[ConfigurationPropertyAttribute("validateOnCreate", DefaultValue = true)]
public bool ValidateOnCreate { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if validation will occur on creation; otherwise, false.

When this property is set to true, the workflow validation is executed every time CreateWorkflow is called. If validation errors are found, a WorkflowValidationFailedException error is thrown.

When this property is set to false, CreateWorkflow creates a workflow instance and skips validation. In this case, the host application must ensure that the workflow is properly configured, or the runtime error occurs.

The default value for this property is true.
