Triggering workflow upon page deactivation

Avatar

Level 3

Dear All,

I have a requirement where I need to trigger a custom workflow upon page deactivation. Author is expected only to deactivate page and I should internally trigger my workflow. Can someone please suggest with some sample code. 

I tried with EventHandler but FramworkUtil is not having a method - getBundle to get the bundle context. I am using osgi coe version 4.3.0 

Please provide some code example whcih I can use or refer.

Thanks,

Ravi

Hi,

if your author does not have the "replicate" privilege, the logic behind the "deactivate" buttons invokes the "request for deactivation" workflow by default (at least in Classic UI, haven't tested with TouchUI yet). And then you can customize this workflow.

kind regards,
Jörg

Authors will have replicate auhorization. I just need to get hold of my workflow as soon as he click deactivate button.

No. On deactivation I want to trigger my workflow whcih actually connects to Solr server to remove that index.

whenever a deactivate button/option is clicked (either from sidekick or siteadmin). it is eventually handled by (AFAIK) CQ.wcm.SiteAdmin.internalDeactivatePage function which in turn makes a call to /bin/replicate.json servlets that deactivates the page.

you can override that function to do your stuff.

hoep this helps. Sorry I dont have any code snippets to show right now.

Hey

I tried this approach for an asset deactivation for the same requirement as that of Ravi.

I added a custom step in the "Request for Deactivation" workflow, but the changes did not reflected. However they reflect for the "Schedule deactivation of page/asset" workflow.

Can you please suggest the fix?
