Changing a Workflow

Jump to solution

We're in the process of creating and implementing a now Project workflow process. 

 

Can I create a whole new workflow process and change to it in the current request type without affecting the existing projects?  I believe the answer is yes, but cannot seem to find the documentation that says exactly the steps to be taken for changing an existing process workflow.  I know that I should NOT change workflow steps, but in this case the whole process and configurations of step sources has changed. 

 

If I remember correctly, you can take a new workflow process, add it to the existing request type, activate it and keep the old workflow active until all the projects using the older process have completed.  Is that correct, or do I de-activate the older workflow process after activating the new one?

 

Thanks.

Hi Max,

 

The existing requests will keep the old workflow, the new ones will be created with the new process workflow.

You just need to wait until the existing requests finish and disable the old workflow.

Best regards,
Randall

I thought that was the case. Thanks for the re-iteration.
