Deploy Workflow Change to Existing Folders

Made document security changes to workflow state in Adminstrator.  Existing folders with this workflow don't reflect the changs.  New folders do.  For existing folders I've tried removing and replacing the workflow and removing and replacing the workflow as a project resource. 

please help

  • Neil,

    The workflow security settings in PW Administrator only apply 'default' or 'seed' settings for new folders. They do not change any settings for folders already assigned to a workflow.

    I would recommend using the csv/excel import functions from the 'Access Control' tab in PW Explorer but this does need some experimentation with the depth levels to apply. It can also wipe out any folder permissions already assigned. Try it on a test folder structure or system first!

    Hope that helps
