Known limitations for OnCommand Workflow Automation

OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) 5.1 includes some limitations and unsupported features that you should be aware of before you install and configure WFA.

LDAP authentication
  • You can use only Microsoft Active Directory Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server for LDAP authentication.
  • You must be a member of an LDAP group in order to use LDAP authentication.
  • You must not use an LDAP user name that is part of a hierarchical structure of multiple domains for authentication or notification.
Note: Microsoft Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) is not supported.
WFA data sources types
OnCommand Unified Manager 6.0, 6.1, and 6.2 data source types are deprecated in the WFA 4.1 release, and these data source types will not be supported in future releases.
WFA installed on Linux
  • Certified content from Data ONTAP operating in 7-Mode is currently not available.
  • Commands that include only PowerShell code are not compatible with Linux.
  • Certified commands for 7-Mode and VMware are currently not ported to Perl, and are therefore not compatible with Linux.
Creating category names
  • When a hyphen (-) is used in a category name, it is replaced with a space once the category is saved. For example, if the category name "abc-xyz" is provided, the category name is saved as "abc xyz", with the hyphen removed. To avoid this issue, do not use hyphens in category names.
  • When a colon (:) is used in a category name, the text string before the colon is ignored once the category is saved. For example, if the category name "abc : xyz" is provided, the category name is saved as "xyz", with the"abc" string removed. To avoid this issue, do not use colons in category names.
  • There is no check to prevent two categories having the same name. However, this causes a problem when selecting these categories from the navigation pane. To avoid this issue, make sure that each category name is unique.
