Hello, i've read the workflow documentation in the SDK and it's mostly a reference to the diffrent elements in the workflow functionality in EPiServer CMS. Does anyone have a tutorial for how to build a simple workflow for EPiServer CMS?

    The article was moved from our previous knowledge base into EPiServer World.

    There will be three step when we will publish one page and availble into the web application which is then only visible.
    Author------> Approver----->Publisher.

    and for each lavel auto mate mail communication shoul be there. Task will created autometicaly.

    Each level will start when the prevoius level been completed

    Does your approver have to have publish rights for this workflow to work. We tried using out of the box Parallel approvel although if one of the users does not have publish rights the workflow does not work correctly.

    Hey anup thanks, is there anychance you can send me the source of your workflow as we are tying to do something similar and the out of the box workflows just are not working as we want them to.

    The author checks in a page, the approver only authorises the page and the last step would be for someone to actually accept and publish. The approver in the middle does not have publish rights.

    Cheers

    Yes we are trying for 3 level similar to how your diagram is. Author (Check's in Page) ---> Approver (Approves page / Declines Page) ---> Publisher (Has the final say if the page should be published or not).

    Approver and Publisher will be different users and the approver must not have publish rights.

    Regards

    Hi Anup.

    We tried this using both parallel and sequenctial approvel, although if one of the people who are approving the pages does not have publish rights the workflow does not work correctly. This is why I was interested in your custom 3 level workflow which you have developed.

    That is fine I completly understand about sharing source code and it not being possible as we would also be in the same situation. This work was only for proof of concept and just wanted to make sure it was possible before I continued.

    Thanks for your help.

    just follow the sample workflow which have geveen from episerver side developed two more user control for approver and publisher follow the existing user control and do the operation. I think I have geiven you the path follw the sample workflow you will understand properly Ithink so. create all controll and neccessary class file for the approver & publisher, and if you developed properly then when you are going to deploy into the epi server side there we can see 3 levels of user

    1. Author

    2. Approver.

    3. Publisher.

    if it is through then almost you have done..

    If any help let me know....

    Regards

    Anup
