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.
I once found some piece of code in the ATCT migrator once:
"""migrate the workflow state
wfh = getattr(self.old, 'workflow_history', None)
wfh = copyPermMap(wfh)
self.new.workflow_history = wfh
I'd say that you might look into what workflow_history looks like. AFAIK
the review_state is actually just the last entry in this and not
