Child activity's ignore the Tracking Participant / Tracking Profile ?


I did read Ron Jacobs blog and found this Library, incl. LoadActivity etc.
But when calling a child activity the current Tracking Participant and Tracking Profile is lost.
All the child activity's don't track information even thru E2E tracking is enabled in AppFabric.
With the current activity's i don't see a way to get it to work unless i create my own (native) activity's

After some testing i'm not sure if this is fixed the way i wanted. I downloaded 1.8.4 beta and started testing.

I enabled AppFabric E2E tracking in my workflow.xamlx and used an LoadAndInvokeActivity to invoke another workflow.
All the other workflow activities aren't visible (maybe not even tracked) in the AppFabric dashbaord.

Hi Ron,

Any luck on your end with this? When we use the 'out of the box' health monitoring in our web.config, we only see tracking for the elements on the surface of the main workflow. All child activities and child workflows called by the main workflow do not show up as tracked events using the AppFabric UI.

Thanks in advance,

Yes - I added code to Microsoft.Activities to make this work and I have unit tests that verify that it works as well. Have you tried updating the release of Microsoft.Activities? I'd like to know if it is not working.
