Configuring Winshuttle Workflow Central Administration

Before using Central Administration, you must first configure user permissions to enable users to access the site. (The default installation of CA is configured so that no one has permission to access the site.)

To enable users to access the Central Administration site:

  1. Open the web.config file located at \Program Files\ShareVis\admin\Web.config.
  2. Under the authorization section, uncomment and delete the "Add your list…" note (about lines 9-12).
  3. In its place, add an Allow section with a domain-qualified list of the people to be allowed access to the CA site like the one displayed below:


    <allow users="domain1\user1" />

    <allow users="domain1\user2" />

    <deny users="*" />


    Note: The Allow section must occur before the Deny section.

Starting Winshuttle Workflow Central Administration

Back to top

Winshuttle Workflow Central Administration can be installed by the installer whenever you perform a new installation or an upgrade. The Installer creates a new IIS virtual server on port 54073 by default and creates a new item to launch the Web site in your Start menu.

To start Winshuttle Workflow CA from the Start menu, click All Programs, then Winshuttle Workflow, and then click Central Administration.

Note: Workflow Central Administration should be run in Classic .NET AppPool.

To run Winshuttle Central Administration in classic .Net AppPool:

  1. Click Start.
  2. Under Connections, click Workflow CENTRAL Administration.
  3. Under Manage Web Site, click Advanced Settings.
  4. Click Behavior. In the Application pool dialog box, select Classic.NET AppPool.
  5. Click OK.

Check/configure ASP.NET

Back to top

If you get an error when you attempt to start Winshuttle Central Administration, check the version of ASP.NET that the virtual server is configured to use.

Do the following:

  1. Open IIS Manager.
  2. Find the Central Administration virtual server.
  3. Open the Properties for the Central Administration virtual server.
  4. Open the ASP.NET tab.
  5. Select the 2.0 version of ASP.NET that you have installed on your server.

    Note: If you have installed SharePoint 2013, then select version 4.0 of ASP.NET.

  6. Make sure Default.aspx is a default page name.
