Re: Workflow for clone creation

There is a workflow named "Clone Environment" bundled with WFA.

You can look into it. It will surely help you to get started.

Let us know if you have any more queries.

Thanks Abhi

"Clone Environment " bundle has given me some idea.

But i would like to get the Array name , volume name , snapshots and vfiler names in a drop down list .

Its possible to implement this?

It is possible to implement this.

"Create a Qtree CIFS Share in a vFiler" will give you an idea how you can have "Array name", "Volume Name", "vFiler names" in a drop down list.

Adding to Abhi's answer.

Navigate to setup from your workflow designer page.

Go to "user inputs" tab.

Select the input that you want in a drop down list and change type to query.

Double click on it and go to the Query Section where you can specify a query to retrieve whatever vfilers you want.

Example of a query can be seen in the "create Qtree CIFS share in a vFiler" workflow as mentioned by Abhi

Re: Workflow for clone creation

in the first step, you have to enable the snapshot acquisition.

afterwards you can import the attached workflow. please let me if the WF fits your requirements, thx and regards jens

Re: Workflow for clone creation

Hi Klein,

The workflow looks good. but how can i change the user input tab?

I would like to give the clone volume name manually and also i need to add the newly created clone volume to vfiler.

Please suggest ...

Re: Workflow for clone creation

You can use a string user input in order to give the clone volume name manually, if you don't need a drop down.

To add the newly created volume to vFiler, you can look into the "Create a Qtree CIFs share in a Vfiler" workflow's,

"Create Volume" command code.
