Create a New Workflow for an App

Prev Top Next More


The following procedure creates a new workflow, either from scratch or a built-in template, and adds it as a menu item to the I Want To menu.

The built-in workflow templates offer common GIS functions, such as performing a buffer identify operation. You can customize the workflow in VertiGIS Studio Workflow or use the functionality provided by the template as is.

The built-in templates available are dependent on the context of the menu, which determines the type of data (if any) that is passed as input to the workflow. For example, while the I Want To menu does not pass any type of information into the workflow, the Map Context menu passes the point where the user right-clicked the map into the workflow. For more information about menu contexts, see Use the Menu Context as a Workflow Input.

This option is not available for on-premises Workflow installations that are not installed in the default installation folder. If so, you must create the workflow within Workflow Designer instead.
