Hi guys,

I'm writing some migration code that needs to force a workflow state. That is, a given content item has a workflow with states A, B and C, and depending on some external state, I need to force it to be in state B, including having B's security settings.

I've had a look at the API, but it's all very geared towards transitions rather than setting states explicitly. Before I resort to pdb, does anyone know the relevant part of the DCWorkflow API I should use to force a state? I don't mind mucking about with internals, obviously.

You'll probably have to construct the dictionary that describes the state/comment/transition time etc yourself and then append it at the end of the workflow history. At least that's what we've been doing a few times for migration scripts. Then you can run the workflow security updating methods and recatalog things like allowedRolesAndUsers.
