Non admin users aren't triggering workflows

Non admin users aren't triggering workflows

Monday 28 May 2012 9:06:34 am - 1 reply


I have a 'before publish' approval workflow setup for content on my site. I have to the approver group set to a group of 'editor' users. I have also given these users collaboration privileges so they have access to the collaboration page to approve/deny changes.

Although, If I log in as one of the users in the approver group and make a content change, it doesn't trigger the workflow, they change is just published. But if I log in as another user that isn't in the approver group, for example an administrator, then make a content change, it will trigger the workflow successfully. I can then log in as one of the approver group user and approve/deny that change.

Are there more privileges I need to give to the 'editors' so that their change will trigger the workflow?

I know it seems weird that I want to have the same people make edits that will in-turn approve these edits, but I want to have one group of editors that will essentially approve each other's edits.

Hi Josh,

For the two cases, are you sure that you aren't executing the workflow for on editor user? Are there restrictions on the PHP code?

Best regards,
