Install Workflow Manager Server

ArcGIS Workflow Manager Server can be installed on its own machine or on the hosting server machine. For production deployments, it is recommended that you install ArcGIS Workflow Manager Server on its own machine. To install ArcGIS Workflow Manager Server on its own machine, ArcGIS Server must be installed on that same machine but does not need to be licensed as a GIS server. The ArcGIS Workflow Manager Server license provides access to only the ArcGIS Workflow Manager Server capability on the machine.

When migrating from the ArcGIS Workflow Manager (Classic) extension to the Workflow Manager service-based architecture, the Workflow Manager Server role must be installed and licensed.
