About workflow rule configuration

You configure rules in Event Console through tabs on the Event Console Alert Rule Settings page.

The Workflow Rules tab lets you add, edit, enable, and delete workflow rules. Only the rules that are marked as On (enabled) are actively processed when Event Console receives new alerts.

See Running a task in response to an alert.

See About the Event Console workflow rule.

Event Console makes use of the Workflow Directory API. This API provides a complete list of available, deployed workflows. The API also specifies which workflow entry points are designed to be launched without a form interface; that is, by process. The entry point details include a Category field. This field lets Event Console determine if a Workflow rule calls the entry point, by design. Once complete, only the rules that are in the Process Start, Event Console category appear in the workflow selection drop-down list.

The workflow rule is secured with the following Symantec Management Platform security permissions:

  • Enable Workflow Rules. This permission lets you enable and disable existing Workflow rule items in the Alert Rule Settings page.

  • Modify Workflow Rules. This permission allows users to create, edit, and delete workflow rule items in the Alert Rule Settings page.

See Adding or editing workflow rules.
