Termination Tracking Service Sample

Download sample

Termination Tracking Service is an example of a custom tracking service. It logs the termination events and the associated terminated information in the event log. The sample contains a simple workflow with a TerminateActivity activity. The reason for termination is stated in the properties of the TerminateActivity activity. When you run the sample, you get an event log entry that states the instance ID and the reason for termination.

The Termination Tracking Service is an extension of the TrackingService class, and it uses the event log to record workflow termination events. By adding the Termination Tracking Service to the WorkflowRuntime as a service, you enable it to automatically track workflow termination events with no further configuration needed.
