How to save flow definition?

Hi all,

I'm new in "Platform process manager" tool so I need answer on small question that will be probably obvious for experience "Platform process manager" usersSmiley Happy

I need to open flow via "Flow editor" tool that is part of "Platform process manager", "Flow editor" see(can open) only XML files that probably consists of flow definition.

I created some test job in DI studio, schedule it , then create test flow from SAS management console, also schedule this flow.

So now, flow is defined and I can probably save flow definition into some xml file, but how to do it?

Is it should be some simple export of flow metadata, or may be each time when flow scheduled needed XML file with flow definition automatically saved somewhere on server?

On another words I need to open in "Flow Editor" some flow, that was created and configured from SMC.

Thanks!

Re: How to save flow definition?

Been a while since I used LSF, but here goes:

I think the only way to make Flows visible/accessible in Flow Editor/manager is to deploy a job for scheduling from SMC, don't thin that there is a save as XML-way.

What kind of changes do plan to do?

I think best practice is to have the flow definitions in SMC as a master, then run then using LSF (not mange).

Hi Linus,

So you wrote:

I actually did it, it become visible from flow manager(and I can run it from here), but flow editor doesn't see the flow, there are "open" button that cause occuring prompth window that see only XML files with flows definitions.

Than you wrote:

As I wrote higher - I succesfully run this my flow (created from SMC) using flow manager.

What I need - run same flow using "Process manager" command line via "jrun" command.

In documentation I've found that Jrun command executes only with "flowname" as parameter : % jrun /flows/backup.xml


Here is the pdf link:

page 219

So, what I need now - run flow(created and scheduled from SMC) by "Process manager" Jrun command.

Thanks!
