Workflow Folders, Hiding Workflows, and Nesting Workflows

Would it be possible to implement workflow folders as well as the ability to hide workflows from the runtime workflow selection?

Workflow folders would be nice to simplify searching through a large number of folders

Hiding workflows from the runtime workflow selection would be nice to hide workflows that are embedded into other workflows and should not be run by themselves.

And for Nesting workflows it would be nice to be able to Nest Workflows deeper than 1 level with a warning that it could cause problems.

Thanks!

+ 1

Although I'd settle for a per-workflow switch to say "Show in runtime list".

Re: Workflow Folders, Hiding Workflows, and Nesting Workflows

Are you the same person that developed the bootpicker for the university of wisconsin? We are looking to replace the apple bootpicker and were wondering if the code is available to do so. We think we have issue with bootpicker and want to see if a new one will help.

Hi Hackztor,

I'm afraid not! It's a guy who's now employed by Apple, or so I believe.

Yep,

I developed the bootpicker for the University of Wisconsin - Madison, I can check to see if I'm allowed to share any of the information behind implementing it.

Use the email function of the forum to shoot me an email and I can followup on this.

Re: Workflow Folders, Hiding Workflows, and Nesting Workflows

Having the ability to use nested workflows would make things fantastically less complex for us. Even if we only had the ability to embed nested workflows via the, "Returned by script..." function.

Thanks!

Please try DSS v1.6.11.
Nested workflows depth is limited to 10 levels when flattening the workflow (Runtime).

Re: Workflow Folders, Hiding Workflows, and Nesting Workflows

Sweet! Thank you.

I'll give this a shot soon. I assume this is a runtime change and will require updated runtime images?

Right, you have to update your NetBoot sets with the new DeployStudio Admin app (which embeds the runtime).

I just tested this and the nested workflow is just skipped, it is correctly listed in the log but it is never called.

Re: Workflow Folders, Hiding Workflows, and Nesting Workflows

Hi Chris,

i struggle at the same point as you with deeper nesting of workflows. Did you get it to work in the meantime?

Nested workflows does not appear to work for me either in v1.6.11

Re: Workflow Folders, Hiding Workflows, and Nesting Workflows

For hiding Subworkflows, I created an access-group called "subworkflows" that other Directory-users that actually log into the Runtime are not a member of. So they don't see those subworkflows, but can still choose the workflows comprised of those "unvisible" ones.
