[PSS 2017] Workflows

Post by Bosparan »


I've recently had to mess with Workflows.
Workflows are fantastic for some tasks, especially when it comes to ensuring sequential tasks survive reboots and other sources of sudden interruptions as frequently happen on a client machine.

Now ... somehow PSS doesn't appear to really support Workflows:
- Automatic parameter transformations do not happen
- Workflow cmdlets are still treated as PowerShell cmdlets
- Workflow-specific commands (such as Suspend-Workflow) do not appear at all.

I realize that full workflow support isn't something trivial to approach. I'd be in favor though, especially given the community response on whether to carry it over into PowerShell core.
