In order to add extra functionality to console, you can upload different business processes (a.k.a. Workflows) that can be found in Soffid download area and enable or disable existing ones. Existing process definition can be updated by uploading a new version.

Workflows to be deployed are very dependent on the business processes. Nevertheless, there are some workflows that any Soffid IAM installation would need and are recommended:

  •  add-agent-wf: Necessary to attach sync servers and proxys. (Already installed with console).

  •  purge-process: Workflow used to archive already finished processes.

  •  read-logs: Utility workflow to retrieve console log files.

Deploy a workflow

To install those processes you have to access to the Soffid web Console to the next page:

  • Start > Soffid Configuration > Business process definition

  • Clicking on Deploy button will open a new window

  • Select the Workflow definition file (.par extension) and click on upload button


After successfully upload the process, the workflow will appear depending on of the user authorizations configured in the workflow.

  • In the Console you could find the workflow in the menu: Start > Processes and tasks > New Process > THE WORKFLOW
  • In the Selfservice portal you could find the workflow in the menu: Start > New Process > THE WORKFLOW

Disable/enable a workflow

If you want unpublish a workflow from the final users, you could do it with the buttom .

After that, the workflows is not displayed, but you can retrieve it, first with listing it with the option 

and then you could publish again with the button .

Configure document repository

Soffid can use any document repository to store documents generated by workflows, reporting addon, or any other addon.

The document repository can be either a local directory or a remote one accessed using FTP, SMB, HTTP protocols. Depending on the protocol selected, additional parameters may be needed.
