Installing BPM Webflow applications

To install one or more BPM Webflow applications:
1. In the Administration module, click Applications > BPM Webflow.
The BPM Webflow Applications page appears with a list of all current BPM Webflow applications.
2. Select a status from the Status drop-down list and click Go to display only the applications having the selected status.
The BPM Webflow Applications page contains information on:
*Status, indicating the current status of the application. Options include Installed, and Uninstalled.
*Name, or the name assigned by the developer when defining the process template in OpenEdge.
*Label, or the name users see in Business Process Portal. The developer defines this name as the Label when designing the process template in OpenEdge.
*Description, providing a brief description of the application. If required, then you can define the description as a text link to a lengthier, more detailed description.
3. Select the BPM Webflow application you wish to install from the list by selecting it, and click Install. For more details about this operation, see Selecting and clearing rows.
Business Process Server installs the selected BPM Webflow application(s).
Note: You may also install and uninstall BPM Webflow applications in OpenEdge. Select Project > Publish from the Servers view in Progress Developer Studio for OpenEdge. For more information, see the OpenEdge Getting Started: Developing BPM Applications with Developer Studio.
Once a BPM Webflow application is installed, the Webflow becomes one of two processes: a workstep within a BPM Webflow process.
