Sitecore Standard Template: Workflow Section

<p>This blog post contains information about the fields in the Workflow section of the standard template in the Sitecore ASP.NET web Content Management System (CMS) and Experience Platform (XP). For more information about the standard template and topics mentioned in this blog post, see the links in the Resources section at the end of this page.</p>

The Workflow section of the Sitecore standard template contains the following fields that control workflow for the item:

  • __Workflow (Sitecore.FieldIDs.Workflow): The workflow currently associated with the item.
  • __Workflow state (Sitecore.FieldIDs.WorkflowState): The workflow state currently associated with the item.
  • __Lock (Sitecore.FieldIDs.Lock): Identifies the owner of the lock associated with the item, preventing other non-admin users from editing that item.
  • __Default workflow (Sitecore.FieldIDs.DefaultWorkflow): The workflow into which the system should place versions of the item when CMS users edit it. In general, unlike other fields in the Workflow section, the __Default workflow field should have a value in standard values for the data template associated with the item.
