Using System Center 2012 – Service Manager, you can automate many administrative processes that previously required manual tasks. The feature that makes this automation possible is the Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) workflow. A WF workflow comprises workflow activities, which are also referred to as WF activities to differentiate them from other Service Manager activity types. Each workflow activity performs a function, such as joining a user or a computer to a group in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), creating a Service Manager incident, or running a script. You can assemble WF activities into a workflow that performs a set of tasks, and you can specify the conditions under which the workflow runs.
