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.

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-...

After upgrading from SMP7.5 to 7.5P1 on our production setup (which has SQL server offbox) one niggle was that IT Analytics stopped working. All console users were presented with this error,

An error has occurred during report processing. (rsProcessingAborted)
Cannot impersonate user for data source 'ITAnalytics'. (rsErrorImpersonatingUser)
Log on failed. Ensure the user name and password are correct. (rsLogonFailed)

After rechecking our settings in the console, we couldn't understand the root cause. Logging in directly to the SQL server and trying to access the reports through the report url, http://localhost/reports, resulted in the same error.

After playing a bit with permissions and getting nowhere, I found this tech article, "TECH213502: Error accessing...
