Upgrade Workflow Manager to 8.3.1

Use these upgrade instructions if you are:

  • Using a version of Workflow Manager older than 8.3.1

  • Upgrading to a version of Workflow Manager that is 8.3.1 or higher

These instructions are intended for GIS administrators who currently are in production with Workflow Manager and who want to upgrade to the most recent release of the ArcFM Solution. This document does not apply if you are not currently using Workflow Manager and will be implementing it with the most recent version of the ArcFM Solution (i.e., you are new to ArcFM and are starting with the most recent release). If this is the case, refer to Set Up Workflow Manager.

If you are upgrading your Process Framework, you may also need to use the Process Framework Database Upgrade tool.

Upgrade to 8.3.1

With release 8.3.1, the tools included with ArcFM’s Workflow Manager were retrofitted to use the new Task/Subtask architecture provided with the Process Framework. Since the tools now depend on new tasks, they will be disabled if the tasks do not exist. Many tools in Workflow Manager are affected by this change.

You will need to create the following tasks using the Process Framework Administration Tool. The Task Name must appear exactly as shown in bold below.
