Export OnCommand Workflow Automation content


You can save user-created OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) content as a .dar file and share the content with other users. The WFA content can include the entire user-created content or specific items such as workflows, finders, commands, and dictionary terms.

What you'll need

  • You must have access to the WFA content that you want to export.

  • If content that is to be exported contains references to certified content, the corresponding certified content packs must be available on the system when the content is imported.

    These packs can be downloaded from the Storage Automation Store.

About this task

  • You cannot export the following types of certified content:

    • netapp certified - NetApp-certified content

    • ps certified icon wfa - content developed by Professional Services (PS), which is available only on custom installations made by PS

    • community certification - packs developed by users

  • All of the objects that are dependent on the exported object are also exported.

    For example, exporting a workflow also exports the dependent commands, filters, and finders for the workflow.

  • You can export locked objects.

    The objects remain in the locked state when they are imported by other users.
