Development vs Production in 0365

Jump to solution

So I developed a workflow and once it was what the customer wanted I made It a production workflow. And they are now using it. So what is best practices to make updates to that workflow without interrupting production?

Also when making changes to a workflow in production how do the workflows in progress react to it? Would they complete using the previous workflow?

Hi Joe,

Once a workflow instance starts, changes to the definition will not affect it, new instances will start using the latest published version.

Many users I've spoken with use this sort of approach:

  • Have a development/test & a production site
  • Often use scripts/migration tools/other tools to keep the lists/content types and other structure in sync from dev -> prod
  • Once a workflow change is tested, export from dev/test site and import into production, along with any structure changes.

Let me know if this helps

Callum
