Resource elements are external objects that you can import to the Orchestrator server for workflows to use as attributes when they run. For example, a workflow can use an imported XML file that defines a map to convert one type of data to another, or a script that defines a function, when it runs.
Before you begin
Verify that you have the following objects in your Orchestrator server:
An image, script, XML, or HTML file, or any other type of object imported into Orchestrator as a resource element.
A workflow that requires the resource element as an attribute.
- From the drop-down menu in the Orchestrator client, select Design.
- Click the Workflows view.
- Expand the hierarchical tree viewer to navigate to the workflow that requires the resource element as an attribute.
- Right-click the workflow and select Edit.
