Importing the workflow configuration files

In order for workflows to be processed correctly, you must import the workflow configuration files by using the Process Configuration Console or by using the Configuration Manager.

Use the Process Configuration Console when you are using an earlier version of Component Manager. Use the Configure Workflows task in the Object Store Configuration Profile of IBM® Enterprise Records when you are using a later version of Component Manager.
Important: In the RMWorkflowConfiguration.xml file, TrackingAttachment is set to false, which makes the Scan Physical Items feature unavailable. If you do want to use the Scan Physical Items feature, you can change TrackingAttachment to true in the RMWorkflowConfiguration.xml file now or modify it later through the Process Configuration Console Application Engine. Enabling this tracking feature can cause a serious Process Engine or Content Platform Engine performance issue. If you have large number of work items in Process Engine or Content Platform Engine, it might take a long time to finish the IBM Enterprise Records workflow configuration file import process. Purge unneeded event log records and tracker work items from Process Engine or Content Platform Engine first to limit the impact.
Attention: To import the workflow configuration files by using the Configure Workflows task in the Object Store Configuration Profile of IBM Enterprise Records Configuration Manager, see the Configuring and transferring workflows topic.

To import the workflow configuration files by using the Process Configuration Console:

  1. From the Process Configuration Console, right-click the connection point and select Import from XML file.
  2. Click Browse and select the RMWorkflowConfiguration.xml file.

    This file is available in the ier_install_path/Workflow/configureRMworkflow directory on the IBM Enterprise Records server.

    Tip: If you run the Process Configuration Console from a server other than the IBM Enterprise Records server, ensure that the RMWorkflowConfiguration.xml configuration file is copied onto the browser server. Select the XML file from that location.
  3. Select the Merge option.
  4. Click Import, then click Yes to proceed with the import.
  5. Click Details to view the details of the import, and then click Close.
  6. From the Process Configuration Console, right-click the connection point and select Import from XML file.
  7. Click Browse and select the RMStepProcessorInfoConfig.xml file.
    This file is available in the ier_install_path/Workflow/configureRMworkflow directory on the IBM Enterprise Records server.
  8. Select Overwrite.
  9. Click Import and then click Yes to proceed with the import.
  10. Click Details to view the details of the import.
  11. Click Close to close the dialog box.
  12. After the import completes, expand the Work Queues node and verify that the IBM Enterprise Records queues are listed.
    RM_Workflow_Util and RM_Operations are listed.
