Enabling Workflow for Objects

Available: Liferay DXP/Portal 7.4+

Every published object is integrated automatically with the Workflow framework, so you can direct object entry creation through a defined review and approval process. How you enable a Workflow for an object depends on the object’s scope: Company or Site.
