Is a Workflow associated with a list included in list or site template?

1 Answer 1


Assuming you are talking about a custom workflow, a workflow is deployed in a solution (which can be farm or web application scoped). In the solution there will be a feature which allows you to activate it on a site collection or a site. The association with the list is stored in the workflow through the Association element.


  • Sorry bad question. What I mean is - if I have a list and create a WF on it and then template the site within SharePoint will the WF be included in the template? Thanks

    I would think so, but why not just try it?
