Custom Workflows


#1

What are the plans in terms of roles and workflows?

I’m currently investigating the headless CMS space for a project where we might need sophisticated roles and workflow capabilities. Squidex has many nice things to offer but seems to fall short at this for now.

Aside from the current investigation. If contributions are welcome, I’d like to contribute to the project if there are things to do in this area.

Hi,

it has not been decided yet. For me the requirements are not clear yet. What are your thoughts? Something simple like Kentico Cloud or more complex requirements? E.g. the rule system could also be extended to a workflow engine.

Contributions are welcome, therefore Squidex is Open Source.

Something simple like Kentico Cloud

For what I saw there it might be flexible enough for most of the use cases.

Will dive into the code base to develop a better understanding of where and how something like that would fit into Squidex.

Please see the following thread for discussions about roles: Roles and Permissions: Discussion

You might be able to leverage Orchard Core’s new Workflow module it stores in JSON.

The head of the Orchard Core open source project is also named Sebastian so how bad could it be :slight_smile:

It looks awesome, indeed :slight_smile:

Hi, I wrote an article how you can already implement it today: https://docs.squidex.io/guides/10-workflow
