Workflow activity updates (pinning)

Workflow administrators can pin a custom activity to prevent the system from automatically updating that activity when a new version is downloaded from the ServiceNow Store.

You can pin or unpin individual activities or set pinning within workflow properties that controls the versions used for all the activities in that workflow. This can result in two workflows using different versions of the same activity.
Note: Activity pinning and unpinning applies to the custom activities downloaded from the ServiceNow Store only, and does not apply to newly published activity definitions made locally on your instance. To make use of these locally updated custom activities, you must check out your workflow and manually add the activities.
