Configuring Workflow Manager Server with an ArcGIS Enterprise portal

Workflow Manager のライセンスで利用可能。

After you have installed ArcGIS Workflow Manager Server, created a server site, and registered an ArcGIS Web Adaptor with it, you can configure the site with an ArcGIS Enterprise portal. You must federate the server site with the portal and designate it as the portal's Workflow Manager Server.

Federate the Workflow Manager Server site with the portal

You must federate the Workflow Manager Server site so that it can authenticate ArcGIS Enterprise portal members and allow them to access Workflow Manager.


Workflow Manager Server cannot function as the hosting server for a portal; you must have already federated an ArcGIS Server and designated it as the portal's hosting server. When you federate a Workflow Manager Server site with the portal, ensure that the portal and the hosting server are running ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8.1 or later.

When you federate a server with your portal, the portal's security store controls access to the server. Access to the Workflow Manager Web App is determined by portal members, roles, and sharing permissions.

Complete these steps to federate a Workflow Manager Server site with a portal:

  1. If you're federating a Workflow Manager Server that uses a wildcard security certificate, import the root certificate into your portal before federating.

    If the portal only has a wildcard certificate for the federated server, it cannot validate the certificate CNAME or publish services and perform some other operations.

  2. Sign in to the Portal for ArcGIS website as an administrator and go to Organization > Settings > Servers.

    You must connect to the ArcGIS Enterprise portal through the ArcGIS Web Adaptor URL (such as Do not use the internal URL on port 7443.

  3. Click Add Server.
  4. Provide the following information:
    • Services URL—The URL used by external users when accessing the Workflow Manager Server site.

      If the site includes Portal for ArcGIS, the URL includes the Portal for ArcGIS address, for example, The federation operation performs a validation check to determine if the provided services URL is accessible from the server site. If the validation check fails, a warning is generated in the Portal for ArcGIS. However, federation will not fail if the services URL is not validated, as the URL may not be accessible from the server site, such as when the server site is behind a firewall.

    • Administration URL—The URL used for accessing the ArcGIS Server when performing administrative operations on the internal network, for example,
    • Username—The name of the primary site administrator account you provided when installing Workflow Manager Server.
    • Password—The password of the primary site administrator account.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Click Save to save the federated server settings.

You will need to restart the Workflow Manager service after setting up Workflow Manager Server.

Designate the portal's workflow server

Once your Workflow Manager Server site has been federated, designate it as the workflow server for the portal. This allows portal members to access Workflow Manager Server through the Workflow Manager Web App.

  1. Sign in to the ArcGIS Enterprise portal as an administrator of your organization.
  2. Click Organization at the top of the site.
  3. Click Edit Settings.
  4. Click Servers.
  5. At the bottom of the Servers page, locate the Workflow Manager Server row. Click the drop-down list and choose your Workflow Manager Server site.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Restart the Workflow Manager Server service using the Windows Services console.
