This package provides two custom workflow actions for IBM Lotus Web Content Management to further integrate the functionality of track changes. The workflow actions allow you to either automatically accept all changes as part of workflow, or to prevent a content item from being published until all changes have been accepted.
The custom workflow actions are provided as a war file within the dist directory of the download. You should follow the instructions from the IBM Lotus Web Content Management documentation to install the war file within your server. You will need to specify a context path during the installation - this is never used by the workflow actions and can be set to any value.
You will need to create a custom workflow action, just as you would create a Publish Action. Consult the IBM Lotus Web Content Management documentation for further information on creating custom actions.
The package provides two custom actions, both provided by the custom action factory “Track Changes Action Factory”:
|Accept All Changes||Accepts all changes and allows the document to move to the next stage.|
|Disallow Unapproved Changes||Prevents the document from moving to the next stage until all changes are accepted.|
The action should then be added to a workflow stage, for example your published workflow stage. You should ensure that only of these actions is added to the workflow stage and that it is the first action performed when entering the stage.
