2019 (10.0)

Available in Update 2.

Two versions of each workflow template can be delivered when upgrading an SDx system.

  • A master workflow template (MSR) version which is supplied for reference only and cannot be used or edited.

  • A working copy of the workflow template (HEX) version which can be used, updated, and edited.

If there have been any changes made to the existing workflow template, only the MSR version is upgraded. The existing HEX version is not upgraded to avoid you losing any customization that has been developed for your system. You must manually upgrade your HEX version to include any new changes featured in the upgraded MSR version.

This upgrade process protects any future upgrades of the MSR workflow template from unwanted side effects if customers have edited the workflow template to meet their own workflow process needs.

  • To begin using the latest version of the workflow template, you need to update argument 8 (Workflow processing option) for the create and copy methods.

  • For any new implementation that requires workflow templates, both the upgraded MSR and HEX versions are delivered.

  • If workflow templates do not exist on the target system, both the latest upgraded MSR and HEX versions are delivered.

  • You can copy an MSR template version to create an editable HEX version of the workflow template.

Any changes made to the workflow templates previously delivered in IM 2019 are not upgraded. Only the workflow template master (MSR) version is delivered. Your existing workflow templates are treated as the editable copy and must be upgraded manually to include any new changes featured in the upgraded MSR version.
