Chapter 20. Approval Workflow for Messages > Step 4: Testing the Workflow

Step 4: Testing the Workflow

The workflow you've created in this chapter will only work with new messages, of course. So, in the folder in which you created the workflow components, create a new message board and add a new message to it. If you now click the Workflows tab, you see that the tab is not empty anymore. In the selection box, you can see all the available workflows; currently, there should be only one, called Message Publication Review (remember the workflow title in the XML?). You can choose this workflow.

Below the selection box you can see the current status of the message, which is private at this point; remember, the transition from initial to private is automatic, based on the workflow definition. In the last entry, you now see the possible transitions you can execute from this state. Currently, you can only use Submit Message to submit the message for review. So you should select that transition and then click Make Transition.
