Collaboration doc ?

Monday 20 June 2011 2:19:45 pm - 2 replies

Hello everyone,

Is there documentation somewhere about ezpublish "collaboration" system ? There is nothing on

What are the main concept about collaboration ?

What is the link between collaboration handlers, workflow types (ezapprove), and object states ?

Are they related and if yes how to use it ?

For now i managed to use a approval workflow but it seem to overlap other newer concept of ezpublish (object states)

Thanx for any help.

I think that's a great questions.

The approval workflow definitely overlaps with object states. You would need a combination of both to have an optimal approval system.

As far as I can tell, the collaboration system is only used for pending ezp versions needing approval. After a quick look at the DB tables, the collaboration system seems be be quite flexible and could serve other purposes. I wonder if the eZ Teamroom extension is based on the collaboration functionality -- anybody knows the answer to that?
