Installing Winshuttle Journal Entry in a Winshuttle Central Environment

The following steps only apply if you need to install Winshuttle Journal Entry in your Winshuttle Central environment.

  1. Copy the Winshuttle Central Plugin for JE to the SharePoint server where Winshuttle Central is installed.
  2. In the JECentralPlugin folder, run the batch (.cmd) file as an administrator that is appropriate to the SharePoint version and the SharePoint Experience version to which Journal Entry is being installed:
    • For SharePoint 2010: DeploySolutionJEPluginwsp.cmd
    • For SharePoint 2013: DeploySolutionJEPluginWSP2013.cmd
    • For SharePoint 2013 with SharePoint 2010 Experience mode: DeploySolutionJEPluginWSP20132010Mode.cmd

    NOTE: If you would like to isolate your Winshuttle Central with JE instance from other instances of Winshuttle Central, consider creating a new Web Application or separate Site Collection.

  • ReviewWorkflow

These workflows should be associated with the following libraries:

  • JE Data Templates Library: This library contains files that are submitted by JE Author. AuthorWorkflow will be implemented on this library
  • JE Data Files Library: When a JE Runner opens a Central data template (submitted by an Author), and then resubmits the file with related data, The file will be submitted to the "JE Data Files" library. On this library you can implement either a NoReview or ReviewWorkflow workflow. Note that these workflows must be uploaded before they can be used.
