  • Workflow: Proceed once approved by someone
    Posted: 05-21-2019, 2:42 PM

    I think that in my past dalliances with Workflow, I read about Workflow operators that had a workflow pause until a human approved the workflow to continue running. I remember it as one of those, "I don't need this now, but it might be helpful sometime," features. Now that I have a need for it, I can't find it, or if I've found it, I don't recognize it. 

    The use case is that we want to allow users to request restorations of files on file shares. We need a way to verify that the user has a business case for restoring the files or other objects and isn't doing something different than what they intend. 

    Regardless of the accuracy of my memory, can anyone suggest a way for "the powers that be" to make a workflow await approval before proceeding?

    There is a workflow for this:!/136/670/12221


    This workflow will automatically kick off when a restore is submitted and then an admin would have to approve it before the restore is actually submitted.
