Activate or deactivate a scenario in Adobe Workfront Fusion

You can work with scenarios either in an active or an inactive state:

  • An active scenario executes periodically according to its defined schedule, as explained in Schedule a scenario in Adobe Workfront Fusion.

    This is useful when you want to automate the function of a scenario.

  • An inactive scenario executes only when you run it manually.

    This is useful when you want to run the scenario only at certain times.

You can activate or deactivate a scenario at any time, depending on how you want to use the scenario.

A newly created scenario is inactive by default.
