Using the Alfresco Workflow Console

Once started, the workflows execute in the background in the jBPM context. There is a little way to debug and see what is going on around the workflows.

Alfresco has provided a wonderful tool to investigate inside the workflow engine.

You can perform various common tasks using this console window

  • Deploy, undeploy process definitions
  • See all the deployed process definitions
  • See all currently running workflows
  • Start, stop, cancel a workflow
  • See details of a workflow
  • See paths of a workflow
  • See any running task details along with task properties
  • Create, assign process variable values
  • See pending tasks, pooled tasks

In this recipe, we will see how to do some of these actions.
