Flux Cockpit in Flux 8.0.13 has a menu option on the Designer Tab that allows for converting certain Flux 7 workflows to Flux 8 formats. Flux 8 has removed messaging support and BPM support, and workflows using these features cannot be converted using this approach. The other major change from Flux 7 to Flux 8 is in the File Criteria format, and this conversion utility supports migrating Flux 7 File Criterias to Flux 8 Format.

  • Open Flux Cockpit.
  • Click the Repository Tab.
  • Click the Upgrade button.
  • A File Dialog will appear that allows to to navigate to the directory containing the workflows and select the FFC files to convert. These FFC files must have been exported from a Flux 7 environment to disk.
