Editor with publisher rights should not be able to publish his own created pages


Hello everyone,

I am wondering if there is a smart solution for the following case:

Three content editors are also publishers (have both rights) so that they can create, edit and publish pages. However, they should be allowed to create own pages but never publish them as publishers. Each content editor (with publisher) should publish only pages created by other editors.

It is any way to restrict publishing of own created pages? Creating user roles in CMS Admin seems to be not a valid option.

Thanks in advance!

I think you would need to add some code to your project. I would solve it using the IValidate interface.

If you decide to use validation you could look at implement IContentSaveValidation (available in cms10). It extends IValidate so that there is also a context available so you can see the current SaveAction (e.g. Publish)

Thank you guys! Yes, we added a validator as a solution.
