Workflow Items

Sitecore Workflows

  • A collection of states and commands that you define for an item to move through before becoming publishable
  • Used to control when a content item is published
  • Can contain any number of different workflow states and be as simple or complex as required
  • Ensures that content always receives the appropriate reviews and approval before being published to the live site
  • Should be based on the business requirements of the organization

Workflow Items

  • Sitecore uses a hierarchy of items in the Content Tree to define workflows
  • All workflow related items are stored in the /sitecore/system/Workflows folder of the Content Tree
  • Workflow is the main item and contains all of the subitems that make up the workflow
  • Workflow States are the basic building blocks of the workflow that represent the different stages in your content creation and review process
  • Workflow Commands  are the workflow items that are used to move the content items from one workflow state to another
  • Workflow Actions are the definition items for code that is to be automatically executed when content items are in a particular workflow state or when a particular workflow command is executed
