In Child Session, a workflow will not be updated
Hi Allan, When I updated a workflow in host session and saved it, the updated workflow logic will take effect in host session, but not in Child session. For Child session, it seems OpenRPA cache a workflow and doesn't read xaml file from disk again for next run. So it can't reflect the updated content. Only if I close OpenRPA in Child session and reopen it, then the updated workflow will appear.
Please confirm this behavior and I think it would better not cache a workflow, but instead read it from disk for each time to avoid this issue.
Also I found once Child Session is open, it will never exit until host machine reboots. I googled and an article said log-off can terminate Child Session. But I don't find way to log off. Simply closing Child Session window can't work. It's still there.

If you use an updated openrpa client and use a production openflow that supported watches, that will not be an issue.
Yes, child sessions will not logoff automatically, just do a log off, if you don't want to keep it running.
or open a command prompt and type
