Restoring the OnCommand Workflow Automation database


Restoring the OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) database includes restoring the system configuration settings and cache information, including the playground database.

  • Restoring a WFA database erases the current WFA database.

  • You can restore a WFA database backup only to a system that is running the same version or a later version of WFA.

    For example, if you created a backup on a system that is running WFA 4.2, the backup can be restored only to systems that are running WFA 4.2 or later.

  • After the restore operation is complete, the WFA SSL certificate is replaced with the SSL certificate in the backup file.

  • A comprehensive restore operation of WFA databases and configurations is required during disaster recovery, and can be used in both standalone and high-availability environments.

  • A comprehensive backup cannot be created by using the web UI.

    You can use only the CLI commands or REST APIs to backup and restore the WFA database comprehensively during disaster recovery.
