Create and edit workflow definition

To create a new workflow definition, enter the WATS Control Panel and navigate to the Workflow Manager from the menu.

Once the UI has loaded, click "New Workflow" from the ribbon, and a new definition will appear in the selected/active folder. Then select it from the list (single click).


Workflows are created as Draft, and can be moved to pending and release. They can also be revoked (automatically done when new version is released).
