SilverStripe Embargo-Expiry Module

This is stripped down version of the AdvancedWorkflow module. It only includes the embargo-expiry features, all other features have been removed from the original code.

Note: This is not compatible with the AdvancedWorkflow module!

Forked from AdvancedWorkflow module (commit: da4efb25984)


A module that provides embargo and expiry dates for scheduled publishing and unpublishing of content items.

Embargo - allow some content changes to only appear as published at some future date. Expiry - a date-time on which to unpublish some content changes.


  • SilverStripe Framework and CMS 3.1 or newer
  • Queued Jobs module (for embargo/expiry functionality)


Install with composer

composer require silverstripe/embargoexpiry

Then run a dev/build to rebuild your database and class cache

./framework/sake dev/build flush=all

Add WorkflowEmbargoExpiryExtension as a SiteTree extension, in your mysite/_config.yml file.

        - WorkflowEmbargoExpiryExtension

Ensure the QueuedJobs module is installed and configured correctly. You should have a cronjob similar to the following in place, running as the webserver user.

*/1 * * * * cd  && sudo -u www php /sites/default/www/framework/cli-script.php dev/tasks/ProcessJobQueueTask

Note: you'll need to update the path to cli-script.php to reference your own environment.
