You can run a workflow to install the customized state change workflow stubs and Orchestrator menu operation workflows.


The workflow stubs are replaced by the event broker workflow subscriptions. They are still available, supported, and they can be used, but expect them to be removed in a future version of vRealize Automation. To ensure future product compatibility, you should use the workflow subscriptions to run custom workflows based on state changes. See Configuring Workflow Subscriptions to Extend vRealize Automation.
