The release of Workflow 7.5 revolutionizes the concept of community-based documentation by creating component wiki pages for every component included in Workflow. This new component wiki model makes structured, community-based content available at its point of use.

You can access these component pages in the articles section of the Endpoint Management Community. You can also access these component pages from within Workflow Designer that shipped with ServiceDesk 7.5. Once Workflow 7.5 is released, you can access the component pages from within the Workflow Designer.

As a member of the Workflow community, you can earn Symantec Connect points and help others in the Workflow community by adding your knowledge, use cases, and examples to the wiki pages for the components that you use

Symantec will continually add content to these pages. However, we encourage you to submit ideas, use cases, and suggestions to help develop the community based articles.

We hope...

As an innovation leader, Symantec has broken new ground again, this time in developer documentation. After an in-depth review of documentation for development frameworks similar to Workflow, we found that the best available documentation is community based. Unfortunately, community-based documentation tends to be both unstructured and difficult to find.  

For the upcoming release of Workflow 7.5, we have revolutionized the concept of community-based documentation by creating component wiki pages for every component included in Workflow. These wiki pages are available inside the Workflow Designer, where Workflow developers need to find it, as part of each component’s Online Help. This new component wiki model makes structured, community-based content available at its point of use.

I used the Code (Script) Component for some minor things and then got to a feature that would be easily solved with a recursive function but hard to solve within only one function.
So I create a simple script with only a return statement (return intext;) and clicked the "View Source Code" button in the "4. Test Page" in the wizard and got something like this:

 

using System;
namespace DynamicNamespace {
public class DynamicClass {
public System.String DynamicMethod(System.String intext)
{
    return intext;
}

Then I realized that I could perhaps "inject" the function that I needed and tested with the code below to see if there where any validator that would stop me from doing this. 
(If you look closely to the code I added an "}" after my function call and then declared my function but excluded the  "}" from the end of the function.)
 

return myFunction(intext);
}
private String myFunction(...

You may notice a few changes in the Endpoint Management Community product names. We've updated the product names to align more closely with what appears on the Symantec.com site as well as the terms that Symantec Support use. Product descriptions have also been updated. These changes offer a better description of what the product does and in some cases indicates a product's End of Life (EOL) status.

All forums and threads are still available and searchable. We hope you find these changes helpful.

As suggested by the title I recently had a problem with MS revoking updates. It seems simple enough, but even though those updates are marked as disabled in the Altiris Database, the Zero-Day Patch workflow still tries to download them. This causes all kinds of problems because when the workflow can't download a patch it crashes. If you are like me you don't want to manually create and manage patches. So what do you do?

1. Figure out what database you are using. This seems simple enough, but if you have dealing with Legacy like we were it can get a little silly. CMDB is the default.

2. Check the correct tables in our case Altiris-2014. I jumped onto our SQL server and ran the following QUERY.

SELECT
TOP 1000 [Guid]
,[Enabled]
FROM [Altiris-2014].[dbo].[ItemActive]
--where Guid in ('41F066A7-0E7E-4BF1-B6A5-195573F9F3D6','BA28B8E2-289A-4FA3-8D6D-...
