Use activation description in pub/sub RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can anyone confirm that the only way to set up instance activation of a workflow in a pub/sub context is to assign a SubscriptionActivationDescription to the ActivationDescription property of the WorkflowDescription used to publish the workflow. That I can define BuildMatchAllFilter and ReceiveNotification in the the activity description (XAML) to 'subscribe' to notifications once the instance exists makes me wonder why instance activation is not also part possible.

    I noticed that has a note that says "activation information is specified outside of the workflow". I would just like to understand why.
