Welcome to the Learning Center
Workflow Studio is the process designer and developer tool for the EmpowerID workflow platform, a team-based rapid development environment for creating federated applications, system connectors, web services, and workflow applications. Workflow Studio is the tool used by the EmpowerID development team to create the product modules. Both Workflow Studio and the EmpowerID platform services come with any purchased EmpowerID module and grant customers the same power as our product team to develop secure solutions.
Organizations can also leverage the workflow design studio to encapsulate their own code into this reusable drag and drop model and mix and match them with any of hundreds of out-of-the-box workflow activities provided with EmpowerID. As a result, development and deployment of applications are faster, they are a better match to business requirements, and they can be reconfigured rapidly when the business process changes.
Workflows run on the EmpowerID workflow services which are the hosting components responsible for managing the execution of EmpowerID’s Windows Workflow Foundation applications in large, distributed environments. The workflow server is distributable, scalable, and capable of handling the most demanding, high-volume environments. It supports any number of workflow servers running in parallel at one time or distributed across firewall boundaries with secure encrypted web services communication as well as automatic load-balancing and failover.
The EmpowerID workflow platform stores all workflows and their components in the metadirectory and the workflow servers download the latest workflow versions, running them locally. This hub-and-spoke architecture ensures that all workflow servers can process any new or old version of a workflow side-by-side on the same server.
