Workflow Scheduling

Hello Guys,

 

I am looking for a possibility so that i can schedule another workflow after the current workflow is completed.

An example:

- Create user and this User will be deleted after a specified period.

 

My Plan was to have two workflows:

Workflow 1:

- Create user

- Schedule another workflow to be able to trigger "workflow 2"

 

Workflow 2:

- Remove the user created with "Workflow 1"

 

I have found an example which does schedule a Workflow, but that’s more of a reoccurring schedule and does schedules the same workflow.

 

Thanks,

Sheel

Re: Workflow Scheduling

Hi Sheel:

 

Have you tried the workflow calling workflow feature.

Here are my thoughts.

 

1. You can create a master workflow.

2. That can call workflow1 and after that workflow2.

3. Put a wait after workflow1, meaning after how much time workflow2 will be called.

 

This hopefully will solve the problem.

Re: Workflow Scheduling

Yeah thats what I thought, but then will the workflow not have a timeout setting of say 15 min.

i have a idea for deleting the user within a period of 3-4 days.

Re: Workflow Scheduling

The timeout can be set for 10days (864000 secs).

Please check 'Wait for Volume Move' command.

Wait Interval you can set for the max value(3hrs) accepted (10800secs).

Re: Workflow Scheduling

Thanks for the suggestion.
3 hours is good enough. 
I managed to created a loop with with wait.... with this one iteration is to wait for one hour and loop it by the number of hour it needs to wait.

Re: Workflow Scheduling

Cool stuff.

 

Thanks.
