Workflow Authoring Examples and Samples

The Opalis team is providing some sample Workflows (policies) for customers and partners to help you get started in creating your own workflows in Opalis Integration Server. These Workflows are a combination of Foundation Activities as well as Activities from Integration Packs.

In each article, we’ll describe a specific scenario and how that can be done using Opalis. Workflows will be available as XML that can be imported into the Opalis Workflow Designer. The Workflows can be downloaded from the Opalis site on CodePlex, either in individual XML files, or as a ZIP file with all Workflows included in a single XML file.

We’ll be publishing the articles over time and keeping a list of them here (I’ll update this post periodically with links to the individual examples). The XML will be posted to CodePlex separately (and typically in groups of Workflows).

The links below point to the articles about each of the Workflows available. (article titles become active links when the article is published).

There are two “categories” of Workflows:

  • Authoring Examples tend to be smaller workflows with documentation that explain the Workflows step-by-step. They are designed to highlight the use of the Foundation Activities and/or design principles in Opalis.
  • Workflow Samples tend to be more complex, often looking more like an entire solution. They are designed as solution patterns for our customers and partners. Most won’t run out of the box (they require too much editing/pre-configuration for this to be possible).


You can download a ZIP file containing all of the workflow import files here:
