OnCommand Workflow Automation 5.1

Restore the WFA database


You can restore the OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) database that you backed up previously.

  • You must have created a backup of the WFA database.

  • You must have admin or architect credentials.

  • Restoring a WFA database erases the current database.

  • You can restore a WFA database backup only to a system running the same or a later version of OnCommand Workflow Automation.

    For example, if you created a backup on a system running OnCommand Workflow Automation 4.2, the backup can be restored only to systems running OnCommand Workflow Automation 4.2 or later.

  1. Log in to the WFA web GUI as an admin.

  2. Click Settings and under Maintenance, click Backup & Restore.

  3. Click Choose file.

  4. In the dialog box that opens, select the WFA backup file, and click Open.

  5. Click Restore.

You can review the restored content for completeness in functionality—​for example, the functioning of your custom workflows.
