On Microsoft’s Instructional Video Set on Installing and Configuring Workflow Manager 1.0 for SharePoint Server 2013

The following points summarize the installation and configuration procedures demonstrated in the next two video episodes in this series on Installing and Configuring Workflow Manager 1.0 for SharePoint Server 2013

Episode 4: Install and Configure Workflow Manager Client

  1. Open Remote Desktop, navigate to SharePoint Server 2013 and login as the SharePoint Administrator
  2. Once logged in, open a browser session and visit the Microsoft Resource Center. Install the Workflow Manager Client. Be sure to qualify your search by noting Workflow Manager running on a separate server and SSL encrypted traffic to obtain the correct client. For this procedure you will download the client and install using a local “run” command
  3. Once the “Run” request has been authenticated for your login as SharePoint Administrator, the Web Platform Installer 4.5 process will begun to install the Workflow Manager client on SharePoint Server 2013
  4. On the client has been installed on the SharePoint 2013 Server, return to the Microsoft Resource Center and check for any updates. Download and run the most recent updates available

Episode 5: Configure the SharePoint Farm with the Workflow Farm (Pair the SharePoint Farm to Work With the Workflow Farm)

  1. Log into the SharePoint Server as the SharePoint Administrator
  2. Open a browser and visit the Microsoft Resource Center visited earlier, on several occasions, in this procedure comprising 6 episodes
  3. Select the Configuration scenario where Workflow Manager is running on a separate server from SharePoint 2013 and the data communications traffic uses HTTP (for SSL, encrypted sessions) and copy the specific SharePoint Administrative Shell Commandlet provided to configure (pair) the SharePoint Farm and the Workflow Manager Farm for this architecture
  4. Verify there are no problems accessing either the SharePoint 2013 Server, or the Workflow Manager Server using an SSL URL with a browser (you will need to add the Workflow Manager site as a “trusted site” for the browser to successfully complete this step
  5. Next run the “Pairing Commandlet” from the SharePoint Administrative Shell (be sure to right click the icon for this tool and select to “run as an administrator”) (the video includes the correct shell syntax to run the Commandlet)
