Question, Issue

Every time DAM assets are activated DAM workflows run on publish adding unnecessary load to the publish server. Can those workflows be disabled and how?

Answer, Resolution

DAM workflows that process assets under /content/dam are enabled on every CQ5.3 instance by default. However, in most cases these assets have already been processed on author and therefor DAM workflows can be disabled on publish.

To disable DAM workflows on publish set "enabled" property to false on each of the following Workflow Launcher nodes in CRX Content Explorer:

/etc/workflow/launcher/config/dam_update_var_file_create
/etc/workflow/launcher/config/dam_update_var_folder_create
/etc/workflow/launcher/config/dam_update_var_folder_del
/etc/workflow/launcher/config/delete_asset_content_dam
/etc/workflow/launcher/config/metadata_set_lastmodified
/etc/workflow/launcher/config/update_asset_create
/etc/workflow/launcher/config/update_asset_mod

 

Alternatively you can install the package attached to this article.
