Correct way to put workflow into edit mode

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How can I edit a workflow in the provisioning workflow composer?

Answer

By default all TPM workflows are read-only. To make the workflow editable in provisioning workflow composer log in as tioadmin to TPM server and issue the following commands:

>db2 connect to maxdb71 user maximo using <password>

> db2 update workflow4 set IS_EDITABLE='Y' WHERE WORKFLOW_NAME='Name_of_the_workflow'

For example:

> db2 update workflow4 set IS_EDITABLE='Y' WHERE
WORKFLOW_NAME='AIX_Patch_Acquire_Updates'

This should return: "DB20000I The SQL command completed successfully."

Note: you do not need to restart TPM after running these commands. You might need to wait for a couple of minutes before the MBO will get updated after the database update.

Then follow this procedure:

1. Click Go To > Administration > Provisioning > Provisioning Workflows.

2. Search for the provisioning workflow.

3. In the search results, click the name of the provisioning workflow that you want to view.

Results:

The provisioning workflow is displayed in the provisioning workflow composer. You can edit the provisioning workflow text now.
