You are creating a workflow in UCS Director’s Workflow Designer. You have connected each task’s On Success event in the workflow to the appropriate next task. You now need to connect each task’s On Failure event to the appropriate task.
Which of the following tasks are you most likely to choose?
- completed (success)
- completed (failed)
- the next task in the workflow
Of the available choices, you are most likely to connect each task’s On Failure event to the completed (failed) task. Workflows determine the order in which tasks that are designed to automate complex IT operations are performed. Workflow Designer allows administrators to create workflows that can then be automated by using Unified Computing System (UCS) Director’s orchestrator.
The following Cisco UCS Director’s Workflow Designer tasks are predefined when a workflow is created:
– Completed (failed)
– Completed (success)
The start task is the beginning of the workflow. The completed (failed) task represents the end of a workflow when the desired result could not be achieved. The completed (success) task represents a successfully completed workflow. Each task in a workflow processes input and produces output that is sent to the next task in the workflow. In addition, each task contains an On Success event and an On Failure event that can be used to determine which task should be performed next based on whether the task could be successfully completed. On Success events should be connected to the next task in the workflow. On Failure events, on the other hand, should be connected to the completed (failed) task so that the workflow does not attempt to perform more tasks that would rely on successful output from the previously failed task.
