25.1 About the Workflow Administration Plug-in

The Workflow Administration plug-in to iManager provides a browser-based interface that lets you view the status of workflow processes, reassign activities within a workflow, or terminate a workflow in the event that it is stopped and cannot be restarted.

You can find the Workflow Administration plug-in in the Identity Manager category in iManager. The plug-in includes the Workflows task in the Workflow Administration role.

The Workflow Administration role also includes the Email Templates and Email Server Options tasks. These tasks are shortcuts to other tasks listed under the Passwords role.
