How to set up a common WebForms folder for your WorkflowGen instances in a Web Farm setup

If you have a Web Farm setup, you must share the same WebForms folder for all servers. (For information on using a Web Farm setup with WorkflowGen, see the Web Farm architecture section in the WorkflowGen Technical Guide To do this:

  1. Share your WebForms folder. This can be either your primary WorkflowGen site’s local WebForms folder, or a WebForms folder on a network file server.

  2. If you are using a network file server and you have content in your primary WorkflowGen site’s local WebForms folder, we suggest copying the content of this folder to the shared WebForms folder.

  3. Once you have shared the folder, copy the UNC path.

  4. Do the following for each instance of WorkflowGen:

    1. In IIS, navigate to the WebForms application folder.

    2. Right-click on the folder, then choose Manage Application / Advanced Settings .

    3. Replace the physical path with the UNC path you copied in step 3.

    4. Add the <add key="ApplicationWebFormsPath" value="" /> parameter with the UNC path as the value to the web.config file.

      Note: This parameter is currently only used by the SOAP Web Service API to manage processes and requests with the built-in form designer enabled.

  5. Ensure that the required permissions (modify, read and execute, list folder contents, read, write) are correctly applied to the shared WebForms folder for the IIS application pool used by the WebForms application.
