Workflow with User Generated Data?

by  ashleyaitken »  2012/04/14 16:52

 

I believe I understand (at least the basics of) the basic workflow for content created in the default JCR workspace and then published to the live workspace for the Web site.

My question relates to user generated data / content:  can user generated content be incorporated into a workflow?  For example, the moderation of forum posts or comments elsewhere?  

I got the impression that user generated content went straight to the live workspace and thus may not be able to participate in workflows - at least the regular "review before going live" type workflow.

Cheers,
Ashley.

    Hi Ashley,

    you're right on one point, the User Generated Content is directly inserted in the live workspace and there is no mechanism to make this content go back and forth between workspaces. But that doesn't mean that UGC can not be processed through a workflow before being visible or that you can not have a moderation mechanism (pre-moderation or post moderation) applied. The Forum jahiapp, for instance, and/or the blog includes examples of such moderation upon "live content". JBPM workflows can be implemented on "live content itelms" as well as staging content items (default ws).
