CCWWFA: Creating and Customizing Workflows Using OnCommand Workflow Automation


Duration: 2.0 days

This course shows new storage architects how to use OnCommand® Workflow Automation (OnCommand WFA) to eliminate error-prone manual processes for storage management in their organizations. The course describes how to design and customize workflows to meet organizations’ storage requirements. The course also describes how to create design elements, such as commands, finders, data sources, and functions. Finally, the course provides an overview of REST APIs and the NetApp PowerShell Toolkit and how this toolkit integrates with OnCommand WFA.
