  • Hi Pengzhen, 

    Thanks for the reply. 

    Are app fabric and workflow manager the same? because second link explains about using App Fabric.

    Regarding workflow manager, Do I need re-write my workflow again?

  • They are similar. You can refer to it. And I think you don't need re-write workflow again.

  • Thanks again. Let me provide more details on what I am trying to achieve. I am want to implement approval workflow for SharePoint however the logic is complex such as three level of approvals, every approver will get 5 days to approve. If for any reason approves are changed then new approver time will be reset. After the approvals workflow will call external WCF service. Workflow I have written is a XAMLX workflow and another requirement is to ability to call this workflow by external apps. Since SharePoint 2013 is declarative workflow and logic being complex I built custom workflow in WF 4.5 and since workflow manager 1.0 provides robust environment to host workflows, with most of the workflow is already written I thought of making use of workflow manger. And I don't want rewrite workflow using SharePoint template. That's why the question of hosting XAMLX in workflow manager. Regards RK

  • Hi RK,

    You can use Workflow Manager to host the workflow you developed. Please refer the belo link. It contains detail videos and links on how to create custom activities, create workflow and host the workflow in workflow manager.  However, it just hosts workflow in workflow manager but not as a service.

  • Hi Jabeen,

    Thanks for the response. Yes I agree with you,Workflow Manager hosts the workflow and client who wishes to start the workflow can start using URI of the scope (assuming the workfow is already published). 


    Regards.
