Remote Engine

When to use a Remote Engine

By default, a workflow that is built using AppTree Workflow is run in AppTree's hosted environment. However, sometimes you may need to execute a step that requires accessing data on your own enterprise servers. For instance, if you need to connect to a database or filesystem. To accomplish this, you must install and register a Remote Engine.

Remote Engines provide a secure way for you to run steps in your own environment, without having to open up database or FTP access to your enterprise servers.

To get started, begin by installing a remote engine on your server.‚Äč
