Workflow rules to Process Builder with API

Hi everyone,

We are working on consolidating some of our workflow rules into process builders and so far we have done so by through using the UI. 

I read that it is possible to access workflow rules and process builder metadata, but is there a way to create a new process builder from the workflow rules using just the API?

Thanks for any help/recommendations.

Hi Jacob,

There is no way other than calling an Apex class in the process builder to fire an external API call. The process builder doesn't have an equivalent to the outbound messages in Workflow rules.

I hope you find the above solution helpful. If it does, please mark as Best Answer to help others too.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Jacob,

No you cannot create a process builder from the workflow rules, as we do not have any action to perform from the workflow.

Thank You,
