Select a workflow and trigger it immediately

Torii workflows are automatically triggered when their trigger matches the configured criteria. You can read more on how workflows are automatically triggered here.

In some cases, you might want to run a workflow manually. Here are some scenarios:

  1. Testing a workflow

  2. Asking a user to fill in an app security questionnaire again

  3. Running a specific onboarding workflow on an employee

  4. Running a license management workflow on employees who missed the trigger window

How to manually run a workflow

In order to manually run a workflow, click the Run manually button (▶️ icon) which can be found in the following places.

  • In the Workflows table, while hovering over a specific workflow row

  • When editing a workflow

  • When completing a workflow

Providing trigger inputs

After clicking Run manually, a popup dialog will appear, asking to fill in the required details to trigger the workflow.

Since the workflow is being manually triggered, it might need additional inputs in order to execute on the right target entities. The input field(s) depends on the workflow trigger type.

For example, when running a workflow with a User meets criteria trigger, the following dialog will show up, asking you to select the user for the workflow execution.

Click Run now to trigger the workflow.

View workflow audit log

Once the workflow has run, you can view its audit log in one of two ways:

  1. Click View Logs in the dialog that appears after initiating the manual workflow run.

  2. Or, in the Workflows table, click the number in the "Triggered" column or the status in the "Last Status" column.


Why is the "Run manually" button sometimes disabled?

You can only run a workflow that is valid, which means that all workflow trigger conditions and actions have been configured.

  • In the workflows table, an invalid workflow is marked with a red indicator:

  • When editing a workflow, an invalid workflow action configuration is marked with a blue indicator:
