Specifies the maximum number of steps allowed in any workflow process or subprocess. Once this level is exceeded, Identity Manager terminates the workflow. This setting is used as a safeguard for detecting when a workflow is stuck in an infinite loop. The default value set in the workflow itself is 0, which indicates that Identity Manager should pull the actual setting value from the global setting stored in the System Configuration object’s workflow.maxSteps attribute. The value of this global setting is 5000.
