Monitoring window

The Monitoring window displays details about results of the planning or execution phase of the workflow. The tabs in the window display read-only content. You can access this window from various areas of the WFA application when selecting the Details, Preview, or Execute options.

Status area

The Status area above the tabs displays detailed information about the result of the planning or execution process.

Workflow status
At the top of the window, a color-coded header displays the result of the planning or execution process:
  • Green indicates a successful action—for example, Planning Completed or Execution Completed.
  • Red indicates failure—for example, Planning Failed or Execution Failed.
Less/More info action
This action link is available when the preview or execution process fails. You can toggle between Less info and More info using the action link. Depending on the action, the link opens or closes the information box to show more or less information about the failed result.
Detailed status
This box is available when the preview or execution process fails. It displays details about the planning or execution process. When a process fails, this box is open by default and provides details of the cause of the failure.

This tab is useful for debugging a failed preview or execution of the workflow.

The Execution Plan tab provides a translated list of the workflow commands and their arguments that are being executed (scripts or commands).

You can use this tab for debugging a failed preview or execution of the workflow.

You can use the sort arrows (Sort down icon or Sort up icon) in the column header to sort the column entries in ascending or descending order.

The Return Parameters tab lists the output of the workflow, by parameter name and parameter value.

You can access these return parameters by using web services.
