you mapped a Docker volume, do not manually import and export workflows from outside BlueCat Gateway. Instead, use the import and export features from within the Workflow Management UI.

The Workflow Management page has two tabs: The Workflow tab and the Snapshots tab.

Workflows tab

The Workflows tab displays a table of custom workflows in the local Gateway instance. The table lists the following for each workflow:

  • The user-facing Name of the workflow as it appears in the Gateway UI.

  • The Path or endpoint of the workflow. Internally, this is the folder in which the workflow's files are stored in the Gateway container. It is also used as an endpoint (a partial URL) for the workflow page in your browser. You will use the Path when configuring permissions for the workflow.

  • The Time stamp, showing last time the workflow was modified.

  • At the end of each workflow is an action button () that lets you Export, Delete, or take a Snapshot of that workflow.

Snapshots tab

The Snapshots tab lets you view a list of snapshots of workflows that were previously created. A snapshot preserves a workflow in its current state. From the Snapshots tab, you can restore a workflow to that snapshot, or delete it.

The table lists the following for each snapshot:

  • The Name of the snapshot, given when it was created.

  • The Path or endpoint of the workflow that the snapshot captured.

  • The Time stamp, showing when the snapshot was created.

For more details on working with snapshots, see Creating and reverting to workflow snapshots.
