As part of my SharePoint Server 2013 setup I sometimes need to integrate the new workflow infrastructure into the farm. I've followed the documentation starting from the SharePoint side of things:
From here I installed and configured the components based on the linked documentation (this part is not SharePoint specific):
- Overview: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj193478.aspx
- Configuration: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj193510.aspx
Based on the information in the SharePoint docs I will have to run the following command to allow communication (for my example I use HTTP on sharepoint and workflow manager):
Register-SPWorkflowService –SPSite "http://collab/" –WorkflowHostUri "http://sp2013-01:12291" –AllowOAuthHttp
Here's the command that worked for my environment where my SharePoint URL is http://sp.apple.com and the Web Front End server where I installed Workflow Manager is named sharepointwfe. Register-SPWorkflowService -SPSite "http://sp.apple.com" -WorkflowHostUri "http://sharepointwfe:12291" -AllowOAuthHttp
Reading the documentation for this cmdlet i'm not sure I have to execute this command for all site collections that should run the on new workflow infrastructure (non SP2010 WF).
Configures the SharePoint host to use a workflow service
SPSite | Required | Microsoft.SharePoint.PowerShell.SPSitePipeBind | Specifies a site collection to configure
- Do i need to execute this command once and the site collection will store some config information?
- or Do i need to run this command on every site collection that should use the new workflow infrastructure?
