Installation Details

.NET Framework

4.8 or later

You must install the .NET Framework before you install VertiGIS Studio Workflow.

.NET 6

VertiGIS Studio Workflow requires .NET 6 that is included in the Workflow installer.
Note that installing .NET 7 or later will not affect Workflow. It will still use .NET 6.

.NET 6 is automatically installed when you install VertiGIS Studio Workflow, so you do not need to install it separately.

Port Requirements

On-premises Workflow does not expose any ports, so you do not need to adjust your firewall settings. VertiGIS Studio Workflow (including Designer) relies on the ports that IIS uses (ports 80 and 443 by default).

Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) Requirements

By default, ArcGIS portals (including ArcGIS Online) allow cross-domain requests using CORS. If you configure the Organization | Settings | Security | Allow Origins setting in the portal that you use with VertiGIS Studio Workflow, then you must add VertiGIS Studio Workflow as an allowed origin.

The origin to allow depends on your deployment:

ArcGIS Identity

You require an ArcGIS Identity to create and share VertiGIS Studio workflows.


VertiGIS Studio Licensing

VertiGIS Studio Workflow is licensed software. If you do not have a valid license, your workflows will show a licensing message when they run.
