Backing up and restoring the OnCommand Workflow Automation database and configurations on Windows

You can back up and restore the OnCommand Workflow Automation (WFA) database and supported configurations so that you can recover the data in case of a disaster. The supported configurations include data access, HTTP timeout, and SSL certificates.

Before you begin

You must have admin privileges or architect credentials.

About this task

You must create the backup in a secure location because restoring the backup will provide access to all the storage systems that are accessed by WFA.

Note: You can use only the CLI commands or REST APIs for comprehensive backup and restore operations during disaster recovery. You cannot use the web UI to create a backup during disaster recovery in a high-availability environment.


  1. Back up your existing databases and configurations.
  2. Restore a previous backup of your databases and configurations.
