OnCommand Workflow Automation 3.1 Designer_What's New

NetApp OnCommand Workflow Automation 3.1 has new features to help you design automated workflows. We will walk through these new features while I show you how to create a workflow. Log into the Workflow Automation (WFA) portal as an architect. We will create a new workflow to create a clustered ONTAP volume and export it over CIFS. This workflow includes multiple stages such as creating a volume in the selected storage virtual machine, creating a CIFS share on the volume mount path, and adding an access control list on the CIFS share. The first step is to search for a cluster on which we can create a volume. In the WFA 3.1 designer, we introduced two new icons in the top left corner of the step header: The first icon indicates the type of step, and the second icon indicates the type of certification. This icon shows that the command is NetApp certified. Double click on the selected command and add it as a new step in the workflow. Next we'll create an export policy. Add the command as the next step by the drag and drop method. Once this export policy is ready we need to create a volume. Search for the "create volume" command from the list of available commands. We see multiple search results. Note that one icon confirms it is a command, and another icon confirms that it is a workflow. From the search results, we see that the commands and workflows are not categorized into cluster-mode and 7-mode. In our case, we're trying to create a cluster-mode volume so we need to add a "create volume" command that will be displayed under the cluster-mode category. Double click the selected step to add it as a last column in the designer. Let's add the next step to create the export rule for CIFS. We realize that the export rule for CIFS needs to be done before "create volume". So now we need to reorder the steps. Reordering is simple in the WFA 3.1 designer. We can do it by holding the desired step and dragging it to the intended location. We can also modify the step's alias name by double clicking on the step header. If needed, we can remove a step from the workflow by clicking here. As the number of columns increases, we can increase the real estate for the designer space by collapsing the available steps panel from here. Now that we have added all of the required steps as columns to the workflow. All of the options inside the workflow are displayed as tabs in the designer itself for easy navigation and modification. Now we have added multiple rows in the workflow in WFA 3.1 we have various menu options for rows. Such as insert new row above or below the current selected row. We can copy a row and paste it above or below the selected row as well. Now it's possible to apply a condition for the entire row. This is displayed as a diamond shaped icon. Enabling or disabling the approval point is now possible with a click. We can view the "ready for production" and "last updated on" information on the bottom bar for the respective workflow. Now we have successfully and easily created a workflow using the new designer. Visit the NetApp OnCommand community. Read the Workflow Developer's Guide on NetApp Support. Thank you.
