Disabling Workflow Actions | HCL Digital Experience

Disable workflow action on servers that do not require workflows to be processed, such as a subscriber. This strategy can improve performance and reduce the number of versions that are created for each item.


  1. Log in to the WebSphere® Integrated Solutions Console.
  2. Click Resources > Resource Environment > Resource Environment Providers > WCM WCMConfigService > Custom properties.
    Cluster note: If you are using this web content server as part of a cluster, ensure that you use the WebSphere® Integrated Solutions Console for the deployment manager when you edit configuration properties.
  3. Add a configuration setting named disableWorkflowAction.
    1. Use a comma to separate the workflow action names that you want to disable. For example: disableWorkflowAction=ScheduledMoveAction1,ScheduledMoveAction2
      Note: Workflow action names are case-sensitive.
    2. To disable all workflow actions on the server, use this setting: disableWorkflowAction=*
  4. Restart the server or cluster.
