Workflow to Publish only approved content

Avatar

Level 2

I'd like to create a workflow to publish but only on content that has been approved.

 

For example, say you have a workflow for content approval:

 

start approval workflow for content-fragment-1 -> content-fragment-1 approved -> end approval workflow

 

Then you would have 

 

start publish workflow for content-fragment-1 -> content-fragment-1 publish -> end publish workflow

 

But, what happens if someone makes a changes content-fragment-1 between the approval workflow and the publish workflow?

 

Is there a way to only publish approved content?

@AEM_PARTY : Try to create one single workflow to achieve this . Lock the page once workflow started and unlock it once workflow finished.

Thanks for the replies and good points.

 

The reason there is no publish from the review flow is that we may want to hold the publish to a particular time (e.g. after business hours, wait until the weekend etc)

 

However, if a further edit takes place on the content after review but before publish we will end up with a non-reviewed change going out.

 

We could indeed lock the content until published but that seems draconian for a change that isn't scheduled to go out on a Friday night say.
