Additional notes:

The IBM Case Foundation V5.2 software license is required if you want to use the full workflow capability feature. The full workflow capability feature includes designing and launched new Process service workflows.

Without the IBM Case Foundation V5.2 software license, you can only launch and process existing workflows on the Content Platform Engine. These existing workflows are inherited in an upgrade or a migration from another system with licensing for the full workflow capability feature.

Installing the IBM Case Foundation V5.2 software component is not required for launching or processing existing or new workflows on the Content Platform Engine.
