Associate a workflow to a SharePoint list using Powershell

Filed under: SharePoint — Tags: , , — kctnpblog @ 1:56 am

This script will associate one of the out of the box Disposition Approval workflows to a list.
This code requires the SharePoint Powershell Profile to be loaded beforehand


#Include the additional dll references required
[Void] [System.Reflection.Assembly]:: LoadWithPartialName("System")
[Void] [System.Reflection.Assembly]:: LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow")

#open the web
$web=Get-SPWeb -webUrl "http://moss";

#list to which the workflow is to be associated
$list=$web.Lists["MyList"];

#create workflow association object
$culture=new-object System.Globalization.CultureInfo("en-AU");
$basetemplate = $web.WorkflowTemplates.GetTemplateByName("Disposition Approval",$culture);
$wftasklist=$web.Lists["Workflow Tasks"];
$wfhistorylist=$web.Lists["Workflow History"];
$wfAssoc=[Microsoft.SharePoint.Workflow.SPWorkflowAssociation]:: CreateListAssociation($basetemplate,"Disposition Approval",$wftasklist,$wfhistorylist);

#associate workflow to list
$list.AddWorkflowAssociation($wfAssoc);
$list.Update();

#cleanup and end
$web.Dispose();
