wfa_workflow_cli - run any WFA workflow any number of times from a script


The wfa_workflow_cli script allows you to run any WFA workflow any number of times, all from an unattended CLI, using the REST interface of WFA.  This can be useful if you need to run a given WFA workflow many times and don't want to point and click your way through it.  The wfa_workflow_cli script discovers the workflow inputs for you, and then allows you to feed it the values for multiple runs of a workflow, using a single input file. See the info.txt file for usage information and examples of wfa_workflow_cli in action.

wfa_workflow_cli_pl - The Perl source. (Rename to .pl)

wfa_workflow_cli_exe - Win32 executable. (Rename to .exe)

wfa_workflow_cli - Linux 32bit executable.
