  • Scoping Workflows to a platform (Linux or Windows) now results in proper filtering when choosing to run a Workflow against a workload. Windows Workflows are not shown as an option for Linux workloads, for example

  • When a Workflow has a Task in the Configuration phase and that Workflow is referenced in a Workflow Policy, it is executed as expected during the Configuration phase on Instance provision
