The documentation for the 'Workflow system' is not there yet. Where can i find/try out the workflow that RalphNG supports in the demo installation?

@cosmo222 not sure about that. maybe @romcheg knows something about it?
@tretos53 show me the output of dpkg -l "ralph-"
@tretos53 I suppose you've seen the dc visualization ? it shows green/red bars
@onibox we have some documentation regarding workflows
@onibox the thing is, we call them "transitions" ;-)

@onibox but, well, the documentation really covers more advanced scenario, when you want to customize workflow in code
the simple scenario is really trivial and can be covered in one screen:
transition is the action which is run on specific model, such as data center asset

you can run "change rack" action

where is it defined? here - in transition models bound to "data center asset"

you see custom action defined by the user, which can be only run, when data center asset in the specific status
new, free, or to-deploy
when it's run successfully - Ralph changes status to "in use"

during this process, particular additional action can be chosen, from simple one-field forms such as "change hostname" which requires entering particular field (hostname)

you can plug any action such as: generating pdf, deploying, etc

and you can also plug your own code, and this documentation we have, covers exactly that
