Workflow Builder requests a new Case Management framework version

If your users can't publish a new app with Workflow Builder and get a warning showing the disparity of versions, you need to update the Case Management framework. The users get a message saying this, and showing them the disparity of versions.

To update the Case Management framework, perform the following steps:

  1. Manually install the latest version of Case Management Framework available on the OutSystems Forge.

  2. Manually refresh the dependencies of apps already generated, or re-generate them with Workflow Builder to tackle potential breaking changes.
