Please refer to the Installing Modules article for a walkthrough explanation.

The following list consists of all the Decisions-built modules as well as those on GitHub available for installation. Before installing, read the description of the desired module, and ensure all prerequisites are met to meet intended functionalities.

Active Directory Module

The Active Directory module introduces new Flow steps that allow users to build Flows centered around managing the Active Directory such as creating users, groups, associations, and more.

Approvals Module

The Approvals module offers several pre-built Flows that are primarily used for tracking request and approval activity within an organization. Approvals offer both basic and comprehensive Flows that scale from simple approvals to handling multi-level, parallel, or tracked approvals, and more. Designers can use the Approval Flows in their own workflow directly, as a subflow, or simply as a model to base a new design on. After installing the Approvals Module, a suite of new pre-built Flow options will become available.

For additional information or help on getting started with Approvals in Decisions, please refer to the documents listed below.

Docker Module

This module requires an Enterprise level license to use
Due to this, the Docker Module is a restricted use module that requires the Designer to contact the Decisions Support Team to enable it.

The Docker module allows certain Rules and Flows to run in managed containers.  This feature is currently limited and only compatible with certain parts of Decisions. Specifically, the current Docker can only run containerized Rules or Flows with no UI elements, such as Forms, within AWS containers.

Docusign Module

The Docusign module introduces new Flow steps to send documents to Docusign that capture electronic signatures and initials. The steps are limited to using X,Y positioning on the document for marking signature locations. Additionally, Docusign’s “Tag” feature indicates areas in the document that require signatures. 

Once a document is sent to Docusign through a Decisions workflow, the Wait On External Event step monitors Docusign to pull the document back to the Flow once it completes.

Please note that these steps are only tested with MS SCCM 2012.

The SCCM Module offers settings and Flow steps used to integrate with Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager for automating IT management tasks. These additional features can be used in Flows to send Task Sequences to machine collections in order to automate common system management functions. An example of this would be an IT person installing software updates for company computers after a manager approves the updates using the Decisions Flow engine. These additional steps can be found in the Step Catalog under the SCCM Steps section.

Sharepoint Module

The Sharepoint module offers steps for handling lists and documents in Sharepoint. This module is not required to embed Decisions Forms, Flows, and user-driven Workflows into Sharepoint; however, it is necessary if wishing to grant the Flow Engine the ability to access, update, and modify lists or documents in Microsoft Sharepoint.

SymantecSMP Module

The Symantec Management Platform is a system for central IT administration and system management activity like software deployment, or updating computer configurations across an enterprise. Decisions offers Flow steps that allows the Designer to add workflows based around the Symantec Management Platform. An example of this would be if a user assigned tasks to a manager using our workflow; once approved, the user could activate a management activity in Symantec Management Platform to deliver software or update a computer.
