testing workflows

Murali Naidu 4 months ago • updated 4 months ago 2

Hi Guys

I think in the warewolf we do not have a feature to test our own workflows with the expected results/outputs.

So in a bigger picture whenever I update the workflow, I am not being able to identify which ones are affected and not sure weather the results are still valid.

In order to avoid if we have a feature in warewolf to create a test suite where we can add scenarios with the asserts to check my workflows are still producing same results. this helps for testing the workflows and saves lot of time and money instead of using other tools to test. hope this is a valid suggestion

We actually already have this feature in Warewolf. You can check out this knowledge base article to get familiar with it

Build Instructions ?

mpalladi 1 year ago • updated by Genie 1 year ago 1

I tried following https://warewolf.io/knowledge-base/articles/how-to-build-warewolf-from-source/, but it refers to VS2012/13. Is this out of date ? I downloaded from git, and also tried the poweshell compile script but it requires MSBuild 15.0 . Is there more up to date instructions ?

Genie 1 year ago

Hi mpalladi ,

Thanks for logging this issue. We recently updated to using Visual Studio 2015 and will be updating the documentation to reflect this. Please refer to the Readme section of the Github page for the new requirements. In particular the following:

Compiling Warewolf requires at least Visual Studio 2017 with the ".NET desktop development" and "ASP.NET and web development" workloads and the "F# language support" individual component also installed.

Thanks again for bringing this to our attention.


Acceptation of model-driven software

Merijn Kleinreesink 2 years ago • updated by Michael Warne 2 years ago 3

Hello everybody,

First of all, I'm new to this forum, so I'll give a short introduction about myself. My name is Merijn, I'm a 20 year old. I'm busy with graduating on my Bachelor's degree in Business and IT at the University of Twente in the Netherlands.

I'm currently working on my graduation project that tries to predict the acceptance of model-driven software.  In this context you can think about technology acceptance models such as the Universal Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology or the Technology Acceptance Model. In my project I've adapted some of these models to fit the characteristics of model-driven software, and I'm curious if you, users and developers of the  perfect example of this kind of software, want to share your opinion in a survey I have set up. The results of the survey will lead to a better idea why someone should use model-driven software. Your opinion will show whether the proposed research model is the right fit for these type of software applications.

If you prefer a physical PDF of the survey, please leave a comment and I'll send it to you. The digital survey can be found by clicking on the following link:


 The survey will take around five minutes and the results will be completely anonymised and just used for the purpose of the research. 

If you have any questions about the research, feel free to show it in a comment. I'll do my best to answer them!

Hi Merijn, we'd be happy to help! I have shared your survey within our team so you should get a few responses back shortly. All the best with your graduation project!


PostgreSQL and MySQL

Anonymous 2 years ago • updated by Pieter 2 years ago 8


I have a question regarding PostgreSQL and MySQL. I have a database in MySQL for now and a stored procedure to insert data. Despite the fact everything is good, and user have authenticated access over procedure, Warewolf seems cannot list the procedure.

Here are the details of procedure:

CREATE PROCEDURE rfidautomatic_INSERT(IN uid varchar(45))
insert into webtest.rfid_uid (rfiduid) values (uid);

You can use the "Include File" option on the Javascript tool.


An internal error occurred while executing the service request

Retuza 2 years ago • updated by Grommit 2 years ago 5

I download warewolf and get error:

An internal error occurred while executing the service request

The workflow must have at least one service or activity connected to the Start Node.

I run in Windows 7 and 8.1 what is wrong


Continuous deployment?

Anonymous 3 years ago • updated by Gandalf 3 years ago 2

How does your platform support continuous deployment. I see no unit testing capabilities to ensure system stability.


wanto start using warewolf

Gerhard1991 3 years ago • updated by Gandalf 3 years ago 2

I would like to build custom tool connectors. What area of the code base do you suggest I start from/learn to do this in the most efficient way?

Gandalf 3 years ago

Hi Gerhard,

I would suggest reading http://warewolf.io/knowledge-base/tools-and-data-connectors/ to get an overview of how to start. Then you can move onto http://warewolf.io/knowledge-base/activities/ for the next steps.

These two articles should give a good theoretical and practical overview of building tool connectors, should show which projects and classes inside the code base that you can follow to see how they are developed.

Hope this helps. Please let us know if you require further assistance.
