  • Hi,

    According to your description, you want know how to install the workflow manager.

    The workflow manager can be installed in either Web Front End or a separate server.

    The installation contains few components:

    • Workflow Manager: This is the host that runs workflows.
    • Workflow Manager Client: It contains the API to allow clients to communicate with Workflow host.
    • Workflow Tool: It needs to be installed in the development server to develop SharePoint 2013 workflow. It supports the workflow development in Visual Studio 2012.

    Workflow Manager client needs to be installed in all servers.

    Best regards.
