Share this post:

On December 16, 2014 at 7:00 AM EST, the IBM Workflow service was successfully updated.

This update to the Workflow Beta service comes with the following changes:

  • Improved security: Invoking the IBM Dev Ops services plug-in and the Workflow Administration Console now requests your Bluemix permissions via Single-Sign On, similar to what was already happening for the service dashboard before.
  • Improved security: The previously used API key has been removed, simplifying the URL structure. This requires you to adapt your usage of existing Workflow services and update the URLs.
  • Improved design: You will notice a new look and feel of the Workflow Administration Console.
  • Improved language support: The Workflow service now supports the following languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese (Brazil), traditional Chinese, modern Chinese.


  1. In order to continue using an existing Workflow service instance bound to an application, you have to unbind and rebind that application, resulting in updates to the VCAP_SERVICES variable. The URLs are updated to the correct format. There are additional fields for user and password. You need to use those fields to set a basic authentication header when communicating from your application with the workflow service instance.
  2. In order to continue using an existing Workflow service instance with the IBM Dev Ops services plug-in, please update the plug-in configuration with the new value from the dashboard (i.e., redo steps 2 and 3 from the dashboard for each existing service).
