Advanced Workflow Module

Note: The SilverStripe 2.4 version of the module is available from the ss24 branch of the repository.

Overview

A module that provides an action / transition approach to workflow, where a single workflow process is split into multiple configurable states (Actions) with multiple possible transitions between the actions.

Please see the wiki at [https://github.com/silverstripe-australia/advancedworkflow/wiki] for more info!

Requirements

  • SilverStripe 2.4+
  • Queued Jobs module Required if you use the embargo/expiry functionality

Installation

Add

Object::add_extension('SiteTree', 'WorkflowApplicable');

to your site's _config.php file

To apply workflow to files, add this to _config.php:

Object::add_extension('File', 'FileWorkflowApplicable');

To enable embargo/expiry (scheduled publish/unpublish), use this:

Object::add_extension('SiteTree', 'WorkflowEmbargoExpiryExtension');

Make sure the QueuedJobs module is installed and configured correctly - you should have a cronjob similar to the following in place

*/1 * * * * cd  && sudo -u www php /var/www/sapphire/cli-script.php dev/tasks/ProcessJobQueueTask

This is an example only. The key is to run the task as the same user as the web server.
