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. Test a workflow

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

  3. Run a specific onboarding workflow on an employee

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

How to manually run a workflow?

In order to manually run a workflow you should click the Run manually button which can be found in:

  • The Workflows table page, when hovering on 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 the select the user for the workflow execution.

Click Run now to trigger the workflow.

View workflow audit log

  1. Click View workflow audit log from the following dialog page

  2. In the workflows table, click the number in the "Triggered" column
