Toolbox Path explicit path to the tbx jhx The Steps library contains steps that can be executed in both the desktop and server environments. With the default behavior, the step uses the job type’s default map document as the basemap document for LaunchArcMap. If you choose to store the map documents in an alternative location, Workflow Manager will not save the map documents in the database but will eari them to that location for future use.

This means that the user cannot interact with the Workflow Manager application while working in ArcMap. Creates the version for the job. The map is zoomed to the area of interest. CopyFile Copies a file from one location to another.

With the default behavior, no alternative location is configured, and the job’s map documents are stored in the Workflow Manager database. Closes a job as a step, as opposed to it being a manual process once the workflow is completed. Basemap layers are not repointed in the map opened by Workflow Manager.

Feature Class to Update must be in data geodatabase: Once layers are added to the map, the Add Data button on the Workflow Manager toolbar will take you directly to the version defined for the job or the default version for the selected data workspace. SetVersion Sets the job’s version to a named version. Each task in the workflow is described, including data and software to be used. The step supports the traditional data workspace and the feature service data workspace. CleanUp Cleans up the job based on the arguments.

To set multiple extended properties values at once separate each entry by a semicolon: ArcMap opens with a blank document. Load Task Assistant workflow.

With the default behavior, the map is panned to the job’s AOI and zoomed by a factor of 1 to the shape’s geometry. Enable the Administration jtz settings to allow users to delete versions owned by other users. No changes are made to the layer sources.

Easily create and assign work to appropriate resources. This gives you the ability to choose only some extended properties configured on the job type to be displayed in the pop-up.
