Installing a workflow

Workflows are installed in the workflow manager (for information about installing a workflow on the CLC Genomics Server, please see the user manual at

        Help | Manage Workflows (Image WorkflowManage_16_n_p)

or press the "Workflows" button (Image workflows_16_n_p) in the toolbar and then select "Manage Workflow..." (Image WorkflowManage_16_n_p).

This will display a dialog listing the installed workflows. To install an existing workflow, click Install from File and select a workflow .cpw file (see how to create a workflow installer in Creating a workflow installation file).

Once installed, it will appear in the workflow manager as shown in figure 9.41.

If the workflow was bundled with data, installing it on the workbench will ask you for a location to put the bundled data. Installing a workflow with bundled data on a server, the data will be put in a folder created in the first writeable persistence location.
