Managing Data in All Organizations: Workflow

  • Dark
    Light

As a Super User, you can view, create, modify, assign, and delete Workflow Tasks, Workflows, Templates, and Cases in all Organizations on your ThreatConnect instance.

Workflow Tasks

The Workflow Tasks screen will display all Tasks in all Cases in all Organizations on your instance, with the Org column indicating the Organization to which each Task belongs (Figure 1).

Graphical user interface, application  Description automatically generated

 

You can use the Owner(s) dropdown menu in the FILTERS selector to select the Organizations you want to include in the Tasks table (Figure 2).

Note
If the Tasks table is blank when you first use your Super User account to access the Tasks screen, this may be because there are no Organizations selected in the Owner(s) menu. Selecting at least one Organization will cause the table to populate (as long as the selected owners contain at least one Case with at least one Task in it).

You can select an assignee for any Task in any Case, but the assignee must belong to the Organization that owns the Case.

Workflows

The Workflows Screen

The Workflows screen will display all Workflows in all Organizations on your instance, with the text at the top left of each Workflow card indicating the Organization to which the Workflow belongs (Figure 3).

Note
If the Workflows table is blank when you first use your Super User account to access the Workflows screen, this may be because there are no Organizations selected in the Owner(s) menu. Selecting at least one Organization will cause the table to populate (as long as the selected owners contain at least one Workflow).

Creating a Workflow

When creating a new Workflow, you must select the Organization that will own the Workflow (Figure 5).

Note
The Default Assignee menu will not populate until you select an owner, because the default assignee must belong to the Organization that owns the Workflow. Similarly, when you assign a Task in the Workflow, the Default Assignee dropdown menu will list only users who are in the Organization that owns the Workflow.

Importing a Workflow

When importing a Workflow, you must select the Organization that will own the Workflow (Figure 6).

Note
In addition to the Validating Workflow and Select Owner steps, you may see steps labeled Variables or Missing Apps. See the “Importing a Workflow” section of Workflows Screen for more information.

Sharing a Workflow across Organizations

As a Super User, you can easily share Workflows across Organizations. On the Workflows screen, select the Duplicate option from the vertical ellipsis menu for a Workflow. Enter a name for the Workflow, and then select the destination Organization from the Select Owner menu (Figure 7).

Toggling this slider off will display all Templates installed at the System level in your ThreatConnect instance.
