Intention

Describe how to create and interact with a Workflow on DotCMS by using Rest on a Caas philosophy

DotCMS 5.x has introduced a lot of improvements to workflow, now almost every action on dotCMS is a workflow, it means you can handle permissions and customize actions such as “Save/Publish” in order to add custom or different behaviors, etc.

Let’s start creating a new Workflow, with Steps and Actions:

Create a Workflow Scheme using REST

Adding a Workflow Scheme

All you need to create an empty scheme is just the name and the description.

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/schemes -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ 
    "schemeName":"Test Scheme", "schemeDescription":"This is a test scheme"
    }'

Output:

{
   "errors":[

   ],
   "entity":{
      "id":"3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46",
      "creationDate":1538412762392,
      "name":"Test Scheme",
      "description":"This is a test scheme",
      "archived":false,
      "mandatory":false,
      "defaultScheme":false,
      "modDate":1538412762392,
      "entryActionId":null,
      "system":false
   },
   "messages":[

   ],
   "i18nMessagesMap":{

   },
   "permissions":[

   ]
}

As you can see our Test Scheme has been already created.

Adding Steps

Now we are going to add three steps: Unpublish, Publish, Archive

Adding the “Unpublish”, we are not going to use the escalationAction nor time, so we pass them empty.

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/steps -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ 
    "schemeId":"3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46", "stepName":"Unpublish", "escalationAction":"","escalationTime":"" 
    }'

OUTPUT

{
   "errors":[

   ],
   "entity":{
      "id":"a9ec35d5-d0bd-4c8f-916b-4daa17858974",
      "creationDate":1548963298453,
      "name":"Unpublish",
      "schemeId":"3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46",
      "myOrder":0,
      "resolved":false,
      "enableEscalation":false,
      "escalationAction":null,
      "escalationTime":0
   },
   "messages":[

   ],
   "i18nMessagesMap":{

   },
   "permissions":[

   ]
}

Adding the “Publish”, we are not going to use the escalationAction nor time, so we pass them empty.

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/steps -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ 
    "schemeId":"3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46", "stepName":"Publish", "escalationAction":"","escalationTime":"" 
    }'

OUTPUT

{
   "errors":[

   ],
   "entity":{
      "id":"9d7a7e4c-9384-4cba-8710-ea875ef35b90",
      "creationDate":1548963444065,
      "name":"Publish",
      "schemeId":"3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46",
      "myOrder":1,
      "resolved":false,
      "enableEscalation":false,
      "escalationAction":null,
      "escalationTime":0
   },
   "messages":[

   ],
   "i18nMessagesMap":{

   },
   "permissions":[

   ]
}

Adding the “Archive”, we are not going to use the escalationAction nor time, so we pass them empty.

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/steps -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ 
    "schemeId":"3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46", "stepName":"Archive", "escalationAction":"","escalationTime":"" 
    }'

OUTPUT

{
   "errors":[

   ],
   "entity":{
      "id":"93e66213-6252-4873-8365-b031df54ce62",
      "creationDate":1548963610852,
      "name":"Archive",
      "schemeId":"3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46",
      "myOrder":2,
      "resolved":false,
      "enableEscalation":false,
      "escalationAction":null,
      "escalationTime":0
   },
   "messages":[

   ],
   "i18nMessagesMap":{

   },
   "permissions":[

   ]
}

As you can see we have now three steps already created, in addition you can pass the property “stepResolved”:true, if you want to mark the step as a Resolved.

Adding Actions

Actions on dotCMS 5.x are not strictly associated to the steps, instead of steps, they are related to the scheme, so that they are being shareable between steps, for instance if an action is associated to several steps, and you make a change over it, the change will be reflected over all steps since all of them are reference the same action instead of keeping a copy of the action.

That said, let’s start creating the actions.

Adding Save Content Step

Now let’s add an action to Save Content, the action will be associated to the recently schema created (instead of step) and the next step will be unpublish. Pay attention to the showOn field, it is a now feature on workflow and it provides the ability to control on the UI when a workflow will be showed.

LISTING, EDITING: Listing means content search, site browser, etc. Editing means content editing, so if you want an action only on the content edit you can just set EDITING, or set both to have it on all places.

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{
      "actionName": "Save Content",
      "schemeId": "3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46",
      "actionCondition": "",
      "actionNextStep": "a9ec35d5-d0bd-4c8f-916b-4daa17858974",
      "actionNextAssign": "654b0931-1027-41f7-ad4d-173115ed8ec1",
      "actionRoleHierarchyForAssign": false,
      "actionAssignable": false,
      "actionCommentable": true,
      "whoCanUse":[],
      "showOn": [
        "UNPUBLISHED",
        "NEW",
        "LOCKED",
        "PUBLISHED",
        "EDITING"
      ]
}' 

OUTPUT

{
   "errors":[

   ],
   "entity":{
      "id":"af85f17f-3908-4e80-9dee-862be0e018da",
      "name":"Save Content",
      "schemeId":"3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46",
      "condition":"",
      "nextStep":"a9ec35d5-d0bd-4c8f-916b-4daa17858974",
      "nextAssign":"654b0931-1027-41f7-ad4d-173115ed8ec1",
      "icon":"workflowIcon",
      "roleHierarchyForAssign":false,
      "assignable":false,
      "commentable":true,
      "order":0,
      "owner":null,
      "nextStepCurrentStep":false,
      "showOn":[
         "PUBLISHED",
         "LOCKED",
         "UNPUBLISHED",
         "NEW",
         "EDITING"
      ]
   },
   "messages":[

   ],
   "i18nMessagesMap":{

   },
   "permissions":[

   ]
}

As we mentioned the action is currently associated to the scheme but it is not reflected yet on the UI on the workflow portlet, the next step will be associated the created action to all steps we want, so let’s start associating to the Unpublish and Publish steps.

Relating to Unpublish Step

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/steps/a9ec35d5-d0bd-4c8f-916b-4daa17858974/actions -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionId": "af85f17f-3908-4e80-9dee-862be0e018da" }' 

OUTPUT

{"errors":[],"entity":"Ok","messages":[],"i18nMessagesMap":{},"permissions":[]}

Relating to Publish Step

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/steps/9d7a7e4c-9384-4cba-8710-ea875ef35b90/actions -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionId": "af85f17f-3908-4e80-9dee-862be0e018da" }' 

OUTPUT

{"errors":[],"entity":"Ok","messages":[],"i18nMessagesMap":{},"permissions":[]}

Now you can see how it looks on the UI/Portlet

Now, let’s continue with a few more actions:

Add Publish Action:

Keep in mind this action will be showed only on the content search, but not in the content editor, however you are free to add more settings, also in order to publish the content has to be created, so “NEW” is not part of it. Finally the action will move to the Publish Step.

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{
      "actionName": "Publish Content",
      "schemeId": "3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46",
      "actionCondition": "",
      "actionNextStep": "9d7a7e4c-9384-4cba-8710-ea875ef35b90",
      "actionNextAssign": "654b0931-1027-41f7-ad4d-173115ed8ec1",

      "actionAssignable": false,
      "actionCommentable": true,
      "whoCanUse":[],
      "showOn": [
        "UNPUBLISHED",
        "LOCKED",
        "PUBLISHED",
        "LISTING"
      ]
}' 

OUTPUT

{
   "errors":[

   ],

      "order":0,
      "owner":null,
      "nextStepCurrentStep":false,
      "showOn":[
         "PUBLISHED",
         "LOCKED",
         "UNPUBLISHED",
         "LISTING"
      ]
   },
   "messages":[

   ],
   "i18nMessagesMap":{

   },
   "permissions":[

   ]
}

Add UnPublish Action:

Similar to the Publish, unpublish will be only enable on the content search (LISTING) and also a content has to be PUBLISH in order to be unpublished, the next step will be UnPublish

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{
      "actionName": "Unpublish Content",

Making the relationship with steps

Associating Publish action to the unpublish/publish step

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/steps/a9ec35d5-d0bd-4c8f-916b-4daa17858974/actions -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionId": "f1e2a5bf-fc84-4061-9e79-18e053b45675" }'

Associating Unpublish action to the publish step

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/steps/9d7a7e4c-9384-4cba-8710-ea875ef35b90/actions -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionId": "75f216ff-148e-4e18-b46d-ed65d5bd0053" }' 

Associating Archive action to the unpublish step

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/steps/db145b25-f868-4dc7-a88e-d68d9f6f6040/actions -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionId": "75bd6aad-e57e-45e1-8058-ce8513914f9e" }' 

Associating Unarchive action to the Archive step

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/steps/93e66213-6252-4873-8365-b031df54ce62/actions -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionId": "98ba3aff-8375-4161-a1ec-32ca60a11ddf" }'  

Associating Delete action to the Archive step

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/steps/93e66213-6252-4873-8365-b031df54ce62/actions -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionId": "d642ff4f-818d-4a29-a791-120ba758d817" }' 

Now we have our basic workflow done, but we need to customize the action, if you go to the UI you will see Action are set just with the “notify assignee” actionlet, so let’s start with it.

Adding the Actionlets to the Actions

The actionlets are tied to the Action, so let’s start fetching all of them:

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/schemes/3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46/actions -H "Content-Type:application/json" 

This endpoint is gonna return all the actions associated to the scheme, keep in mind that might exists action that you can not see in the UI (Workflow Portlet) but still being available.

That done, let’s start customizing the “Save Content Action”:

The first thing we have to do is using the action id recovery on last request (af85f17f-3908-4e80-9dee-862be0e018da), check if the action has any actionlet already set, so

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions/af85f17f-3908-4e80-9dee-862be0e018da/actionlets -H "Content-Type:application/json"

                        "required": false
                    },
                    {

                    }
                ],
                "nextStep": null,
                "howTo": "This actionlet will send an email to the assignee (or assignees if the next assign is a role).  It uses a default email subject and message, but can be overridden.

    ],
    "messages": [],
    "i18nMessagesMap": {},
    "permissions": []
}

As you mentioned, there is a default actionlet added to the action we have created, so let’s clean up before continue with our actionlets, remove the actionlet e0139991-a3db-4de5-9dd0-3c625d0effd5:

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X DELETE https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actionlets/e0139991-a3db-4de5-9dd0-3c625d0effd5 -H "Content-Type:application/json"

After that you can double check the actionlet associated to the Save Content action (af85f17f-3908-4e80-9dee-862be0e018da) again and will see there is not any actionlet associated.

Now repeat the procedure for the rest of the actions; as soon as you done with the deleting of all previous actionlets on our actions, let start customizing the Save Content action (af85f17f-3908-4e80-9dee-862be0e018da). The Save will only have a Save Content actionlet, so in order to know the information to associated to the Save Content Action, first let’s ask to the API all of Actionlets enable for us.

 curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actionlets/

In the previous response, you will see all actionlets available on your instance, so let’s find the one called Save content:

{
            "name": "Save Draft content",
            "parameters": null,
            "nextStep": null,
            "howTo": "This actionlet will do checkin as draft the content.",
            "localizedName": "Save Draft content",
            "localizedHowto": "com.dotmarketing.portlets.workflows.actionlet.SaveContentAsDraftActionlet.howTo",
            "actionClass": "com.dotmarketing.portlets.workflows.actionlet.SaveContentAsDraftActionlet"
        }

Each entry give us details about the actionlet such as parameters and so on, by now just the actionClass property is relevant for us, so let’s add it to the Save Content Action.

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions/af85f17f-3908-4e80-9dee-862be0e018da/actionlets -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionletClass": "com.dotmarketing.portlets.workflows.actionlet.SaveContentAsDraftActionlet" }'        

Now if you open on the Workflow Portlet the Save Content Action, you will see the Save Content actionlet already added.

The next action will be Publish Content, we will add two: Publish Content and Unlock Content actionlets.

Adding the Publish Content actionlet

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions/f1e2a5bf-fc84-4061-9e79-18e053b45675/actionlets -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionletClass": "com.dotmarketing.portlets.workflows.actionlet.PublishContentActionlet" }'        

Adding the Unlock Content actionlet

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions/f1e2a5bf-fc84-4061-9e79-18e053b45675/actionlets -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionletClass": "com.dotmarketing.portlets.workflows.actionlet.CheckinContentActionlet" }'        

Next will be Unpublish Action, we will add just the unpublish content actionlet:

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions/75f216ff-148e-4e18-b46d-ed65d5bd0053/actionlets -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionletClass": "com.dotmarketing.portlets.workflows.actionlet.UnpublishContentActionlet" }'        

Now is the chance for the Archive Action, it will have two: Archive Content and Unlock Content actionlets

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions/ad517cde-2a2f-4dc7-b7d4-c820b8529645/actionlets -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionletClass": "com.dotmarketing.portlets.workflows.actionlet.ArchiveContentActionlet" }'      
```
curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions/ad517cde-2a2f-4dc7-b7d4-c820b8529645/actionlets -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionletClass": "com.dotmarketing.portlets.workflows.actionlet.CheckinContentActionlet" }'        

Unarchive Content will be the next on our list, only Unarchive content actionlet will be needed.

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions/98ba3aff-8375-4161-a1ec-32ca60a11ddf/actionlets -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionletClass": "com.dotmarketing.portlets.workflows.actionlet.UnarchiveContentActionlet" }'        

Finally, our last action to customize will be the Delete Content Action, and will contains only one actionlet the Delete Content actionlet, so let’s do it

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions/d642ff4f-818d-4a29-a791-120ba758d817/actionlets -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "actionletClass": "com.dotmarketing.portlets.workflows.actionlet.DeleteContentActionlet" }'        

Now we have already done our test workflow, the next step will be create our own Content Type and associated a couple workflows to it, including the Test Workflow.

Create a ContentType using REST

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/contenttype -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "clazz": "com.dotcms.contenttype.model.type.ImmutableSimpleContentType", "defaultType": false, "name": "My Test Content Type", "description": "THE DESCRIPTION", "host": "48190c8c-42c4-46af-8d1a-0cd5db894797", "owner": "dotcms.org.1", "variable": "TheContentType1", "fixed": false, "system": false, "workflow":["3b5b81ed-8461-4af7-8960-57db7ca00b46"] }'        

OUTPUT

{
   "errors":[

   ],
   "entity":[
      {
         "owner":"dotcms.org.1",
         "multilingualable":false,
         "modDate":1549264661000,
         "description":"THE DESCRIPTION",
         "versionable":true,
         "defaultType":false,
         "baseType":"CONTENT",
         "system":false,
         "folder":"SYSTEM_FOLDER",
         "name":"My Test Content Type",
         "variable":"TheContentType1",
         "host":"48190c8c-42c4-46af-8d1a-0cd5db894797",
         "fixed":false,
         "id":"671b2dbe-4bae-40ae-8f0a-da998248ebf1",
         "fields":[

         "iDate":1549264661000,
         "workflows":[

      }
   ],
   "messages":[

   ],
   "i18nMessagesMap":{

   },
   "permissions":[

   ]
}

Now you have an empty content type, let’s add a couple fields:

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v2/contenttype/TheContentType1/fields -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '[
   {
      "clazz":"com.dotcms.contenttype.model.field.ImmutableTextField",
      "sortOrder":2,
      "name":"title",
      "dataType":"TEXT",
      "regexCheck":"",
      "defaultValue":"",
      "hint":"",
      "required":false,
      "searchable":false,
      "indexed":false,
      "listed":false,
      "unique":false,
      "contentTypeId":"28bb7ead-eb26-44e7-b43c-e6740fcae566"
   }
]'

OUTPUT

{
   "errors":[

   ],
   "entity":{
      "modDate":1549264785000,
      "indexed":false,
      "defaultValue":"",

      "readOnly":false,
      "searchable":false,
      "required":false,
      "listed":false,
      "unique":false,
      "sortOrder":2,
      "hint":"",
      "name":"title",
      "variable":"title",

      "clazz":"com.dotcms.contenttype.model.field.ImmutableTextField",
      "iDate":1549264785000
   },
   "messages":[

   ],
   "i18nMessagesMap":{

   },
   "permissions":[

   ]
}

Adding the second field:

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X POST https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v2/contenttype/TheContentType1/fields -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '[
   {
      "clazz":"com.dotcms.contenttype.model.field.ImmutableTextField",

      "unique":false,
      "contentTypeId":"671b2dbe-4bae-40ae-8f0a-da998248ebf1"
   }
]'

OUTPUT

{

   },
   "messages":[

   ],
   "i18nMessagesMap":{

   },
   "permissions":[

   ]
}

Fire new Content Type content using REST

Now lets add a content by calling the Save Content from the first step, we are adding 3 properties on the json; the content type and the two fields that we have created previously (title and value). The result will be the contentlet added.

curl -u admin@dotcms.com:admin -X PUT https://demo.dotcms.com/api/v1/workflow/actions/af85f17f-3908-4e80-9dee-862be0e018da/fire -H "Content-Type:application/json" -d '{ "contentletFormData": { "contentType":"TheContentType1", "title":"test1", "value":"value1"}}'
