AEM 6.4 - Could not find model for workflow dam-xmp-writeback

sofiyans8042875 02-07-2018

Hi All,

On migrating for AEM 6.2 to 6.4 , Dam asset version is not getting created, getting the below error

*ERROR* [Workflow Starter Thread] com.adobe.granite.workflow.core.launcher.WorkflowLauncherListener ERROR: Could not find model /etc/workflow/models/dam-xmp-writeback/jcr:content/model, cannot execute launcher /conf/global/settings/workflow/launcher/config/dam_xmp_writeback for content path

I have copied the workflow model from 6.2 to 6.4 on the path /etc/workflow/models/dam-xmp-writeback . The workflow model is present is the location but still getting the same error.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards

Sofiyan

Hi,

You need to put inside /var/ folder.

This is something weird but workflows are getting picked up from /var/ in AEM 6.4

Thanks

This should help you understand it more: Refer to point 6, we need to export both conf and var and integrate to project

Adobe Experience Manager Help | Common Repository Restructuring in AEM 6.4

Restructuring guidance

Any new or modified Workflow Models must be migrated to /conf/global/workflow/models.

  1. Deploy the modified Workflow Models into a local AEM 6.4 development instance, such that they exist in the Previous location.
  2. Edit the Workflow Model using AEM's Workflow Model Editor at AEM > Tools > Workflow > Models.
  3. When migrating modified AEM-provided Workflow Models
    1. With the Workflow Model Editor open, modify the browser's address URL, and replace the path segment /libs/settings/workflow/models with /etc/workflow/models.
  4. Enable Edit mode in the Workflow Model Editor which will copy the Workflow Model definition to /conf/global/workflow/models.
  5. Tap the Sync button to sync the changes to the Runtime Workflow Model under /var/workflow/models.
  6. Export both the Workflow Model (/conf/global/workflow/models/<workflow-model>) and Runtime Workflow Model (/var/workflow/models/<workflow-model>) and integrate into the AEM project.
    1. For example, export:
      • /config/settings/workflow/models/dam/my_workflow_model
        and
      • /var/workflow/models/dam/my_workflow_model

I tried putting the launcher and model under /conf/global/settings/workflow but still the same issue.

Cannot found the model under /conf/global/settings/workflow/model

Hi,

I checked same and found below:

Legacy location is used if present and no configuration

exists in /libs or /conf locations. This way, custom workflow models are preserved.

All/etc/workflow/models

/libs/settings/workflow/models

/conf/global/settings/workflow/models

globalLegacy location is used if present and no configuration
exists in /libs or /conf locations. This way, custom workflow models are preserved.

All workflow models should be moved from the legacy /etc location to /conf/global/settings/workflow/models.

Hi Arun,

Thank you for your quick response.

As per the Repository Restructuring in AEM 6.4, its recommend to have all workflows under /var, but it stated that AEM 6.4 support backward compatibility. So we keep the models under /etc for our project.

Hi,

in AEM 6.4 all workflows are placed inside /var/workflow/models.

You need to change workflow model location to /var/ folder instead of /etc/

Thanks
