Description description

  • Want to use Linux command line to start and monitor workflows

Resolution resolution

In general, you cannot control workflows by the command line.

There are a limited number of workflows run a command line (like cleanup or tracking), so those workflows could be run directly by a command line but:

  • They are no longer part of a workflow so you lose the logs in the workflow UI.
  • They are no longer monitored by the workflow engine (nlserver wfserver) so they are not automatically restarted if they crash.

We don’t provide any tools to monitor those command lines since they are handled by the workflow engine by design.
