What You Will Learn

After finishing this guide you will know which configurations can be made and which effect they have on the Workflow Executor App.

How to Configure the App

This window is used for editing all global settings of the Workflow Executor app.

Configuration Optionen Konfig
All changes made will be temporary and have to be submitted by clicking ‚Accept‘
Settings related to the engine should only be changed by more experienced users.
  • ‚Number of threads to run the engine‘: Defines how many cores the java process is allowed to use at max for the execution of the engine (max is 99).

  • ‚Time after which the engine queries whether it is still in the PAUSE state‘: When pausing a workflow, the engine will remain in the PAUSE-State. After that, the engine will repeatedly fetch for updates after the given polling time (which can be edited in ms here) was awaited.

  • ‚Activate expert mode‘: Whether the lite, or the expert mode should be used.

  • ‚Standard Workspace-Path‘: Used to edit the default location for new workspaces to be created in. Changing this will not transfer existing workspaces to that location! The default directory is: „C:\Users_USER_\.pak\workspaces“. Clicking the button next to the input field allows a selection of the standard workspace-path via a folder chooser.

  • ‚Do a data flow analysis before starting the engine?‘: The Workflow Executor also has the ability to run a Dataflow Analysis on new .bpmn files. When unchecking this, the engine will not run a Dataflow Analysis, but fail when the given .bpmn is corrupt.

  • ‚Enable editing of optional values after the Workflow is opened‘: Whether optional values can be edited after a Workflow is opened.

When changing settings, they will be adapted for every new installation of the Workflow Executor
  • ‚Automatic deletion of the Workflows‘: Used to edit the automatic deletion behaviour for previously ran Workflows. Possible options are:

    • ‚Never‘: Never delete previous Workflows

    • ‚At Restart‘: Delete previous Workflows on app restart

    • ‚After .. Days‘: Delete previous Workflows after the specified amount of days

  • ‚Fetch available adapters before creating new credentials‘: Whether there should be a search for available Connector Credentials before creating new Credentials in this dialog.

  • ‚Show deprecated Commands?‘: When selected, the single Command runner also shows all deprecated commands

  • ‚Activate full logging?‘: When selected, the app will provide more extensive logging in the log-files. However, as this option can blow-up the log file size by a lot, it’s reset at app restart

  • ‚Show text annotations in Bpmn?‘: When selected, text annotations that were set in the PAK-Editor will also be shown in the bpmn-viewer of the app

  • ‚Move the application to the foreground when any Human Task is encountered‘: When selected, the app will put in front of other running applications when an Human Task is encountered.
